Rob and Laura learn from their accountant that they'll have to cut some corners and penny-pinch for the next little while until their financial situation improves. Despite Rob making a half-decent living, he is dismayed, feeling he should be able to provide a more comfortable standard of living for Laura and Ritchie. Rob's dismay changes to paranoia, persecution, insecurity, fear and envy when he runs into Jim Darling, the show's new wealthy and good-looking sponsor, who also happens to be Laura's old beau. Rob fears that if Laura sees Jim again she may decide she made the wrong choice in who she married; so, Rob does whatever he can to hide the fact of Jim reentering his life, especially when Jim wants to host a cocktail party for the show's staff and their spouses while he's in town and especially wants to see Laura. Laura eventually finds out but may regret the party after seeing Rob and Jim together. Written by
