Why is it that David Spade plays such a good sleaze? In last night's episode of Rules, Barbara (Heather Locklear) has divorced her husband and is spending some time at Audrey's. Russell (David Spade) sees this as an opportunity to pounce.
But as they spend time together, Russell thinks he might actually be falling for her--as he says, "I haven't hit it, but I don't want to quit it."
Barbara’s really producing some positive changes in him. But post-divorce she seems to have something other than a long-term relationship on her mind. When she brings home a one-night stand who looks like Tommy Lee (in a pretty unflattering light), Jeff and Adam debate whether or not they should tell a love-struck Russell. In the end, Audrey breaks the news to him gently and Russell reverts to his slimy self. While all of this is going on, Jennifer and Adam realize they've got a house full of faulty appliances and they decide to have a practice engagement party, inviting only "friends and acquaintances that we wouldn't even invite to the wedding." The plan backfired, though, when all the wedding-rejects invite Adam and Jennifer to their own events--a renewal of vows, a bark-mitzvah--and the presents they receive end up being regifted.
I don't see why it had to end this way. Just because they were invited to all these events by people they don't really like, doesn't mean that they actually had to go, right?
