Synopsis >

After finding a man outside his office window threatening to jump, Dave does his best to remain calm as he tries to call the police. But as Joe's work on the office phone system makes it hard for Dave, Bill does his best to make sure the police don't show so he can be a hero by rescuing Mike. And even though Dave insists on waiting for the police, Joe helps Bill out the window in order to rescue Mike while still live on the air. Even though Bill has made contact with Mike, Dave still refuses to put them on the radio. After Mike makes it clear that all he wants is to read a statement attacking his former employer, Jimmy agrees provided that he can be secured with a safety line. But before they can get started Mike falls, pulling Bill from the ledge, too. As Beth and Catherine watch and worry from above, Joe heads outside to rescue Bill and Mike from their precarious position. But when Mike threatens to cut the safety line with a pair of scissors, Jimmy agrees to let him make his statement on the air. However, when his statement reveals that he's been fired from one of Jimmy's companies, he's quickly cut off. And only to save Bill's life does Jimmy agree to let Mike go on TV with his complaint before giving him a new job -- not telling him it's in Siberia.
