Official synopsis: Tara begins to wonder if people really want her around when she’s just herself. She tries to talk to her daughter Kate about sex but she clearly wants to avoid the subject. When son Marshall tells her that his English teacher may phone to talk about a disagreement they had at school, he decides that he would like his Dad take care of it. As a result, another of Tara’s personalities makes an appearance. This time it’s Alice, a old-fashioned housewife who bakes and irons clothes and the like. Her straightforward manner does solve several problems however.

Please note that recaps feature spoilers on the individual episode.

The episode opens to Tara on camera again explaining her annoyed feelings about the alters. The family has a meeting about what happened in the previous episode while she wasn’t herself. She isn’t used to the alters because she had just gotten off her medicine that kept them away. While doing the laundry, she finds Marshall’s sheets smell like urine.

Marshall shares a problem with his English teacher. He thinks on a higher level about a novel and sees an erotic meaning to it, which upsets the teacher. Their conversation is interrupted by Kate yelling profanities. Marshall only wants his dad to go talk to his teacher, which makes Tara feel rejected by her family.

While shopping with Charmaine , Tara runs into parents from the kids’ school. They say they never expected her to contribute to the bake sale due to her DID, which upsets Tara and makes her transition intoAlice. Alice shows up to the meeting with Marshall’s teacher and successfully changes his mind by ridiculing how he was treated in high school. Out to dinner at the fictional restaurant Barnabeez, Alice upsetsKate by not being Tara. Kate purposefully upsetsAlice in the bathroom where she washes her mouth out with soap.

The commotion is overheard by Max, who comforts Alice . Kate , upset and needing a break from home, applies for a job at Barnabeez.Max later talks to Kate at home and shows a photo album Alice made for her, which makes her better, but sad about her mom’s DID. The episode ends with Alice trying to get intimate with Max , with the idea of a baby in mind. She thinks the IUD Tara has won’t work since she doesn’t believe in them. Max refuses, and they both go to sleep.
