With Brett Butler set to appear on Larry's show, there's just one small problem Arthur needs to take care of beforehand. Ten years ago, while touring her act on the college circuit, she had a brief affair with Paula, and wants to make sure things are okay now. Meanwhile, as Hank learns that his agent has been hospitalized after a heart attack, Paula is upset by a lump found in her breast. Though Brett does her best to be friendly, she's put off by Paula's curt attitude during their pre-show interview. Agreeing to speak with Paula, Arthur suggests she forget about her personal problems before they ruin the show. Meanwhile, Hank is besieged by agents looking to get him as a client. But just as Paula is about to try again with Brett's interview, she's forced to stop by a call from her doctor. Brett is certain that Paula's coolness is because of their affair. And only after Paula is told her lump is the result of too much coffee does Brett finally learns the truth. Meanwhile, word that his agent didn't really have a heart attack forces Hank to put his new career plans on hold for now. And Larry refuses to believe what Artie has told him until he spots Brett and Paula in what appears to be a very compromising position.
