      Six women move into the Starting Over house and reveal their ambitions.
    • 1 Night, 30 Dates
      9/9/03
      9.4
      Rhonda passes out assignments at the group meeting. Lori will share her story with the other women and then have a one-on-one with Rhonda. Christine learns she'll be attending FastDater where she'll meet 30 men in one night. Lori shares her story by telling the women that she's never been good at socialization. She was married 3 months to the first man she ever dated, John, and he collapsed and died. After that she purposely made herself ugly by growing her hair and wearing baggy clothes. Lori is also afraid of having physical contact with other people. Later, Rhonda takes Lori for a makeover and to see an image consultant. Christine does not like any of the men she meets while Rhonda tries to help Andy realize that crying is part of change. Andy thinks crying is weak and says she hates "being so connected to her tear ducts."moreless
    • College Preparation

      The women do an exercise where they put paper plates on their backs, then take turns writing on the plates what they think about each other. All the women admit that what is written on their plates is mostly true, but Andy’s plate reveals some awful opinions that the other women have of her. She leaves the room crying. The others share that they think Andy is just being overly dramatic and seeking attention. Cassie tells her story and is warned by Rana that her underage drinking has to stop. Cassie wants to stop partying and mature so she can go to college and study archeology. Rana announces that Cassie will be taking a field trip to DePaul University to speak to people in the archeology department. Her interview goes well, and she is invited to come back and go on a dig with them. Nyanza’s task is to do three nice things for different people every day. Andy’s task is to find interviews at local media stations for an internship. In the evening, the five women go out for fun—without Andy. Lori points out that they have got to stop complaining about Andy and focus on themselves instead.moreless
    • Pampering & Procrastination
      9/11/03
      10
      Maureen’s husband, Larry, comes to visit the house for dinner. Maureen shares her story: her humor hides her pain at the loss of two of her children and problems with her husband. She finds freedom in making people laugh. Rhonda tells her to call local comedy clubs and inquire about open mic nights; Maureen procrastinates due to fear. Rhonda also gives Maureen the assignment of performing in front of her housemates. It goes well and they all laugh. Andy gets an interview at a local channel. Rhonda gets Andy ready for her interview by role-playing, and tells her to go in as her authentic self. Cassie goes to DePaul and works with the archeology people. Cassie reveals to a friend on the phone that she finds life in the house kind of boring, because there is no “substance-induced fun”. Nyanza books a manicure for herself, Cassie, and Maureen. They take off on bikes and Maureen falls off. This incident becomes fodder for Maureen’s budding comedian career.moreless
    • Finding Authenticity
      9/12/03
      10
      Nyanza tells her story: she harbors a lot of guilt because her older sister called her from the hospital and Nyanza, very busy at work and thinking her sister’s illness was minor, told her secretary to take a message. Nyanza’s sister then had a heart attack and suffered severe brain damage. Nyanza feels “crappy” because if she were ever in the hospital, she doesn’t think that anyone would come to see her. Her goal is to find her “authentic self”. Nyanza then shares pictures of her extensive designer handbag collection. Rana shares Nyanza’s assignment: choose two of her favorite outfits and donate them to charity. Nyanza is not pleased, but does give up some designer clothes. Rana says she hopes that Nyanza will come to realize that expensive material objects do not define who she is on the inside. Nyanza volunteers to help out at the charity once a week. Lori’s task is to videotape men she finds attractive. She is able to complete this assignment without thinking about her late husband. She feels “good, with a touch of guilt” about this. Andy reveals her extreme anxiety about her interview, and her taxi is late. Her interview goes well, and Andy lights up while talking about her passion: making stylish fashion without spending a lot of money on designer labels. Once again, the other women hit the town that evening without Andy.moreless
    • To Cut or Not to Cut
      9/15/03
      10
      Nyanza reveals why she butts heads with Andy: they are both “fake”. Cassie is bored and needs something to occupy her time so she won’t want to drink and smoke. Rhonda tells her that she didn’t come here to party, she came here to change her life. Cassie is given the assignment of organizing a cook-out for the women and neighbors. Maureen meets with Mollie, a woman who will serve as her comedic mentor. Mollie gives Maureen advice and encourages her to perform at an open mic night. Lori takes Rhonda on a tour of the house, pointing out things she finds beautiful; Lori has a keen artistic eye and an innate sense of beauty. Rhonda and Lori talk about hanging onto material items as a form of hanging on to loved ones who have passed away…and then Rhonda asks Lori if she’s ready to cut her long hair. Lori says not yet; somewhere on her head is hair that her husband touched, and she hangs onto his memory with her hair. Later on, she decides that she would be willing to cut her hair and donate it to Locks of Love. Christine meets with a nutritionist to learn how to eat healthy and lose weight. Nyanza comments that she doesn’t have a problem controlling what she eats. This doesn’t sit well with Andy, who thinks Nyanza is a “vain, condescending witch”.moreless
    • Cassie Takes Charge While Lori Lets Go
      Cassie is frustrated because everyone is offering her unwanted advice on her cookout. Nyanza tells her boyfriend, Erik, that she is now going to be authentic with him. Then Nyanza invites James, a friend she has met, to the barbeque. Some of the women go out to pass out invitations to the neighbors, with little success (nobody is home). While Andy and Christine work arranging lawn furniture, Nyanza is on the phone for two hours with her new friend, James. Lori gets her hair cut and a makeover; Rhonda says that this is an external manifestation of her internal growth. Lori doesn’t really want to attend the barbeque, but does her best. She does better after some of her family members arrive. Nyanza enjoys being the center of attention at the party, especially from James, who tries to convince her to let him be her “sixth fiancé”. James spends the night.moreless
