And though there's little he can do to get Roxie to return, Eddie offers to buy a new couch at a furniture store, the owner he met while at work. Malcolm is convinced it costs too much. But Eddie is persuaded by the store's unscrupulous salesman, Miles, to use his share of their rent to make the purchase.

So when Kelly threatens them with eviction if it isn't paid, Malcolm insists she'll get her money on time. But when business doesn't pan out as expected, Eddie is left short and the roommates are given 24 hours to pay...or else. Although Malcolm uses the threat of bad publicity to get him to agree to a refund, Miles changes his mind after Eddie uses markers to deface the couch. Faced with imminent eviction, Eddie and Malcolm try one last ploy to get their refund....
