Dick, pondering the significance of New Year¹s Eve, fears that he¹s done nothing of consequence in 1998. When he mistakenly thinks it¹s midnight a few minutes early, he embraces Mary and dances with her in the snow -- a perfect moment that he later realizes was not only his most meaningful act of 1998, but also a lovely way to start 1999. Harry hires Larry and Mrs. DeGuzman to work at Happy Doug¹s Bar with him, but they¹re both so dang lazy, he fires them both on New Year¹s Eve. Officer Don gets upset that Sally takes advantage of his nice-guy nature, and he lays down the law -- her cutesy, little-girl cajoling will no longer work on him. Sally realizes that with her feminine appeal comes a great deal of responsibility for using it benevolently, and she vows to do better in the new year. Tommy, the party coordinator for Happy Doug¹s big celebration, is completely frazzled by the enormous responsibility of helping Rutherford ring in the new year.
