Storyline

Joey is looking for an interior decorator. He hires Miss California (Candice), and they are about to start dating. Alex, who still hasn't told Joey about her feelings for him, wants to prevent him from going to Candice's place, so she plays poker with him. When Joey threatens to leave because he is losing, she invents new rules to Texas Hold'Em to make him win. Bobby convinces Joey to go on to "Celebrity Poker Showdown", competing for a charity Zach recently got him involved in, a center for young destitute boys. Ignoring the real rules to poker, Joey makes a fool of himself. In the meantime, Michael gets involved in several environment-related activities with Abby, but Joey is convinced he only does that because they haven't had sex yet. Written by Pruneau
