Season One


In the Pilot, Goldie is first shown in a car with her daughter Shania and her grandmother Jane, who talks badly about a lesbian couple walking down the street. She then walks into her house where she discovers her husband in bed with another girl and tells him that it's over. When she tells her grandmother about it Jane walks inside and Goldie asks Shania, if she ever wanted to go anywhere else and her daughter answers with "Hawaii". So she steals the car and just drives away. They end up in California, where she tells her daughter about her dream about becoming a lawyer, but she doesn't have any money, so she decides to become a surrogate - she asks for a gay couple, because of what her grandmother said. She meets with Bryan and David and is immediately ready to do the operation. When David has troubles with the thoughts of becoming a dad she tells him that he's gonna be a great one. After the operation she receives a lawyer-suit from Bryan and David. The episode ends with Goldie looking at the pregnancy test's results.
