  • Mike turns 30 and goes to meet an ex on top of the Empire State Building. In high school they promised to meet if they aren't married on Mike's 30th birthday. The mayor tries to discover his nephew's sexual orientation.

    Mike faces 30 with some trepidation. Although he is clearly sucessful in his job - um, he's 30 and Deputy Mayor?, he is unhappy with his relationship. Obviously, his personal shortcomings are what's hindering him. This is especially noticable when he goes to meet his high school sweetheart on the top of the Empire State Building and finds more than one there to meet him. Also, why are they meeting on his 30th birthday? What about hers? Anyway, he stays and talks to the only one he remembers (although he seems to have forgotten some details about her as well). What makes the episode above average is Renee - she wants a full life, but is unwilling to compromise, or smart enough to see through Mike. She'll always be the one that got away.
