As part of her on-going therapy, Fran decides to give up men. After C.C. discovers her on-line fling is ending (a mutual decision when each finds out who the other is), Fran, Val and C.C. decide to have a series of girl's nights out. The girl's only club quickly dwindles as Val ends up with a guy and C.C. ends up with a guy, leaving Fran all alone. Although she initially declines the invitation, Fran decides to be the fifth wheel in C.C. and Val's double date. Fran feels totally out of place in this situation. But Maxwell is just as miserable at home alone without Fran keeping him company. So they decide to practice being alone together. Written by Huggo
