More than anything, Nicholas wants a place from which to operate his foundation and to hang out with his family. So he is overjoyed when he comes home and sees Anthony and John standing in his basement, promising to convert the unfinished dark space into the bright new headquarters of Cancer Stinks and new family hang out center.
