Synopsis


In an episode that features the always rockin' sounds of REO Speedwagon, you just know someone is going to be having sex. In this case, EVERYONE is having sex!

Laurie and Grayson spent the night together. Okay, we all saw that coming at the end of the last episode. So did Andy, who pops in the next morning to tell Laurie that Grayson likes Jules. Laurie realizes that Jules is his "Someday Girl." She says, "A someday girl is someone who someday someone else, the first someone, could see themselves ending up with someday. It's super serious!" Grayson denies that's the case, but he does believe that "Someday Girl" would make a great title for a new song.

Laurie has to find out if Jules thinks Grayson could be her "Someday Guy." Jules admits that it's possible, but right now she's just trying to get over her breakup with Jeff. Ellie tries to cheer her up with some M&M Tea, which a mug filled to the brim with those delectable little candies that melt in your mouth, not in your hand. Mmmm...M&M Tea.

Grayson doesn't buy into the whole "someday" theory. He's all about living in the now. That seems to be the theme of the evening, as Travis sneaks out to spend the night in a tent with his girlfriend, Kylie. As Ellie and Andy partake in "Sexy Night," Andy is particularly thrilled as Ellie actually gets all-the-way naked this time. Grayson and Laurie decide to embark on a second night of passion after Laurie cranks REO Speedwagon's Keep on Loving You on the stereo. It's the ultimate power ballad. No one can resist it.

As for Jules, well she's made her way over to Bobby's boat where she drinks a lot of wine out of a third place golf trophy. Maybe it's the wine, maybe it's the rain or maybe it's that tune from an ‘80s band that took its name from the backend of a flatbed truck. Whatever it is, Jules and Bobby seem to have rekindled an old spark. They kiss atop Bobby's boat before making their way below deck for a night of passion. Oh boy.

The next day, Laurie and Grayson seem to regret what they did...again. Andy is ecstatic after his night of love-making with Ellie. Travis is thrilled, too. His first time was fantastic. Too bad he has to run off and leave Kylie behind to get home before his mom notices he's gone. As for Jules and Bobby, they agree that what happened last night was no biggie. Well, maybe not to Jules. Bobby on the other hand...

Jules says, "It was just sex with an ex." Hey, that's also a good name for a song. When Jules suggests it to Grayson, he rejects her idea with extreme prejudice. How did you expect him to react? That's not the kind of thing you want to hear from your "Someday Girl." He and Laurie agree not to tell Jules what they did. Andy will also keep quiet if Grayson wipes out Bobby's bar tab and gives him credit for making it happen.

When Kylie won't return Travis's texts, Andy helps him realize that's probably because he took off so suddenly after their special night. Trav asks his folks for advice. Jules tells her baby boy (who she deduces lost his virginity) that he should just say what he feels. When Travis leaves, Bobby decides to heed that advice as well. He confesses his true feelings for Jules. He'll be on his boat awaiting her response.

When Travis finally tracks down Kylie, he tells her that he's so glad that his first time was with her and that he loves her. Ellie is also letting her feelings be known to Andy. She's obviously in an emotional place, but not emotional enough to give Andy a second "Sexy Night." As for Jules and Bobby, it's a sweet moment when she tells him that she loves him. But, as REO Speedwagon might say, Jules "can't fight this feeling" that their happy ending will have to be as friends.

As this bittersweet episode ends, Grayson and Andy hammer out lyrics to a new song. It goes a little something like this: "Sex with you ex it's really great, oh but sex with your ex is a big mistake." It has a very Earth, Wind and Fire feel to it.
