The writers slipped on this episode.

With the Mayor out of town, Mike has been put in charge of negotiating
with the local doormen on a new contract. Mike is trying to prove, to
everyone, that he could possible be a candidate for mayor if Randall
Winston gets elected to the Senate. But he will find that there is more
to being mayor than just knowing the job.
Also Paul, with his game show winnings, has opened up a new restaurant
with a political theme. Since he has no idea about how to run a
business it will be a miracle if things are successful.
One of the better plots has Stuart's girlfriend, Deidre, and Caitlin
having a little run-in at City Hall. After some exchange of words,
Deidre starts getting under Caitlin's skin. Things are going to be
strange at work.
The Deidre story could have been great yet very little time was spent
on the situation and it ended even quicker than it began. There was
much potential with the two female co-workers but the writers did not
take a chance and used it more as a filler for time rather than a
This episode has some good moments but they were few and far between.
The story with Paul was known before it began and turned into more of a
dull-fest than anything amusing. Plus, the doorman story also fell flat
as it just did not cause any interest in the show. The writers had a
good story with Deidre and Caitlin and let it slip through their
fingers. A disappointing adventure.
