Storyline

When the prop men and cue card holders go out on strike just before show time, chaos reigns on the set. Guest host Allison Janney hasn't quite memorized her lines, and it shows. Props aren't in the right place, sound effects and sight gags go off at the wrong time, and the cast and crew struggle to get through the show. Meanwhile a 'phoned in bomb threat complicates matters.
