Episode Summary

Flirting with Disaster
Carl introduces the family to his new girlfriend, Jeanette, who's a professional cellist. Ben enjoys her company, since she's not only a musician, which he wanted to be, but an aspiring writer, as well. Alex and Nicole, who came over to watch a Bears game, pull Ben aside long enough to alert him to the fact that he's flirting with Carl's girlfriend right in front of Carl. Which isn't a first for him. Ben swears his actions are innocent, but he's shocked the next day at work when Alex tells him that Jeanette was flirting back. Ben's revelation isn't helped by Carl asking him for a favor -- look at Jeanette's book. Fearing Alex was right, Ben refuses to at first, but eventually caves. Jeanette goes to Ben's office to see what he thought of her book. While he's trying to state his opinion, she gets shamefully close to him, cracks up over something he said that wasn't a joke, spills water on her chest, and has her blouse unbuttoned. But when Ben tells her that he gave her the wrong impression at his apartment, and he wasn't flirting with her, she blows up over his suspecting that she was coming on to him in return, and starts to storm off. However, after thinking it over, she realizes that maybe she was subconsciously flirting back because she wants to end her relationship with Carl. So she goes off to do just that. After she's gone, Ben goes to Carl's apartment, assuming that Jeanette did the deed, what, since Carl looks upset, and he said that Jeanette was there. Ben's then surprised to find Jeanette still there. She didn't break up with Carl after all, and wants to keep seeing him. Meanwhile, at Carl's recommendation, Matty decides to get something nice for Paige for their monthiversary. So he buys her a ceramic frog, to remind her of the one they dissected in biology. But before he can give it to her, she presents him with her gift -- the first note he ever passed in class. Oh, and an interactive Playstation, too. In a panic, he realizes he can't give her the frog alone. So he gives her the frog and a very expensive watch Ben bought him.moreless
