Three weeks into her parent's move to Minneapolis, Mary notices that her mother, Dottie, is adjusting to life in the big city, but that her father, Walter, is not adjusting not only to life in the big city but not adjusting to his life as a retired surgeon. He has yet to make any friends and is doing things out of the ordinary just to keep busy. Mary thinks that things will change once he does meet some people he can call his own friends, and she tries to help that process along. But after a somewhat disastrous lunch with her two favorite men in the world - Walter and Lou - Mary thinks that before her father should meet new people, she should become a better friend to him.
