Mary (Davis) is a successful author of thriller novels, and happily married to her husband Tom (Dermot Mulroney) with children. Her publisher asks her to write another in her most successful book series, that she’s long put off, and offers her a very attractive two million dollar advance. She declines at first, saying “you don’t know me when I write. I become a different person” but is forced to accept when Tom reveals he lost half of their entire estate by gambling on a risky investment.

Mary starts having what appears to be sexual fantasies about Grace, which she confides with in Elaine. However, when she approaches Grace to say they can’t do it ever again, Grace seemingly has no idea what Mary is talking about. Elaine begins privately questioning Grace. Tom almost walks into the kitchen while Grace and Mary are engaged in a sexual act. Mary sleeps and has what appears to be a dream about Grace and her husband engaging in sexual activity, which Mary cannot seem to figure out is reality or a product of her dreams. She confronts her husband and Grace at the dinner table, upsetting her children as well as Grace and her husband.
The following morning, Mary apologizes, saying her outburst was the result of working too hard. She telephones the nanny agency to ask why they haven’t cashed the cheque she gave them, and they tell her that she hasn’t actually picked a nanny yet.
