Walter is not looking forward to going to a party because the host flirts with Maude. Maude is flattered by the attention she gets, until Walter tells her the man is already involved in an extramarital affair.


While getting ready for Cliff Naylor's party, Maude makes Walter jealous with the revelation that Cliff always checks Maude out. Walter responds by dropping a bomb on Maude: Cliff is cheating on his wife. Maude feels foolish that Cliff went after another woman and perhaps she is not as sexually attractive as she thought she was.
