Ted goes through a series of emotions about the news that his mother is getting remarried to a man named Walter Tewksbury. He is initially excited at the prospect of having a new father, something he's never really had in his life. Then he begins to feel overwrought, not really realizing that this feeling is from the belief that he is losing his mother to another man. Next, he feels stressed at making the necessary arrangements for the wedding. But on a subsequent piece of news from his mother, Ted feels ashamed. That news is that she and Walter have decided not to get married, but solely to live together in sin. On Lou's advice, Ted decides he needs to have a man-to-man talk with Walter to know what is truly in Walter's heart toward his mother. Meanwhile, everyone in the newsroom tries to fill in her responsibilities while Mary is on vacation in Mexico. Written by
