A couple inadvertently create a ramen noodle monster that wreaks havoc on the city while the Mayor tries to lure a tech company to Portland… Doug and Claire break up, only to wind up frustrated by a way-younger party girl and an overly caring feminist, respectively… Dave and Kath decide to run a marathon that takes place the following day… The Mayor puts the moves on Carrie with a canister of frozen sperm from his office refrigerator… Fred turns grey overnight and, in seeking answers from the universe, gets sucked into a black hole.
