Rob and Laura are hosting a small but important dinner party for four for one of the show's sponsors, Henry Bermont, and his wife Martha Bermont. The Bermonts are conservative old money, and Rob needs to keep them happy to ensure they remain sponsors. Unfortunately for Rob and Laura, one of their best friends from the army, Sol Pomeroy, unexpectedly stops by as he passes through the area for the weekend. Although they offer him a bed for the weekend, Rob really does not want Sol around at the dinner party since Sol and the Bermonts are like oil and water. Rob feels guilty about shunning one of his best friends, but knows he has to uninvite Sol to the dinner for the sake of his job. Rob's subtle attempts to uninvite Sol make matters even worse. Rob and Laura just have to hope that oil and water do mix on this one occasion. Written by
