Rent Day is the 21st episode of Season 2 of Fresh Off the Boat. It is the 34th episode overall.

Synopsis

Jessica wants to sell a house to a married couple, but then finds out an unappealing trait about the two of them. Eddie wants to get an Iron Man watch and Louis tests his attendance by giving him his watch.

Plot

In the main plot, Jessica decides to rent a house to two "law school students", who are a husband and wife pair (Jordan and Raquel). Excited by how much rent Jessica expects the pair to pay, Honey starts buying luxuries in advance of the paychecks. However, Jessica realizes that the paychecks aren't coming because the husband and wife pair are destitute, and incredibly stupid and lazy slackers who have no interest in attending law school, or getting jobs. She tries to force the squatters to get jobs already to make the money while keeping it a secret from Honey that the paychecks aren't coming. When Jessica threatens to get the cops to make them leave, Raquel twists Jessica's words by referencing the bar exam study guide which Jessica herself gave to Raquel and Raquel threatens to have Jessica arrested because since she rented the house to them in the first place, she can't legally undo this. Jessica then asks Officer Bryson for help, but Bryson answers that he isn't legally allowed to kick out Jordan and Raquel because of their rights and politely dismisses Jessica.

As a consequence, Jessica decides to sell off the house to get rid of the squatters and divides up the settlement payment into 3 checks, so that both Jenny and Honey get one, but not before begging them to consider allowing her to keep all 3 checks.

In the subplot, Eddie wants an Iron Man watch, so Louis tests his ability to keep his watch and not lose it. However, Eddie quickly loses it but then Louis claims that he took it away (thinking Eddie was negligent when he wasn't) and then Louis in turn loses his watch, asking Evan and Emery to go find it.

Trivia

  • This episode proves that Jessica isn't very smart or compatible for her job as a realtor, as she rented a house to 2 law school drop-outs without checking that they are in huge debt and have a terrible credit rating.
