The death of an inventor forms the backdrop for this episode, which sees Nathaniel's will being parceled out to his surviving family members. Ruth (Frances Conroy) finds herself reaping the benefits of her late husband's insurance policy, stocks, and money; Nate (Peter Krause) and David (Michael Hall) split the family business (to David's great horror); and Claire (Lauren Ambrose) gets money for college, which she considers trading for hard cash. In the aftermath of the will's reading, Ruth breaks up with Hiram (Ed Begley Jr.), Claire sucks her boyfriend's toes in the back of a hearse, and David gets a surprise -- and not entirely welcome -- visit from his ex-fiancée.
