Written by:

Directed by:
Ted Wass

Hunter has everything going well for him. His life is easy, and he does everything well. That makes Ford and Norris jealous. Norris asks Ford to be his "great gay hope" having him compete with Hunter in the marathon, only to end up in the marathon himself, making him "grocery man". Ford is asked to compete against Hunter in the running marathon, only to win in the hot dog (15 of them) eating race against Hunter. Suzanne rummages through Ford's room to find any signs of "their marriage" only to find a hidden box full of their wedding stuff in Ford's closet. Chloe tags along with Suzanne and helps her search through Ford's room.
