  • Paulie drunkenly stumbles home, humming a Christmas carol.
  • Inside the house, Rocky tells Adrian that Paulie always wants a job, but he doesn't know nothing about fighting.
  • Paulie overhears him, and tells him to get out of the house.
  • Adrian says it isn't just his house, so Paulie tells them both to get out.
  • He takes a baseball bat and breaks a lamp and a table.
  • He tells Adrian that she owes him, and she tells him that she cooks, she cleans, and she does his laundry. She doesn't owe him a thing.
