Stuart\'s plans to pick up his roommate Jessica\'s friend go awry when he finds himself out in the LA nightlife with his two friends: glum Wade, in the middle of separating from his wife, and dirty-minded, wheelchair-bound ladies\' man Kives.
When Wade\'s ex-wife rejects his plan to take her out in a limo, Stuart, hoping to impress ladies, hits the town in the luxury car with Wade and Kives.
After Jessica points out that a woman at the gym\'s drink counter is flirting with him, Stuart asks her out but starts getting paranoid about her texts.
Stuart goes to a gay bar to hit on women after Jessica tells him that straight women hang out there because they\'re less likely to be hit on.
Stuart throws a pool party in the hopes of it becoming a playboy-esque bash. Meanwhile, Jessica takes in a 19-year-old homeless girl.
Stuart tries to befriend the tough construction workers doing repairs at his house, Wade makes a romantic gesture to win back his wife, and Jessica tells Glenn she wants a real relationship--all with disastrous results.
Stuart and Jessica\'s time at a wedding begins without much promise, but soon finds great professional news for her and a promising interaction with a lovely model for him.
Wade faces a hard truth about his failing marriage. Jessica\'s glee over her breakthrough casting turns to sadness when she gets bad news. Stuart\'s quest to see Kimberley, a model, takes several surprising turns.
After his ex-girlfriend calls to tell Stuart that she and her husband will be visiting LA, Stuart, desperate to show he\'s "won at life," enlists Jessica to pose as his girlfriend.
