Evan and Maggie are late for the barbecue. Evan doesn't really want to go because Susan will be there. Maggie says they should go in order to be neighbourly, so he reluctantly agrees.
The neighbours are all hoping that Harold will stay. Joel comes up and Flick goes off to the house to avoid him. The real estate agent rings for Harold.
