But, when Eddie prefers to concentrate on the club's musical entertainment, leaving the other decisions to him, Malcolm suspects his best friend feels guilty over not putting up any money to get their club off the ground. Meanwhile, when Nicolette quits the police force, Malcolm hires her to be a waitress at the club. As Malcolm continues to ask his advice and then just as quickly ignores it, Eddie orders T-shirts to give away at the opening. When Malcolm complains about not be consulted first, Eddie decides that his partner should make all the decisions from now on. But once Malcolm is forced to deal with the consequences, he regrets having offended Eddie. Meanwhile, as Leonard hires his cousin to be the club's new bartender, Nicolette balks at Malcolm's choice of waitress uniforms. Wanting to be a financial contributor, too, Eddie turns to their landlord, T.R. Hawkins. While Hawkins doesn't want to loan him the $20,000, he is willing to make an investment in the club in exchange for a stake in the business. Then, after Eddie comes up with enough money to make their opening a big success, Malcolm learns that he's started to work on restoring Hawkins's collection of classic cars in order to get the money. Finally, Malcolm and Eddie are forced to take Leonard aside and remind him that, in spite of what he told his cousin Doug, they are the owners of the club. Written by Anonymous See less
