Inside there is a woman whom looked like she is in her 20s, cleaning the house. "Hello, sweetie" the woman said. Clare took a look at Jim and said "You are married" and ran out the door "OMG that is gross." Jim said then he realized Clare has ran out, he quickly chase after her and said "Clare! Wait! That is my mum!!!"
It turns out Jim's mother and Marilyn and her father George had a fight, so she packed up her stuff to New York and crashed at her son's place. Jim didn't catch up with Clare and went back inside. Inside the house Marilyn has already roll up newspaper and start chasing Jim around saying "what did I told you about sex before marriage" Jim said "Mum I am 28 years old, I think I am more then old enough" Marilyn stop for a few second and said "so? haven't you heard about AIDS?" and start chasing Jim around with the news paper again.
Jim's brother Brett heard about the story, Jim try to prove to Clare who won't talk to him, that Marilyn really is his mum. George came to Marilyn the two of them talk things through and are going back to California to enjoy their semi retirement life style.
Episode 2: Jim was in the hallway of his apartment three weeks later and when he opened his front door, he saw his mum there again, turns out, because Marilyn look like she is in her 20s, everybody in the retirement village think she is some 20 years old gold digger trying to con old man George, annoyed by it, George and Marilyn, decided to move back to New York, but because they already sold their house here, they crashed at Jim's apartment till they can find a place. Jim desperately try to help his parents to find a place, so they would move out of his home. When George and Marilyn notice an apartment in Brett's building that might be for sale. Brett whom don't want his parents living so close, told George and Marilyn about the fact there is an apartment in Jim's building for sell. It is a fact Jim tried to hide on purpose, so, his parents won't live in his building. George and Marilyn bought the apartment in Jim's building.
