When Terri breaks up with her ill-tempered dentist boyfriend, he believes that Jack is the cause.


Terri asks Janet's advice about how to break up with Dr. Phil Greene, a dentist at the hospital where Terri works, who has a terrible temper. While they are discussing it, Jack comes in complaining about a toothache. Terri makes an appointment for a fearful Jack to see Phil, who happens to be a children's dentist. Phil gives him a prescription and tells him to come back in a few days and they will begin work on the tooth. Later, when Terri breaks it to Phil that she doesn't want to see him anymore, he mistakenly assumes that Jack has come between them. The next day Terri and Janet rush to rescue Jack from Phil's dentist chair, where they unwittingly believe he has fallen victim to Phil's temper.
