It's the summer holidays but the teens must work in a homeless shelter downtown, and as they never lift a finger at home working hard is a big shock. Though, it is illegal for teens to smoke in Alabama it doesn't stop Naomi asking one of the homeless men for a cigarette. She endures the wrath of Mark when she gets home, while Ross is in trouble for leaving the shelter without permission.
