Synopsis >

Though she's trying to get off to a good start as the station's new manager, Lisa finds it hard to keep Jimmy from focusing his attention on Dave. Despite her attempts to replicate the banter that existed between the two men, Lisa still cannot hold Jimmy's attention. And she's really irritated when Jimmy reveals that he has yet to tell her what he told Dave about his Secret of Management.' Meanwhile, as Dave attempts to get a handle on his new job, Bill hires a personal valet. When Lisa tries getting him to divulge Jimmy's secret, Dave refuses to be fooled. Returning to her boss, Lisa then persuades him to tell her what it is over dinner at his house. And once they arrive, she's taken aback by the elaborate web of secrecy surrounding The Secret. Meanwhile, after getting Beth and Joe to take him to lunch, Matthew insists they pretend Bill is there, too. And while he and Bill are having their own dinner with Matthew, Dave tries to discuss the problems he's had ever since changing jobs with Lisa. However, Bill is only interested in listening if it has something to do with sex. After pressing Jimmy to get on with telling her The Secret, Lisa is disappointed to discover that it's just a long list of clichés ones that Jimmy claims credit for having written himself. And Lisa is disheartened after Dave reveals that she has many more clichés to get through before Jimmy is done. Finally, after his dinner with Matthew, Bill's manservant Cadbury sneaks away after stealing everything he owns.
