  • At the airport, Tom and Trina Decker bump into her Manhattan high-school lover, gorgeous, obscenely rich Luke. Tom plays by the open marriage rules, even offers a threesome, which Luke accepts, but is clearly atypically insecure about her rekindled youth sentiment. Bruce is delighted when Susan is finally invited to join his boss's wife Rita Pierce's children's hospital charity fund-raising committee, but she feels at odds. Janet eagerly came along and takes to the socialites pack like a duck to water, aiming at the country club. Roger however took her advice to ask for promotion after 12 years as top insurance salesman, but is 'let go', yet won't spoil his wife's gala triumph they can ill afford anymore. Laurie messes up her oral philosophy exam by lack of authentic self-expression but cares only for Doug Stephens's confirmation an affair is no longer inappropriate now summer school is over.
