Storyline

Since it's been a while since they've done one, Lou wants to do a location feature. After brainstorming with Mary, Murray and Ted, Lou decides on Murray's idea of life at a popular single's bar called Valentino's. Lou's plan is to send Mary and Murray to the bar to do some undercover reconnaissance at Valentino's for a week before sending in a live television crew to give the piece an off the cuff feel. Since Marie feels uncomfortable about Murray frequenting such a bar, even for work, Lou reluctantly agrees to let Mary do the recon visits on her own... sort of. But after those visits, meeting the regular patrons, hearing their stories and experiencing how a single person acts and is acted upon at the bar, Mary and company still don't have a fresh angle for the piece. They decide to let the regular patrons tell their own stories on the air, just hoping that they will have something insightful to say. By the end, they solely hope the regular patrons have anything to say. Written by Huggo
