Synopsis


Enrique encourages his daughter, Inez, to ask Hank to speak at her Quinceanera and Hank reluctantly agrees to her request. He starts spending time with Inez so he has something to write about in his speech. Hank begs Peggy to accompany him on his first visit, so Peggy meets Hank at Enrique's with a real-estate client waiting in the car, a 30-year-old hipster who hasn't been satisfied with any of the homes he's been shown. The hipster becomes enchanted with Enrique's Mexican neighborhood, and Peggy closes a deal with him. But when a slew of hipsters follow and buy up homes in the neighborhood, the fruit stands and Goodwill clothing stores are soon replaced by trendy salons and art galleries. At the Quinceanera, Enrique publicly blames Peggy for the gentrification of his neighborhood and explains that the rent on his home has skyrocketed such that they will have to move. Feeling horrible, Peggy tricks the hipsters into believing that the simpler, down-home folks of Arlen (like Dale and Boomhauer) are moving into the neighborhood and the hipsters soon move out. Enrique's neighborhood is restored to its former glory and Enrique is able to buy his home.
