Ted Crisp's job at Veridian Dynamics constantly keeps him on his toes. The fast paced world of research and development brings many zany personalities together, but they all must survive working for a money hungry corporation.
Veridian tries to play matchmaker for its employees, but the motives are less than altruistic. Ted's and Linda's matches cause friction between the two, and Veronica finds out that she's matched up with Lem.
When a wave of layoff hits Veridian and little Rose seems to have inside info because of a friend in her Hive playgroup, Veronica tries to pump her for information, much to Ted's disapproval. Meanwhile, Linda is elated to sell her first children's book -- until someone points out that her lead character, a lemur, is the spitting image of Phil -- and Lem starts a passionate affair with one of the company lawyers, only to find out that his paycheck is being docked for the "billable hours" he's spending with his new girlfriend.
Ted becomes jealous when Linda upstages him and desperately seeks another way to receive Veridian's approval, and Lem becomes upset when a colleague in the lab begins sleeping with his mom--a famous scientist who despises Veridian's work.
Linda and Ted face sexual harassment charges from an overreacting coworker, but Veronica's solution to the problem creates unexpected complications. Meanwhile, Lem and Phil try to save a robot that is replaced by a human.
Ted struggles with an overly talkative security guard who worships him and wants to be his best friend. Meanwhile, a terrified Phil and Lem face the prospect of working alone with Veronica for the first time.
A new corporate memo causes all Veridian employees to insult their colleagues, Ted tries to prove that he's not over-controlling on an MRE project, and Veronica suddenly feels uncontrollable guilt over her last promotion.
Ted tries to take the high road with one of his bitter rivals in Research and Development after they come up with competing products, while Phil and Lem search for a scapegoat after they break the lab thermostat.
Ted gets his brother a job selling lab supplies, and Phil and Lem go overboard buying items they don't need. Veronica is set to receive an award from the Veridian Foundation to help raise money for a charity she doesn't know about.
Phil and Lem create a new lie detector device which ends up creating havoc for Linda and her family. Meanwhile, Ted and Veronica use their respective daughter and niece as pawns to gain favor with Chet, the boss upstairs.
The Company implements a new reward system which Phil and Lem take advantage of. Ted and Linda try to stop office rumors that they are sleeping together, while Veronica gets stuck occupying the former CEO of Veridian.
