Josh invites Jules to a party, which comes complete with drinking games and peer pressure from his youngish friends. Nevertheless, Jules has fun. She says, "I haven't drank out of a red plastic cup since my wedding reception." Ellie and Laurie are concerned when they hear Josh hugged her sweetly from behind without copping a feel in front of his friends. They're afraid that boy is in L-O-V-E.
Jules insists they are just having fun and forbids Josh from falling in love with her, as that would be a huge hassle. He says no prob. Liar! Josh later tells Jules that he really does love her. Anyone else hear a dump truck rumbling Josh's way? The only problem is Jules has never broken up with anyone before. Her first relationship ended because the guy went into a coma. Then there was Bobby.
Speaking of Bobby, he's having money woes and the proceeds from his boat garage sale aren't enough to get him out of debt. Although Andy does give him 10 bucks more than the asking price for a framed photo of Bobby kissing a golf trophy. Too bad Ellie won't let him hang it above their bed. Not sure why. It's a pretty nice frame.
Bobby tricks Jules into meeting him at the golf course only so he can be seen with her. 10 years ago he bet someone a grand that he would still be married and today is payday. Bobby gives Jules her share of the winnings, but shortchanges her by a couple hundred bucks. When Jules realizes this, she steals Bobby's golf clubs. That could be a problem. Bobby and Grayson have an early morning tee time to take on two other golfers for a significant chunk of change.
It takes awhile, but Jules eventually manages to give Josh his ticket to Dumpsville. But then she keeps calling him to make sure he's okay. Ellie says, "If you keep talking to him, he'll never move on." Jules takes this advice to heart...NOT! When a hurting Josh shows up at her door, Jules drags him inside to "sex away his tears." Don't feel bad, Jules. The first attempt at a breakup rarely takes.
Bobby manages to win his golf game using a set of kiddie clubs. The guy's good. He shows up at Jules' place and gives her the cash she's owed. They have a little heart to heart. Now that she's dating, Jules must deal with the possibility of hurting people. She never had to worry about that with Bobby since he's so good at just rolling with things. Bobby admits that he's afraid of what his future holds, but Jules tells him he's going to be just fine.
There's a moment at the door that catches us a little off guard. Jules gives Bobby a friendly kiss on the cheek. Afterwards, they just hang in the doorway for a bit. Nothing is said, but it may be the most vulnerable moment these two have shared in a long time. Think they still have feelings for each other?
That particular question will have to be addressed some other time, as Josh is heading up to the door. When Jules sees him she quickly says, "Don't love you. Never will. Tough cookies. Bye, Josh." She slams the door in his face. It sounds harsh, but it needed to be done. As Jules says, "You give a guy any strings to hold onto, you just know he'll cling to them forever." Of course, as she's saying this, we see Bobby sitting on his boat staring fondly at what looks to be his old wedding ring. Uh oh.
