Both Murray and Ted vie for the one spot the news team has for the weekend broadcaster's convention in Chicago. To their dismay, Lou plans to go himself, that is until he learns that Sue Ann is also going, she who wants to spend all their time together. To get out from Sue Ann's lair, Lou, on the spur of the moment, decides to send Mary instead. Although angry with Mary at first since she won't be able to spend that much anticipated time with Lou, Sue Ann instead wants to be joined at the hip with Mary in Chicago, which is the furthest thing from Mary's mind. What Sue Ann also seems to want is to "have a good time" and to be the center of attention among her old Chicago colleagues, or if that doesn't work out, then with any other male conventioneers who are also out to have a good time. What happens that weekend shows why Sue Ann is so desperate to be in the middle of all the fun. Written by Huggo
