'Rescue Me': Black Shawn Asks For Tommy's Blessing to Marry His Daughter (VIDEO)

Tommy tried to reassert his authority in the household on this week's 'Rescue Me' (Wed., 10PM ET on FX), but we're talking about a house in which he is outnumbered four to one now that Sheila is basically there all the time.
Add to that the fact that the women have synchronized their cycles, it was no wonder that Tommy found himself in the feminine hygiene aisle. But this chain of events led to him running into Kelly (Maura Tierney), who chose to bring her real life struggle with breast cancer onto the show.
That encounter turned out to be perhaps the only bright spot for Tommy in the episode, as he also had his authority, such as it is, challenged by Black Shawn. After freaking out and getting drunk after Bart asked her to marry him last week, Colleen returned the favor by asking him to marry her.
So Bart decided to do the honorable thing and ask for Tommy's blessing on their union, though it turns out he really didn't care what Tommy thought. Or maybe he was giving Tommy a chance to step up and treat him with a little respect. Instead, Tommy opted for some childish poking and told him, "No."
So Bart called Colleen then and there and told her "Yes," while Tommy's jaw dropped. "I respect you. Now it's time for you to respect me," Bart said. "Okay, Dad?"
