Jules is having her bathroom redone by Gerald, a handyman with daddy issues. Jules has been a source of inspiration by helping Gerald deal with his personal demons. She's been known to intervene in other people's lives from time to time. Plus, you do whatever it takes to get good tiles.
Grayson is having a bad bout of songwriter's block. He's also still dating Sara. Jules has mixed feelings about this because she's not sure how she feels about Grayson. But she likes Sara, so it's not a problem when Grayson brings her to her bathroom-warming party. Everyone is impressed with the glorious bathroom but depressed to see Grayson fawning all over Sara. After seeing him hold onto her purse all night, Jules says, "Grayson is totally pursey-whipped." It's a cool new phrase she made up. It may catch on.
Jules believes she meddles because ultimately everyone appreciates it. Well, everyone but Grayson. Jules tells him that if he keeps acting like a lady butler, Sara is going to pull away. Grayson tells Jules to back off right in the middle of her luxurious new bathroom. Unfortunately, Jules was right. Sara asks for some space.
Andy wants to have sex with Ellie. What else is new? But it's been awhile and he's more than ready for some action. That's the problem. Ellie feels the pressure of his desires and that makes her not want to do it. She wants him to want it but doesn't want to know that he wants it. Don't worry if you don't get it. Andy's not getting it either.
To make Ellie seem less desirable, Bobby advises Andy to think of her as having a bucket head. After all, there's rarely anything attractive in the bottom of a bucket. It's a good plan until Ellie disrobes. Even with a bucket head, Ellie has a hot body. The only way Andy is going to be able to suppress his urges is my spending a little private time with himself. So, in the name of love, he does just that.
Travis is really into photography. He snaps shots of everyone in his life, including girlfriend, Kylie. She wants him to delete an embarrassing shot of her kissing Travis. Not Travis the photo-hound, but Travis the "actual" hound. After he pretends to delete the picture of his girl's pooch smooch, Trav continues to capture life moments through his lens, one of which features a shot of an unclothed Ellie. Better not show it to Andy.
When Travis begs Ellie to use her naked photo for a project, Kylie gets upset. Travis doesn't understand why. Ellie explains that he should have fought to use Kylie's photo instead of hers. Laurie agrees. She says, "Women do love when men fight for them. There is nothing less sexy than a dude who respects a restraining order."
When Jules gets backlash from her friends regarding her meddling ways, she banishes them from her bathroom. She does, however, invite Gerald the handyman back to chat. Also, she needs him to fix some loose tiles. Gerald convinces Jules that she shouldn't stop meddling. Helping people is what she does. She's like Batman!
The pep talk with Gerald inspires Jules to actually leave her bathroom to make nice with Grayson. She tells him that if he wants to get Sara back, he needs to be that edgy, aloof guy she kind of finds attractive. She says, "Women just want a guy who respects our independence, but also wants to take care of us. We want a guy who's secure, but also gets jealous. We want a guy who truly listens to us, but also wants us to kinda shut up." Basically, she says that women want an Everything Man. Hey, that sounds like a good name for a song!
When Sara stops by, Grayson shows a little spine and doesn't cater to her every whim. Things are back on track with these two. Travis also squares things with Kylie by begging to use her picture. Even Andy and Ellie are looking good. Andy's just gonna need a little extra time to regroup when Ellie wants to get intimate.
With his writer's block gone, Grayson sings his new Everything Man song to the group as Sara chimes in with additional vocals. Everyone enjoys the tune and it's good to have the old Grayson back. Of course, Jules isn't sure if she's happy he's back with someone other than her. Hey, at least she still has her new bathroom.
