Eliott asks his father for help
Upon awakening, Greg discovers the apartment’s kitchen totally flooded. The kitchen sink leaks, forcing Eliott to shut off the water to avoid further damage. Being unable to do the repairs themselves, Jasmine suggests calling a plumber, but all the workers are in high demand this holiday season and none are available until January 4th.
Jasmine then suggests that Eliott ask her father, who is a plumber, to come and help them out urgently. At first reluctant because they have just found each other, Eliott ends up accepting because they cannot go several days without running water with a baby in the roommate.
Her father is delighted to be able to help them and finds the root of the problem in no time. Impressed by the family formed by Eliott, Greg and Jasmine who are active around Naël, he congratulates them in an awkward way by telling them that they almost look like a real family. With these words, Eliott gets carried away and is dry towards him, asking him if for him a real family means a father and a mother who put their child out on Christmas Eve.
Crestfallen, his father finds him a little later to apologize. In fact, he confides being very impressed by him, to see him take care of a baby of which he is not the father with so much implication, but not having been able to find the right words at the time. Eliott is touched to see the efforts made by his father.
