But happily-ever-after all under the same roof doesn't last long. For one thing, Rich doesn't exactly agree living with everyone is ideal. With their gay/straight double wedding fast approaching, he wants to find a place of their own instead of continuing to sponge off of Marcus and Kevin.

Why couldn't I be tear-free for one freakin' moment? "Maybe I need to know I'm not broken. Even though this horrible thing happened, I'm still ... useful."
