“And it’ll be interesting to see what you want then.”
If there’s one thing lawyers are good at, it’s cutting a deal. Any deal. Even if that deal means you’re going to end up getting rammed in the shower by a black man named Deebo, it’s probably the best deal your lawyer’s gonna get. Apparently, TV lawyers aren’t that much different than real life ones. After creating some “naked poetry”, Abby proposes a deal to Hank. Continue boning me and lose me as a lawyer or retain my legal services and lose this awesome booty call. The correct legal term in this scenario is “recusing oneself”.
Life is never this easy.
After some blissful morning sex, Hank drops by Karen’s Venice Beach home, uninvited of course, which makes for a great awkward moment when Zoe’s dad pops up from out the bedroom. Hank succumbs to third grade tactics before leaving to meet with Abby and her replacement, Lloyd Allen Philips Jr. (Alan Dale). Yes, that’s the bad guy from LOST. He’s a bore and Hank lets him know that. Doesn’t seem to stop him from inviting him out for a round of golf, which ends up with Hank dressed like those frat bros you loved to hate.
Meanwhile, Runkle, Marcy, and Stu have got something in the works — a series based on the sex-capades of a professional waxer to the stars. Of course they’re pitching it to Showtime. This little reprieve from Hank’s suffering has a great moment between Marcy and Runkle that seemed to offer a glimmer of hope to anyone still hoping to see the world’s most obnoxious couple back together. And due to Stu’s IBS, Runkle is there to work his magic — selling a story to the big shots and folks, let me tell you, he’s good. Probably learned sales tactics in law school. After a kiss from the Misses, Runkle meets lucky girl #21. On his way.
Meanwhile, Hank does his best to piss off Abby’s boss as he runs amok on the golf course. Pissing in the sand proves to be the last straw as Lloyd chases after him. The show runners must be huge fans of Happy Gilmore. Watch that scene one more time and tell me they aren’t.
Thankfully, Hank’s hard work on the greens gets him his wish. He gets to retain Abby’s services but after a nice little romp, “their physical relationship is over”. Oh well, wasn’t like Carla Gugino was going to show off her naked body anyway. Seriously, what’s her deal? Before she made it onto Entourage, she had no problem showing us her tits. What, like we’re supposed to take your character seriously now? C’mon, show us your tits! Please?
