Donald is writing an article on the revolutionary new work of psychiatrist Dr. Enrico Cesana. Much of Dr. Cesana's work revolves around interpretation of ink blots. Donald gets into a bit of hot water when Ann gives her interpretation of one of those ink blots, Ann's interpretation which, according to Donald based on the manual provided, means that she is stubborn, opinionated and quick to jump to conclusions. What gets him into more hot water with Ann is that he agrees with what the manual says about her, and further that his interpretation of another ink blot means that he is kind and considerate, making them fundamentally incompatible. Jerry and Ruthie get in on the ink blot interpretation act, which results in Ann and Ruthie not wanting to talk to Donald and wanting to break up with their respective partner because of that incompatibility. Only Dr. Cesana in the flesh and not just the manual may be able to solve the Ann-Donald-Ruthie-Jerry relationship problems. Written by
