Synopsis


Reagan and Chris look out the kitchen window at the new, incredibly cool neighbors moving into the house across the street. The neighbors are so cool that they even have a cool car! Convinced the neighbors can't see them staring, Reagan and Chris break into a cheesy dance. That is, until the neighbors catch them in mid-bump and grind!

After their initial excitement, Reagan and Chris begin wondering if they're no longer cool. After all, Reagan's in maternity wear and Chris has vomit on his shirt. Then they see two neighborhood nerds - Gene and Terry - welcome the cool couple to the neighborhood. Eager to top Gene and Terry, Chris decides to gift the cool neighbors a bottle of tequila.

Reagan calls Ava to tell her she's going to bring Amy by the office later. Ava feigns excitement, but it's clear she's a diva, not a nurturing mom type. Meanwhile, Chris sets the bottle of tequila on the cool neighbors' porch. When one of the cool neighbors opens the front door, he inexplicably mutters, "Tek-weela." Later, Chris brings Amy to The Ava Show where her cuteness immediately grab's Missy and Calvin's attention. Unfortunately, Ava has a harder time bonding with the little bundle of joy. Amy cries as soon as she comes near Ava.

The cool neighbor Trent walks to Chris and Reagan's house to thank them for the tequila. Unfortunately, Chris and Reagan stumble over their words. They're clearly intimidated by his coolness. Trent invites Reagan and Chris to a housewarming party at 10:30 p.m. Tongue-tied and contradictory, Chris and Reagan claim that since they too are cool, they'll actually be at a Radiohead concert. Trent says he understands and says he's going to add them on Facebook.

Reagan and Chris rush to make their Facebook profiles cooler before Trent requests their Facebook friendship. Reagan scolds Chris for liking boring things like soup and Flair Dry Cleaners. She urges him to say that he likes Morrissey too. Chris points out that Reagan still hasn't even bothered to update her status since Amy was born. They clearly have a lot of work to do in order to make their profiles cool. Meanwhile, Ava purchases a "baby wallet" for Amy in order to win her over. When Missy theorizes that Ava can't stand not to be loved by anyone, Ava dismisses her.

It's 11:48 p.m. and the cool neighbors' party is keeping Chris, Reagan and Amy up. Ava drops by to give Amy the baby wallet, but unfortunately, the gift just makes Amy cry. Discouraged, Ava leaves. When the music keeps blasting, Chris calls the cops and - much to Reagan's dismay - uses his real name. Now they'll be exposed as uncool! In order to make up for the gaffe, Chris and Reagan decide to attend the neighbors' party. Thankfully, Calvin can come by to babysit Amy.

Chris and Reagan join Trent and Mila's housewarming party. They pretend to be drunk party animals, and for a moment, the "cool" act seems to be working. That is, until the cops show up. Trent asks if the complaining neighbors would be satisfied if they just lowered the music. The cops call Chris' cell to find out. His cell phone rings, and everyone looks at him judgmentally. Chris admits that he only called the cops because he needed to get Amy to fall asleep. Trent says he understands; after all, Mila is pregnant, and soon they'll be in the same boat.

An embarrassed Chris and Reagan leave the party. They decide that even though they may not be cool, at least they're not as nerdy as Gene and Terry. Just then, Gene and Terry walk by. They clearly overheard everything. Then Ava calls Reagan to ask why Amy hates her. Reagan insists that that is not the case.

The next day at work, Ava tries to bond with Amy. Ava even compliments Amy's stylish tracksuit. Ava sets Amy on her lap, and finally, they seem to be getting along. That is, until Ava's over the bonding session and asks Reagan to pick up her daughter. At the house, Chris catches Reagan doing laundry and singing along to a cheesy song. Chris accuses her of being uncool, but Reagan claims she's just being ironic.
