A despondent Nick, who wants to be alone, kicks Brenda out of her apartment. As Brenda takes refuge with Rhoda, Rhoda in turn demands that Brenda stand up to Nick at least to find out why he kicked her out of her own apartment. Brenda finds out it's because the five year deal he made with his father - make good in the entertainment business or else join him in his work as a trash collector - is up in exactly three days. Brenda tries her best to encourage Nick along his three day journey to stardom. But she also asks for Rhoda's help and advice directly to Nick, which may be difficult not only because Rhoda has never been the biggest Nick Lobo fan, but because she is facing her own problems, namely her skin breaking out all over of which her dermatologist can't figure the cause.
