“Kids Say the Darndest Things”
Jabari runs away, hoping to cause his parents to get back together...
Jabari becomes extremely sullen and disrespectful, and begins talking back to his parents. After he runs away from Joan's house while she is watching him, Maya and Darnell finally learn the source of Jabari's anger: he is upset over Darnell's engagement because he wants his parents to reunite. Maya and Darnell struggle over what to do about their son's despair. Meanwhile, Lynn and Toni refuse to believe that William's depression stems from his car's inability to pass a smog test. They insist that he is actually upset about the break-up with Joan, and pressure him to share his feelings.
