Synopsis by Ryan Shriver
Dan (Josh Charles) learns of an upcoming Tom Waits concert and desperately pleads with Casey (Peter Krause) to switch nights off with him. Casey reluctantly agrees if Dan can talk Natalie (Sabrina Lloyd) into going clothes shopping with him. Natalie, in turn, will go shopping with Casey if Dan can find a way to get hers and Jeremy's (Joshua Malina) names on the list of a very popular and exclusive nightclub. After informing Jeremy about her plans to go the club, Natalie and Jeremy get into a disagreement that eventually takes an unexpected and painful detour. Meanwhile, last-minute substitute Steve Sarris (Cress Williams) begins to have an on-air breakdown as he frantically attempts to convince his girlfriend not to break up with him. After Dana (Felicity Huffman) takes Steve off air and sends him packing, she finds Sam (William H. Macy) in her office ogling a Revolutionary War musket left to her by her uncle that she had been considering destroying, due to her staunch anti-gun beliefs. While Sam tells her a little more about her newly acquired artifact, Dana begins to feel some affection toward the curmudgeon ratings guru -- who seems to feel the same way about her.
