Wanting to play the sympathy card, David hauls himself out of bed and tells Carol he'll go and stay with friends. He's upset when his plan backfires and she tells him that sounds like a good idea!

He tries to butter up the grandchildren in a bid to get Carol to invite him to stay, but although Tiffany and Morgan are taken in, Liam and Whitney aren't interested in him at all.

However when he gets ready to go, he tells Liam he's doing a better job looking after the family than David ever could, and Carol overhears.
