Synopsis >

After receiving their anniversary gift from his mother, Paul and Jamie abandon their agreement not to get each other anything. Jamie offers to make him a list, but Paul insists he knows her well enough to pick out something on his own. However, as they each set out to shop, Jamie turns to Ira for help, while Paul consults with Fran and Lisa. Jamie finally gives up and sends Ira to get something while, at the department store where Lisa works, Paul is finally persuaded to buy his wife an expensive silver serving tray. When Lisa shows up with a bunch of glass grapes instead of the tray, Paul must come up with another gift on the spot. And when Ira arrives with Paul's gift, Jamie is shocked to discover it's a vintage poster from The Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, the first movie her husband ever saw. Serious about the fact that it's the best gift he's ever received, Paul then presents Jamie with a piece of paper which entitles her to one magical night. But when she's certain it means reservations for all of them to have dinner at the ultra exclusive Twilight Room, Paul is in trouble. At the Twilight Room, Ira sends the women off to the bar so he and Paul can persuade the maitre d' to give them a table. Yet, without a reservation, they stand no chance of getting in and soon are forced to leave. Ending up at a loud, crowded and smoky rock club where Ira's girlfriend Susannah performs, Paul finally explains the mix-up with Jamie's gift. Though upset that he sought help, Jamie is on shaky ground herself when Paul reveals that Ira consulted with him about the present she claims to have bought. Jamie is certain that the entire episode has called their marriage into question. And when they find that the newsstand where they first met has burned down, the Buchmans are puzzled by evidence which suggests they never met and never married.
