Synopsis >

Having finally had enough of the staff's lax behavior, Dave wants to set an example by firing someone. As an alternative, Lisa recommends giving them one more chance by asking everyone to submit a written description of their job. After receiving Lisa's forty-page submission, Dave asks for the others at a staff meeting. However, when everyone else falls short, he's still intent on letting someone go. As he and Max turn to Joe for martial arts lessons, a protective suit makes Matthew feel invincible to everything, including Dave's threats. And after deciding that once a year is too limiting, Jimmy sends Beth out to collect all the Mother's Day cards she can find before setting out to make every day one to celebrate mothers. After begging everyone to comply with Dave's request, Lisa is surprised when Jimmy takes to the air to announce his Million Mommas March on Washington, D.C. While a compassionate gesture towards Matthew causes to Max lose all respect for Joe's teachings, it doesn't take Dave long to realize that the job descriptions he's received were all written by Lisa. As Jimmy admits that the reason behind his efforts to honor mothers is because he forget his own mom's birthday, Lisa finally loses her patience, too, and recommends that someone be fired. But she soon finds that Dave has changed his mind after being allowed to take out his frustrations on Matthew's padded suit.
