Jules has cut down the wedding guest list to 80 people-give or take 61. Grayson would prefer there be less of a crowd on the big day. Actually, he'd prefer there be less of crowd every day. The G-Man needs his space. That's hard to come by with the Cul-De-Sac crew always around. Grayson gets so angry that he punches a wall. This aggressive act of violence is a total turn-on for Jules, who agrees to make their bedroom off limits to others. Yeah, that doesn't happen.
Travis believes that all the rules Bobby has created for Penny Can is a way of trying to save a game that's past its prime. He tries to make his dad and Andy feel better about their dying sport, but nothing works until he lets Bobby know that Penny Can is more than just a game. It's a father-son bonding tool. While Travis no longer has time to toss copper into tin, Stan is still at an age that he won't realize what a huge waste of time this game is for many years to come. This makes Andy one proud papa. Penny Can is back!
For her bachelorette party, Jules wants to wear a tiara while her friends explain the movie Groundhog Day to her. This proves to be quite the difficult task. Still, Jules is having a decent-enough time as long as Big Carl's replacement, Big Lou, is filled with wine at all times. Things take a turn when a frustrated Grayson lets Laurie know that Jules only really wanted Ellie to be her maid of honor. Not good.
The gang wants Jules to take some responsibility for what went down. That's why they conspire to pull a Groundhog Day on her. They keep reliving the same day until Jules gets it right. Somehow they even program "I Got You Babe" on the clock radio. We're still not sure how they pulled that one off. Anyway, Jules finally gets it. She eventually apologizes for how she hurt Laurie. You'll be happy to know that no groundhogs were harmed in the making of this Jules life lesson.
Jules apologizes to Grayson, who suggests they ditch all big wedding thoughts and elope. Sounds like a plan. Jules is totally down with getting married in Napa right away. It'll be just them. And by "them" we mean everyone in the Cul-De-Sac crew. That's not exactly what Grayson had in mind, but he knows marrying Jules means marrying everyone. Yes, the entire gang is in wine country. It's as if the mothership has called them home.
