As a cold snap has hit Minneapolis, everyone in the newsroom is vying to be Lou's business companion to the broadcaster's convention in sunny, warm Hollywood. In reality, Lou has two extra tickets which he plans to give to Mary and Murray. Forgetting that he promised Ted the next freebie being offered through the station, Lou gives up his ticket to Ted, much to Mary and Murray's dismay. At the convention, Mary, Murray and Ted meet the beautiful Whitney Lewis, a Los Angeles based freelance journalist who wants to interview them for a story on putting on local television news. After meeting Whitney, Murray is incredulous at Ted's belief that Whitney is after Ted. What Ted later finds out direct from Whitney's mouth is that he's right about Whitney's intentions toward him. Although he loves Georgette, Ted has to decide if a one time shot at a woman like Whitney is worth risking his marriage.
