In this episode of "Go On", Ryan goes to his fridge one morning and is startled by what he later describes to group as the ghost of his late wife Janie (Christine Woods) who tells Ryan they "need to talk".
Ryan freaks out in true Chandler fashion. Lauren suggests to Ryan that this kind of thing is normal for those who've suffered loss and encourages him to be more open to the experience the next time it happens.
When it does happen again her only message to Ryan is to stop eating spoiled food and go grocery shopping and after he does that then they'll talk again. At the grocery store Ryan finds himself in very unfamiliar territory so he decides to stalk a fellow bachelor purchasing all the things he purchases. Later that evening Janie appears again but refuses to tell Ryan why she's there. That night when Ryan can't sleep he cooks a huge turkey (bravo dude, seriously) and in the morning Janie appears and gives him a verbal pat on the back and Ryan realizes the purpose of her visit was to tell him he needs to take care of himself and move on.
At work Ryan finds out Steven and his longtime girlfriend broke up but Steven didn't bother to mention it because it's a minor thing compared to Ryan losing his wife. Ryan decides to him Steven get back on the proverbial horse and declares himself Stevens wingman. The two decide to try picking up a couple of women while trail walking but Ryan forgets to take off his wedding ring and things get delightfully awkward but the two manage to still get their numbers.
The group discovers that when Lauren isn't helping them she works a job as a lowly valet. Lauren explains that she’s working the valet job to help her get her Masters Degree, and that she's currently trying to get her real estate license but keeps failing the test.
The group then spends the remainder of the session wondering why Lauren can’t a better job. Mr. K bluntly (and hilariously) suggests that it's because Lauren is stupid. The next day Ryan visits Lauren at work and asks her if he can help. Lauren declines but the next day the rest of the group shows up to ask and Lauren accepts but unfortunately there special brand of test prep doesn't seem to help. Sonia's bit here made me LOL!!
The episode ends in a neat little bow with Steven and Ryan ditching their vapid dates to play Video games (Madden, Baby!!) and eat turkey then the next day the entire group shows up at Lauren's real estate test for moral support...and Lauren passes!
