Mess of a Salesman
Ted helps his brother get a job selling lab equipment; Veronica receives an award from a charity for girls that Veridian supports.
Lust in Translation
Ted is able to communicate with a beautiful German executive who doesn’t speak English using Veridian’s new translation device, but the fact that the voice the device uses is Phil’s puts a damper on the mood for Ted.
The Long and Winding High Road
Ted’s enemy at work has developed an identical project that Ted’s team has been working on, but he decides to take the high road. However, Veronica gets Linda and Rose to help sabotage the rival team’s project.
The Impertence of Communicationizing
Veridian sends out a memo to the employees about inappropriate behavior, but a typo demands that they now use offensive language. Ted tries to convince Veronica to resolve the issue, but it comes a little too late as the insults are already underway. When she realizes the power of a memo typo, Veronica wonders if her promotion memo was intended for W. Palmer. Meanwhile, Linda tells Ted to loosen up, and Lem helps Phil to insult people.
Change We Can’t Believe In
While Ted tried to deal with a security guard turned stalker, Phil and Lem discover they’ll have to face their ultimate nightmare: working directly for Veronica.
Beating a Dead Workforce
A Veridian employee dies due to overwork while trying to finish Veridian’s next major project, a machine that will help people get more sleep. Instead of mourning the loss, Veronica tries to use the incident as a way to inspire the employees to work even harder.
The Lawyer, The Lemur and the Little Listener
Veronica tries to get information on Veridian layoffs from Rose, who knows a friend in her playgroup. Meanwhile, Lem has an affair with a lawyer who bills him by the hour, and Linda unwittingly makes Phil the main character in her children’s book.
Veridian Dynamics tries matchmaking employees based on their genetic compatibility in hopes of saving on health insurance bills from imperfectly bred children. Ted and Linda balk at this until they meet their supposed matches — Greg for Linda and Danielle for Ted — and are instantly attracted despite themselves. Meanwhile, after Veronica finds out Lem is her perfect genetic match, she hounds him to make a donation to a sperm bank.
