Chick comes to house-sit while the gang goes on vacation. But when Jules discovers that her father hasn't been to the doctor in years, she insists on taking him. Laurie and Travis go on their first date together as a couple, and both admit that it feels awkward. Bobby is crushed to discover that Dog Travis is just using him for food.

  • "Sleeping like a baby" now means not sleeping restfully, waking every ten minutes, and being either hungry or crying.

  • Ellie and Jules review some of the changes they made to the meanings of idioms for Anne, including:
    • Cake walk means something difficult.
    • Someone in a funk needs to be slapped out of it.
    • Since slim chance means something probably won't happen, fat chance means it definitely will happen.
    • If something is very terribly then it kicks-ass.

  • Big Lou is destroyed by Grayson.
  • Riggs is lactose intolerant.
