Molly suspects the next-door neighbor is into something shady, so she and Joyce keep an eye on him. Meanwhile, the guys' poker game turns into a confessional as they reveal their dreams and aspirations.
Teacher Molly Flynn and Chicago police officer Mike Biggs fall in love when, in the opener, they meet at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting and Molly invites Mike to speak to her fourth-grade class about his job.
Mike feels like a stupid cupid when he realizes he forgot to make Valentine's Day dinner plans with Molly, but has no reservations about horning in on Carl's romantic evening of wining and dining his new girlfriend, Christina.
When Molly suggests that she and Mike write their own wedding vows, he finds it hard to swallow, until Carl provides him with some food for thought and tells him to just pretend he's describing his favorite meal—lasagna.
