Titre original : High Noon
Mike and Kate have an argument over editing his column down. Mike is so annoyed by this that he contacts the New York Times to try and get a job with them. He thinks that by doing this he will be able to force Kate's hand and get what he wants.
Retaliating Kate gets in touch with Jack Stein, the other top columnist in New York, to try and see if she can persuade him to take over Mike's column.
