Marlene returns with her to kids from previous marriages who are apparently in their late teens at Thanksgiving, uninvited. At the same time, Frankie's dental boss, Dr. Ted Goodwin, was there not actually invited. Marlene kept coming on to him and liked the fact that he was a dentist. Brick stated that he thought she was Uncle Rusty's wife. She said they got a divorce and that him not communicating with anyone was one of their big problems, that and her sleeping with his best friend, but that was in the top 3.
During the family's football game, she and her kids, and Dr, Goodwin were on the same team. She tackled Dr. Goodwin even though they were on the same team to the ground. But this was just to try and get intimate with Dr. Goodwin. Dr. Goodwin became very scared of her.
