Ben Folds Five performs a song from their new album "The Sound of the Life of the Mind."
When Mary Lou dents Hank's prized Bentley, she cannot bring herself to admit to the accident. So when Hank sees the damage, he's sure that it's the work of Vince Vaughn, a guest on the show with whom he engaged in some less than congenial banter. Consequently, he asks Beverly to track down Vaughn for revenge. Meanwhile, Larry's publicist arranges for him to be interviewed by Maureen O'Boyle, a reporter with a history of romantic entanglements with Arthur. During the interview, Maureen's questions about his relationships with the staff make Larry start to cry. Uncomfortable with the intimate moments, Larry asks Norman to get them edited out. However, with Arthur scheduled to have dinner with her, the publicist asks that he raise Larry's concerns with Maureen. And though Maureen doesn't agree to the changes, Arthur tells Larry that she did. Meanwhile, when Mary Lou tries to admit responsibility for the accident, Hank misunderstands and assumes that she's interested in a date. And despite Beverly's warning, she agrees to dinner at Hank's house. After comic Jim Belushi recalls how Maureen got another subject to cry on TV, Larry is more relieved than ever that he asked for the cuts. But as Larry is getting ready to watch at home, Arthur arrives to make a last, yet successful, effort to distract him. Meanwhile, when Hank responds to Larry's crying with an emotional moment of his own, Mary Lou seizes the opportunity to tell him about the accident. And once Vaughn complains about having his car sabotaged, Hank must apologize. Finally, when the staff responds to having his feelings about them made public, Larry turns to Arthur for help.
Larry tries to have a revealing interview edited; Mary Lou tries telling Hank that she hit his car.
