Happy Endings: Like Father, Like Gun

Brad's uptight dad is in town for some serious health tests. When he gets an all-clear, he cuts loose with a new lease on life, something Brad has a hard time adjusting to. Meanwhile Penny meets a gorgeous Italian guy; the problem is, he doesn't speak English, and Penny, who once studied in Italy, finds she can only speak the language when she's drunk.

The scene opens with Brad talking on the phone telling them that the bed is ready for him. Penny asks if they are turning their house into a Bed and Breakfast. Brad tells that his father is coming into town. Dave asks if he is still frightening and Brad tells that he is, but Jane tells that he is not that bad. Penny tells that the guy she is dating “pexted” her. Jane asks what that is and Penny tells that it means “penis text”. She tells that she and Alex are in a boy slump, but Alex tells that she isn’t even looking for a guy. Brad tells that girls can get out of a slump easily and Penny tells that it is more than intercourse. Jane tells that the reason why she is not getting any is because Penny still calls it “intercourse”. Brad tells what Jane calls it, but the friends block it out. Max tells that he wants to “pext” the guy back and Dave tells to allow Brad to do it if they are going to do it. ..
