Episode Summary

Sofa, So Good
Ben goes to a ritzy furniture store with Alex and Matty to buy a new lamp for Matty, and Ben becomes smitten with the saleslady there, Cheri. After Alex pushes him to ask her out and Matty wanders off, Ben tells Cheri that he's interested in buying a new sofa. It becomes clear that she's interested in him, too, when she offers him her 30% employee discount on an expensive, leather couch he likes. Matty is upset when Ben refuses to let him have a minibike, because they're dangerous, even though Weitzman's parents bought one for his brother, and are now giving it away. Nicole is crushed when she learns that Alex is going to marry his new, 21-year-old girlfriend, Courtney -- but she gets over it quick once Ben tells her that his date is handing out 30% discounts at a store which Nicole loves. So, when Ben and Nicole have their first date at Nicole's, Nicole sucks up by giving them 30% off the meal. It's a disaster, as Ben quickly realizes that Cheri has more balls than he does, and she never shuts up. She also has a complex about men, which proves quite the bitch after he recommends they not see each other anymore. Ben and Matty have an argument when Matty brings home the minibike anyway, without consulting him first. So Matty throws it up to Ben that he brought home the sofa without consulting him first. When the two patch things up later, Matty promises to bring the miniback back to the Weitzmans, but Ben refuses to do likewise and bring the sofa back to the store. Alex is furious when Ben announces that he broke up with Cheri (who's sending him threatening letters), and a sneaky Nicole tries to get him to mend ways with her. After Matty refuses to sit on the new sofa, Matty tearfully reminds him that he gave away mom's couch like it was nothing. Since Ben sold Sarah's sofa to Cheri's store, he's in a bit of bind when he tries to get it back from her. After she chews him out for dumping her, she regretfully tells him that someone else came in and bought it. Luckily for them both, that someone was James.moreless
