With Edie away visiting her sister, Lou is looking for someone to hang out with for the evening. To get out of hanging out with Ted, Lou agrees to a dinner and movie with Mary and Rhoda, who were going out anyway. At the movie theater, they run into Lou's favorite son-in-law, Bill Phelps, on a date with a woman named Patti Woods, who doesn't happen to be Lou's daughter and Bill's wife, Sarah. Beyond taking out his frustration and anger on the staff at the newsroom, Lou doesn't know what to do about the situation except avoid Bill and Sarah until he does. Bill ultimately stops by the newsroom to have a chat with Lou. Their discussion brings the situation into a clearer light and a better understanding between father-in-law and son-in-law.
