Eli dates a single mom whose son, Gene, bullies Eli. Trouble ensues when Gene steals the prototype of Ghost Child´s newest game. Meanwhile Warner picks fake fights with Camila so he can sleep on the couch, which is more comfortable than their bed.
Ghost Child Games is in need of a new video game concept, so Warner and Veronica encourage Eli to revert to his tried-and-true method of coming up with ideas: ´medicinally enhanced´ baked goods. But the guys discover an even better use for the treats when their pain-in-the-neck dads, David and Crawford, start eating them and totally mellowing out.
Eli und Warner arbeiten an einem Mafiaspiel und engagieren den Mafioso Johnny Johnny DeSalvo DeSalvo, um es möglichst authentisch zu gestalten. Nach einem Pokerspiel mit ihm verliert Warner Elis Anteil an der Firma und so hält die Mafia Einzug in ´Ghost Child Games´. Doch als Warner Johnny beibringen muss, dass Eli und er die Firma wiederhaben wollen, ist dieser nicht gerade begeistert.
When Eli and Warner fire one of their employees right before the holiday season, the ex-game designer seeks his revenge by including an offensive word in their family-friendly Christmas game. Meanwhile, Edna encourages David to get a job as a mall Santa in order to earn enough money to buy Eli a gift.
Eli starts dating Veronica´s friend, Anne, an attractive, but somewhat annoying comedian, and he agrees to move in with her just to spite David. Meanwhile, a recording session for video company Ghost Child´s new game, ´Occue-Die Wall Street´, gets out of hand when Crawford helps Warner with some ´businessman´ voice-over work.
