Randy shows Gerald Earl's list to prove that Earl is no longer a bad guy and has turned his life around. But when Joy after explaining her own bad deeds and her 'good' personality without use of a list or anything else to make up for that, mouths off and being nasty to the boy, even calls him "God's Middle Finger", the boy shuts down again.

Though Donna watched it without Carter since he couldn't be there because of the rodent problem at a water park, it works; the boy agrees to help Earl.
