A snowstorm traps the gang inside the courthouse without supplies, as an electrical failure traps Dan in an elevator with a gay man who finds him attractive.

Plot Summary

A blizzard traps everyone in the courtroom without electricity or supplies. Well, almost everyone: Dan Fielding is stuck in an elevator with a gentleman named Warren Wilson, who turns out to be gay — and who is also briefly attracted to the nonplussed attorney. Former Bob Newhart Show costar Jack Riley is atypically cast as the love-smitten Mr. Wilson.
