Getting a liquor license turns out to be a great move for Dave on "Happy Endings" (Wed., 9:30 p.m. EST on ABC). Suddenly, he's on the cover of local magazines for cool hangouts in Chicago, and even luring in cool friends like guest star Colin Hanks. As the episode progresses and his success grows -- who knew an outdoor movable speakeasy would be such a hit -- Dave was surprised to see his old friends pulling away from him.
What he didn't realize was that they were doing so because for some reason they were inexplicably all having sex dreams about him, except for Alex. As it turned out, her ridiculous cleanse routine that Penny bailed out on halfway through the episode, was the reason Alex was spared -- though at the same time, she's the only one who actually has slept with him.
What they find out is that it's a secret ingredient in his drinks, later revealed to be turpentine, that's leading to the overly uncomfortable dreams. Except for Penny, who was actually enjoying the romance of her fantasies. At the end of the episode, though, Alex comes off of the cleanse, re-enacts her infamous ribs eating scene and then downs way more of Dave's drink than she should have. Her subsequent sex dream with him turns out to have been no dream at all.
Much like Dave's belief that Colin Hanks was a cooler option as a friend than his original gang. When he felt rejected by them, he drew closer to Colin and his intern. There he found a world of painfully boring stories, an intern with an insatiable desire for cocaine, and himself with an offer to move to Tampa -- apparently this Colin Hanks doesn't have a lot of close friends.
