Edina finds out that both Marshall and Justin have cut off their alimony payments, thereby leaving her "poor". Dreading lest she be forced to do community service in "urine-stinking old people's homes for the incontinent," she reluctantly agrees to economize. However, a trip with Patsy to the supermarket is more than they bargained for; on the way there, they assault a driver who dares to honk at them, and when they get to the supermarket, they fill three trolleys with groceries and steal a case of champagne. Edina's "smaller" Alfa Romeo car gets clamped outside of Harvey Nichols, and they are later arrested for drunk driving and many other charges. On the day of the trial, Edina tries to justify her actions, but it is all for naught; in addition to a huge fine, she and Patsy are sentenced to community service. Their assignment is to install loft insulation into a senior citizens' home.
