When Philip sadly tells Simon they are forced to accept, and use, four VIP lodge tickets from his gallery client Preston Mann, Bobby can't believe they aren't eager to attend a Red Sox - Yankees match. When Liz arranges for him to get the two spare tickets, Bobby gets hugged -a first in years- by Mace for the golden opportunity. However, Mace remains grumpy and unappreciative, complaining the 'queers' ruin the sport by enjoying the lodge luxury such as big screen TV, rich spread and bar with waitress. Bobby finds the middle road but gets desperate to see if anything could make the men bond rather then bicker, then gets hit another way. Meanwhile ma Audrey compensates Liz for being left alone by taking her along to a clothes basement sale. Unfortunately, that's an experience she abhors (cat-fighting for rags her fashion sense abhors) while Maddy has a vendetta there.
