Mike is clearly uncomfortable with her reaction. They get to the house and Paula says that they are now going to be having sex on the reg and that they get the smoosh room.

She agrees and they snuggle on the bed and Mike is happy the way he is with her.

Pete, Mike’s Trainer and Life Coach, comes to the house and Mike tells him how he asked Paula out officially. He says that she went crazy and started to talk about kids and other things. He says that he is going to chalk it up as first time jitters and not read too much into it. They get to exercising and Mike feels a little better.

She doesn’t like what she is hearing and says that she wants to know what is going on with them. Roger tells her to enjoy her summer and not to worry about them. However, he never tells her whether or not they are together. The episode ends.
