'Baby Daddy' recap: One-night stand-off

Season 4 | Episode 13 | “One Night Stand-Off” | Aired June 17, 2015

The dashing Eddie Cibrian guest-stars as Ross, Riley’s one-night stand and new boss, in this week’s new episode of Baby Daddy. How did Riley get into this pickle (good one, Bonnie)? Well, you won’t be surprised that it all started out as Ben’s idea.

Ben and Riley are trying to become friends once again, since their efforts toward having a romantic relationship failed. At the Bar on B, Ben mentions a game he plays with the guys called “Shot and Score.” Like the title suggests, you take a shot and try to score with a stranger whom your friend randomly points to at the bar. Ben and Riley play, and Ben sets his sights on a beautiful woman, Jessica (Hilty Bowen), while Riley goes after Ross. The next morning, Riley catches Ben sneaking Jessica out of his apartment in the hallway, where he shamelessly admits that he “shot, scored, and a little more.” Riley admonishes him for leaving her alone the entire night, but once Ben goes back into his apartment, Riley is pushing Ross out of her apartment and into the elevator.

At work, both Riley and Ben run into problems. First, Riley walks into her office to see Bonnie using it her office equipment to print out her realtor flyers. Instead of kicking Bonnie out, Riley sits down and decides to ask her for some advice about one-night stands—since last night was her first one. Bonnie (unsurprisingly) doesn’t remember her first one-night stand, but from the details that Riley is sharing, she’s thinking that maybe it wouldn’t be so bad if it didn’t stay a one-night stand between her and Ross. At that moment, Riley spots Ross outside her office window. Afraid that he’s a stalker or a client, Riley freaks out, and when he comes into her office and introduces himself as the new managing partner, Riley is beyond humiliated … but Ross looks just as embarrassed. Bonnie tries to defuse the tension by hilariously explaining her presence in the room—as Riley’s client who owns a pickle business.

As for Ben: A possible new owner of the Bar on B, Ian, is trying to close on a deal, but Ian first had his wife, Jessica—yes, that SAME Jessica—scope out the place the night before. Ben, who is determined to impress his potential new boss, is stunned to find out that he accidentally slept with Ian’s wife. Their meeting starts well, and Ben and Jessica keep things cool, until Tucker arrives and recognizes Jessica as “the naked girl” he ran into last night at his and Ben’s apartment. Looks like the Bar on B is going to need to find a new owner ASAP, or Ben is out of a job and his career as a bartender is over.

Ross checks in with Riley later to tell her that she’s on a new case—the best case in the firm. Thinking he only gave it to her because she slept with him, she confronts him with a speech about how she wants to earn her cases the right way. She happens to burst in while he’s in a teleconference with other lawyers, who heard Riley’s little rant. Embarrassed once again, she runs out of the room, but Ross runs after her. He tells her that he made the decision to give her the case before he slept with her; his decision was solely based on her track record. Riley is happy to hear this and admits how weird this whole thing is between them. Ross agrees and asks her if she wants to go out again. Riley accepts and the two kiss, only to be interrupted with the Pickle Queen herself, Bonnie, who was hiding under the desk trying to plug in a lamp.

Ben is resigned to the fact that his career in bartending his over. He told Ian that he would quit the Bar on B if he bought the place so that his coworkers won’t lose their jobs. Ian accepted that offer and promised to make sure another bar would never hire Ben, because he’s into revenge and all that. Danny feels bad for Ben, who is worried about how he’s going to provide for Emma now that he’s unemployed.

Danny leaves as Tucker joins Ben in drinking on the balcony. The two get so drunk that they head down to the Bar on B to steal the “B” sign. The next morning, Ben and Tucker wake up on the couch on either side of the “B,” happy with their success.

That’s exactly when Danny walks in, looking ready for business with a suit on. He asks Ben why he stole the sign off their bar, and it takes Ben a few seconds to realize what Danny just said: As an investment for the future, Danny outbid Ian’s price for the Bar on B and bought it for Danny and Ben to run on their own. Danny is unsure how long his professional hockey career will last, so investing in a business seems like a good idea. It’s sort of amazing, the things Danny is and isn’t smart about, but it always manages to be just enough to save the day.

Baby Daddy airs Wednesdays at 8:30/7:30C on ABC Family.
