Storyline

Drew Patton, an old buddy of Rob's, known as a shy bookworm in their college days, is now a renowned lady's man and the publisher of a men's magazine, Emperor. He asks Rob to be the comedy consultant for his magazine, a job Rob isn't sure he should accept as he isn't sure he should be associated with such a publication. To be more precise, Laura doesn't want Rob to be associated with such a publication and get caught up in the playboy lifestyle for which Drew is so famous. While Drew does whatever he can to have a private "business" meeting with Rob alone without Laura, Laura does whatever she can to prevent Rob from going to such a meeting. Drew ultimately gets the upper hand in that department, with the meeting promising to have a bevy of beautiful young women parading around. Following the meeting, Laura admits to Rob why she is so scared of him working for Drew. Written by Huggo
