A light beer drinker, everyone knows something is amiss when Dennis orders “a glass of Vodka,” And Mick, who is just had a drink thrown in his face by a beautiful blonde decides to help Dennis forget about his clown loving wife by introducing him to his “chick of the week” life style.
Unsure of Mick’s idea, Dennis wants to stick to his own plan for life long happiness. Buck encourages Dennis, the only way to be sure is to have a plan and stick to it, otherwise love will cloud your mind and suck you dry. Dennis agrees to try Mick’s methods.
