What can I say about the latest installment of Men of a Certain Age? Sad, hilarious funâ¦ at the expense of Joe of course. Let me just get right to it.

The first shot of the night is of a woman (guest star Sarah Clarke) putting back on her blouse and knocking on a door. She calls to Joe, who's in the bathroom checking out a fresh shiner under his eye.
Neurotic Joe and The Story of the Black Eye
***To avoid confusion (and frustration) I will recap this story through the eyes of Joe. I won't include all the interjections (as funny as hell as they were) because I am trying to write a concise and clean cut recap without making people scratch their head saying, "Huh?!?" every five seconds. So Joe's story will be told in italics while the much needed interjections will be in regular font. Get it? Got it? GREAT!!!

Joe says that Terry told him that the woman was "fun" and Owen immediately picks up what I am thinking, "Was she a Terry hand me down?"
According to Joe, she wasn't. He begins to tell his tale.
