Mary is more than happy to accept a date with a gallant older man named Doug Booth, who walks into the newsroom. It isn't until Murray walks into the newsroom that Mary learns that Doug is his sixty-eight year old stepfather. After getting over the initial shock, Mary doesn't care about Doug being Murray's father or the fact that he is thirty years older than she is as she likes him and they have a good time together. However, others may care that Mary is dating a much older man, with Murray being at the top of that list. Murray makes his feelings well known at a party he and Marie are hosting at their house for Doug and his friends, while being in the company of Doug's friends makes Mary feel like the age difference may matter. She has to decide if she will let these outside forces dictate her relationship with Doug. Written by Huggo
