Despite head writer Phil's (Wallace Langham) claims that female comics aren't funny, Artie (Rip Torn) and Larry (Garry Shandling) hire Wendy Traston (Sarah Silverman) on as a new writer. When Phil purposefully fails to submit Wendy's jokes for Larry's monologue, Beverly (Penny Johnson) takes it upon herself to get the jokes to Larry. Catching wind of the writers' conflict, Artie threatens to fire both Phil and Wendy if they don't resolve their differences and get Larry the monologue in a timely fashion. Meanwhile, Hank (Jeffrey Tambor) gets so suspicious that Kevin Nealon is trying to steal his position as sidekick that he begins displaying symptoms of a heart attack.
