Episode Summary

Three's Not Company
The Stevensons are visited by Ben's long-time friend, Michael -- who lost a race to him many years ago -- and his young daughter, Pauley. When Matty is reunited with Pauley, he sees how nicely she's developed, and develops a crush on her. They're spending the weekend in Chicago, because one of the country's top ad agencies wants to steal Michael away from his current advertising gig in New York. Ben notices Matty's crush when Michael and Pauley sleep over at their place, and recommends how to make the first move. Michael, who hasn't lost his competitive spirit, challenges Ben to a jog, which wears them both out. Realizing they're too old for competitions, Ben tries to tell his buddy that not everything has to be a contest, to no avail. Weitzman throws a wrench into Matty's designs when he says that he really likes Pauley, and wants him to tell her so. Matty turns to Ben for advice, and Ben says that he's going to have to decide for himself whether Weitzman's friendship means more to him than Pauley's body. Especially since he already promised Weitzman he would tell her. When Matty hints at his friend's feelings, Pauley says that dating Weitzman would be weird... like dating her own brother. She then crushes Matty's dreams, by blurting out that it'd also be like dating him. Ben questions his relationship with Michael to James, who hints that maybe they should drift apart. Carl informs them both that Michael didn't get the job. Ben consoles Matty about his unrequited love, and Matty fills him in about how Michael's been unemployed for six months. Michael lies to Ben, claiming he got the job, but turned them down because their final offer was insulting. Ben doesn't call him on the lie, letting Matty know that he didn't for the sake of their friendship. So Matty does likewise with Weitzman, and tells him that he told Pauley, and she likes him, too, but, unfortunately, she and her father are going back home. Ben does good by giving Michael the number of another New York ad agency.moreless
