Main Plot[]

Manny is ready to do at any cost to become an actress, but she is shocked to learn what she really needs to have a successful audition (plastic surgery). She then visits a plastic surgeon's office to see how much it will be. The doctor tells her, then she hands him a credit card and sets an appointment for her boob job. When she tells her parents that she wants the surgery, they disapprove and her father calls her a slut. They get in a big fight. Manny then moves into Emma's house. They later hear that there is going to be a party, where Manny gets drunk and Peter, Emma's crush, takes advantage of that moment by videotaping her with her top off.

Sub Plot[]
