Jewish Barber Ben runs his Boston salon with gay Buzzy, from whom he bought the ownership, and a bizarre team of locals including four R-named sisters Doyle. Faced with a wage costs rise, he tells them one job must be cut, and they should decide who will be fired. At first everyone tries to affirm being the most indispensable, but suddenly handsome, popular jock A.J. Salerno volunteers his spot, as he has an appointment with a leading sports recruiter and expects to be hired at last for his dream job: profession baseball player. After a colleague realizes he's just not elated enough, he admits the offer went to his brother, but solidarity finally kicks in.
