Episode Summary

EDIT
To Volunteer Is Human
AIRED:
Carl brags about his new client, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Matty's choir has been selected to go to D.C. to sing at the nationals. They'll need $5000 to go, so the choir parents are planning a big fundraiser -- which used to be Sarah's department. Ben is eager to offer his services as volunteer, but all Matty wants him to do is write a check. At school, Ben meets the treasurer, Sharon Glazier, and chairperson, Candice, and tells them he's volunteering. He also meets Roger, one bitter parent whose wife forced him to volunteer. Ben suggests holding a silent auction, which the others think is a great idea. The committee is looking for a new chairperson, so Ben again volunteers, which they don't think is a great idea. At least not until after he offers to bake cupcakes -- like Sarah used to. Matty is invited to audition for solo, but Alex puts the fear in him that he might not be good enough. So Ben tells him the soloist always gets the girl. The committee come over to the apartment for a meeting, and Ben gets drunk with power and starts making all sorts of suggestions that send everybody but Sharon fleeing. Matty comes home bragging that he got the solo -- which drives her away, too. That's when Ben learns that she's the mother of the other kid who was up for it. When word gets around, Matty suspects the choir won't be going. So Ben begs Carl to break attorney-client privilege, and introduce him to Kareem, whom he hopes to use as marquee auction damage control. Carl eventually caves, and together they go to Kareem's hotel. After they get a guy off Kareem's back, he's happy to repay the favor and do it. But a blizzard puts a damper on Ben's plans to hold the auction at Nicole's. So Ben hooks up a speakerphone, intending to hold the auction that way. Nicole and Alex don't have the heart to tell him that a snowplow cleared the road, and all the attendees hightailed it outta there. When Ben assumes the auction is a flop, Kareem volunteers the $5000 himself. And Matty lets it slip that Sarah's cupcakes were store-bought.moreless
