Fittingly, Season 3 kicks in with Jules pouring herself a glass of wine. She later invents the wine necklace. This device holds the glass close to the chest to allow for more hands-free movement. For example, the members of the Cul-De-Sac crew can now enjoy another glass of wine while the one around their neck remains safely in the on-deck circle. It's ingenious!
Jules tells Grayson that she wants a life full of surprises. There's more to the story, but some greasy-haired skateboarders are causing a ruckus nearby. Jules orders them to move out. Grayson isn't surprised by what just went down. He believes Jules is very predictable. The G-man even writes a new tune to make his point called "Jules' Slightly Longer Morning Routine Song." Catchy title.
Jules is ticked when her car gets "sharked." You guessed it. Someone turned her vehicle into a land shark through some creative use of toilet paper. Jules thinks it was the skate rats she reprimanded. She dreams of "revengance." That's not a real word, but you get the idea. She also dreams of a fairy tale marriage proposal where she does all the talking and is surrounded by everyone she loves. Aww.
As predicted, Jules gets ready for bed by popping in her mouth guard. Grayson vows to one day have sex with her while she wears that vile thing. It's his Everest. Well, the G-man is going to reach the summit sooner than expected as Jules climbs atop him to prove she's not predictable. All this is done without a Sherpa guide.
Ellie and Andy are afraid of baby Stan. Actually, he's not really a baby anymore. The little guy is walking, talking and smashing the neighbor's landscaping lights with a hammer. Kids, right? Ellie and Andy don't know what to do with their devil child of a son. Laurie, on the other hand, loves the little hell-raiser. That's because he's just like her. This is tragic news for Ellie.
Laurie gives Ellie the 411 on what it's like raising someone like her. It's a laundry list of mayhem that really kicks into gear come the teen years. Of course, Laurie didn't have the benefit of living with two amazing parents. Stan does. He'll be just fine. Unless he truly is a devil baby.
Bobby pulls a pop-in visit on Travis at his new two-bedroom house (that he's sharing with nine other guys). There's a homemade green screen in the living room. The 10 roomies use it to make cool videos to impress the ladies. Anyway, the reason Bobby stopped by is to ask Travis to let dog Travis live with him. They record this moving father-son moment amidst a rainstorm thanks to that fancy green screen.
Jules wakes up odd neighbor Tom in the middle of the night to take part in some unpredictable mayhem. They load up the car with toilet paper to teepee the house of one of the skate rats. Laurie joins them, but bolts when the cops arrive. She doesn't want to violate her ankle monitor guidelines. She's such a good citizen.
Tom gets Tasered when he tries to create a diversion for Jules' escape. Well, not really. It was just a ruse. The only cop around is Grayson in a fake police uniform. He's the one who sharked the car, too. It was all part of his plan to surprise Jules with a fairy tale proposal. The rest of her friends arrive via golf cart to witness this truly romantic moment. Jules had wanted to do all the talking, but she's speechless.
Grayson pops the question. Jules searches for a way to say yes that will let her true love know how happy he makes her. There's not a dry eye in the teepeed house. Fortunately, there's lots of toilet paper around to dab all those tears.
