While meeting his mother for dinner that night, he is annoyed to find out that Sharon has also invited his father, and he threatens to leave. He harbors a lot of resentment for Bert for walking out on his marriage to his mother. Sharon explains that there are always two sides to a story, and that a relationship ending is always complicated, especially after thirty-five years.
Michael has been hired for the position of clinical device specialist at Kender Pharma.
