In the fourth season premiere episode, Molly finds herself at a crossroads with her career and makes a huge decision to give up her job teaching elementary school to follow her dreams of becoming a writer. The Office's BRIAN BAUMGARTNER guest stars as Molly's union rep, Mr. Wisney.
Molly meets her literary idol, J.C. Small (guest star SUSAN SARANDON), a cynic who advises her to write about things in her life that she wouldn't want people to know. Meanwhile, Mike invites his mother over for dinner in an effort to cheer her up.
Molly believes her suspicious next-door neighbor is up to no good and recruits Joyce to help her spy on him. Meanwhile, the guys get together for a poker game and end up sharing their dreams and aspirations.
