Veridian tries to play matchmaker for its employees, but the motives are less than altruistic. Ted’s and Linda’s matches cause friction between the two, and Veronica finds out that she’s matched up with Lem.
When a wave of layoff hits Veridian and little Rose seems to have inside info because of a friend in her Hive playgroup, Veronica tries to pump her for information, much to Ted’s disapproval. Meanwhile, Linda is elated to sell her first children’s book — until someone points out that her lead character, a lemur, is the spitting image of Phil — and Lem starts a passionate affair with one of the company lawyers, only to find out that his paycheck is being docked for the “billable hours” he’s spending with his new girlfriend
Ted becomes jealous when Linda upstages him and desperately seeks another way to receive Veridian’s approval, and Lem becomes upset when a colleague in the lab begins sleeping with his mom–a famous scientist who despises Veridian’s work.
Ted gets in trouble with Veronica when he provides relationship advice to her new lover, and Phil and Lem compete over a new red lab coat that has mysteriously surfaced in Lem’s locker.
