    • Everybody Doesn't Love Eamon (a.k.a. Slapshot)
      At Molly's, Eamon runs into an old rival of his, Stupak, who has mocked him ever since he screwed up royally on the hockey field. Allison attempts to patch things up between them, but only manages to exacerbate the situation after Stupak tricks her into wishing Eamon a happy April 17th -- the day he screwed up royally on the hockey field. When Eamon soon begins having Stupak hallucinations, Allison suggests seeing a therapist to get over him. But Eamon has something else in mind -- hunting down Stupak at his job and beating the crap out of him. Meanwhile, after Effie reads an article about Nicholas in Business Week that barely mentions her existence, she decides to go back to college to prove her worth -- and maybe tick off Nicholas in the process. So Effie enrolls in feminist theory classes, and invites her man-hating classmates over for a study session.moreless
    • Guess Who's Paying for Dinner?
      When Allison tells Eamon that the reason her father doesn't like him is because Nicholas is the alpha dog and Eamon is the new dog invading the alpha dog's space, Eamon decides to invite Nicholas and Effie out to dinner hoping they'll see what it's like on the new dog's turf -- which promises to be a real dog for all. Nicholas and Effie are none too thrilled that their transportation for the evening will be the subway, nor that Eamon is taking them out to a Chinese restaurant. The restaurant's owner, Mr. Chiu, knows Nicholas as the guy who owns the building he lives in -- where his rent was just jacked up -- and punishes Mr. Conklin by serving him some mystery meat. And Effie develops a reaction to the food that causes her face to puff up like a blowfish. Meanwhile, Finn begins dating Gloria, a woman he met at Molly's, but Eamon doesn't like her or her nervous laugh that causes her to punctuate every sentence with a chuckle, and especially doesn't like when Finn takes it upon himself to bring her along to the dinner uninvited.moreless

      Diagnosis: Effie
      Episode 11
      A new couple, Emma and Hugh Lanston, move into the building. Nicholas doesn't want to know them, but Effie forces him to. It turns out they're English, whom Effie is so infatuated with that she invites them for dinner. Although all the Lanstons do at dinner is argue, Effie -- who's started talking like an Englishman herself -- wants to be friends. Until she drops by their apartment and hears them having a violent fight, after which Emma mysteriously disappears. Making like Mark Sloan, Effie puts on her detective's hat, and sets about to crack the case of the missing British housewife. With the investigation barely afoot, Emma reappears with a big trunk -- and now Hugh is gone. Effie confronts Emma in hopes of getting a confession out of her, but Emma breaks down in tears, saying that she's going back to England because Hugh left her. Her story doesn't quite hold up when the apartment's new resident tells everybody that the only part of Hugh that left Emma is his head -- which now resides in her fridge. And Nicholas fears his life after Effie shares with him, in clinical detail, all the various ways to dispose of a body so the police won't find it. Is it all just Nicholas' worst nightmare?moreless
    • Puff the Magic Sister
      Finn delivers news that a mysterious young man has been breaking into all the apartments and stealing chachkas. Though all signs point to it, Nicholas and Effie don't think for a minute that it might be Nicky -- until Kiki Farrington visits to spell it out for them. When Nicholas and Effie talk to Nicky about Kiki's visit, Nicky can only mention her "perfect" son, Larry, whom he claims is deranged. Nicholas and Effie take a more active approach to parenting, and set out to find whether or not their son is the culprit. Meanwhile, Allison is hurt when Eamon doesn't want her hanging out with him and his friends at his favorite pub, Molly's, as he feels she won't have fun. After a talk with Puff, who convinces her that any relationship that's gone this long without such an introduction is doomed, Allison decides the time has come to meet his friends. But even with Puff along for the ride, Allison finds herself out of her element, much like Eamon warned her she'd be.moreless

Eamon shocks Allison when he tells the class that he dropped out of high school to pursue his chance at hockey. While attempting to study for his GED as a present to Allison, so she'll stop being ashamed of him, Eamon fears it's no use, as he'll never be smart and she'll always think he's too stupid for her.

Fielding's studies conclude that the bulk of the stress is being caused by a combination of Eamon and Nicky.
