*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Eve goes to Herb's office for lunch only to find his secretary is ill. Eve takes over for her despite being away from work for 20 years and his concerns about her taking the job. Then, Kay stops at the office and Herb needs another temp. Kay decides to step in.

From here Herb's office becomes a three ring circus akin to Lucy & Ethel taking over though even worse. Everybody seems to want to spend time at Herb's office while Herb has an important deal brewing which could be messed up.

This is a good episode as the situations at the office seem to get funnier and funnier and then somehow Herb pulls off the important deal despite all the distractions around his office.
