Man Seeking Woman” Season 1 Episode 4 “Dram” aired on Wednesday Feb. 4, 2015 at 10:30 p.m. on FXX. Josh goes on another dating disaster with a girl named Maude. Find out what happened in the recap below.

The episode opens with Liz (Britt Lower) in a public service announcement for her brother Josh (Jay Baruchel). He hasn’t been taking care of himself. She mentions that Josh hasn’t been eating right, bathing right, nor washing his nether regions. Liz thinks that a date will be able to help him before it’s too late.

The next night, Josh finds himself in his sister’s apartment for dinner. It turns out to be a well-orchestrated affair because the only single people there are Josh and Maude. The other couples made sure that they were seated together. As they wait for Josh to make his move, Liz becomes impatient and demands them to “couple up” already. The other couples go crazy, too; it’s like a scene from “Nightmare on Elm Street.”

Maude and Josh run for safety and they end up in his apartment. Why can’t these couples understand that not everyone wants to couple up? They feel so pressured. Why can’t they just hang around and have some fun? And fun they did have as Maude and Josh kissed and smooched.

Over lunch, Josh is quizzed by his mother about this new girl. Since it’s nothing serious, he wants to keep mum about it. His mother spikes his drink and Josh wakes up in his old room at his parents’ house, which has been turned into a torture chamber. Her mother electrocuted Josh so that he would speak about Maude. When he still didn’t tell him anything, she threatened to bring the matter on Facebook.

With the help of Liz, their mother started typing a message to Maude on her Facebook wall. Before mom could hit the send button, Josh distracts her by saying that Liz is actually already engaged. Their mom sets her sights on torturing Liz instead. Josh is finally free!

Sometime after, Josh receives a text from Maude. He proudly tells his friend Mike (Eric Andre) that he’s getting a booty call. Sex without any commitment, alright! But Mike corrects him, doesn’t he realize he’s on actual dates?

This is not what Josh wants because after getting off a long-term relationship. He just wants to just take things easy. So, how does he get out of this fix? Maude is at Josh’s door, knocking like a crazy, clingy girlfriend. Mike suggests drinking the dram he carries around, which will render him temporarily dead. And so, Josh drinks this and “dies.”

At his funeral, the dram’s effects have drained and Josh awakens. Mike convinces him to lie down still and pretend he’s dead. He’ll take care of everything. Only, Mike couldn’t do it because Josh’s coffin is going to be burned.

Before things turn for the worst, Josh jumps out of his burning coffin, startling everyone. He confesses to pretending he died, which disappointed his mother and Maude.

Once again, it’s all Josh’s fault why he can’t get a new girl!
