An excited Phyllis has just received her real estate license. As she is advised by the profession, and as most people starting in their own business do, Phyllis turns to her friends and acquaintances as her first points of contact. To her, the obvious person is newly separated Lou, who probably no longer needs to live in such a big house by himself. Despite Mary not wanting Phyllis to "pounce" on all her work colleagues, Phyllis approaches Lou, who, after an initial hesitation, agrees to have Phyllis sell his house. Beyond the lookie loos such as Ted (who had never been in Lou's house), Phyllis does manage to find some serious buyers, who offer Lou's asking price. After he agrees to the sale, Lou begins to have second thoughts. Mary acts as his voice of reason on the issue. Meanwhile, Mary has been receiving obscene telephone calls. And the newsroom is one of several offices in the building that is burglarized. Written by Huggo
