Mary's former boyfriend and Chuckles the Clown's ex-writer Wes Callison stops by the newsroom. After quitting the writing job for Chuckles and trying to find himself, he returns applying for a recently vacated writing job in the newsroom. Although Mary and Wes' relationship was never serious - at least on Mary's side - Mary feels she has to put in a good word for Wes (despite not thinking deep in her heart that he's right for the job) since she feels guilty about the wayward way of Wes' life. She secretly fears that Wes still has feelings for her, which she knows she will never return in kind. It ends up being worse as Wes begins to smother her, she who doesn't have the heart to tell him so. She feels he's only doing it because of lack of confidence in himself, and as a result this need to feel miserable. Despite doing a good job at work, Wes also faces other issues with Chuckles, who, in turn, is smothering Wes with informal request after informal request to help him write his show. Written by Huggo
