The law firm represents Daniel Post (Michael J. Fox), a CEO battling terminal lung cancer who used his status with a pharmaceutical company to ensure that he receive the non-placebo in a promising anti-cancer drug test. Now, another participant in the test study is suing him. During one of Post's visits to Crane, Poole & Schmidt, the charismatic man meets and becomes romantically involved with the firm's Denise Bauer. Meanwhile, Denny Crane is attracted to Beverly Bridge (Joanna Cassidy), a fifty-year-old attractive predator trolling for a husband amongst her high-net-worth peers. And Alan Shore advocates on behalf of "Hands" (Christian Clemenson), a fellow quirky employee in his quest for partnership at Crane, Poole & Schmidt.
