When a warehouse employee, Frank, injures his back in a minor incident, Denise volunteers to take him to a chiropractor because she has a crush on him.

Worried about causing emotional pain if she denies Frank’s advances, Denise is forced to keep up the charade. Unfortunately, the other employees aren’t so willing to accept this advice.

The gang discuss racism after Gil is accused of giving preferential treatment to a white caller.

Bulldog tries to calm Roz down by keeping her mind focused on other things, and reveals the truth about her dad’s grandfather clock which mysteriously broke months ago.

Despondent, Gil goes off in search of a new hero and is encouraged to teach a course for wannabe restaurant critics at the YMCA.

"Like Moving Out and Moving In" 9 390

Roz and Bulldog decide it is time that Denise moved out of the house.

Roz is faced with letting Denise back into her home and refusing to take that leap just yet, she looks to the employees to help her out.

After yelling out the window for help, a passer-by mistakes it to be a hostage situation, and soon the police have surrounded the building.

"Everybody Hates Radio" 13 394

Kenny hires a prestigious agency to devise the latest KACL ad campaign and is continually let down by their suggestions. Kenny eventually decides to take on the task himself and asks around the station to find what kind of ads people listen to. In his quest, Kenny is dismayed to find that none of the employees listens to the radio in their free time and realises that it isn’t as popular as it used to be. Determined not to give up, Kenny gives the employees “homework”: to find a radio station they like and write an essay about it. Although they are initially unimpressed, Kenny promises them a week off if they do it for him.

"Is There a Doctor in the House?" 15 396

Roz and Bulldog reluctantly agree to let Stuart watch a marathon of sci-fi movies in an attempt to break a world record. The two of them are soon getting sick of cheap, crappy monster flicks, causing them to hallucinate at work. Bulldog is left believing that he and everyone else at the station have been enslaved by aliens on a distant planet and that the radio transmitter is being used to contact the mother ship. Roz, on the other hand, believes that she is an intergalactic adventurer, using her office (bigger on the inside than on the outside) to travel through time and space, and it’s up to Gil, Denise and Kenny to snap them out of it.

"Fusspot and Bothered" 16 397

Gil’s former mentor and current rival, Elias Marlin, returns to the station after Kenny gets him a guest spot on Gil’s program. Gil is reluctant to welcome him with open arms; nevertheless, he is able to keep a professional attitude throughout the show. A few days later, Bulldog and Denise notice that Gil isn’t reacting to the things that usually annoy him. After consulting an internet doctor, Bulldog is lead to believe that Gil’s silence during Elias' guest spot has resulted in him having a psychotic break, consequently losing his ability to identify the things that bother him. The situation spins rapidly out of control, all the while it is known that Gil is actually trying a self-help technique to stop being such a fusspot.

"Severe Retire Damage" 17 398

Roz is surprised to learn that Bulldog had her mother move into a retirement home while she was out of town a few months before. Roz decides to visit her mother, and is convinced that she is hating living there, while it is plainly obvious that she is enjoying every moment of it. Roz realises that her failure to accept her mother's happiness boils down to her fear of age, and decides to confront it for the first time. At the same time, Bulldog is determined to get Roz’s forgiveness, despite his acts having a good outcome. Meanwhile, Denise devises a list of “at-desk” dieting techniques and goes to great lengths to enforce them.

"Life on Bars" 18 399

Bulldog is looking forward to throwing a bachelor party for an accountant and delights in interviewing potential strippers.

Denise tells Roz of Bulldog’s mistake, but she is more concerned about why he is going to strip clubs.

"Lots" 19 400

Bulldog stirs up a protest after failing to find a parking space at the station for the fifth time that week. He chains himself to the building and refuses to let anyone in until the situation is sorted out. Kenny is forced to negotiate with Bulldog, threatening their friendship in the meantime. Meanwhile, Roz and Denise try to convince the local mayor to let KACL rent the nearby parking structure. Denise is forced to use some of her feminine “gifts” to convince the mayor (to the jealous Roz’s chagrin). Also, Gil is shunned by the other employees as it is revealed that he has been paying Kenny for access to a hidden parking space, right by the entrance. Gil receives his comeuppance after his car is bombarded with watermelons, and he wants nothing more than to bring the culprits to justice.

"Bulldog Grows a Pair" 20 401

After having an argument with Roz, Bulldog storms out and discovers the allotments behind their house. He meets and befriends a gardener, and they start hanging out there to drink.

In Seattle, Gil, Bulldog and Denise realise they need Kenny to keep things in order and decide to pull out all the stops to bring him back home. They arrive at the hospital where he is recovering, and end up getting into a shouting match with Rose, who wants to take care of Kenny herself.

Through flashbacks, Roz remembers the time Alice hit puberty and how she coped with it then.

When the leader unexpectedly resigns, Bulldog inadvertently volunteers to run for president and sets out to change their reclusive ways. His first order of business is to arrange a company outing, to Café Nervosa. Bulldog is sure that this act is his ticket to the presidency, but fears he has exposed the group for the worse after several of its members become embarrassed by his specially-made dunce hats.

When Denise turns out to be smarter than Roz, Roz is convinced that the results were fixed and demands numerous recounts.

As Bulldog starts making extravagant purchases, Roz is haunted by visions of her late grandfather, who berates her for letting the family’s legacy go. Roz starts to feel guilty and is determined to get the watch back.
