Roz adjusts to life on her own in Bloomer now that Bulldog has left town to see the world. At the same time, she finds herself struggling financially without his pension, forcing her to apply for a job at the newly re-opened and renovated WKZT. The manager, young college graduate Damien Black, reluctantly agrees to let her on due to her experience, despite his misgivings about her age. Roz quickly finds herself settling back in at the station but struggles with not being her own boss anymore. At the same time, she quarrels with the new secretary, a feisty young woman named Chloe Nolan, who later turns out to be Damien's girlfriend. When Chloe makes a formal complaint, Roz finds herself being forced to prove her competency, so she enlists the help of new town resident Bebe Glazer to enforce this.

Gil and Debbie are excited because it means their biggest business ever, but disaster ensues when Damien forgets his wallet and has neglected to mention that the company will not be paying for their selections. Roz becomes determined to make it up to the frustrated café owners and encourages Damien to wash dishes for the rest of the day. This, in turn, makes the employees like him more for being subjected to dull "grunt work", and Damien thanks Roz for her advice.

Determined not to lose his job or this once in a lifetime opportunity, Giles desperately searches the whole of Bloomer for someone to cover his shift, eventually finding Damien. Giles returns dejected later that evening after Bebe failed to show up at the agency and is shocked to find that Damien is doing a fantastic job and that everyone at the café loves him. Gil and Debbie fed up with Giles' constant tardiness, refuse to let him work there again unless he beats Damien in a waiting competition.

Bebe is determined to get a hold of the money to finance her very own talent agency in Bloomer; while Roz considers requesting a share so she can join Bulldog on his tour of the world. However, their requests prove to be pointless when Angus persuades Damien to drop his cash into the town square from a helicopter in the sky. Roz is upset when she only manages to get $2, and when the townspeople start spending their share on expensive material items, she becomes determined to teach them a lesson about using money wisely.

However, when Gil returns, he is unhappy that this decision was made without him and becomes determined to balance the scales by doing something without her input. Before they know it, impromptu decisions are being made left and right, and the café descends into chaos, forcing Dino to do something before the most stable job he's had in months is thrown out the window.

Roz is surprised to learn Dino has a flair for musical theatre and tries to convince him to act on his dream of directing a musical.

Roz becomes determined to intercept the mail before it arrives at its destination, and finds herself forced into agreeing to a date with the depressing mailman, Dale. The night turns out to be one of the worst of Roz's life when Dale takes her to Café Blossom, incurring the gossip of all her friends and neighbours. Roz desperately tries to find a way out of the nightmare when she notices Dale carries his undelivered mail around with him at all times, so she drags her less than subtle spectators into the mix for assistance.

Roz is busy trying to entertain Denise and Kenny but finds that Kenny has developed a depressing attitude ever since Denise's diagnosis of Alzheimer's that makes giving thanks a particularly difficult task. Bebe has a stand-off with Dino at the local supermarket over the last microwavable turkey. Supplies are running low at Café Blossom, and Debbie is close to having a nervous breakdown, and all Gil wants to do is impress a stingy local restaurant critic. Damien is shocked to find several turkeys have stowed away on his private jet during a romantic Thanksgiving in the air with Chloe. This wouldn't usually be much of a problem, except that their pilot has a deadly fear of turkeys and is unable to land the plane until something is done about them.

Roz is hostile towards Celia as a result, making Stuart angry, and eventually, Roz decides they cannot stay with her as she is too upset to welcome Bulldog back into her life with open arms. This forces Bulldog to crash on Gil's couch, while Stuart and Celia stay at a motel. The next day, Bulldog becomes determined to win Roz back with a romantic gesture, and he shanghais the residents at a town meeting into helping him throw a "second wedding" for Stuart and Celia so Roz can witness the nuptials this time.

However, after talking to Gil, he realises Bebe is never this nice without a catch and becomes determined to find out what she's up to. Bebe is hurt when she realises what he is doing, and climbs to the edge of the town hall's roof. Angus steps in as negotiator when the townspeople gather in shock, while Bulldog, still unsure about Bebe's sincerity, enlists Gil's help to break into the filing cabinet in her apartment. After getting it open, they are shocked when they realise it has triggered a small fire and they are forced to get out quickly. Bebe notices her apartment building going up in flames and climbs down from the roof, making Bulldog realise that everything Bebe's done: her acts of kindness and her suspicious "suicide attempt", was all a scheme to gain the insurance money from her apartment without getting the blame for starting the fire.

The discussion of intergenerational relationships becomes the basis of an argument between Damien and Chloe when Damien admits that, if he were to "go old", Roz would be his choice as he finds her sexy in a "mature" sort of way. Chloe is upset because she has worked vigorously for years to keep herself looking young, so she decides to teach Damien a lesson by not maintaining her appearance for several days. However, this only makes things worse when Damien doesn't even notice, prompting Chloe to have a heated confrontation with Roz over her new relationship. Roz finds the accusation hilarious, and reveals the man is the nephew of Frasier's wife Charlotte, and he is in town hoping to get work experience at the station. Chloe neglects to mention to this to Bulldog, who is doomed to make a fool of himself when he conspires with Giles to humiliate the man in front of everyone with his extensive collection of water pistols.

Their investigation leads them to the town hall, where Angus reveals that an anonymous buyer has recently purchased a large plot of land in the Bloomer countryside. Travelling to the land he bought, Gil and Bebe discover a large sign with the words "Gnomeland: coming soon". Later on, many more gnomes start appearing around Bloomer, driving the residents into a panic. Angus is quick to demonstrate his incompetence in dealing with a crisis when he caves into mob mentality and grants permission for the gnomes to be round up and burnt. While on a "stakeout" for the buyer with Bebe, Gil is surprised to see a small gnome-keyring in her purse and comes to the conclusion that she was paid off to help in the Gnomeland ad campaign.

Gil releases Roz and Bulldog from their capture, neither of them having said a word to each other, and he leaves with Bulldog. Debbie realises the division has begun, and that she is powerless to stop it. Angus, on the other hand, is not so willing to give up, and he calls an emergency town meeting to discuss the problem: with Gil on Bulldog's side, those who swore allegiance to Roz feel unwelcome at Café Blossom.

Chloe begins to wonder why Frasier is so highly regarded in the psychiatric community when he plans a series of bizarre new age tactics to help Roz and Bulldog. Gil tells her that Frasier isn't usually like this, and they come to the conclusion that he is under the influence of drugs. Chloe notices that Roz and Bulldog are concerned for their friend, and decides it's the perfect opportunity for them to work out their differences with each other under the pretence of getting Frasier help. Unfortunately, Frasier is unwilling to play along and is convinced that his new age tactics are the key, forcing Chloe and Gil to do some serious improvisation to keep up the illusion of his drug addiction. Roz and Bulldog eventually call a truce and agree they'll have to be civilised with each other to continue living in Bloomer.
