Episode 1: The Failure – Chip Lambert arrives at La Guardia airport, New York, to meet his parents, Alfred and Enid, and take them back to his Manhattan apartment for lunch. But Alfred appears to be in a bad way, and Chip has his own troubles – his academic career has ended in disgrace, his girlfriend appears to be dumping him and his semi-autobiographical screenplay is in need of urgent corrections.
