Paul brings in his cat, Mr Buttons.
9 January 2015 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

Mike is upset that his office seems to be the home of a large rat. Paul tells Mike that he has a killer cat named Mr Buttons. Paul offers to bring Mr Buttons down to the office and take care of the rat during the night. However things do not go as planned.

Also, Stuart has been evicted out of his apartment due to the failed bar adventure. It just so happens that Carter is looking for a roommate and agrees to take Stuart. But Stuart makes it so difficult that Carter reneges and gets another roommate. Only now Carter may have more of a problem that just Stuart.

Both stories were at least entertaining and well performed. Out of the two, the story about Mr Buttons was filled with the most laughs and the audience was drawn into the mix. The roommate situation proved to be a story that was necessary since the outcome will be related in future shows. Overall this was nice enough with some meaningful laughs. Good watch.
