Brenda has been dating Benny Goodwin, who has fallen in love with her... after their first date. In talking about their future children, Benny admits to Brenda that he had his ears done when he was a child. This admission makes Brenda think about the one part of her body that she would most like to change, namely her nose. Against Rhoda's advice, Brenda decides at least to go for a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon. After the consultation with Dr. Dreiser, who supports the notion of cosmetic surgery in general, an easily swayed Brenda decides to proceed with the expensive surgery, for which she will require a loan to do. Despite Rhoda being against the surgery in principle, Rhoda can't argue with Brenda's primary reason for getting it done, namely to feel better about herself. So can Rhoda or anyone else make Brenda feel that she's beautiful just the way she is?
