Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Tom (as Robert Clendenin)
Katie O'Rourke ...


Grayson decides Jules asks one concession too many when she wants him to move in with her, so she drags him through a gang council, tricked by both, to the marriage consultant, who finds them lucrative but exasperating clients. Travis encourages Laurie to go all the way and start her dream, a cake business, but rightly doubts her lazy trick to expect the deliveries to be done for free by bored bar patrons. Little Stan remains too brave and clever to be 'educationally' scared by mean mother Ellie, but she tricks Andy into playing a terrible prank on so-far always spared buddy Bobby, who thus ends up thirsty in a hot wilderness. Andy audits the real estate firm and var books and suggests sacking useless Laurie. Written by KGF Vissers

The One With Laurie's Cake Business...
6 August 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this episode. It was funny, entertaining, and just very good.

In this episode, Travis tries to convince Laurie to go ahead with her dream of starting a cake business, but then gets random strangers at a coffee house to start doing her deliveries for her. Which is very funny. Meanwhile, Jules needed to find a way to cut back expenses at her real estate agency, and Ellie convinces Andy to play a mean prank on Bobby.

Fun Fact: Jules talks about Ellie stealing her thunder. In Friends, Courteney Cox's character, Monica, accused Rachel of the same thing, stealing her thunder.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
