Teen Mom S4 Episode 9 Recap

Teen Mom Season 4 Episode 9 
"By the Rules" 


Amber:
Amber talks to her therapist from rehab on the phone and she is already starting to stray from her plans of bettering her life. Gary drops the bomb on Amber that he is going out of town once again and leaving Leah with his mom. Amber gets really upset when he wont explain why he keeps doing it. 
Gary moves in this episode to a pretty nice house, much better than the last place. 
Gary tells Amber that Leah is at his moms house so Amber goes over to see her and they aren't there. She has a mini anxiety attack not knowing where her daughter is. 
She does finally get a hold of Gary's mom and Leah is safely dropped off. Amber isn't really happy about not having her dropped off on time though, so she tries to talk to Gary's mom about their communication. 

Catelynn:
Tyler decides to go to court and support Butch, even though it is painful for him knowing his father admitted to caring more about cocaine than his family. It ends up being a disappointment when Butch spots April in the crowd and shakes his head in disapproval. He tries to convince the judge to let him out so that he can study law and represent himself in trial.... which of course the judge denies because he wasn't born yesterday. Tyler thinks about cutting ties with his dad because he doesn't want to watch Butch kill himself. 
Meanwhile April decides to turn her life around and quit drinking for good. 

Farrah:
Farrah struggles with doing school work with Sophia running around crazy. Daniel tries to help get Sophia to sleep and ends up taking some oft he stress off of Farrah. She still is having a hard time dealing with it all and ends up asking her mom to take Sophia back to Iowa for a month so Soph can visit with family while she gets through the quarter and passes her classes. Of course her mom is delighted by the news and agrees to take Sophia for a while so Farrah can focus on school and do what she needs to do to better her future.
Farrah's mom comes to FL and they all go to dinner so that she can meet Daniel. He is very polite and nice as usual and helps out with Sophia. Debra lays some hard questions on him as mothers do. 

Maci: 
Kyle signs the papers for the new house but they aren't quite ready to move in yet. There is work to be done before they can move in all their stuff. Maci finally tells Ryan that she and Kyle bought a house, he responds well and seems happy for her. It wasn't enough for her though and she still looked kind of disappointed when she told Kyle his reaction.
Ryan talks with Dalis later about legalizing his rights to Bentley. They both know that Maci isn't going to take it well. Meanwhile Maci and Kyle get started working on the house. Maci paints the kitchen cabinets either black or dark brown, I'm not sure but it looked cute. 
Bentley is not pleased with the new house. He gets a bit upset while looking at it and refuses to choose a bedroom. Kyle shows him the yard but no dice. He will be okay though.
Maci and Kyle make the house look super cute with a fresh coat of paint and some elbow grease. They move their stuff in and everything falls into place.

    1. Then Maci needs to tell Kyle to mind his own business. His opinion is creditted more than Ryan's in Maci's mind. Maci and Ryan BOTH need to put their new bf/gf in place. Neither is a parent and neither should be making ANY decisions regarding Bentley.

    1. You've obviously never dated someone with a child...try it..its harder than you really think. Dalis handles it well.

    4. I like Dalis. She seems like a great woman. And it looks like Ryan agrees. She seems to interact well with Bentley too. Bentley seems to like her.

  4. I hate how everyone is up in arms about the conversation between Dalis and Bentley..
    1.) people always forget that Maci used to question Bentley about Ryan and if he wants to go to his house
    2.) Dalis said it in a playful way..geez
    3.) Maci and Dalis don't need to chat everytime they have Bentley exchanges. I don't get out of the car when my husband drops off his daughter with her mom...that's their exchange not mine. They don't need to be great friends, just civil. (Kyle I hate that so many people only see Maci as an angel. Either that or I am watching a completely different show.never gets out of the car either and refused to meet Ryan for months)--Double Standards!
    4.) cause Maci has never bad-mouthed Ryan in front of Bentley---she does it at least every other episode

  5. I think it's pretty obvious stuff goes on with Maci/Ryan/Kyle/Dalis that doesn't get shown on the actual show that leads to them feeling the way they all do towards eachother. I'm willing to bet they all start crap with eachother to piss eachother off but it all happens away from cameras.

    1. I definitely agree. We don't even see half the story. I like that Dalis and Ryan don't make exploit all of it on TV (i.e. Maci's excessive partying) but she has not problem exploiting his faults.

    2. like the time Maci texted ryan to say "you would have more fun on vacation with me than your gf"---well i'd be a bitch too if someone said that to my boyfriend. but not one was at her for over stepping the line there.

  6. Why are people so bent out of shape about Dalis' comment about living with Ryan? She didn't even sound serious and neither did Bentley. They were just goofing around.

  7. Dalis is a dumbass.
    As smart as Bentley is, I would be pissed to see her talking with Ryan in front of him about all that stuff.
    Seriously this girl needs to mind her business.

    1. Cause Kyle and Maci walk out of the room to talk about that kind of stuff too...NOT.

      Double Standards. People can't get mad at Dalis for the things Kyle does too.

  8. Wow Dalis needs to shut up! Who do you think you are telling Bentley to move in with Ryan? If I was Maci I'd kick her ass!!

  9. I swear to god I watch a completely different show then some of you. Apparently everyone forgot that Maci had already packed up Bentley and moved him across the state to be close to Kyle at the point that Ryan and Dalis are at. And on multiple occasions Maci has referenced Kyle being a better dad, Ryan not taking care of Bentley, Ryan not having a job, Ryan not living on his own, etc. She constantly makes a point to establish that she is a better person than Ryan is. I've yet to see Maci make a valid point as to why she is that much better of a parent than Ryan is. The only reason she's really ever consistently made is because she's "the mom".

    What Dalis said doesn't even scrape the iceberg of the things Maci has said about Ryan/Dalis in front of Bentley.Maci is very catty towards their relationship and I wouldn't doubt that her jealousy is something that may have broke her and Kyle up back in February.

    1. Well I at least watch the same show as you, but I agree that some people must watch something different to not see any of it going on.

  10. Dalis and Ryan are awesome together, maci's just a jealous bitchhhh. Ryan grew up and has a stable relationship with Dalis, she's obviously a way better gf than Maci thats why Ryan settled down and thats why Maci hates Dalis because she made the good guy in Ryan show when she couldnt. So now she's an old looking lady, alcoholic, jealous bitchh and needs to get over herself. (:

    1. I agree. It is obvious how jealous Maci. She is the one that starts drama to make them look bad.

    2. "Ryan grew up and has a stable relationship with Dalis, she's obviously a way better gf than Maci thats why Ryan settled down and thats why Maci hates Dalis because she made the good guy in Ryan show when she couldnt."

      This.

  11. did anyone else watch the online scence where Maci is mad Dalis doesn't talk to her when they pick up Bentley? Kyle doesn't talk to Ryan EITHER!!!! She thinks she is queen and she needs to get over herself. Don't expect her to talk to you when your bf doesn't talk to baby daddy either.

  12. Was I the only one bothered by Debra scolding Sophia for having an accident in her pants and Farrah just laughing about it? That's literally the first thing you're told NOT to do when potty training. Also, where are they actually from? Sometimes they say Iowa, sometimes Omaha (Nebraska).

    1. There is a city called Onawa,Iowa which the larger city right next to Council Bluffs, which is where she is from.

    2. I was annoyed by that, too. I can't even believe them sometimes.

    3. Farrah is from Council Bluffs, Iowa but Onaha is right across the river. Less then a 10 minute drive. Most of the places she went to were in Omaha I live outside of Omaha and recongize the places.

  13. I don't care to bash any of the moms. I just want to say Bentley is the freakin CUTEST little guy. Every time he talks, I laugh, he's so adorable.

  14. Honestly when amber was talking about communication I was just thinking to myself 'maybe if you didn't call Gary a fatass all the time y'all would have better communication'
    I'm not a fan of amber because she hasn't seemed to try to better herself at all every chance she's had she's messed up. I also don't know why everyone rags on Gary yeah he's kinda childish on social media but that doesn't mean he's a bad dad I think he's amazing for stepping up and taking Leah during all Ambers stuff

  15. I think Maci fans are looking for any reason to dislike Dalis she has a right to opinion. What she said was not that bad and Dalis know about this situation. Because she comes from a divorced family all she is doing is letting Ryan know what his Rights are. Dalis mother move her and her brother to California away from their father in tennessee so she know from experience. That the mother has alot more rights unless the father goes to court a get agreement. Right now if Maci wanted too she could move to floridia with Bentley and there is nothing Ryan could about it because there is no agreement. Settle in stone which is what Ryan's mother and Dalis are trying to let him know Dalis was not serious with Bentley.She was playing and Maci fans just wants to run it. Maci is forever letting Kyle in her business with Bentley Kyle has more rights to Bentley than Ryan does because he with Maci. Maci is always questions Bentley about who takes care of at Ryan's house so the moment Ryan or his girlfriend does it is some how moral wrong. I don't blame Dalis for not getting out the car to talk to Maci why should she is not about Dalis. It is about Bentley and last time I check Kyle never get out the car to said anything to Ryan. Maci just wants something to bitch about if Dalis did said hi to her every time I bet you Maci would call her fake. Maci is really annoying it's Maci world and everyone is just character in or just lucky enough to be allow in her world. Maci was upset that Ryan was not hurt by her moving in with Kyle and getting house you can tell. she wanted Ryan to be upset but he was truly happy for her and I agree with the person that said that Maci is jealous of Dalis. Because made Ryan the good guy that he is today and that Dalis was the one girl that changed Ryan and Maci always thought she could do it. I really like Dalis she is good girl and smart and I'm glad that Ryan has someone that cared about him.

    1. These are my thoughts exactly...i used to be total team Maci but now i can't stand her.Dalis means well and knows her place and handles it well. I think she is awesome for Bentley and Ryan.

  16. I agree with the earlier comment about Farrah's mom scolding Sophia. Potty training is supposed to be pleasant for the child and making comments like that can be very harmful to the process and their esteem.

  17. Unless you've been in the gf's position, no one knows how it feels to constantly be compared to "mom".. I'm raising my husbands children from his first marriage, and it is a daily struggle knowing that they would rather it be their mother thats still married to their dad. I never once got out of the car to chit-chat with their mom. I didn't need to, I knew what a shit bag, she really was. Eventually her partying and boyfriend resulted in the kids being removed from her home.. So unless you e been in Dalis's spot; don't judge. From what I've seen Maci doesn't seem all that stable either

    1. Agreed. I dated a guy for many many years and never got out of the car to exchange his daughter at her mom's house unless it was every once in a while where I dropped off/picked up. It is so much harder to be the "step mom" and deal with the drama/problems that go with it than people realize not to mention imagine your bf talking to his ex everyday (which you have to do when they have a kid) It is so much harder than you think...I feel for Dalis cause I understand and think she does a great job!!!Kyle doesn't get out of the car either so Maci needs to stop bitching to her friends about Dalis not doing it.
