Tommy likes Kristin's design better than Santa's, and asks her to redesign the rest of the brochure. Santa tells Kristin that she knows she's not as sweet and innocent as she pretends to be, accuses her of being after her job or something better, and tells her she doesn't know who she's dealing with. Tommy brings Marinka to the office, and she tells him she wants to have sex on his desk. Kristin gets stuck on a detail, and needs Tommy's opinion. He tells her to call Santa.

      Episode 7
      Tommy fights the planning commission for the right to put a 6-foot-tall neon "B" on the top of Ballantine Enterprises. When he finally gets permission, he learns from Aldo that the only reason the supervisor changed his mind was because Kristin sent the guy a cassette tape of his favorite singer, and asked that he repay her act of kindness by letting Tommy have his "B." Tommy goes to Kristin, wondering what she wants in return, because of course no one does favors for others without expecting something in return. But all Kristin wants is for him and Aldo to have dinner at her place, as thanks for giving her her job. So the guys join her for some down-home cookin' at her run-down, one-room apartment. After seeing the bad neighborhood she lives in, Tommy decides to repay her help by setting her up in one of his luxury model apartments -- worth $1.5 million -- free of charge. But she rejects his offer, as she needs more time to sleep on it. Aldo hears about this, and blasts Tommy for his "generosity," convinced he has ulterior motives. Even though Kristin's already entertained the thought, Aldo sits her down and explains to her how things work in "Tommyworld." She takes the lecture to heart, goes to Tommy, and tells him flat out that she won't have sex with him if she does accept the apartment. After he claims that he's a changed man and it would mean a lot to him if she took it, Kristin takes it. But when Tommy drops by all dressed up and with an alcoholic dessert in hand, she coaxes the truth out of him -- that he subconsciously wants sex with her after all. She then turns him down, and moves back to her old digs.moreless

Tommy soon realizes that Peter's generosity is really just a ploy to get Kristin into bed, as he's known the guy a lot longer than she has. But since he has no credibility with Kristin, Tommy turns to Reverend Thornhill, and asks him to break them up. The Reverend quickly sizes up that the only reason Tommy's come to him is because he himself has designs on Kristin.

      Episode 4
      Kristin is ecstatic over landing the starring role in a play -- even if the play is off-off-off-off-off-off Broadway in some basement in Brooklyn. But, hey, a Manhattan debut is a Manhattan debut. Terry Bradshaw moves into one of Tommy's apartment buildings, and when his generous donation to Kristin's production becomes a one-upping contest between him and Tommy, Tommy puts away his wallet, and makes Terry write Kristin a check for the remainder of the $7000 she'll need to fund the show. Tommy and Aldo go down to the theater to see Kristin do her thing, but Tommy's apathetic compliment -- "Good job" -- makes Kristin think that he didn't like her work. So she confronts him, and he admits that he just wasn't buying her climactic kiss with the lead actor, what, since the play is called "A Kiss Before Midnight" and everything. When she asks why not, he says that the best acting comes from experience, and she clearly hasn't had much experience -- which reduces her to tears. Kristin goes to Santa for advice in the passion department, but when she's no help, she turns to Reverend Thornhill to find out how to throw herself into her character. Instead of helping her, he just babbles about starlets of the '40s and '50s. Right before the curtain goes up, Tommy tries to get her to forgive him, since she did ask for his honest opinion, after all. To show him he was wrong, she gives him one hell of a passionate kiss before going on stage. After the show, a dumbstruck Tommy tells her she was amazing--oh, and the performance was good, too. But Kristin won't own up to the kiss being anything more than acting.moreless

      Episode 2
      Kristin is crushed when she overhears Santa and her two catty friends, Roz and Janis, mocking her behind her back. After she tells Tommy that desperately she wants their approval, he asks Santa to take Kristin out for a night on the town. On him. Santa grudgingly drags Miss Perfect along to a bar and grill, but the terrible trio make no attempt to hide the fact that they think Kristin is a bumpkin goody-two-shoes who will never fit in with their trash-talking ways. Kristin manages to win over Roz and Janis when she tells them a dirty sex joke, but Santa is not so easily sold. She decides to include Kristin for the girls' weekly visit at the massage parlor anyway, and then clues Roz and Janis in on the real reason she brought her -- she's arranged to have their Swedish masseur, Thorr, give Kristin the "happy ending," just to see how far she's really willing to go to join the in-crowd. When Kristin freaks out during the massage, Thorr lets her know that Santa paid him to do it. She then asks him to join her in a little prank on Santa and the others: from behind closed doors, he pretends to give her the massage, while she screams in ecstasy. Finally convinced of Kristin's wildness, an impressed Santa invites her former arch nemesis to join her and the gals on a trip to Atlantic City. But when the evil trifecta's ways start to rub off on her, Kristin begins to doubt herself, and asks Reverend Thornhill if she can still be a good Christian now that she's lied and faked the big "O." After learning she can't, she confesses the truth to the three back at the bar, and tells them she can't go on the trip. Santa tries to kick her out of the group, but Roz and Janis like her so much -- and dislike what their friend did -- that they beg her to stay. After Roz and Janis ask her what it is she likes to do, Kristin takes to the stage for karaoke night. Meanwhile, Tommy gives Tyrique his weirdest assignment yet -- taking snapshots of all the hot, 5'11," birthmarked strawberry blondes he spots in the World Trade Center, so he can give Tommy's card to the one Tommy fell head over heels for while leaving the building.moreless
