Tommy sneaks inside to talk to Shinsky in his home office. Tommy brings up the pills he showed Shinsky the other day, and says he hasn't taken any yet. Shinsky tries to say something noncommittal about how it's probably a good idea, but Tommy doesn't get the hint, and comes right into the office and takes a seat. Tommy wants Shinsky's professional opinion on something, and Shinsky reluctantly agrees. Tommy explains about Janet and the divorce, and says that the other night he caught Janet looking at him from her house, and he wonders what it means. Shinsky shrinks, "What do you think it means?" Tommy says it seemed like she was thinking about coming over or thinking about him in some way. Shinsky says it could be. Tommy acts like Shinsky said he was right on the money, and leaves all happy.
Outside, Newbie continues to work alone. The guys discuss how Keanu Reeves is a great actor. I wonder if they were trying to get him in a guest spot on the show. Garrity imitates Keanu, and the guys chuckle.
Tommy runs back inside to talk to Shinsky some more. He talks about Roger and how he and Janet broke up, and then relates how Tommy thinks he had a chance to get Janet back but screwed it up. Tommy thinks he could bring Janet flowers and give her the soft sell and still get her back, and wonders if Shinsky agrees. Shinsky shrinks, "What do you think?" Tommy thinks he's got a shot. Shinsky says that's what's really important.
Newbie. Deck. Still working. Guys shooting the shit about fishing.
Tommy is still whining to Shinsky. Now he's talking about all Janet's complaints about how he was emotionally unavailable. Shinsky reaches over and puts a coaster under Tommy's beer. Tommy keeps babbling about his wife's friends. Shinsky says he needs to do some work, and Tommy tells him to go ahead, but keeps going on and fucking on about Janet's friends.
Outside, Lou gets up to go to the bathroom and passes Tommy on his way out. Newbie thinks he's done with the deck, but Tommy says he needs to build some steps.
Inside, Lou is talking to Shinsky about his wife. Lou complains that his wife is too set in her ways and unwilling to try anything new. Lou lights up a cigar while Shinsky contemplates how much he really wants that deck.
Newbie saws through some wood. The guys talk about nothing.
Franco talks to Shinsky about how his family thinks he has a problem with commitment, but he thinks he should get all the pussy he can while he's young. Franco asks if it's okay to say "pussy." Shinsky says he'd rather Franco didn't.
