Ellie feels like she’s been hanging out with the gang too much and killing brain cells. Andy, Jules and Grayson are able to make Ellie feel like she’s not as smart as she thinks she is.
Trav tells Ellie that what’s great about them is the fact that they think they are smarter than everyone else.
Laurie thinks she can have sex like a man - with no emotions and Grayson doesn’t believe it. After a great romp in the sheets Smith tells Laurie that they shouldn’t act like a couple. Much to Grayson’s surprise, Laurie takes it well. Eventually, Grayson and Andy get her to admit how much she’ll miss Smith.
Bobby tries to help Jules, but he cant do anything right. She tells him that she doesn’t really need his help, but knows that he needs hers. Jules still feels a bit angry about Bobby cheating on her.
