In this comical new episode, Brad (Damon Wayans, Jr.) takes meeting Jane's (Eliza Coupe’s) ex, Ryan, in stride - until he finds out Ryan's a woman. His shock turns to hope for hearing some juicy stories of their physical intimacy. But Brad's pressure for them to relive their past, yields a closer bond than he bargained for. Meanwhile, Max (Adam Pally) gets a cool new roommate named Chase who brings lots of classy perks to the apartment. However, when "super sleuths" Dave (Zachary Knighton) and Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) dig into his personal life, Max's quick climb up the social ladder sinks to an all-time low.
Love Means More Than Gender
Jane announces that her ex, Ryan, is coming to town and they're having dinner. Brad is fine with this until he learns Ryan is a woman. He's pleasantly surprised, though, as he envisions hearing them talk about their moments of hot physical intimacy.
At dinner, Brad pushes them to talk about their past. Jane recalls a time when she and Ryan went camping in the rain and Brad drools as she mentions their soaking wet tank tops. To his dismay, though, she ends saying they shared feminist theories all night.
Brad is visibly deflated, and then Ryan drops a real bomb: This was the night she and Jane first told each other they loved each other.
Brad cuts the date short and Jane is miffed. Brad apologizes and suggests a makeup dinner. We know something is up his sleeve, he's much too happy!
Jealousy is a Dish Best Never Served
We're right! Brad invites his ex, Melissa and they recount moments and friends in their past. Jane watches with envy and suddenly the night turns into a competition of who had the best or closest time with their ex. Both exes are totally uncomfortable with the bickering and all attempts at shifting the subject fail.
Wayans and Coupe prove once again they are at their comic best when either one of them feels threatened.
Jane and Brad ultimately realize they are both being immature and oversensitive. Brad admits he wants to be the only person Jane has ever loved. She assures him he's the person she loves THE MOST.
The lesson: Jealousy only serves to destroy a good relationship and therefore, is a dish best never served.
Snoopy Noses Lead to No Good
Max's new roommate Chase pays Max five months' rent in advance, fills the apartment with fancy furniture and fills the fridge with beer and pizza.
Max is giddy with his newfound fortune and he, Alex and Dave enjoy the new digs while Chase goes to the gym.
He doesn't come home all night and Max, Dave and Alex panic. They find his cell and Dave reads texts from Veronica, and he texts her back as Chase. They grill her to no avail and we're silently praying the quest ends there. But, they keep digging.
Zachary Knighton and Elisha Cuthbert make Inspector Clouseau look smart as Dave and Alex bumble through their sleuthing plan. They open a briefcase full of bills and call a credit card company to report a stolen card. They've gone way overboard now and our foolish cries of protest at our TV set unfortunately go unheeded.
They discover he's at a restaurant and confront him. It turns out he's with his wife, and she's furious to learn he's set up another infidelity shack. She stalks away and Chase tells an embarrassed Max he's leaving, taking his stuff, and will someday ruin his life the way Max ruined his.
Moral of this story: Snooping around in someone's personal affairs just might come back to bite you.

"You can never trust a Veronica. I had a boyfriend named Veronica, turns out he was a woman." – Max
