Storyline

After refusing to host Ted and Georgette's first wedding anniversary party, Mary decides to throw a party anyway when one of the news' guests, Congresswoman Margaret Geddes, asks her to host a small dinner for her visiting friend, Johnny Carson to get him away from the throngs of fans sure to bother him at a restaurant. Mary is sure that this party will be a success, unlike most of her parties, which are usually disasters. She, however, refuses to tell anyone the nature of the party beyond the fact that a celebrity will be attending, that is until Johnny's imminent arrival. Before the Congresswoman and Johnny arrive, Mary's guests reminisce about the throng of lousy parties she's thrown. With Johnny attending, is there any way this party can be the worst of them all?
