The episode opens at Madison Square Garden where Ray is interviewing pro figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi in the locker room. This opening sequence has no relevance to the rest of the episode. As the main story begins, Ray comes home with a bulldog that has followed him home. Ray asks Debra if they can keep it, and of course she answers "no". So they post signs around town saying that a lost bulldog was found. In the meantime, Robert sees the dog and falls in love with it. He had a pet bulldog just like that one when he was a kid. But the family had to get rid of it because of Ray's childhood allergies. When no one comes to claim the dog, Ray gives it to Robert. But not long after that, the owner, Phyllis, shows up at the door wanting her dog back. So Ray heads across the street to get the dog. Over there, Robert was so happy with the dog that Marie made Frank get their old "moving pictures camera" and film the occasion. Amongst all the happiness, Ray tells them he has to give the owner...
