Synopsis >

When her contract reveals that she's entitled to an assistant, Lisa hires the lovely Foxy Jones. After getting one look at Foxy, Joe cannot keep from trying to get a date, forcing Lisa to seek Dave's help. But when he intervenes, Lisa suddenly sees that Dave and Foxy are also developing a liking for one another. Meanwhile, when Max complains about the ladies room having a couch, Jimmy installs one in the men's room, too. Yet, after Matthew and Max are both dissatisfied with a love seat, Jimmy converts their bathroom into a plush private club. As Foxy and Dave's attraction to one another grows, Lisa finds that she's getting virtually no work out of her new assistant. Unwilling to be pushed aside, Joe continues to court Foxy. But when she makes it clear that she's interested in Dave, Joe admits defeat. In retaliation for being banned from the women's lounge, Matthew imposes a similar ban on Beth when she wants to use the new men's room. However, when pressed, Matthew, Jimmy and Max all agree to consider her for membership in their exclusive new club. When Dave suggests keeping their budding romance under control at the office, he learns that Foxy is also interested in Joe. But when the two men can't agree to share her, she dumps them both. Meanwhile, following her membership interview, Beth is allowed in the new men's lounge. However, the clubby atmosphere is ruined when Matthew breaks the unspoken rule and uses the bathroom facilities. And once everyone else agrees, Jimmy returns the room back to its original condition. Finally, after Foxy quits, Lisa and Dave are left to discuss the futility of office romances.
