After Mike licked the batteries to make the remote function again, an excited Molly goes downstairs to announce that she finally finished her book. She is disappointed that her family is not enthusiastic about it. Read on to know what happens next.

Joyce tells Molly that it is her fifth time finishing the book. She reminds her that she keeps on rewriting it. Vince says that the first celebration was doing a conga line. Mike reminds her waking them up at three in the morning singing “She’s a Molly Good Fellow” after her second announcement. Joyce recalls Molly firing Mike’s pistol in her fourth announcement. Vince hails Molly as the “girl who cried book.” However, Molly insists that she is done. Joyce goes in the kitchen to get champagne.


Molly shares her struggle in editing the two main characters into one character. She was also confused whether to make it a male or female. Vince casually suggests why not making a homosexual character. Molly is having a light bulb moment. Mike stops her because she must not edit it again. Molly still returns upstairs to rewrite. Joyce arrives with a bottle of champagne and opens it. Mike tries to stop her. Joyce tells him she bought a case and wants to make Molly’s rewriting spree a drinking game.

Molly goes to Peggy’s house because she wants harsh criticism to improve her book. She is sick of her family’s compliments. When she stepped in, she finds out Peggy’s friends are in the house. She starts asking the ladies about their suggestions and comments on her book. Turns out, the old women are very open and aggressive about sex. Molly is having a hard time taking notes because they talk fast.

Mike enters the bedroom and finds Molly hiding in the closet. She says she wants to forget the traumatizing sexual things Peggy’s friends have told her. She goes out of the closet to rewrite her book from the start. She gets exasperated when Mike tries to stop her. She returns to the closet. When she went out again, she finds out that Mike sent her story to the publisher. She is so furious that she gets hysterical and even punches the exercise ball.

Mike asks Harry for help to hack the publisher’s e-mail and delete what Mike sent. When Molly finds out what they are doing, she stops them. She changes her mind about not sending her story. After Vince and Harry left the room, Mike and Molly enter the closet to have some fun.

Mike and Molly visit Peggy and her friends to thank them. The ladies give them a gift which seems to be an intense sexual photo that makes the couple disgusted. After going out, Mike tells Molly not to hang out with those women again.
