When Malory invites her ISIS drones to a dinner party at her home, there has to be a catch. And there is a catch: Malory wants the U.N. contract from stuffy Torvald Utne, the guest of honour. Everyone but Archer shows up with a date, including sensual "Carina," squired by Woodhouse. Malory bans Archer's "hoors," who Malory claims always pilfer her medicine cabinet. Utne is bored and repelled by the ISIS crew until Archer hits an ATM machine and returns with a blond, willowy bag of eye candy. Malory has two murderous Huns in her kitchen, supposedly helping her hatch her plot. But nobody expected "The Needle." When Archer goes for the baby aspirin and ends up talking to Tiny Man, he wonders if Malory switched the aspirin for LSD. It all turns into a team-building project: if eating Longpig is the only other alternative, the remaining dinner guests are happy to help Malory's neighbour redecorate. It's win-lose-lose: except for Trudy Beekman! Written by LA-Lawyer
