Eccentric filmmaker Barry Woods arrives at the station to create a documentary based on media outlets in Seattle. He interviews the staff, including Roz, who is annoyed that the documentary was commissioned by Kenny without her permission. Bulldog tries to overcome his stage-fright in time for his interview and enlists the help of Denise to practise in front of a fake camera. When Bulldog’s nerves result in him knocking Barry over and destroying his equipment, Roz worries about the effect it will have on the station. Barry promises not to sue, under one condition: Roz lets him film people in secret for an entirely different kind of documentary: “Secrets of the Workplace”. Conflicts are raised between the employees as various secrets are revealed, so Gil, Bulldog and Denise team up to destroy the film before it destroys everything else.

Meanwhile, Bulldog and Kenny also get themselves committed after pleading Gil’s case at the home, and the two of them refuse to do the one thing that could get them out: call Roz.
