When a young actress dies, the cast in her latest slasher movie agrees to pitch in (more or less) for a cheap funeral at Fisher & Sons. As David gets both good and bad news from a trip to the doctor, Nate's MRI tests reveal he has Arterio-Venous Malformation (AVM), a condition that might, or might not, be fatal. Acting on advice she read in a book targeted to parents of gay and lesbian children, Ruth invites Nate, David and Claire - and their significant others - to join her and Nikolai for dinner. The meal is illuminating, at least for Nate.
