Dorothy is trying to get Sophia to meet her new doctor. The new doctor, Dr. Elliot Clayton, comes in and checks Sophia. Dorothy talks with the doctor for a while and decides to take him on a date. Blanche comes in and flirts with the doctor, but Dorothy tells her to back off. When Elliot comes for their date, he makes a pass at Blanche. After Dorothy leaves, Rose tells Blanche that there's something strange about this man and Blanche tells Rose about the pass. Rose tries to convince Blanche to tell Dorothy about it, but Blanche refuses due to the same incident which also involved the loss of her best friend. When Dorothy comes home, Blanche tells Dorothy about the pass, but Dorothy doesn't believe her, thinking that she made it up so she could have him for herself. Dorothy calls her a slut and they begin to argue.

Blanche, deeply hurt by this, orders Dorothy to move out. Rose decides to expose Elliot by flirting with him while Dorothy is packing. Dorothy hears the two talking about the pass and dumps Elliot. Dorothy apologizes to Blanche and the two make up. The episode ends with Sophia offering pizza samples to the girls, with one pizza being hers and the other one Mama Celeste's. The girls taste one sample and considers it Sophia's. Their guess was wrong and Sophia shouts, You can't pick men and you can't pick pizza!
