Storyline

Idealist Heather is tickled pink she can work for this year's Earth Day regional committee, and presents her hand-picked stand-in: Robbie, who keeps doing bar evening shifts at the same time. Alas his social skills aren't matched by secretarial ones; dad doesn't have the heart to fire him, but sets a crafty hamster trap... Syd was excited that a New York med school reunion offers her another chance with hunky bachelor Eric, who even sent her flowers, but is preoccupied by lying patient Talia, whose baby needs a blood transfusion from her haughty black single father Marcus Weber, who refuses unless Talia dumps her charming white mate Jake, the baby's loving dad... Doug has a great innovating idea, the aromatic pet mating collar in functional colors, but promises his boss a prototype demonstration without having tested anything, Joanie helps while instincts don't. Actually his success comes at a surprising price... Written by KGF Vissers
