When Adam & Skip confront Randall about Kathy's unfinished kitchen, he tries to go for the door. When Skip tells him that he'd be going to court if he leaves, he changes his mind.

I came here on false pretenses.This is not fair.I'm done here.

- You can't defend yourself.- Have my client call me.

- Thank you, bye.- Listen, if you've gotnothing to hide,

then why not turn aroundand do the right thing?

This is bull--.

Guess we'll see youin court, then.

This job fell apartbecause of what?

Why do you thinkshe was upset?

Uh, I couldn't get it doneon the time that shewanted me to.

She was very agitated with me.

We're talking aboutover a year later

and Cathy's still got a kitchen she can't use.

- That's a long time.- Well, I couldn't getover there, okay?

I kept calling her.

I just didn't blow her offand leave town.

Right, so you're just gonnastring her out for eight months?

I'm not stringing her on,that's just what happened.

She never said,"Give me my deposit back,I'm done.

I'm gonna getsomebody else."


You -- liar.Give my aunt back her money.

Bull--, Randy.I don't think you wereever going back.

Look at her kitchen.It's still a kitchenshe can't use.

Randy, it don't take"The Hardy Boys" to figurethis one out.

You got your payment,you went home,

it's been over a year,you were never coming back.

You got maybe 30%of this work done,

and what you did dois all crap.

So how about giving backsome of her money?

She gave me a deposit.That's it.

She could've said,"Give me my money back,"but she didn't.

Who gives you the permission to say what kind of money

I'm supposed to give backand what work I perform?

You did the electrical work,you put the receptaclein the island.

That's not code-compliant.

You're talkingabout something that'snot a complete job yet.

You put can lights upin the ceiling--

not high-efficiency can lights.

Like I said,it's not completed.

Nothing is code-compliant,nothing is legal,

none of itwould've passed inspection,

so, really,the work that you did here,

it's all gotta beripped out.

And you chargedher money for it.

What do you want me to do?

You got three options--one, you come back with us,

you do the job,and you do it correctlyunder our supervision.

Two, you can justgive the money back.

Or, three, Cathy'sgonna see you in court.

I am willing to go backand finish the job. I haveno problem with that.

- Adam: Okay.- Skip: So you'll come back and do it?

- Absolutely.- All right.

Well, perfect.

- All right, he did it.- Finally.
