  • Episode Information

    George has started rehearsals for Allegiance and is finding navigating NY traffic a problem. George brings up a long time purchase he’s always fantasied buying which would make the commute more swift, a jetpack. Brad insist he cannot purchase one. This launches the couple into a dilemma involving each other’s “fantasy buys”, things each have wanted over the years that the other had to talk them out of. Brad has always wanted a Human Hamster Ball. As a result of these silly whims, they have established “House Rules” that every thing they want to purchase must pass before buying. When Brad overhears a conversation George has on the phone with Nichelle Nichols he thinks George has strayed from the “House Rules” and retaliates. Will the result leave you bouncing off the walls or will you jet out of here?
