New Idea: The Odd Couple - Pilot - S1E1

This idea is based on my idea to analyse every Friends episode.
In general the idea is to give you one episode per blogpost. In every blogpost I'll shortly describe what happens with the main characters of The Odd Couple in that certain episode. SPOILER
You can then play this in the game as you wish.
I don't know The Odd Couple as much by heart as Friends so I haven't written a main blogpost about it (yet).

General happenings season 1:
Sloven Oscar Madison (Matthew Perry) and the organised Felix Unger (Thomas Lennon), two friends from college, become roommates again after their wives leave them. Not long after they move in together, Oscar realises his mistake. Oscars assistent Dani and his lifelong agent Teddy have their hands full to keep Oscar on track while he's working as a sport radiohost, while worrying about his new living situation. Fortunately, there is the idiosyncratic neighbor Emily, who helps Felix to get used to his life as a single man and to keep his hosophobia (fear of dirt and germs) in control. Despite the fact that they sometimes make eachother crazy, they agree that after their divorce they can make something beautiful out of this absurd situation.
