Episode Summary

Contest of Wills
Fashion consultant Sydney Page is unable to find a male model for a new clothing line until she meets Chuck Fisher, the hotel's plumber. Chuck exudes sex appeal, and Sydney tries to talk him into doing a photo session. When Chuck expresses that he hates modeling, Sydney resorts to seduction in an effort to change his mind. They spend the night together, but Chuck still refuses to model. Sydney realizes she'd rather have a man in her life than a model for her fashion campaign, and the two make up. A crusty businessman from Maine, Vein Lambert, whose daughter Joanne has been killed in an accident, comes to gather up her personal effects and take her back to Maine for burial. Lambert is unaware that, for the past six years, Joanne had lived with her lesbian lover, Carol Bowman, the hotel's catering manager. Lambert contacts Peter and demands that Carol be dismissed for corrupting his daughter. Peter tries to reason with Lambert, who wants, among other things, to take back an heirloom that Joanne had given to Carol. As Lambert and Carol go through Joanne's belongings, their memories of her dissolve their hostilities, and Carol travels back to Maine with Lambert for the funeral.moreless
