Leslie is disappointed when she asks Ben out on a date and he turns her down, after which Ann convinces her to sign up with an oline dating service. Surprisingly, the website matches Leslie up with Tom and Leslie ponders whether or not she should ask him out. Ron and Chris two enter into a contest to see which type of burger tastes better: Chris's healthy turkey burgers or Ron's old fashioned beef burgers. After a disastrous lunch with Tom, and a lot of his taunting in the aftermath of it, Leslie learns that the only reason Ben turned her down for a date is because Chris disapproves of office relationships. Encouraged by this, Leslie sets out to find a loophole that will allow her to pursue Ben. Ron is announced the winner of the burger contest.
