In the Season 5 finale, everyone in the Lopez family faces a crisis. Ernie tells George that the factory is moving to Mexico, and they'll both be unemployed. When the police want to question Benny about her part in an old robbery, she flees.


Everything hangs in the balance for the entire Lopez family: Ernie tells George that the factory is moving to Mexico and they'll both be out of jobs; after Benny reunites with her ex, Ernie tells George that Benny's ex robbed a convenience store and calls the cops, though it is for a past crime Benny committed; Angie has been feeling sick for a few days and awaits the results of a home pregnancy test; Carmen is afraid to open her final college letter after being rejected by Northwestern, Iowa and Columbia; Max has swiped a forbidden beer and is about to sample his first alcohol; and Vic prepares to propose marriage to a 27-year-old woman he barely knows.
