Episode Summary

EDIT
All Better Now
AIRED:

The boys are stuck. Ted's stuck in a career he no longer wants. Michael's stuck with the prospect of returning to his dead-end career at the Big Q. Emmett's decided he's stuck with an ass that needs surgical enhancement. Justin's stuck in the worst situation of all. Since the attack, he has nightmares about Chris Hobbs, and he recoils from physical contact.

Jennifer is having trouble not only reaching, but even touching her son. Deb hints that Brian may be best suited to the job, but Jennifer refuses. When Justin throws a violent tantrum at home after Brian won't see him, Jennifer asks Brian to do whatever it takes to reach him. Seeking advice from a former trick (also a psychiatrist), Brian is told that Justin must relive the experience in order to process it and move on. But, Brian's best efforts to recreate the fateful prom night for Justin are ineffectual.

Another day at the office means another day for Ted to surf cumquik.com. It's his last day, after Mr. Wertshafter catches him. Even Mr. Wertshafter knows he's doing Ted a favour – 'cause if you're not passionate about your work, "you're just jerking yourself off."

Emmett needs money for his new buns, and Michael's willing to try anything before going back to the Q. Thus, the adventurous housemates spend a night as naked waiters. Emmett adores getting his ass pinched black and blue—Michael's just blue. It's not for him. So he takes his old job back at the Big Q—his new boss being his old nemesis who has it out for him.

Lindsay's decided to be practical. She can't entertain notions of a wedding with Melanie when she wants to throw a memorable party for Gus' first birthday. Memorable indeed. When Gus innocently starts to play with his new bat, Justin's memory is finally triggered—Chris Hobbs swinging the bat, Brian calling to warn him—and he relives the experience in vivid detail.
