Ted (Scott Lowell) has his gay porn website, "Jerkatwork.net," up and running. While it's just live streaming video of guys pleasuring themselves, Ted naturally thought to include a "boss screen" to protect those who visit the site while they should be working. Michael (Hal Sparks) has a lot of work to do to get the comic store running smoothly, but Emmett (Peter Paige), Deb (Sharon Gless), and Vic (Jack Wetherall) are all pitching in. Michael also meets Ben (Robert Gant), a handsome professor from Carnegie Mellon who's looking for comic books with a gay subtext. When he discovers what an expert Michael is on the subject, he invites him to give a lecture to his class. Michael has many qualms about giving the lecture, but he's certainly attracted to Ben. Justin (Randy Harrison) convinces the art school to let him stay on by showing the dean some of his new work, created with the assistance of a computer. Justin and Brian (Gale Harold) are behaving more and more like a couple, but the rest of the gang don't expect that to last. Sure enough, their relationship is tested when Justin comes home to find Brian in bed with another guy. Ted turns to Emmett for help when his main "performer" quits suddenly due to Ted's miserly ways. Emmett turns out to have a surprising talent. Lindsay (Thea Gill) lets Mel (Michelle Clunie) know she's disgusted with Ted's newfound career, prompting Mel to reveal a secret about her own past.
