Jules doesn't like spending time with Tampa/Jill's mom, Holly. No one else thinks she's that bad. Travis, in particular, thinks she's pretty cool. Guess that's why Jules catches him sucking face with Holly on the couch. Travis claims that he's really falling for this woman. He's also totally messing with his mom. It's his way of pointing out how poorly Jules treats Holly. She simply can't box her out of her life.
Grayson agrees that it's not like Jules to not give someone a chance. Travis brings his mom to the park to witness Holly playing with her baby girl. She's just a young mom who feels like she's in way over her head. Jules was that person once upon a time. That's why she invites Holly in for a drink. As you may have guessed, the beverage of choice is wine.
Jules and Grayson want to have a beach wedding. They need to get a permit from City Hall. As it turns out, they don't allow weddings on the beach. They'd need special permission from the mayor, who happens to be Roger, the dad of Laurie's ex, Smith. The guy's recently married. His blushing bride is none other than Barb! As far as the beach wedding, Roger isn't gonna let it happen. That's why Jules wants Andy to run for mayor.
Ellie worries that she'll have to interact with people if she's married to someone in public office. She's totally ticked at Jules for planting the idea in Andy's head. Ellie eventually puts the kibosh on her hubby's political ambitions. Andy is understandably upset and depressed. Believe it or not, Ellie really does care about what makes her husband happy. That's why she decides to let him run for mayor after all. She also has a substantial list of first lady demands.
Bobby makes a racially insensitive remark to one of Laurie's customers. He starts to think he's a monster once he realizes he only eats the white side of black & white cookies. Bobby is now afraid to show his face at Krazy Kakes. Laurie eventually convinces him to come back to the shop to apologize to the man he insulted. The apology is accepted, but Bobby still feels bad because he keeps thinking stereotypical thoughts.
Laurie puts together a panel to help eliminate racism one Bobby at a time. The esteemed guests include Andy, Sig and Laurie's Twitter boyfriend, Wade, who joins them from Afghanistan via video chat. The panel agrees that the fact that Bobby is agonizing so much over this issue means that he's a better man than most. Laurie is pleased that her plan worked. She now knows that all you need to fix minority problems is a really pretty white woman.
