Synopsis


Jules wants Grayson to tell her she's attractive, Andy wants Ellie to have sex with him and Bobby wants Travis to eat a really old Cheeto.

Jules is upset when she lets it slip that she thinks Grayson is attractive and he won't return the compliment. She offers to make it easy on him. If he turns on his porch light at 10 o'clock that night, that'll be a sign that he thinks she's cute without actually saying it. With that, Grayson removes the light bulb entirely.

Things go from bad to worse when a hot jogger catches Jules' eye. She yells, "Hey, sweet cheeks, come to momma!" Jules is horrified when "sweet cheeks" turns out to be Grayson. She hates it that he thinks he's God's gift to women and that he left his wife to sleep with younger girls. Jules wonders about Grayson's ex, Vivian. And when we say "wonders," we mean she wants to check up on her. So she recruits Laurie for a little stakeout.

Jules and Laurie learn that Vivian is not pining away for Grayson. She's happily engaged and pregnant. Jules can't wait to rub this in Grayson's face. But as it turns out, Grayson didn't abandon Vivian. She left him. He wanted to have children and she claimed that the kid thing was not for her. So when Jules blurts out that Vivian is preggers, it's a crushing blow to Grayson.

As Bobby slowly moves the rest of his stuff out of Jules' house, he finds their old sex tape. Jules confiscates it so he doesn't show it to his friends. Of course, Jules then shows it to Laurie and Ellie. Seeing Jules' smokin' hot 19-year-old body has Ellie feeling a little self-conscious about how she looks now.

Andy gets two free sex cards per month. They're little index cards with the word "sex" written on them. If Andy opts to cash one in, Ellie can't deny his request unless it's her birthday. But Ellie is still feeling less-than-sexy so she says, "Your cards are no longer honored at this establishment." Ellie feels better when she gets a backhanded compliment from Laurie regarding her looks. She gives Andy a new sex card. It's the gift that keeps on giving, if you happen to videotape it like Andy does.

Bobby finds a 15-year-old Cheeto he saved because it looks exactly like Bruce Willis, which means he got it right around the time Bruno did Die Hard: With a Vengeance and the lesser-seen, yet equally intriguing, 12 Monkeys. He dares Travis to eat the Cheeto, just like his dad used to dare him to eat old food.

Unfortunately, eating fossilized snacks isn't for Travis. Bobby is bummed that he and Travis don't have a "thing" they share, so he ends up eating the Cheeto himself. Travis suggests that maybe getting Bobby to do stupid things can be their "thing." Sounds like a plan.

Jules catches Bobby watching their old sex tape. They reminisce about those days when they were happy. This inspires Jules to have a heart-to-heart with Grayson. She tells him that over time things won't hurt as much and the good times will be easier to remember. Jules waits for Grayson to respond, but he doesn't. He just stares ahead with a blank look on his face. So she leaves.

Later that night, let's say 10ish, Jules steps outside to see that Grayson's front porch light is on. He does think she's cute. Come on Jules, lights on or lights off, you gotta know this guy likes you. Right?
