The Sports Night crew is ecstatic over landing an interview with basketball legend Michael Jordan until the strict terms of the interview laid out by the Jordan camp are revealed. The hoops superstar's intentions are to only discuss his new line of cologne and no sports questions are to be allowed, while total editorial control is to be passed onto Jordan's representatives. Dana (Felicity Huffman), Isaac (Robert Guillaume), and returned ratings expert Sam Donovan (William H. Macy) firmly refuse the terms and the interview. While negotiating the terms of the interview, Sam makes the acquaintance of Dana's longtime rival Sally (Brenda Strong), who casually proceeds to dump her sexual history onto the disinterested ratings guru. Meanwhile, Casey (Peter Krause) is worried about an upcoming visit he is to make to his son Charlie's classroom. As he scrambles to prepare some sort of presentation, Casey also begins to notice that Sam and Dana are working together much more compatibly than they used to.
