Then commercials, including one I must recap because it's sort of a spin-off of this show (great idea, NBC (and Honda)!). Ellie and Awesome are driving through the foresty countryside in a silver car. They tell each other "good morning" sweetly, and then Ellie says the Winter Classic was a great idea, but the two of them driving back to L.A. like this is ... Morgan pops up from the back seat and says, "Awesome!" Ellie and Awesome both scream in shock that Morgan's been hiding in there. Morgan joins in the screaming as they drive by a horse. Then they're unloading his stuff (close-up of the Honda logo) out in the countryside, and he says it's not a big deal; he'll wait for a bus. He has a luge and a bunch of other wintry stuff like ice skates. He says it will all be valuable sports memorabilia after he gets Olympic athletes to sign. But he doesn't know what he'll do with three passes to the Olympics. Awesome gets all excited, even saying, "Babe, people ski with guns! It's awesome!" Ellie says Vancouver's over 2,000 miles away, and Awesome and Morgan both look sad. But she finishes with, "We're gonna need some snacks." They all hug and then drive off, discussing which superpowers they'd have. Ellie chooses to disappear, Awesome chooses to stop time so he can have an eternity with Ellie. Morgan chooses X-ray vision and practically burns a hole in the back of Ellie's seat with his eyes. Awesome screams at him. Honda Accord Crosstour.
The next day, Chuck wakes up, puts on slippers and a robe and heads to the kitchen. Ellie and Awesome are eating breakfast in their scrubs. She greets him with a good morning, and he grabs a barrel of cheesy puff balls from the top of the fridge. They ask him how he's feeling, but he mostly ignores him and heads to the couch. He sits and eats the puff balls, and we get a montage (to Kenny Rogers's "Just Dropped In") of his feet putting on the slippers, him grabbing the robe, and him eating the cheese puffs as his facial hair gets longer and longer. In other words: He's in a funk. When the montage ends, Ellie wakes a bearded Chuck who's sleeping on the couch. She tells him that if he won't talk to her, there's someone else. Morgan pops into Chuck's line of vision, and Chuck grabs his face and sits up, asking if it's really him. Morgan says he's visiting for a few days, Hawaii's awesome, and he's flying through the ranks at Benihana. Chuck says he's proud of him and they should get together soon, but he passes out before he finishes talking. Morgan tells Ellie and Awesome it's worse than he thought. Ellie tries to force him to get up and do something today, but then tells everyone to leave and they all go as she mutters they'll leave him with his cheese balls, which is all he cares about anyway. Speaking of, Chuck notices the cheese balls are all gone, and sees the Buy More sticker on the bottom, so he knows what he has to do to get them back.
