Synopsis >

As Dave and Lisa struggle to keep their own romance a secret, another potential inter-office relationship arises when Bill invites Beth to the Annual Broadcaster's Luncheon. While Beth believes him when he says the invitation comes with no strings attached, no one else in the office does. And when Bill asks her to wear the revealing dress she wore at their last Christmas party, even Beth begins to suspect things are getting out of hand. With Dave facing a $6,000 budget shortfall, Lisa quietly suggests taking a look at Matthew's phone bill. Caught making personal long distance calls on the office phone, Matthew then points to Catherine's corporate account at an expensive hair salon. Meanwhile, Bill insists that their luncheon date is harmless and that he thinks of Beth as a daughter. But, after a few glasses of champagne, it isn't Bill but Beth who makes an unsolicited advance. However it's not the kiss that gets Dave's attention. Rather, it's Beth's 93 magazine subscriptions on the company account and the chauffeured limousine Bill hired for the luncheon. As a result of the unsolicited kiss, Bill is in a state of shock, especially once everyone in the office knows what happened. After listening to Beth explain how she was simply swept away by the moment, Bill hesitatingly accepts her apology, but insists that the two of them never be left alone in the same room anymore. Finally, when Dave's investigation of the budget leads him to question Jimmy's use of a helicopter to fly home and play with his dogs at lunch, the owner's solution is simple -- increase the budget for fuel.
