Synopsis by Ryan Shriver
Due to a tennis match running very late, the Sports Night show has been put on hold pending the match's conclusion. For Dana (Felicity Huffman), this holds greater significance as she is supposed to meet Gordon (Ted McGinley) later in the evening -- after the show was supposed to air. Dan (Josh Charles), in the meantime, begins to sense that Casey (Peter Krause) is aggravated over something, but Casey refuses to come clean. Soon Dan is working on his own problems when Rebecca (Teri Polo) -- while waiting in Dan's office -- takes a call from a woman that Dan had supposedly broken up with some time ago. When Gordon shows up, he learns the show hasn't even started yet and promptly issues Dana an ultimatum: Hand the show off to someone else or the relationship is over. As Casey sees Gordon being introduced to Sally by Dana, he shuts the office door and reveals his knowledge of Gordon's affair with Sally to Dan -- and that he is powerless to do anything about it, since Dana would also learn of Casey's dalliance with Sally in the process.
