With the NFL draft looming, Dana (Felicity Huffman) and Casey (Peter Krause) make bets about its outcome -- which fuels their already antagonistic relationship. The rest of the staff are excited about the possibility of covering the draft, which depends on whether it rains or not in Indian Wells. Dan (Josh Charles), who has long been struggling with many and sundry issues, still holds some residual jealousy toward Casey and his inclusion on the infamous Influential People in Sports list -- which causes some friction between the longtime friends. Also, he is forced to cancel a round of golf with pro golfer David Duval due to the constraints of his job. As a result, Dan develops a disgruntled attitude at work that starts to interfere with his job performance. Meanwhile, Jeremy (Joshua Malina) is struggling to come to terms with the fact he's dating a porn star. While eager to tell everyone -- particularly his ex-girlfriend Natalie (Sabrina Lloyd) -- about Jenny, he is still unable to tell everyone what she really does for a living.
