Mike runs over Caitlin's soon to be husband.
11 February 2015 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

Mayor Winston is going to start a bus trip on his Senate run across the State of New York. Everything is set as the Mayor, Carter, Mike and Caitlin are ready to board the bus. As Mike is moving the bus due to traffic, Caitlin springs some information on him that Trevor, her ex-husband, are going to get married again. With Trevor present to see Caitlin off, Mike hits Trevor with the bus. The trip is delayed.

In another story, Paul and James are contemplating why everyone seems to listen to what Carter says. Paul finally decides that it is because Carter has facial hair. Now Paul and James are out to grow mustaches so they can get the same respect as Carter.

The episode was well played by the actors which always making for a more interesting watch. There are some humorous exchanges between characters especially between Stuart and Nikki on dating advice. But a scene that made me laugh out loud was a small exchange between the Mayor and Mike about being on the open road. Barry Bostwick plays his character to perfection and can make an ordinary line exceptional. Overall an entertaining episode.
