Ed thought that Chase is a deadbeat dad. Ed and Johnna have both bared witness to Chase verbally and physically abusing his girlfriend, Sydney.

Looks like Chase needs to step his lying game up.

Dr. Phil: Chase Gets Defensive, Then Gets Help
Chase was getting frustrated that everyone was ganging up on him, but Dr. Phil told him that he was not ganging up on him, but ganging up with him. Whether Chase found it easy to believe or not, he couldn’t be proud where he is at at 23 years of age (he wasn’t).
Dr. Phil didn’t think Chase was a bad guy, but he thought he had serious maturity problems. While Ed was to be left out as a voice of reason for now, Dr. Phil thought that Chase’s girlfriend and mother should be involved in the maturing process, and he agreed.
