"The Wingman" is the sixth episode in the sixth season of Schitt's Creek. It is the seventy-second episode overall.
Bob has been staying with Ronnie ever since he and Gwen broke up. Needing a little relief, Ronnie tries to foist Bob off on someone else. Johnny thinks he has a better idea: he, Ronnie and Roland should act as Bob's wing-people in taking Bob out to the bar to meet women. Beyond actually getting Bob out, the three wing-people may face the additional hurdle of deciding on the approach to take in their assigned collective role. Meanwhile, the video of the Crows film premiere in Schitt's Creek has gone viral online, it being portrayed as one genius orchestrated publicity stunt. In addition to giving the movie a boost, it also has the unintended consequence of giving Alexis a profile as the next big thing in the PR game. Alexis has to decide what to do between capitalizing on what opportunities may arise from the video, and her commitment to Ted, her planned trip to the Galapagos which is a month later than originally scheduled already. And it isn't until it arrives that Patrick and David discover that who Patrick bought a custom made coffee table from is Jake, David's one-time love interest. Jake's nature as being overtly amorous and affectionate to anything with two legs extends to Patrick. David and Patrick have to decide what to do about Jake's offer for the two of them to come over to his place for "a whiskey".
