Synopsis >

When they both find themselves looking at the same apartment, Dave and Lisa each ask for a personal reference from their boss. Unable to make up his mind, Jimmy turns to the staff for their advice. But even Dave and Lisa's courting Matthew's vote by submitting to a series of questions fails to break the deadlock. Meanwhile, Jimmy gives Joe one day to improve the station's shabby Internet web page. In order to aid in their decision, the staff asks to see the apartment for themselves. While it doesn't help with the choice between Dave and Lisa, it does inspire Max to want the apartment for himself. And after persuading the landlady to accept just one more application, Max joins Dave and Lisa in their race. Meanwhile, Joe casts Beth, Matthew and Max in an outrageous soap opera to boost the visibility of WNYX's website. After giving each of the candidates a chance to state their views, Jimmy is prepared to let the rest of the staff choose which one gets the apartment. But when Beth, Joe and Matthew split their votes three ways, he decides to break the deadlock by having Dave, Lisa and Max each make their case over the Internet. And when she enlists a dog whose life would be in danger if she doesn't get the apartment, Lisa wins by a landslide. Finally, seeing the vote as the website's finest moment, Jimmy decides to close it down.
