Petrified of losing his dwindling patient base with the upcoming Supreme Court decision he is forced to lease out two offices in his practice. One to a pair of plastic surgeons and the other to a dentist. What he doesn't know is that one of the plastic surgeons is Marcia, his ex-wife and the dentist is his long-time mistress, Deidre. Deidre looks exactly like Marcia after undergoing plastic surgery. (Unbeknownst to her!) Marcia wants her alimony; Deidre wants to find her long-lost child. Both are expecting financial help from Thomas, who is dead broke. Enter Budd, Thomas and Marcia's son, who arrives to ask his father to pay for a wedding to marry Bernadette, a pro-life activist. Terrified his girlfriend may discover his father's controversial occupation he does whatever it takes to keep her from his father.
