Ray's fortunes, at low ebb after the Lenore debacle, sink further when his nosy neighbor Howard Koontz accuses him of public indecency. Fed up with Jessica's meddling, Damon and Darby yearn to go back to their dad, but progress on the home repair front remains stalled. Likewise, Ray and Tanya's frayed partnership seems to be dead in the water - until a last-minute proposal resurrects their dreams.
West Lakefield students choose "Coach Ray" to be the recipient of their fall fundraising efforts, but Ray sees their pickle-jar donation as an embarrassing metaphor for his downward spiral. All is not lost, however - Tanya has a couple of leads that could jumpstart Ray's gigolo career. But is Ray ready, willing and able enough to follow through? Meanwhile, Damon is shattered when he rushes to his sister's defense during drive-in family night, only to learn that Darby doesn't want his help.
Spurred by criticism from Damon and Darby, Ray tries to prove he's not an insensitive ex-jock. Seething from the demands of her new boss at work, Tanya turns to Charlie for advice on how to deal with an even more irritable problem: Lenore. Meanwhile, Jessica feels the pinch of the economic downturn, but can't stomach Ronnie's remedy.
Ray gives Lenore an ultimatum, and probes Tanya about the possibility of cutting ties with her fellow pimp. Disturbed that Damon has defiled the school baseball diamond, Ray considers Tanya's suggestion that his son find a new hobby to shake him out of his recent doldrums. Ignoring Ray's warning, Lenore offers Jessica advice in dealing with Ronnie. On his way to meet a new client, Ray has to think on his feet when he runs into Mike in a hotel lobby.
Ray fears he blew his cover when he mistakes a former student for a client. Tanya finds herself in charge of a felon. Jess is hired to work in the office of Dr. Matt Kopylov, the husband of Ronnie's mistress. Lenore brokers a deal with Sandee.
Tanya wants Ray to dump Lydia as a client because she's actually a cop (not just someone playing dress up), but Lydia's not cooperating. Tanya hires a substitute to entertain Lydia after Ray goes about disengaging the wrong way. Tanya seeks advice from Charlie, and Jessica, who's starting a new job, finds out that her boss loves musical theater. She may become his Dulcinea. Ray is smitten with Logan - is she jail bait?
