Episode Summary

EDIT
The Rival
AIRED:
Kristin and Aldo try to convince hard-hearted Tommy to fund the city zoo's Monkey Island, a haven for all the underprivileged simians in the neighborhood, but when he doesn't take to the idea, Kristin sends in the chimps to do the talking. Tommy's former business associate, Peter Medavoy, pays a visit to Ballantine Enterprises to see his old partner -- and takes Kristin by surprise with his confession that he just got out of prison for cheating the I.R.S. When Peter hears about her cause -- and that Tommy won't help out -- he turns over a new leaf, and tells Kristin that he knows some money men who can assist her in putting together a fundraiser. Tommy soon realizes that Peter's generosity is really just a ploy to get Kristin into bed, as he's known the guy a lot longer than she has. But since he has no credibility with Kristin, Tommy turns to Reverend Thornhill, and asks him to break them up. The Reverend quickly sizes up that the only reason Tommy's come to him is because he himself has designs on Kristin. Kristin admits to Santa that she's got a bit of a crush on Peter, and is having him over for dinner. Tommy goes to Kristin, and warns her about her new friend, but she doesn't heed his advice. When Peter drops by Kristin's apartment to do some work, Kristin frenches him, opens up her Murphy bed, and begs him to take her now. He turns down her advances, because although he's attracted to her, the new him wants to take it slow. She's impressed... until the banquet, where a suddenly candid Peter announces that the entire thing is a sham, he's taken everyone's money and deposited it in his own personal bank account, and he's been lying to her all along. When a dejected Kristin gets smashed after all the guests clear out, Tommy puts aside his desires and carries her home.moreless
