Sunday at Ruxin's is the 3rd episode of Season One.
|I've taken dumps before. It's fun. You take a picture of it, you send it out to your friends. You don't pick it up and whip it around your head like a churro!|

|Kevin is preparing to watch football at a bar, when his daughter, Ellie, runs up with a handful of her own feces, which she retrieved from the toilet and is proudly carrying around. Kevin is alarmed but Jenny tells him it's just a phase she's going through called "Fun with Feces."
Pete complains that one of his players, LaDainian Tomlinson, is listed as "questionable" and he doesn't know if he should play him. Kevin runs into Andre, who appears nervous and scurries off. Andre has secretly joined another league, one where he is treated with respect and admiration by the other members; he is the Alpha-Male of this league instead of the whipping boy.
Pete tries repeatedly to get Terry Brawshaw on the phone to find out the status of L.T.. He eventually gets Bradshaw on the phone by pretending to be his uncle. Bradshaw quickly realizes it's a ruse, but tells Pete L.T. will definitely play on Sunday.
Everyone arrives at Ruxin's, where they are instructed to apply antibacterial lotion before viewing Ruxin and Sofia's baby, Baby Geoffrey. Taco spends the afternoon helping Sofia, and flirting with her, in the kitchen while Ruxin keeps an eye on them. Kevin and Jenny are angered the Ruxin named their dog Kale, which Kevin and Jenny were doing to name their next child.
Pete asks Ruxin if it bothers him that Taco is spending so much time with Sofia. Ruxin compares the situation to horse breeding, where a lesser horse will be brought in to excite the mare before she breeds with the real stallion. Meanwhile, Andre is confronted by Pete and Kevin about Andre's other league, and the two promise to be more respectful to Andre's feelings out of fear of losing him for good.
Everyone is dismayed to discover they have to eat lunch in Ruxin's dining room, where they won't be able to watch the football games. Everyone eats as fast as possible so they can return to watching football, but there are several courses and tempers begin to flare. After Pete and Kevin demonstrate some compassion for Andre's sensitive teeth, Andre decides to break up with his other league.
After lunch, they resume watching TV, and see a broadcast of Terry Bradshaw, who reveals that L.T. will not be starting the game after all. Bradshaw calls Pete and rubs it in, and Pete declares Bradshaw is his new mortal enemy. Andre, having beaten Pete in their matchup, tries out some lines from his slam-list.
Outside, Ellie picks up some of the dog's poop and deposits it into Ruxin's baby's crib, getting them all kicked out of Ruxin's house. Andre realizes he made the right choice to stay with the league.
Andre: I'm Jamie Lee Curtis. You're Lindsey Lohan. I'm cool. You're not.
Pete: You're the glue that holds the whole group together. You're the centerpiece.
Kevin: Exactly.You're like the honeydew in a fruit salad. You know? Nobody likes the honeydew. But you need it there 'cause it fills up space.
Ruxin: Who was that?
Pete: That's my new mortal enemy.
Kevin: The dude deep-dickin' Meegan?
Ruxin: Scintillating dinner conversation?
Ruxin: You know who has fun with feces? Psychopaths.
