Mad Without You
With Jamie in Connecticut for a weekend with her dad, Paul is ready to play. However, he soon finds out that single life isn't all he remembered it to be. After Ira heads off for a date, Paul returns home to find Fran in his shower. Calling Jamie, he learns that Fran often showers at their apartment after going to the gym. But that's only the beginning. Before the afternoon is over, Paul calls Jamie with several more questions. However, it's when he doesn't call to ask if she donated their bed to a charity thrift store that Paul finds himself in trouble. While talking with his neighbors the next morning, Paul begins to suspect that the Conway's bed was the one that was supposed to be picked up and not his. Though not wanting to tell Jamie what happened, Paul first confirms that she didn't order them a new bed before heading off to find the one he gave away. With Ira along, their first stop is the opera where they interrupt the performance to quiz Hal and Maggie about which charity was supposed to have picked up their bed. Even after explaining the mix up at the thrift store, Paul learns it will cost him $400 to get his bed back. Paul then negotiates with Hal to buy his bed so he can trade it for his own. However, after arriving with the Conway's bed in tow, Paul's plan is derailed when he finds a customer ready to buy his. When he cannot persuade him to consider another, a bidding war forces Paul to spend $500 more to get it back. But Paul finally loses his race against the clock when he cannot get the bed back together before Jamie comes home ready to use it.
