Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Left suddenly in the lurch when Darlene (Linda Doucett) leaves for a vacation, an overwhelmed Hank (Jeffrey Tambor) reluctantly takes Paula's (Janeane Garofalo) advice and hires a temporary assistant. A work dynamo, Brian (Scott Thompson) turns out to be just the kind of assistant Hank has been looking for, providing a well-timed permanent solution when Hank receives word that Darlene isn't coming back to the show. Meanwhile, Larry (Garry Shandling) begrudgingly permits Dana Carvey to perform an impression of him on the air. When Hank find out that Brian is gay, his sunshine and roses view of the workhorse assistant is suddenly dampened.
