Erica and Judith have a falling out over a misunderstanding regarding who Judith has chosen as her baby's godmother. Erica not being chosen reinforces her own negative perceptions of not feeling grown up. Dr. Tom sends Erica back to her Bat Mitzvah, appropriate not only because it was supposed to be her official transition into adulthood, but also that she walked out on that party just like she did with the baby shower she just hosted for Judith. Erica's Bat Mitzvah, on a theme of the movie Dirty Dancing (1987), never lived up to hype and excitement she felt before the party. But Erica's adult sensibilities can now relive the party for what it was. She can also learn that an official event like a Bat Mitzvah does not nor need not have to mean she should feel like an adult. Written by

I think it's the having sex part.
