L.D. is leaving for school and her dad tells her to wash the dishes after school. She wants to help him fix cars, but he wants her to start acting like a lady. After L.D. leaves she tells him to drop dead. Just then her dad grabs his chests and tells his assistant to call a doctor.
At school L.D. complains about her father and she casually mentions that she sometimes wishes her dad was out of her life. She returns home to find out her dad's in the hospital. She skips meeting for a project with Voula and Spike. She also doesn't want to go to the hospital. Arthur and Yick say over the intercom that a snake is on the loose in the school. Melanie freaks out and wears boots with tape around them. L.D. goes to the hospital to visit her dad. Before she gets to his room, she begins to have memories of when her mom was sick. She freaks out and leaves.
Voula and Spike gets the class to pitch in money to buy L.D.'s dad some flowers. They take them to him and find out L.D. hasn't visited him yet. Voula finds L.D. in the gym and wonders why she didn't visit her dad. L.D. says that when her mom went into the hospital, she died even though everyone said she was going to be ok. Meanwhile, Arthur and Yick find the snake. Melanie realizes the snake isn't as scary as she thought it was.
L.D. finally visits her dad in the hospital. She's sad when she sees he's not in the room, but everything is ok when he comes in and is ready to leave the hospital. He puts L.D.'s cap on her and says it's hard taking care of a teenager, but she says he'll get over it.
