|“||We're planning a trip. Just to a cabin, overnight. And we request that the two of you not try to contact us for the next 24 hours.||”|

"The Cabin" is the fifth episode in the first season of Schitt's Creek. It is the fifth episode overall.
An incident shows the Roses how their small living quarters are negatively affecting their "private" lives. On a request by Johnny to Roland to fix the door in order to give him and Moira more privacy, Roland's answer is to offer Johnny and Moira his cabin so that they can do what men and women do, without fear of David or Alexis seeing or hearing. Despite the fear of what the Schitts' cabin would be like, Johnny and Moira accept his offer. Fortunately, Johnny and Moira are surprised by the Schitts' cabin in more ways than one. With their parents gone for the night, Alexis and David decide to have a motel room party, deciding to have a game night theme. Because of David's exacting standards, he needs the party to have exactly six people, with Stevie, Mutt and Twyla being three of the obvious invitees, leaving one spot left open, that sixth who he has no idea who it could be. Alexis may have different thoughts as to the nature of the party than David.
