There's a hurricane headed to town. Jules is so excited that she throws a hurricane party. Laurie's not in the most festive mood though. She just found out that Wade has reenlisted. Holly suggests that Travis date the suddenly available Laurie. Jules calls a meeting to discuss this possibility. Much to her dismay, she finds that some are okay with the two of them dating.
Before the hurricane party, the gang heads over to Bobby's boat to act out The Perfect Storm. The movie scene is put on hold once Travis calls to announce he's going for it with Laurie. Jules is bummed. Bobby believes that Travis and Laurie would be good together. The gang decides to play a game to decide who gets their way. A quick round of Penny Can gives way to a game of Celebrity. Too bad Jules is horrible at this game.
Jules and Ellie devise a way to cheat at Celebrity. They bring the game over to the bar where the guys are entertaining three lovely ladies who were looking for shelter from the storm. This leaves the two prospective lovebirds home alone. Travis tells Laurie that she needs to find someone who puts her needs ahead of her own. A possibly intimate moment is ruined when Wade chimes in for a video chat. Bummer.
Wade convinces Travis to place the video tablet in front of his face so he can act as his body. This actually works as Laurie and Wade's proxy dance together. Travis is a reluctant participant in this exercise. He can't continue when Wade asks him to put his hand on his girl's butt. Laurie asks Travis if she should give Wade another chance or just move on.
Jules eventually realizes that being with Laurie would make her baby boy very happy. Too bad Travis already advised Laurie to see things through with Wade. He knew it would be the best thing for her. Jules says, "She finally found someone who cares about her happiness more than his own." Nice. Heartbreaking, but nice.
