The Sports Night crew prepares for an extra long day, due to a special early morning broadcast of mountain climber Desmond Corey's ascent of Mt. Everest. As the staffers track the climber's progress, a water main breaks due to the frigid temperatures outside. Due to the subsequent road closures, Dan (Josh Charles) and Casey (Peter Krause) are unable to get any food delivered to the studio. Dana (Felicity Huffman), after prepping the crew for the day's events, takes the afternoon off to go see The Lion King with her niece -- an activity she is not looking forward to, since her perceptions of Broadway musicals are based on her disliking of anything in the vein of Oklahoma! Upon viewing the performance, however, Dana returns to the studio proclaiming her newfound love for the magic of the theater. Meanwhile, Dan labors over which charity to donate his money to as Natalie (Sabrina Lloyd) and Jeremy (Joshua Malina) decide how to act professionally with one another now that they are beginning to fall in love.
