The next night, Nicole is supposed to help again at the shelter, but she has a chance to go see the Rollling Stones.

  • Something About An Ex-Goddess
    Stephanie is a wreck--she's being written out of her TV series "Thena" and is to be replaced by a younger warrior goddess, Zora. To make it worse, her character will be killed off on a special live broadcast. Carly wants to offer sympathy and support, against Jack's advice. The two of them see Stephanie and try to cheer her up by telling her she'll have more time for Nicole and Sheldon. Steph takes the advice to heart, smothering those two with attention that is driving them nuts. Nicole comes home with the news that Stephanie wants her to live with her. Before the show begins, Jack and Carly visit Stephanie backstage to wish her luck. She pries out the news from the couple that Nicole doesn't want to move and that Sheldon is distancing himself from her, which doesn't exactly help her already fragile state of mind. The broadcast begins and it quickly turns into a fiasco, as Stephanie begins to ad lib and refuses to let Thena die. Finally Zora convinces her that she must go through with it, and Stephanie makes her final exit with an admonition to the audience to spay and neuter their animals. At home, the family gathered around the TV stares wide-eyed and open-jawed at what has just transpired--except for Dante, who is moved to tears.moreless
