Deacon is planning to take an aptitude test at IPS, and when Carrie hears about it, she encourages Doug to follow his dreams, hoping he'll take the test as well. Turns out Doug's dreams are to become a bartender - like Tom Cruise in the movie Cocktail. So, Doug enrolls in a local bartending school to find out what he's been missing all these years. He decides that bartending is not for him, but after Carrie finds out how much money he makes in tips, she encourages him to keep at it just a little while longer.
Meanwhile, Arthur is running for high office at the senior center.
