Storyline

Rhoda has been run off her feet at work since it is the Halloween season. She asks Brenda is she'd like to moonlight at Doyle's temporarily as an order clerk to help them get over the Halloween rush, which Brenda gratefully declines. Ida, however, thinks she knows the perfect person for the job: herself. Ida needs the money to buy Martin a gift, and she has the time. Rhoda thinks it's a terrible idea if only because Ida and Jack hate each other. Although Ida guilts Rhoda into asking Jack for her, Rhoda doesn't. So Ida decides to ask Jack himself. Surprisingly, Jack does hire Ida if only because he thinks she'd make a good clerk despite their mutual dislike. Ida, who does things her own way, ends up quietly irritating Rhoda at work, whereas Jack ends up loving Ida, so much so that he wants to offer her a full time job. Rhoda, for which working with her mother full time would be her worst nightmare, examines her true feelings on why. Written by Huggo
