Plot Synopsis

While buying holiday gifts, Grace schemes to fix up the giggling mistress of Will's father with a friend as a favor to Will in hopes that she will abandon his old man — but the scheme dreadfully backfires when they are forced to press a gay friend into service as a date at the last minute. Meanwhile, Jack and Karen have no horse sense when they buy a nag for breeding and expect a financial windfall.
