Mary receives a telephone call from Tom Vernon, an old flame who is in town for a short visit. Mary has mixed feelings about Tom's call: she was in love with him and still may very well be, but was always frustrated in their relationship as he didn't seem to be there for her as much as she wanted which left her angry after their dates, but pining for his calls after that anger subsided. After to-ing and fro-ing, Mary decides to see Tom. Their reunion brings back all those old feelings, both the good and bad which haven't changed. Conversely, Tom still too seems to be in love with her. But if things haven't changed, Mary has to decide if they have any future. Meanwhile, Ted has a business trip to Washington D.C., where he expects to be able to interview the President. Written by
