Storyline

Bill joins the Ted Chambers gym because, as always, Bill can't control himself around celebrities. As quickly as he joined, Bill wants to quit the gym but a guest-starring Ben Stiller refuses to let him go. The staff learns Dave's big dark secret that he is... Gasp! ...A CANADIAN!!! Of course this leads the staff to question all they know about their own Dave Nelson and themselves. The staff is left feeling hurt and as Beth says, "naked." Jimmy seeks Dave's help to work on his table manners so he can sit next to Bill Clinton at a White House dinner. Dave confesses to Jimmy that he has hidden his true origins because of his fear of being thought to be a Canadian spy. To this, Jimmy replies, "you poor misguided Canadian bastard."

Quotes

Dave: Sir, I've eaten with you dozens of times, and your table manners are fine.
Jimmy: No they are NOT fine! Listen to me. I've spent years cultivating the worst table manners on the planet.
Dave: Excuse me?
Jimmy: You don't get it, do you?
Dave: No, but... you know, I've grown accustomed to that.
Jimmy: It's an old business ploy. You intimidate the guy you're dealing with by eating like a slob.
Dave: And... that's effective?
Jimmy: Oh, hell, yes. I've cut millions off of deals by eating baked beans with my HANDS.
