When Jimmy realizes he needs a daycare service for Hope, he goes to Sabrina, an employee at the local grocery story and whom he has an infatuation with, for help. She directs him to her cousin, Shelley, whom Jimmy had hooked up with two years previously. Jimmy is reluctant to hurt her feeling when she still cares for him, but has a dead tooth on one of her front teeth. When he does hurt her feelings however, Shelley starts charging her services. Meanwhile, Jimmy pressures Virginia to quit smoking for Hope's health; Virginia will only to so if Burt convinces her mentally unstable grandmother Maw Maw to quit also, which is no easy task. During one of her lucid episodes, Maw Maw reveals she initially quit smoking in the 1970s to live long enough to see Virginia grow up. Virginia decides to follow suit and offers Jimmy money she usually spends on cigarettes to pay for Shelley's day care.
