Tori desperately wants to land the role of a tough prostitute in a gritty docudrama, and can't even get an audition. She enlists Janey, Sasan, and Ruthie to accompany her to the premiere of the director's latest movie to try to get to him directly.
Pete's new skanky girlfriend is driving Tori up the wall with her lack of respect for Tori's space. Instead of just talking to Pete about it, Tori's fear of confrontation leads her to shack up first with Janey, then with Sasan and his parents.
Tori meets handsome and successful plastic surgeon Carter. Enamored with each other, the two quickly begin spending quality time. With things going so well, Tori impulsively invites Carter to dinner at the mansion with Kiki.
It's Mother's Day and Tori is relieved to discover that Kiki is away on a cruise in Mexico. Tori plans to spend the day with Nanny instead, visiting her church on Crenshaw Boulevard where Tori has many treasured childhood memories.
