Married Paul accidentally has a girlfriend.
12 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, the taxi Cabbies are in negotiations for a new contract. Everything seems to be going well until James reveals an item that the Mayor's office was hiding. Now the Cabbies are on strike.

The strike is painful for Mike since Arthur, Nikki's boyfriend, is set to fly out of town that evening. And with Mike having a crush on Nikki, he was hoping to get some alone time with her. But now it looks like Arthur will miss the flight all on the count of the strike.

In another story, Stuart has tricked Paul into going out with him to meet women. Since Claudia is out of town it should not be a problem. That is to the girl that meets Paul begins calling City Hall and referring to herself as Paul's girlfriend.

There are actually some good scenes in this episode. When the Cabbies sit down to talk in the Mayor's office, one can not help but laugh when they make their self comfortable before sitting. Another was Paul in the press conference that contained both Claudia and his girlfriend. Both were nicely done. After an episode that was less than desirable, this show brought back all the excitement of the series. Good watch.
