Maurice ponders the influence of time when he buys a unique but very expensive mechanical clock, which, he's disappointed to learn, looks wonderful but doesn't keep perfect time. Meanwhile, Chris Stevens becomes an influence of a different kind when he runs over a dog and falls in love with the owner, a pet-loving mathematician. He fears the relationship may not last, though, when he also kills one of her birds and finds himself allergic to cats.
