Modern Mode website rejects Mandy's fashion designs. She and Kyle decide to deal with the bad news by taking a trip to Italy.
Mike and Vanessa are upset the kids are blowing their savings on a vacation, especially since they live rent-free. They remind Mandy that she and Kyle may need that money for her business down the road.
After having lunch with an old high school friend, Mandy decides to ditch fashion for real estate. Vanessa takes the news hard because she feels Mandy is giving up on her dream of being a fashion designer.
Mandy's news also hits home with Vanessa because she didn't follow her dreams when she was younger. Mike tries to talk to Vanessa, but she won't listen since she feels he pursued his dream of Outdoor Man.
In an attempt to help both the women in his life, Mike talks to Mandy. He reminds her of her incredible talent for fashion. Despite being tired of the rejection, Mandy appears open to sticking with fashion after Mike's pep talk.
Mike later tells Vanessa that Outdoor Man was his goal. Vanessa and the girls were his dream. He reminds his wife, they made that dream happen together.
Kristin enlists Chuck's help with a new Outdoor Man grill promo. Ed overhears and volunteers to be the spokesperson.
Disaster erupts when Ed becomes camera shy and can't say the words Kristin wrote. He attempts to ad lib, but it doesn't fly with Kristin.
Chuck saves the day when he dubs his voice into the promo, so it looks like Ed is saying the words. He also does some trick camera angles to make the spot more focused on the grill instead of Ed.
Both Ed and Kristin are thrilled with the new promo.
