Sally is staying temporarily with Rhoda while work is being done on her own apartment. During this stay, Sally receives a visit at Rhoda's from her airline pilot ex-husband, Lloyd Zimmer, the two who got divorced because of his philandering despite the fact that Sally sees him as a descent guy otherwise. Lloyd, who philandered in part to overcome his insecurity of being short, comes bearing news: he is getting remarried, and he wants Sally's blessing... to reduce his alimony to her on fiancée Cissy's wants. In discussing the issue with Rhoda and Brenda, Sally has mixed emotions about the situation. She can screw Lloyd by not giving in to his request. But if she does agree, she will never have to deal with Lloyd ever again. Sally decides what she is going to do, but, as a gesture, decides to have a dinner with Lloyd and Cissy together. After meeting Cissy, Sally changes her mind about what she is going to do, which affects Lloyd in more ways than one.
