Episode Summary

Ben becomes awestruck after a manuscript falls into his lap about a fearless Masai Princess called Wahunthra. At Nicole's, he and Alex meet with its beautiful, unpublished author, Toni, and her much more talkative, plus-sized agent, Joyce. Ben's fascination turns to disappointment, as he had felt a strong connection with Toni through her writing, only to see she's nowhere near as communicative in person. But the dinner isn't a total wash, since there's chemistry between him and Joyce. They'll be having a lot of time to get to know each other better, since she visits the Home Court Press to say she's giving them the book rights. When she gets defensive after Ben says that he wants to meet with Toni again to discuss making edits, he realizes that "Joyce" lied to him - she is Toni. After he calls her on it, she admits she hired someone to play her, because she felt she didn't embody the beauty that is Wahunthra. He quickly wins her over by telling her that she does. But later on in private, he steals a kiss, only to have her rush off in a hurry. After unsuccessfully seeking advice from James, Ben finds out Toni pulled the book. Carl tells him that she's probably insecure about her weight, and may feel he's leading her on. So Ben sets up his own lie, tricking her into meeting him at Nicole's. He apologizes for his unprofessionalism, but she tells him it has nothing to do with that; he is just too far out of her league. He promises her that she isn't, and convinces her to give him a shot. Meanwhile, James takes Matty to cash in a bond he bought for him on his 2nd birthday. Since he's been studying stocks, Matty plans to invest the dough in the stock market. After he makes $50 investing in athletic shoes, Matty's success goes straight to his head, and in his quest for mo' money, he intends to sink the rest of the bond into candy eyeballs. Feeling it's a bad idea, Ben tries his hardest to talk Matty out of it.moreless
