When Doug starts to clean out the basement by removing Arthur's things, he finds a trunk in which Arthur has stored memorabelia from his past, including mementos from the acting career he gave up when Carrie was born. Doug has second thoughts about sending Arthur away, now that he has seen proof that he can be a selfless, caring father.  
Meanwhile, It is Danny and Spence's two year anniversary of living together.
