The mayor invites Fred and Carrie to meet him for brunch, although he's delayed at one of the city's bridges. Fred and Carrie find themselves in a long line outside the restaurant. Peter and Nancy are well ahead of them: she's insisted they try this place that got a great review in the paper. She's annoyed at Peter's indecisiveness, but he finds a resolute core when she's accused of cutting in line. Feminist bookstore owners are incensed when the brunch line blocks their door, and a frustrated businessman looks for customers. Will anyone get pancakes?
