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
