Saad brings the case against his wife Zeba. Saad prefers not to celebrate birthdays and would like to keep the hoopla surrounding them to a minimum. Zeba, on the other hand, enjoys the more traditional birthday trappings. They can't agree on the best way to acknowledge their children's birthdays in future.

Steve brings the case against his best friend Scott. Years ago, Scott introduced Steve to a love of hockey, by inviting him to professional games and teaching him how to play. Steve went on to play in a local rec league, but Scott quit playing entirely. Now Steve wants his friend to get back into the sport and play one last season with him.

Should Scott get back out on the ice, or continue to watch from the stands? Only one man can decide.

Dana brings the case against his friend Brendan. Several years ago, Brendan started a Hulk parody twitter account, and he used Dana's real name in the Twitter handle. Brendan says the account is funny; Dana says it's bordering on impersonation. Who's right? Who's wrong?
