    Shrink

    Faced with an abysmal mood at the office, Dave does his best to cheer everyone up. But Catherine and Beth are in mood to listen to anyone, while Matthew is arguing with Joe. Yet nothing can top Bill's decision to build a cubicle around his desk for privacy. Jimmy thinks the time is right to call in a popular therapist who has counseled them in the past. But Dave is sure he can handle it with a staff meeting. When the meeting is a dismal failure, Dave discovers his staff would welcome a visit by the ever-popular Dr. Frank Westford. And when he arrives to the staff's warm welcome, even Bill is more than willing to respond to the affable therapist. Though Lisa suggests some therapy may help him, too, Dave is concerned to learn Dr. Frank was her college psychology professor. But it's not until their session is getting underway that he's told of their student-teacher affair. Even after seeing how much he's helped the staff, Dave continues to balk at a session of his own. Yet once Dr. Frank lures him into conversation, Dave suddenly realizes the value of therapy, too. However, it's Dr. Frank who finds himself on the couch when, as he's questioned by Dave about the relationship with Lisa, he admits to having an incurable addiction to sex. Finally, despite their suggestion that he tear down the walls of his cubicle, a look inside convinces Dave and Dr. Frank that Bill needs a little more time.

    Friends

    When Dave hires someone to help with a backlog of filing, Beth couldn't be happier -- until she learns the temp is her childhood friend, Sandi Angelini. In a private moment, Beth complains that Sandi used to copy everything she did, from her hairstyles and mannerisms, to stealing a boyfriend. Lisa and Dave think she's just being paranoid, so Beth suggests an experiment which could prove her claim. Meanwhile, after leaving his identification card at his desk, Bill is denied entry by a pair of the building's security guards. To prove her point, Beth suggests to Sandi that she is romantically interested in Matthew. As predicted, Sandi then makes an obvious pass at him as well. And while Matthew isn't sure what to make of all the attention, Dave and Lisa see that Beth was right. Meanwhile, as the security guards continue to foil Bill's attempts to sneak inside, Catherine decides to have some fun by getting into the act, too. Disgusted by Sandi's flirtatious behavior, Beth ups the ante in her little game by giving Matthew a big kiss. So Matthew seeks Lisa's advice on how to handle the two women who seem to be in love with him. But when Beth decides to put an end to the charade and confronts her about the mimicry, Sandi finally admits she only did it out of envy and admiration. Upon making up, they each let Matthew down gently with some help from Dave, while Bill recovers his ID for the benefit of the guards, only to discover it's expired.

    Bill's Autobiography

    When Bill's slightly shady agent drops by the station, Dave learns that the star newscaster is writing an autobiography. And though Bill asks that the book be kept under wraps for now, Dave mentions it to Lisa and the news soon spreads throughout the office. As a result, Bill is forced to admit in confidence that he has written virtually nothing after three months of work. News of Bill's writer's block leads the staff to offer all kinds of suggestions. And though Bill doesn't find them at all helpful, Dave does find the staff's preoccupation with Bill's problem to be a distraction. Yet, even though Bill does his best to keep up appearances, he finally concludes that he's a bore with nothing of interest to say about himself to anyone. After flirting with the idea of suicide, Bill concludes that seeing him fail is just what everyone has been waiting for. So Dave enlists the rest of the staff to boost Bill's confidence. Only then, Bill realizes that Dave isn't the only one who knows about his problem. Finally, after Bill agrees to give up on the project, Dave helps him save face by insisting his own refusal to sign a release has kept the book from being written.

    Though Dave is pleased with the results, Bill is unhappy with a new promotional spot they've recorded for the station. But upon seeking Jimmy's advice, they find themselves in the midst of a non-stop editing session to produce one upon which everyone can agree. Meanwhile, Matthew proposes that everyone go together on a summer house in the Hamptons, and Joe turns to Lisa for help studying for an important certification exam. As Jimmy, Dave and Bill struggle to agree on a new spot, Beth inquires about subletting her share of the summer home. While Matthew is quick to encourage her idea, Catherine makes it clear that she doesn't want to spend her summer weekends with a bunch of strangers, not to mention one with Bill running around in a skimpy bathing suit. Meanwhile, Beth pitches in to help Joe prepare for his exam. As a condition of Lisa's participation, Matthew guarantees that she and Dave will be scheduled to use the summer house on alternate weekends. Yet, Dave's hoping to use the house as a chance to revive their relationship and wants to be scheduled on the same weekends. Once it becomes clear that Matthew has been less than honest with them, the staff sells their shares in the house to anyone they can find. Finally, after a long day of editing produces a very, very brief promo, Joe gets a passing grade, but only after saving his professor from a stalled elevator.
