Episode Summary

They Sell Horses, Don't They?
The women are searching through the pockets of Gwen's clothes looking that she'd forgotten about in her more prosperous days when Terry finds a receipt for part ownership in a race horse calle Living Large, a purchase that also slipped Gwen's mind. Terry of course wants to sell the horse and put the money into the business. The impractical Gwen wants to hang onto the mare, which hasn't won a race in three years. Finally she agrees to sell the horse if it doesn't win its next race. Also among Gwen's things, Danny finds the number of basketball pro Karl Malone. He calls the number and finds out that, amazingly, Malone is familiar with his play "A Stork in Winter." What's more, Malone writes himself, and promises to send Danny a screenplay for him to read. Terry, Gwen, Guy and Danny all head to the track to watch Living Large run. Terry is adamant that she won't bet on any races, but her resistance wears down and she does. She ends up winning several races in a row, making a substantial amount of money. A track denizen tells Gwen that not only is Living Large a lousy bet, but that the horse will be sold for dog food if she loses again. After the horse comes in a distant last in its race, Gwen goes to the paddock with the idea of freeing the animal, but the horse isn't buying it. It turns out, though, that Terry has a soft place in her heart and has bought the old mare for Gwen with her winnings, intending to board it at an upstate farm. Back home, Danny is avioding Karl Malone's calls, since his screenplay turned out to be not so good. But the "Mailman" tracks down Danny and has him listen to him sing a song from his new musical.moreless
