  • Episode Description
  • After his wife leaves him, Ben tries to get back into the dating scene while making time for Luke, who's more interested in girls than in dad's idea of fun. The culture clash is exacerbated when Seamus calls from Ireland to announce that he's visiting. While at the airport to pick his dad up, Ben meets Madeline, who recognizes him as the famous architect and gives him her card. Ben brags to his friend and partner, Alex, that a woman gave him her card. Alex and receptionist Wendy beg Ben to hurry up and call her already before she loses interest. But Ben discovers he lost her card and decides to forget it -- until Madeline calls him and asks him to dinner. Ben suddenly remembers that the date he just agreed to coincides with his taking Luke out to "The Lion King" musical. Alex and Wendy won't let Ben stand Madeline up, so Ben gets Seamus to take Luke. But Luke angrily cancelled a date of his own for his father -- and didn't want to go to "The Lion King" in the first place. At dinner, Ben asks Madeline if they could do it some other time, and is humiliated to find out the only thing she wanted out of him was to look at her portfolio. Afterwards, Ben rushes to the theatre to be with Luke, but he and Seamus scalped their tickets and went to a pub instead. Ben promises Luke that he won't force him to do anything he doesn't want to anymore, while Seamus decides not to go back to Ireland just yet.moreless
