Walter is a nervous wreck as the Findlays get a tax audit but the tax auditor, Harvey Clarke, turns out to be a man who tried to rape Maude 31 years ago in Boston, Massachusetts. When she tells Walter, he doesn't want to do anything about it, but Maude can't let it go and decides to refresh Harvey's memory.
Maude is in for a rude awakening as the man (Larry Haines) who conducts Walter's tax audit is the same man who attempted to rape her three decades before. Walter doesn't want to address the subject, forcing Maude to take matters into her own hands, giving the auditor a history lesson he won't forget.
