Episode cast overview:
Pat Priest ...
Lila Nivens


Sue Ann's Augusta, Georgia based younger sister, Lila, who hosts a show much like Sue Ann's, is coming to Minneapolis for a vacation just in time for Sue Ann's birthday. Despite not seeing Lila very often, Sue Ann doesn't see Lila's visit as much of a present, as Sue Ann has always considered her a rival. Lila's trip gets even worse for Sue Ann when Lila and Lou hit it off. But the icing on the "Lila" cake for Sue Ann is that she is offered a job hosting a show similar to hers on a rival Minneapolis network. Mary takes it upon herself to rally Sue Ann's newsroom friends to cheers her up about her life and the fact that she is just as loved as Lila, despite Sue Ann not ever really making it easy for them.
