Storyline

On receiving a $6,000 tax refund, Ted seems a changed man. The usually frugal Ted is lavishing his friends with expensive gifts, stating that they are tokens of his appreciation for their friendship, especially as he realizes that he is an imperfect person. His happiness and his new outlook on life changes when he receives notice that he is being audited. He is hoping that his friends will help him in any way they can, meaning that he wants them to lie for him about business deductions he made that weren't legitimate. Mary in particular wants to help Ted, but she, like the others, won't lie for him. So they all anxiously await the results of his audit. Meanwhile, Mary is having problems hooking up her new stereo system, something the salesman told her any fool could do. Written by Huggo

Ted Baxter receives a 6,000 dollar tax refund. It is way more than he has ever received before. After buying some extravagant gifts, he finds out he is going to be audited. It's panic city and he expects his colleagues to lie for him about lunches and other deductions. While they feel some sympathy for Ted, he makes so much more that anyone in the station. They also know what a skinflint he is. The IRS guy shows up at the station and they listen to Ted weeping and moaning in Lou's office as the adding machine goes on and on. It's as if they were waiting to find out how someone's surgery is going.
