The mold problem at the Heffernan's house is much worse than anyone expected. When they find out that the removal of the mold is going to cost them $12,000, Doug has to ask his parents for a loan to help pay for it. Doug's father wants to know why Doug and Carrie don't have any savings, and when they go through financial papers, it's discovered that Carrie spends way too much money on her wardrobe. Doug tries to tell Carrie that she needs to curb her spending habits, which does not go over well with her.
