The hurricane did some damage to Grayson's house, so he's forced to move in with Jules. Lynn believes this could cause some problems because sometimes people place their ex's baggage onto their current partner. She may have a point. Grayson freaks out when he learns that Jules lied to her. He just doesn't want to go into marriage feeling like he's been tricked. Jules promises to fix this situation. Jules writes down a list of things Grayson may not know about her. Laurie and Travis make lists, too. After the G-Man reads them, he and Jules can celebrate with an "I know the crap out of my fiancee dinner."
Grayson appreciates the gesture. It looks like the fight is over until Jules freaks because he's late for dinner. She does laps around the house to calm down. It's a coping mechanism several other members of the cul-de-sac crew have been trying lately. Laurie and Ellie wonder which of them is better in the bedroom. The only way to know for sure is to ask someone they've both slept with. Travis cross-references each lady's substantial list of past male suitors to learn they share a common bond with one Vincent Hawthorne. They get the guy on the phone to settle the debate. Laurie is bummed when Vincent picks Ellie. As you can imagine, Ellie is gloating up a storm. She's taken down a few notches when she overhears Andy say she's lost her old spontaneous ways.
Travis tries to console Ellie, but it's just a ploy to get revenge on her for some earlier embarrassing comments. He introduces Laurie as the undisputed "trampion" of the world. All this sex talk has made both Ellie and Laurie introspective. Both get some solid advice from Travis. This leads Andy getting lucky during a day that wasn't originally on the schedule for sex. Jules and Bobby disagree about who is messier. That's why they embark on a "White Shirt Challenge." First person who gets a stain on their shirt loses. Andy acts like Bobby's own personal Secret Service agent sworn to protect his white shirt from any messiness that comes its way. It's a dangerous assignment that reaches DEFCON 1 when Andy dives in front of an incoming airborne meatball. It may be the most heroic act ever executed by a Secret Service shirt protector. Grayson finds a shirtless Bobby living in his damaged house. Apparently, the hurricane did an even worse number on his boat. Later, Bobby lets Jules know that Grayson will be good to her. She can't be afraid to give him a chance. Jules decides to do just that by letting him sit on the couch with wine. That's something she still doesn't let Bobby do. Too bad Grayson trips on his way over. It causes him to spill wine all over her white shirt. We have a winner in the White Shirt Challenge: Bobby Cobb!
