Synopsis >

After asking the staff about what they want to do in the future, Jimmy talks about selling everything and moving to a small New England town. But it still comes as a surprise when he claims that he's put the station up for sale so he can move to New Hampshire. And while Dave is sure it's a bluff, Lisa is convinced that Jimmy is serious. As Lisa sets Max to work listening for anything that would hint at the truth about Jimmy's plans, Matthew worries that a new owner would certainly fire him. In an effort to help him find another job, Beth and Joe team up to teach Matthew how to interview. Meanwhile, as Lisa begins making plans for a retirement party that will convince Jimmy to stay, Dave still suspects that all talk of leaving will be forgotten by the following day. As Matthew is prepared for a future as an astronaut, Lisa forges ahead with her plans for a modest retirement party, only to have Beth go overboard with a lavishly produced banquet. After a brief toast from Joe and a special song from Max, Matthew provides a farewell dance routine. When called on to speak, Dave simply asks that the ruse be dropped so everyone, including Jimmy, can get back to work. However, once the banquet is over, everyone is surprised when Jimmy actually leaves for a new life in New Hampshire.
