Synopsis


Jules has a habit of dragging her friends to therapy whenever they say or do something that annoys her. Fiancés are not exempt from this. That's why Grayson must defend himself after offering "their" money to help out with baby Tampa/Jill. He had always thought they would combine their finances. Therapist Lynn agrees with the G-Man regarding the money situation. Jules takes this news in stride. Wait, no she doesn't. Since Jules has a low cash flow at work these days, she takes money out of Grayson's cash register to pay Laurie. They are supposed to be sharing finances, right? Andy helps break things down moneywise. Jules needs to let Laurie go to help turn a profit. Also, all of her other money woes will go away after she and Grayson move in together.

The problem is deciding who will give up their home. Jules and Grayson seek the advice of their friends as to who should give up his or her house. This exercise goes nowhere, so it's back to therapy.Grayson feels like he makes all the sacrifices in their relationship. It's why he stopped wearing blazers with hoodies. It's also why he's keeping his house. Jules is, too. Wow, those therapy sessions really work! Ellie notices that Andy never plays pranks on Bobby. She wonders if it's because he thinks his best bud can't take it.

This forces Andy to present Bobby with a self-generating water bottle. It fills itself up if you leave it out in the sun. Andy feels terrible about this prank, but still lets Bobby go hiking in the hot sun with no water in his bottle. He finally fesses up about the deception moments before an ambulance takes his dehydrated pal away. Bobby thanks Andy for caring enough to mess with him. Laurie's life philosophy is: Nothing ever works out unless you are in it 100 percent. Of course, she doesn't really practice what she preaches. Even though her Krazy Kakes business is on fire, Laurie still has to work at her real job with Jules. She convinces all the lost souls hanging around the coffee shop to deliver her cakes for her. Travis is amazed at how many people are willing to work for free.

This phenomenon doesn't last. Jules summons Lynn to her house after some makeup sex with Grayson. The therapist suggests that they let all hard decisions fester until the last possible moment. That'll work! There's still the issue of the business though. Jules and Laurie realize they can no longer work together, but that doesn't mean they have to be apart. After all, what better place to sell Krazy Kakes than the unoccupied side of a big real estate office?
