Episode Summary

Eight and a Half Months
It's Halloween, and Ben dresses up like one of the Pips in preparation for a big party he's throwing. A big party to which Alex happened to invite Maya Angelou, who's in town for a book-signing gig. Matty and his new hockey teammates -- who are all two years his senior -- go out to their own party, dressed as a hockey fight. Carl the pirate hits on all the uninterested women at Ben's party, while Nicole the genie fights off the advances of all the men interested in her. Alex and Angela are there, too, as Count Dracula and Xena the Warrior Princess, respectively. Ben never does get to see Maya Angelou (nor do we), but he does get to meet the lovely Kyra Lewis, who's dressed up like a pregnant Madonna. Ben falls head over heels, but his stomach turns flips and somersaults when Kyra goes to the publishing company in normal attire, and he sees the pregnancy thing was no costume. When the soon-to-be-single-mother realizes he didn't know she was eight and a half months along, she apologizes and plans to leave his life, but he asks her out anyway. Ben worries that Matty is crusing for a bruising being the only 12-year-old on a 14-year-old's hockey team, especially after his teammate, Hartek, roughhouses him and he starts looking worn-down. So he buys Matty a bunch of extra padding to make sure he can't get hurt. Or move. After she gets Ben to take her to a club, Kyra isn't too pregnant to shake her booty. Or too pregnant for the two of them to share a romantic kiss. But she is too pregnant to stop her water from breaking right on the dance floor. Ben rushes her to the emergency room, and bumps into Carl, who, coincidentally, had to take Matty in after he hurt his leg in practice. Ben makes Carl keep Kyra company while he checks on his son. Matty tells Ben that he wants to go back to his old team with his same-age teammates, and is relieved when Ben tells him that he's not a disappointment to him. Kyra has a baby boy, and Ben makes sure she knows that he's there for her if ever she needs anything.moreless
