A toothache forces Jessica to face her fear of the dentist. She hates teeth and admits to rarely flossing. Her poor dental hygiene leaves her in need of a root canal. The dentist does some preliminary work. After the appointment, Jessica ignores the doctor's orders and heads straight for the sweets.
Jessica spends some time with her "bowl-legged" pup Daisy. "Your teeth look better than Mommy's," she says as she cuddles the dog.
Nick's family comes over to watch the USC football game. Jessica teases him about getting into the game. "You are the biggest dork. Look at him in his getup," she jokes.
Nick is offended and goes to watch the game in the theater room. Jessica asks what his problem is and offers to go into the theater room instead. "Go watch Lifetime," Nick tells her. The game is further interrupted as more guests arrive, with their kids in tow.
Later on, the couple discusses options for their Halloween costumes. Nick wants them to dress up as Kid Rock and Pamela Anderson. Jessica won't hear it. Instead they decide to stick with their original idea, the cast of Three's Company.
While Jessica has her root canal, Nick decorates the house for Halloween. As neighbors watch, he tries to make the setup as scary as possible. Daisy is easily frightened by the noisy decorations.
At the dentist office, the root canal specialist goes out of his way to make Jessica feel comfortable. He uses a special method so she won't feel the needle. Afterwards, he tells her she would have lost the tooth if the cavity had been larger.
As Nick waits for Jessica to come home, trick-or-treaters begin to arrive. Nick hides behind the door and flicks the lights on and off. It doesn't take long for the kids to figure out what he's up to. Nick comes out with Daisy and talks with them. "Where's Jessica?" they ask. When Jessica does arrive, Nick scares her at the door too.
Nick accompanies Jessica to her root canal follow-up visit. "Let this be a lesson to you, you and your children one day," the dentist says. On the way out the door, Jessica sneaks a candy from the dish on the desk. Nick shows Jessica where he is missing tooth. Even after six years of dating, she had not known he had a gap. Nick tries to explain what happened, but Jessica is too busy on her Sidekick.
