To help Judy land a promotion, Bill schmoozes her boss, Dr. Nathan Gerber, by falsely sharing in the doctor's love of opera. When a schedule conflict prevents the doctor from enjoying his Friday night tickets to an upcoming opera, he happily passes them along to Judy and Bill, which Bill almost immediately exchanges for choice Friday night hockey tickets. The doctor subsequently asks them to report back on their opera experience, so Bill and Judy suffer through a Thursday night performance so they can report back accurately and not endanger her chance for the promotion. When the doctor's schedule conflict resolves itself and he asks for the tickets back, Bill and Judy scramble for how to get out of this one. Meanwhile, Linda chaperons Lauren's slumber party but ends up dominating it with bitter adult issues.
