Stef’s dad tries to give them a new car as a gift but Stef does not accept it because he did not attend her wedding.Family day finally arrives and the whole gang including Brandon come to see Callie. Jude is still upset with Callie about everything that happened. All of the girls debate whether Brandon or Jesus is hotter. Jesus is skipping lunch because of his wrestling class. Jude tells Callie he is going to be adopted with or without her. Rita questions Stef and Lena about bringing Brandon, and then tells them that Callie applied for the independent living program. They seem crushed. Brandon confronts Callie about the text messages and she realizes Cole didn’t throw the phone away.
Callie catches Cole using drugs of some sort and confronts him about texting Brandon. The drugs he has been using are hormones. We learn a little bit of Cole’s history, which is actually quite sad. His parents kicked him out when they found out he wanted to be a boy. Cole apologizes to Callie for texting Brandon as he was "doing it for her own good".Brandon sneaks away to Daphne’s apartment to see Callie. The girls let her have 15 minutes alone with him. He sings her a cute little love song.
Cole is being taken to the hospital when the girls arrive home from the apartment. He had a seizure which is a side effect of the hormones and hit his head on the sink which caused him to be unconscious. All of the girls blame Callie because she was supposed to be his accountability partner since they are room mates. They all get upset at her for not truly being in the program. They tell her if she isn’t taking it seriously to go home to her family who cares for her. After a conversation with Rita and Cole, Callie turns her phone in. Lena finds out her levels are good to get her pregnant. Stef finds her dad dead at his house when she goes to talk to him.
The title is reference to it being family day in Callie's group home.
