As she feels it's a little early in their marriage, Rhoda doesn't yet want to tell Joe that she's thinks she may be pregnant as she's two weeks late. Needing to tell someone, she unburdens her thoughts on Brenda, who can understand Rhoda's anxiety but who also selfishly wants to be an aunt. Eventually, Rhoda decides to tell Joe. Joe, in turn, also wants to be honest and tells Rhoda his news: that his business is going through a rough patch financially. Thus their news in combination may not be good timing. Regardless, they want to be true in their feelings about Rhoda's news, which they find is difficult as a baby is only currently a hypothetical. But an unexpected visit from Rhoda's perpetually pregnant friend, Susan Alborn, not only provides Rhoda with some information about what it's like to be pregnant and a mother, but also a quick appointment with her own doctor. The results from Rhoda's visit can turn her and Joe's discussion from a "hypothetical" to a "for certain".
