Rob has been called in for jury duty. Rob is somewhat relishing the prospect if only to get out from writing this week's script, which is causing a bit of a problem. The trial for which he is called to duty as jury foreman is the case of Marla Hendrix, a beautiful but not so bright ex-exotic dancer accused of diamond smuggling. Rob is taken to her as a woman, which is obvious to all those in the courtroom, including Laura, of whose presence Rob is unaware. She thinks that he should resign from the jury as she feels he is no longer impartial, but Rob soldiers on with his civic duty, much to the dismay of eleven other jurors who disagree with his vote of innocence. Will he be able to convince the others of her innocence and that he's not in love with her?
