When Charlie takes his brother's request to throw him a piece of toast literally, it is caught straight in Alan's eye, so Charlie should now drive him to work and Jake to school. At Starbucks Charlie bumps into Sherry and surprises Alan by not even remembering why he ever dumped such a foxy female, and just gets encouraged to give it a go himself. Alan literally has trouble uttering the first word, yet she shows interest and gives him a date, to Charlie's utter surprise. Without any jealousy, cool brother coaches the stick(ler) how to be smart (get her drunk, not yourself), distant, suave etc., but one second in her presence suffices to revert Alan to a clumsy, lovesick puppy; she explains to be tired of womanizers like Charlie, rather wants a real relationship. Reassuring explanations to Jake are wasted effort: his father's love-life loses out on interest against the potential of toast as a projectile, given Alan's black eye.
