Episode Recap

Dorothy is on the phone holding for tickets to a Frank Sinatra concert, only to find out that they're sold out. She wants the tickets so badly that she decides to buy them from a scalper. Meanwhile, Blanche is discouraged by her poor grade in a psychology course, which she needs to pass in order for her job.

Blanche decides to approach her professor and ask if she can do extra credit. She is unpleasantly surprised when he suggests she can land an "A" by sleeping with him.

Back at the house, Dorothy storms in, thoroughly deflated that she wasn't able to scalp tickets. Blanche comes in shortly after, musing what to do about her professor. The girls advise her to report him to the dean.

Blanche's visit to the dean proves to be a disaster when he informs her that because there were no witnesses, she has no grounds. Blanche tells him what he can do, and storms out.

Meanwhile, Rose, Dorothy, and Sophia all end up getting tickets to the Sinatra concert and end up with ten tickets. Dorothy suggests they scalp the extra tickets. Blanche decides to study harder than ever to pass the exam and show up her licentious professor. She tells him he can kiss her "A."

That evening, Rose, Dorothy, and Sophia don't get home until 2:00 a.m. when they end up getting arrested after selling the Sinatra tickets to an undercover police officer and thrown in jail.
