On a surprisingly cultured episode, Paula and Adam explore high art and haute cuisine. Luke McKinley, Maitre d’ at the amazing Providence restaurant reveals the secrets of getting the right table and figuring out the menu. And if he were a wine, we don’t mind saying that we paired Mr. McKinley perfectly with Dr. Jennifer Greenhill, Art History Professor from USC, who helped us explore the very nature of art, from Jackson Pollock to Norman Rockwell to a toasted bagel left on a gallery floor. Plus - we debut our Department of Corrections, wherein we correct a few slight, teensy-weensy inaccuracies that may have made it onto our show.

Sophie is filing suit against her parents, Toby and Thor. If they are out to eat and seated at a table they don't like, Toby and Thor will ask to sit elsewhere. Sophie thinks that her parents should just deal with the table they've been given. Who's right? Who's wrong?

He says it's a chance to eat and have quality time with friends. His wife Casey objects to the practice, saying it strains their budget and the time Matt has to get things done around the house. Who is right?
