  • Sherry Ferris, the prostitute with who Mary once shared a jail cell when Mary wouldn't reveal a news source, comes by asking for that favor that Mary promised within general chit-chat back at the jail cell. Sherry, once again arrested, wants Mary to be a character witness at her court appearance. Mary agrees. It ends up not being that simple, as Mary swears in court that she will look after Sherry and help her look for a legitimate job. Sherry doesn't want to hold Mary to that promise, as Sherry doesn't believe she can get a legitimate job with her background and lack of marketable job skills, but Mary takes her oath seriously. The difficulty of the task becomes not finding a job for Sherry, but finding her a job that she likes and thus will stick with. Mary encourages Sherry to follow her dreams. Mary may regret that advice when she is the recipient of one of Sherry's professional dreams.

  • Mary helps a street girl she met in prison to go straight.
