Everyone in Gov. Gatling's official family counts on Marcy, the governor's secretary. In addition to being efficient, she's there when anyone needs a friend. Now, Marcy is about to take a vacation, a Caribbean cruise. She trains a temporary replacement, Lorraine, who makes a hit with the boss by listening to one of his long, pointless stories. Marcy is pleased at first when Lorraine anticipates the governor's needs and makes friends with the staff. But as her departure approaches, Marcy becomes uneasy. Maybe Lorraine is too good at her work. She doesn't take coffee breaks. Kraus, the cook, fixes lunch treats for her, and Gatling's daughter, Katie, is now sharing her personal confidences with Lorraine. Marcy's insecurity rapidly escalates into paranoia and she tries to cancel her cruise reservations. She has convinced herself that Lorraine is trying to take over her job permanently. Benson, the butler, tries to reassure Marcy, but she remembers how her younger sister took over her boy friend and made a husband out of him. She feels threatened in the same way now. After Marcy makes an awkward scene in the governor's office, Benson tells her that no one is indispensable. They can get along without Marcy, but they love her, and nobody in the world can take her place. Since her cruise fare is not refundable, Marcy decides to take the trip. She returns with some blurred snapshots of her adventures, which included sunburn, a twisted ankle, and enough fun to entice her back again next year. Her earlier insecurity has been totally forgotten. © 1980 Witt/Thomas/Harris Productions. All Rights Reserved.
