8:00 PM THE ABC BIG PICTURE SHOW - THE ASSOCIATE

Laurel (Whoopi Goldberg) and Frank (Tim Daly) are two of the best financial analysts in their company. Laurel, the senior of the two, is next in line for a promotion. When her ambitious partner gets the job instead - because he's the right gender - she leaves and starts her own business. No one pays her the time of day until biz whiz Robert Cutty comes aboard; the catch is, he's not real, having been invented by Laurel. Now, with the help of her secretary, Laurel must transform herself into Cutty if she wants to keep her clients and stay out of jail.
