Following Jimmy's departure, the station staff is too despondent to work. Insisting that his absence is only temporary, Dave feels vindicated when Jimmy returns. However, after announcing that he's back just long enough to complete the sale of the station, Jimmy takes Dave aside to complain about being lonely and asks him to move to New Hampshire, too. After insisting that he can spare no one, Dave reconsiders and suggests that Jimmy take Matthew instead. While Matthew suspects some powerful reverse psychology is being employed to get him to accept the offer, Beth, Lisa and Joe all agree that he would never make it outside New York. However, when Jimmy suggests that they all come along, Dave must then keep everyone from defecting. Meanwhile, after Matthew accepts the offer, Lisa decides to follow Jimmy to New Hampshire for the upcoming presidential primary election. In the wake of Lisa's resignation, Dave learns that Beth and Max are going to New Hampshire, too. And though she's upset with the idea that he would let her go so easily, it's only after she's taken her revenge that Beth learns Dave really tried to keep her. With Max and Lisa gone, Dave turns the on air duties over to Joe. But when Joe is also persuaded to accept Jimmy's offer, Dave is left as WNYX's last employee. However, just when he thinks he's alone, Dave discovers that Matthew has decided to stay in New York after all.
