"I normally wake up with an erection but you've put an end to that." - Stuart
Stuart wakes up in bed with Jessica. She's annoyed he won't put her up in a hotel while the pool house is under construction, but he won't hear of it. He's already paying for a new roof. He continues his plan to avoid getting ripped off by befriending the workers, three fraternity-boy types from Long Beach. He offers them beer at 10 a.m., initiates an awkward game of catch and accidentally slices his hand open on a sheet of glass.
The guys congratulate Stuart on his relationship with Jessica, but he confesses they aren't actually sleeping together: "She would love me to, is the truth." The men suggest he needs a "slump buster," a one-night stand to end a dry spell. Stuart accepts their invitation to find a girl in Long Beach.
