Sam treats a woman, Kathy, with her fourth sports-related injury in three months. She confides that she needs an outlet because her husband, Paul, hasn't had sex with her in 18 months. He refers them to the co-op's therapist, Violet (Amy Brenneman), who tells Paul to just have sex with her already. It doesn't fly and now Paul is crying and Kathy is sorely tempted to just cheat on him.
Violet has to pick up Cooper (Paul Adelstein), a pediatrician at Oceanside Wellness whose Internet date stole his car, a common problem for him. Violet runs into her ex, Alan, with his new bride of eight weeks. She tells a colleague she's a lousy therapist since she can't even get over her ex after six months.
