The Settlement is the thirtieth episode of Melissa & Joey and the finale of season 1.


Joe finds himself coming into some money owed him by his previous employer, which allows him to pursue other interests, so he quit his "manny" job. With Joey moving out and no longer her employee, Mel and Joe realize they may have more than friendly feelings for each other. And, the leaky ceiling in Mel's house proves to be a larger problem than Joe anticipated, leading to some very unexpected destruction.
