Shelly (Cynthia Geary) wants Holling (John Cullum) to be circumcised, but he balks until she blithely informs him that she has never yet met a man who hasn't made "the cut." Meanwhile, Maggie (Janine Turner) tries to make a good impression on her visiting father (John McCann) by persuading Joel (Rob Morrow) to pose as her boyfriend. And the townsfolk wonder how best to handle the body of an unidentified man who dropped dead in Joel's office, leaving behind nothing but a mass of tantalizing mysteries. Chris (John Corbett) best sums up the week's events with a philosophical "Vani tass, vani tatuum, et omni I vant tass" (easy for him to say!).
