Joyce tells that they are going out to dinner. Vince is rude in his comments to Joyce that Molly picks up on and after they leave, she tells that she doesn’t like Vince because she wants her mom to have a man that listens to her and will treat her with respect. Mike is not listening and is watching Boxing. After the boxing match, Mike unbuttons his pants and promises to take Molly out tomorrow night. Vince and Joyce get in and Vince shows that a friend of his gave him two tickets to the Bull’s game in the 3rd row. Mike is excited.

Mike and Molly go to bed and Mike is reading “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”. Molly enters the room and Mike is upset with her about the game. Molly tells that she is not telling that he is not allowed to go to the game and she tells that it is her decision whether or not she is going to be mad. The next day, Mike goes to Samuel and asks if he ever accepted a bribe, because that is what Molly called the tickets from Vince were. Samuel tells that he gives Mike and Carl free things and they have never given him extra things before. He mentions that Samuel was even robbed when they were there eating their free oatmeal. Carl tells that the ticket to the Bull’s game should not be used because Molly told him not to go and he has to stand by her on it.
