For the two weeks Alan is away on vacation in Bermuda, British actor Tracy Rattigan will be filling in for him. Despite Tracy never having hosted a variety show, Rob, Buddy and Sally are eager to be working with him. Known as somewhat of a ladies' man with the nickname Racy Tracy, Sally in particular is anxious to meet him, but the one person Tracy seems interested in is Laura, who stops by the office specifically to meet him. Seeming to feign a previous engagement to get out of invitations from both Buddy and Sally, Tracy instead invites himself to Rob and Laura's house to kick around a few ideas for the show, which Rob takes to mean that he wants to get to know Laura better. Rob and Laura learn first hand how Tracy really got his nickname, but that understanding translates into a slightly different professional perspective for Rob, Buddy and Sally.
