Holly is a lady who used to hook up with Grayson "like really hard." It's a topic of discussion during some pre-wedding marriage counseling sessions. The issue of kids also comes up. Even though Jules agreed to go on any adventure with the G-man, she's still making him feel guilty about having children. Of course, she may not have a choice in the matter after Holly swings by with Grayson's baby girl. Surprise!
Laurie is stunned to learn that old friend Holly's baby, Tampa, is Grayson's. You'd think that's something the kid's godmother would know, right? The truth is that no one can truly know if he's the dad until there's a paternity test. Jules and Grayson plan on doing their own special Maury Povich Show celebration dance once they prove he's not the father. This trashy dance routine never comes.
Grayson needs to know that this new information isn't a deal-breaker for Jules. She's just not sure. That's why she goes to another therapy session. Actually, it's just a practice session where Andy subs as Grayson. He says some things that Jules really doesn't want to hear. A follow-up chat with Ellie has Jules reevaluating her situation. She later introduces the gang to the newest member of their family, Grayson's daughter, Tampa.
Ellie likes to surf. It's her way of scoring some alone time away from the Cul-De-Sac Crew. The problem is that she doesn't really know how to surf. She just sits on her board. Bobby offers to teach Ellie how to hang 10. This could be a problem according to Andy. He says his wife is can't be taught anything. Turns out he's right, but Bobby refuses to give up on her. Pretty soon Ellie is catching waves like a pro.
Laurie misses all the flirting she used to do with Travis, so she starts hanging out at his place. While there, she takes it upon herself to teach his roommate, Sig, how to dance to prep for pledging a frat. Laurie's seen Stomp the Yard like a million times, so she knows what she's talking about. Sig thinks he'll be able to do the dance but only if Travis is up there with him. That's not gonna happen.
Laurie tells Sig that she can talk Travis into anything, but strikes out this time. That's because things got a little too flirty for him awhile back. Travis knew nothing was ever going to happen between them, so he started to feel stupid. That's a bummer because his little crush always made Laurie feel special. She bids Trav adieu but not before giving him the perfect cool dude nickname for his house: The Panty Graveyard.
As it turns out, Travis will still do anything to see Laurie smile. That's why he takes part in the coordinated dance routine that will undoubtedly get Sig into that fraternity. It also has Laurie grinning ear-to-ear, just like old times.
