Lars and Phyllis are arguing about her exorbitant spending habits, in part because of their stocks taking a tumble and Lars' business being down. He ultimately places her on a budget and cuts off access to her credit cards. So Phyllis decides to look for a job. In her search for a job, Phyllis comes to some realizations about her place in working society, which makes her compare her life to Mary's. Meanwhile, the Lindstroms' money woes make Mary examine her own finances. And Sue Ann, named woman of the year by the local Elks Club, does whatever she can to get her story on the six o'clock news.
