Episode Summary

Who's the Boss
Terry insists that Gwen get rid of some of her possessions that are cluttering up the apartment. Gwen reluctantly participates in a tag sale out on the street. Guy comes by to hit on Gwen, but he does prove his worth by talking up the price on an item to a customer. Unfortunately, one of Gwen's old friends, Alyssa, sees her. Gwen explains that she was just hunting for bargains and suggests that Terry is some poor wretch she's helping out. After Gwen has lunch with Alyssa, Terry is not too happy, but Gwen got a contact for a new client, a radio station-owning millionaire. The women need an office to make a good impression, so they blackmail Danny into letting them use the one in which he's been carrying on with a businessman's daughter. In the office, Gwen and Terry have an argument over whose job is harder to do. Both claim they could do the other's job. So when the client comes in, Terry assumes Gwen's identity and vice-versa, even sending Gwen out for coffee! Tom Whitman is a brash, bluff-talking Texas millionaire who wants the women to promote a big band radio station he owns that is a favorite of his wife. When Tom tries to get ideas out of Terry, though, she keeps coming up empty. For her part, Gwen finds administrative details too much to handle. Danny lets Gwen know that Terry is out dining and dancing with Tom, but is about to lose the deal. Gwen comes to Terry's rescue, and after they both admit they can't do the other's job, they tag-team dance with Tom and in the process come up with a winning promotion for his radio station.moreless
