Charlie and Chelsea are still dating but have fallen in to a bit of a rut, prompting Chelsea to end the relationship after one too many nights staying in, watching TV and eating Chinese take out. Charlie is hurt badly by the break up, but with no idea how to compensate for it he begins overindulging in sweets and pudding. Charlie seeks out Dr. Freeman for guidance, and ends up taking Chelsea with him to couple's counseling session in order to get her back. However, after attending the appointment he realizes couples therapy might not be the best solution. Meanwhile, Alan takes pleasure in watching Charlie suffer through couples counseling, and Jake tries in vain to keep some pudding in the house.
