A preoccupied Buddy Sorrell begins begging off early from work and making surreptitious phone calls from the office, making co-writers Sally and Rob wonder what's going on. When Buddy again says he needs off early to go to his mother's place in Brooklyn, Sally thereafter spots him in Manhattan. On the phone, Rob talks with Buddy's wife Pickles, who believes he's at his mom's, too. Rob and Sally speculate whether Buddy's seeing a psychiatrist about his sour marriage or pushing Pickles to the side for a sweetheart. Written by David Stevens
