Synopsis >

Having agreed to switch jobs for a day, Jimmy goes to work as a reporter at the station while Matthew becomes a tycoon. But as Dave keeps Jimmy from trying to make news that he can then cover, Matthew calls on Joe for help to turn on the computer in his new office. Meanwhile, after Dave bars Max from the breakroom for stealing food, Beth is caught using false names to cash in on a free CD offer. Out of boredom, Jimmy decides to do a little trading in the stock market for Matthew. But Matthew's efforts to do the same in his boss's account cost Jimmy his entire multi-billion dollar fortune. Meanwhile, as Beth tries enlisting the staff in an effort to hide her stolen CD's, Dave keeps Max from eating anywhere at the station. With Dave doing everything he can to keep Jimmy from killing Matthew, Beth resigns herself to the fact that her CD scam is going to send her to jail. However, when the investigator offers her $1,000 in cash to never discuss how she managed to get all the CD's, Beth is relieved. After deciding to forgive Matthew and get on with rebuilding his fortune, Jimmy learns that it was all a mistake and that he's still very rich. Finally, Max tricks Dave into restoring his breakroom privileges.
