CJ is haunted by the spectre of his father Rev. Walker. In the Midwest, CJ makes a deal with Oscar to pick up the trash in his parking lot in exchange for food. Oscar feels sorry for them, but also finds Darlene attractive and Darlene flirts back. Oscar offers them a place to stay for the night, but jealous CJ says no and pushes Darlene to leave promising her a hotel room for the night.
