Louis get a billboard for the restaurant, but it keeps on getting vandalized. Jessica wants to treat it as a hate crime, while Louis tries to downplay that aspect, and finally tells Jessica the back story at a fundraiser at a country club. Meanwhile, Eddie tries impressing Nicole with Ice Cube's The Predator and its prominent Parental Advisory warning on the cover.

I loved the reason for Jessica's love of Caddyshack - "It’s so much yelling! It’s so good!"

This was one of the funnier episodes. The show works best when they focus on the parents and whatever crazy antics Jessica and Louis get in to.

"I can come back...if you double my salary."
"Goodbye forever, Mitch."

I laughed longer than I am proud of at the Hoagie King's billboard.

"It paints itself, really."

This show is really finding its footing, and it seems (to my white-boy eyes) to not rely so heavily on race-related jokes.

Really liking the change in the show's tone, too.

Eddie has really sweet hair, and I wouldn't mind more grandma.

So I guess Mitch is really gone (Paul Scheer twitter status)? This was the first show I'd seen him in since becoming a "How Did This Get Made" podcast listener, sorry to see him go, though the "Goodbye forever" line makes it worth the loss.
