Synopsis


The gang is hanging out at Nick and Sheila's apartment, sharing the news in their lives. Nick's directing a Super Bowl commercial, Marny's received a promotion and Gary's conceived a brilliant new business idea: the "Wrapkin," a disposable bib for adults. Chris's only news is some mundane tasks for work, catching up on old TV shows and buying an iced tea maker. Nick tells Chris he needs to get a life. Later, Chris reports back that he's taken Nick's advice and is pursuing a new hobby: becoming a DJ. His new club name? DJ Christoph.

Marny arrives home to witness Gary's idea come to life. Clark and Yoda, grimy fingers and all, hug their dad. But his Wrapkin protects him from their clutches. Marny's suitably impressed. Gary tells her she can get in on the ground floor of this revolutionary new product for a simple $10,000 investment. Marny's not quite so keen now. Gary implores her to get on board; he simply can't go on with a life just as a stay at home dad. She suggests they bring in some other investors.

Emily and Nick return home from their date to find their nanny, Stacee, on the couch kissing Chris. They're shocked. Chris's new life as an aspiring DJ apparently includes hanging out with the college set. Embarrassed, Stacee rushes off. Nick congratulates Chris on his young love, but Emily scolds them both. Chris is defiant – he feels like a new man. He shows up later at one of the gang's dinner parties with Stacee in tow. Seeing how happy he is, Emily and Marny wonder if a new, younger woman isn't such a bad development in Chris' life; Sheila vehemently disagrees. Meanwhile, Gary's talking up the Wrapkin as an investment opportunity; no one's biting, except Chris who will only contribute his advice.

Marny finds Gary and the kids down at the park and excitedly delivers to him his first shipment of Wrapkins. She's thrilled that Gary's found an investor to make his dream a reality. The only problem is that Gary hasn't found an investor: he's using $10,000 of his and Marny's money. Marny's furious. But Gary's determined to make it work. He's going to start calling on retailers tomorrow.

Chris and Stacee show up at Nick and Emily's to announce a breakthrough. Chris is going to resign from his law firm and follow his muse; they're throwing a party to celebrate. Nick and Emily try to talk him out of it, but Chris is completely sure of himself. Nick and Emily clue Sheila in on the situation and they all agree they must attend the party tonight to extract Chris from his flight of fancy. They show up at the party which is filled with college kids. Chris is in full DJ mode and is thrilled to see them. But Sheila calls him out on the spot, telling him he's making a stupid life choice. Chris is unfazed and starts spinning records. Gary stops by, sad that not a single retailer wants to carry his Wrapkins. He drowns his sorrows as Sheila and Nick try to make another appeal to Chris to hang onto his day job as he pursues his new life as a DJ.

Gary returns home, deflated to report to Marny that he wasn't able to sell a single Wrapkin. Marny's more sympathetic now and tells Gary he needs to change his sales pitch. His old approach from his commercial real estate days won’t work for this product. He should approach it from the point of view of a stay at home dad solving a problem, she tells him. Clark and Yoda come into the family room dressed in Wrapkins; they used them to protect themselves while they painted the twins. Hmmm, maybe there's a wrinkle in the Wrapkins to be exploited.
