Synopsis

Richard announces that the firm will participate in an auction charity event for crippled people. Drawing from a cup, he picks himself and Nelle. Elaine interrupts saying the firm is being sued by a former employee for sexual harassment, particularly due to Elaine demonstrating her inventions to him. Richard initially picks Ling and Mark to handle the suit, but realises it is a real case and replaces Ling with Larry. Ling and Nelle bitch in the unisex and both in fact participate in the auction. Nelle is 'bought' by a rich, handsome doctor and Richard by a gay guy. After Nelle kisses the doctor, she dates him until he tells her he's sentenced for killing an ALS patient. Nelle tries not to show tears as she sees him taken to prison. Meanwhile, John has trouble with his girlfriend Kimmie bringing her mother on dates and eventually breaks up with her.
