Tam still isn’t sure Bob loves her, so she asks her roommate Mary to go on a date with Bob and make a play for him. Tam overhears Bob tell Mary that he loves her. Tam quits her job and leaves, but Bob tracks her down; the man she saw with Mary wasn’t him, but her secret boyfriend. Tam and Bob get back together.
