Mike gets some bad news from the doctor.
7 January 2015 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

In this episode, the Mayor is set to write another book but this time write it himself instead of using a ghostwriter. He has already accepted money from the publisher and some pages of the book are due. But this is a fine time for the Mayor to find out that he cannot write a book. And now he asks Mike to help him out.

But Mike has problems of his own. He has went to the doctor with an enlarge prostate and has been told that it could be cancer. Needless to say, Mike is not in the mood to be helping the Mayor write a book.

The rest of the staff is trying to get new chairs from Walter the supply manager. But it seems no matter how hard the staff tries, Walter is not giving them new chairs. But the staff has an idea that just might work.

There are quite a few funny moments in this episode but none as funny as when Mike tells Paul to keep his possible sickness quiet. You can only guess that the entire City Hall now knows all the details thanks to Paul. A nice tight episode that was well performed. Good watch.
