A rising artist in New York tests Bette's commitment while Tina has an unpleasant run-in with Lei Ling, the sperm donor's girlfriend, who begins to harass her. Alice meets a man named Lisa, who claims to be a 'lesbian in a man's body' whom she asks on a date. Meanwhile, Tim, still distrustful of Jenny after their quickie wedding, returns home alone leaving Jenny on her own. While hitchhiking back to Los Angeles, Jenny gets a ride from two disaffected teenagers, named Malcolm and Marnie, where she confides in them about her troubled life and spends the time writing a long, heartfelt letter to Tim describing her emotional pain. Also, Shane gets a big emotional boost when Harry wants to refer her hairstyling techniques to public celebrities. Written by Anonymous
