FROM THIS EPISODE

Josh's mother and younger brother were a mess. His mother drank too much, his brother got arrested a lot, and they'd somehow ended up living in a retirement community in South Florida, even though the brother was 23. His mother would ride drunk on the shuttle at noon, and his brother would argue with his pill-popping girlfriend at midnight. Josh hadn't lived with them since he was nine, and they didn't play much of a role in his daily life--until they took over his life.
