    President

    Back from a Wisconsin vacation to find Matthew has grown a mustache, Dave learns that Jimmy has decided to declare himself a candidate for President of the United States. Though Dave points out his lack of background for the office and Lisa insists she'll scrutinize him as much as any other candidate, Jimmy is still determined to run. And realizing an opportunity for advancement when they see one, Bill and Beth throw themselves behind Jimmy's quest. As Jimmy works to find the right slogan for his campaign, Dave suspects an ulterior motive behind his decision to run. However, when he and Lisa sit down with their boss for a friendly chat, they still cannot get to the reason for his candidacy. Meanwhile, after Jimmy produces up a disgusting old photo of himself sporting a mustache, the station's staff does their best to persuade Matthew him to shave. As Jimmy prepares to publicly announce his candidacy, Lisa reveals that she's uncovered enough personal information to nip his run for office in the bud. And while Dave warns against going too hard on their boss, Bill's questions during the press conference prompt Lisa to reveal what she's found. However, when it comes to discussing a running mate, Dave realizes that the presidential campaign is just one more attempt by Jimmy to find a wife. Finally, with Jimmy's scam exposed and his candidacy shelved, Matthew fails to find anyone other than Bill who'll give his mustache any respect.

    In the midst of the preparations for Jimmy's annual Halloween party, the station's staff is hit with a big surprise. Because of their previous unwillingness to actively participate, no one except Matthew has been invited this year. Upset with the slight, they turn to Dave for help. And though Dave isn't interested, Lisa guarantees Jimmy that the staff will be at the party in costume if invited. Meanwhile, the psychic hired for the party tells Bill exactly when he's going to die. When Lisa runs into trouble, she announces that Dave is going to wear an outrageous costume and gets everyone to change their minds about the party. Although Dave still has reservations about the idea, it's enough to convince Jimmy to invite everyone back. While finding getting in isn't going to be quite as easy as she thought, Lisa notices that Dave is wearing one of her dresses as his costume and is upset that he looks better in it than she does. But when he offers to change, she insists that it will only make things even worse. Knowing that he's going to die in another 35 years has Bill depressed about his future. In response to his own immortality, he arrives at the party with his elderly date, Dorothy. When he persists in thanking the psychic for her insights, Bill is told that she made a mistake and that he's destined to live much longer than originally thought. However, when the news causes him to dump his elderly date, Bill discovers too late that beneath Dorothy's costume is a young and attractive woman. Finally, Jimmy uses Dave and Lisa's eager-to-please attitude to get his party guests dancing.

    Movie Star

    To prepare for a new movie in which he plays a radio broadcaster, actor James Caan arrives to spend some time observing Bill. As one of his biggest fans, Matthew can't wait to get an autograph from the movie star. But Bill is certain that they will be much too busy to bother with Matthew's request. Meanwhile, as Beth and Catherine jockey for a ticket to join Jimmy to a big basketball game, Dave prepares to surprise Lisa with an unexpected birthday gift. While Bill is certain he'll want to understand what drives him to do his job, all Caan wants is to watch him at work. However, after meeting Matthew, he does take an interest in what it is that makes him so strange. Then, as Catherine and Beth are quizzed for the right to the basketball tickets, Dave unveils his present for Lisa...her first television set. But they quickly part ways over the question of the intelligence of TV viewers. As Bill tries getting him interested in the deeper meaning of being a radio announcer, James becomes fascinated with Matthew's unusual behavior. And once Bill accuses him of trying to steal the actor's attention, Matthew offers to go home to avoid being a distraction, but only after nervously getting an autograph. Meanwhile, when Lisa discovers there's a channel that carries congressional hearings 24-hours a day, she immediately decides that she wants a television. And when Jimmy offers to buy an extra ticket so he can take them both, Catherine and Beth have second thoughts after seeing just how big a fan he really is.

Meanwhile, when Bill needs a partner to record a commercial audition tape, Beth agrees to help.

As Lisa continues to struggle with precocious children in the nation's capitol, Dave loses his patience with the upstairs neighbors, too. But when he goes to complain, he's embarrassed to see that the noise is being made by a wheelchair. Yet, once Dave sheepishly retreats, the wheelchair-bound man resumes a noisy basketball game. Finally, as Dave implores him not to seek revenge, Joe finds himself a victim when one of his own pranks is rigged to backfire.
