Storyline

Fran thinks that she's a natural songwriter, especially for angst-ridden teen rock star, Tasha. Fran and Val try and track Tasha down through the streets of New York, and finally manage to sneak into her hotel room pretending to be the hotel's maid service. As she feels she's burnt out as a songwriter, Tasha does find that she does need Fran's professional help, not as a songwriter as Fran is awful at it, but as a muse. Tasha wants to draw on Fran's miserable life for inspiration. Fran loves being Tasha's muse as she feels it is a way to express herself creatively. Maxwell however thinks it's destructive to Fran's psyche. Maxwell tries to convince Fran that he needs her more than Tasha, which makes Fran happy. Fran's happiness is her downfall with Tasha, who easily finds another miserable soul as muse to replace Fran. Meanwhile, Niles is listening to a self-help tape on how to be successful with women.
