Jeff needs to secure his year end bonus and does not want to kiss up to his boss Larry, so Audrey volunteers to flirt with him to help matters. While Jeff and Audrey are meeting with Larry, he shows them hideous picture of Audrey (clearly drunk) at a company booze cruise with Larry, his wife and Jeff that is displayed in Larry's office. On her way out, Audrey steals the photo from his office. After admitting this to Jeff, they now need to find a way to get it back without Larry finding out, as to not risk Jeff's bonus. They bring it back after hours and run into Larry at the office, telling him they were blowing it up for him as a gift. In the end Larry is so inspired with the idea, he blows up the photo himself and it is hung up in the office lobby.

Russell has to deal with not having trust fund anymore, as his mother has cut him off for his own benefit, so he moves in with Timmy. At Timmy's apartment Russell starts hanging out with the buildings unemployed artsy tenants. However, an annoyed Timmy gets fed up having everyone in his apartment until all hours and everyone leaves in digust upon learning that Russell and his family are Dunbar Industries which represent the Capitalist types they detest. After a night out, Jen goes to change into something more comfortable and comes back un-glamorous and ready for bed. Jeff tells Adam that what he wants is, "make up" sex; the kind where she is still hot from the night and dressed and in her make up. Next time they are out Adam tries to keep Jen all glammed up while he gets wine, but she goes to get comfortable when he turns his back. She surprises him by wearing sexy nighty under her ratty bathrobe, but he is now wearing unattractive pajamas and has Oreos all over his teeth and face. Now he is the one who has killed "the moment".
