With the same night off, Dana (Felicity Huffman) and Casey (Peter Krause) find themselves locked into a double date arrangement that both would rather not happen -- as Casey is just afraid to go on any dates at all while Dana thinks a double date with Casey is a recipe for disaster. Dana's boyfriend Gordon (Ted McGinley) hooks Casey up on a blind date with one of the lawyers he works with and the quartet heads to the restaurant, where Dana begins to obsess about the show she's missing while drinking herself silly as Casey begins babbling incoherently with his date. Back in the studio, Natalie (Sabrina Lloyd) is in the midst of her first solo run of the show, which proceeds routinely until she scoops an unconfirmed report of a last-minute trade. While still corroborating the story, she has Dan (Josh Charles) announce the still-unconfirmed rumor on-air, which raises red flags with Isaac (Robert Guillaume) and Jeremy (Joshua Malina) who seriously question the decision. Dan has different problems on his hands as he is forced to deal with Casey's substitute, Bobbi Bernstein (Lisa Edelstein), and her claims of having slept with Dan years before while both were in Spain.
