Episode Summary

A hot tennis instructor gets between Ellie and Jules, while Laurie turns to Travis for advice, and Andy and Grayson try to cheer up Bobby after a fresh heartbreak over Jules.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Ellie and Jules are feuding because of Jules constant need for attention. Bobby is in the depths of depression. Grayson and Andy try to help him. In the end Andy talks him down. Laurie goes to Travis for advice and help with her love life.moreless

    A pretty standard filler type episode with some very funny moments. I especially loved the guys night out with the police and the tasers, etc.. A few laugh out loud moments in there.

    The rest of the episode was a little bit of a downer. Ellie and Jules fighting, Laurie needing Travis to pull her out of a romantic hell hole with her ex-boyfriend, and Bobby's constant binging. All very uplifting and humorous, not! The call Andy forgot to take off the machine was funny. The tennis game with Ellie and Jules with all the grunting and groaning was slightly humorous. Some of the one liners were funny as well.

    Overall, not one of the better efforts. A little too much negativity and not enough of the positive energy which usually drives this show. Maybe this is just a lull in the action? Thanks for reading...moreless

    • Laurie: (hiding in Dale's closet) Hey, are you hungry?
      Travis: Oh yeah, I'll take a grilled cheese. What the hell are you talking about?
      Laurie: I end up in here so much I stashed some granola bars just in case. (takes some granola bars out of a shoe)Yeah one time I hid in here to catch Dale cheating, another time because I was cheating with his cousin.
      Travis: I bet that dude got nun-chukaed.
      Laurie: They had to rebuild his nose with part of his elbow, I didn't even know they could do that. But honestly, it looked better.

    • Ellie: (Drinking coffee) Oh. Yes. Oh, God.
      Travis: Good coffee, Mrs. Torres?
      Jules: No, she's mocking me. See, yesterday when I was making those noises-
      Travis: I'm out! (Walks away)
      Jules: I'm allowed to make fake sexual noises, Travis! That's a really weird thing to take a stand on.

    • Jules: Ellie, am I going to be alone forever?
      Ellie: How are we back here again?
      Jules: I can get to this place from anywhere. Say a word.
      Ellie: Eggplant.
      Jules: Eggplants are vegetables, my uncle's a vegetable because he got hit by a truck. Truck carry beer, beers come in forties, I'm forty and alone and what am I doing with my life, Ellie?
      Ellie: Wow.

    • Grayson: I just wish I could jump in a time machine and go back and undo... well, you.
      Laurie: I would also use it to tell my cousin not to give her baby up for adoption. We're pretty sure she's Dakota Fanning now.
      Grayson: Yeah, she's not adopted.

    • Grayson: Why don't you just buy a few cases of beer?
      Bobby: Cause then there wouldn't be any sexy keg-pumping man. (Mimes pumping a keg) Hey baby!
      Andy: (In a girly voice) You're really good at that!
      Bobby: You want me to keep pumping?
      Andy: Never stop pumping!
      Grayson: A whole new level of disturbing.

    • Grayson: By the way, what can you tell me about this? (Lifts up his shirt and "Seacrest out" is written on his stomach)
      Andy: You may wanna get used to that. It's permanent marker.

    • Grayson: Remember when you were in your twenties and you could drink all night and still feel good enough in the morning to write a letter to your girlfriend? (Bobby and Andy stare at him) I was a different person in college.

    • Jules: Laurie, can you help us decide who has dibs on a guy?
      Laurie: That depends, which one of you is pregnant?
      Jules: Neither.
      Laurie: Then I got nothing.

    • Andy: Sorry man, but I gotta bounce.
      Bobby: No, you can't leave yet! You gotta start living like you have a mustache.
      Grayson: See, that's just gibberish!
      Andy: No, it's not. I often find myself asking the ultimate question: what would Burt Reynolds do?
