As Larry is about to take the stage for his show, Jeannie tells him that his job has ruined their relationship. Claiming that the only way she can get a chance to talk to him is to be booked as a guest; her veiled threats force Larry to cut the monologue short. Confronted by Arthur about why he only did one joke, Larry says his wife is ready to leave him and that he had no other choice if he is to save their marriage. After discussing the difficulties of show business marriages with his guest Catherine O'Hara, Larry hurries back to his wife, leaving Hank to apologize for is erratic behavior. While Beverly and Darlene point out the advantage of being married to a celebrity, Paula chooses to sympathize with Jeannie's plight. Finding his wife in tears and blaming his staff, Larry discovers Jeannie has been depresses for some time. Returning to the show and failing to ask all the right questions, Larry is criticized by comedian Billy Crystal for letting his personal life affect his work, even though Arthur thinks the show is going great because of all the tension. Deciding that he and Jeannie need to get away, Larry insists they take a trip to Hawaii the following week, even after being reminded that it is an important ratings period. Returning to finish the show Larry asks Jeannie to take the stage with his guests, reminding her that she first met Billy Crystal at their wedding. Finally, after Larry invites her back again, and Jeannie insists they not go to Hawaii, Arthur claims this has been his best show ever.
