Summary

Manny's ready to do whatever it takes to become an actress, but when she flops at her audition she settles for the next closest thing: getting drunk and flashing her boobs for the video camera of the guy that Emma likes. Meanwhile, Ashley decides to stay in London, and Ellie needs to figure out the best way to tell Craig. Like oh, say, not telling him at all.

Main Plot

Manny is ready to do whatever it takes 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'll 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 don't approve 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

Ashley decides to stay in London, and Ellie needs to figure out the best way to tell Craig. Like oh, say, not telling him at all, and deciding to throw him a party instead to soften him up.

    Craig: "I won't tell"
    Spinner: "Happy Birthday man."
    Craig: "Yeah, I gotta get back."
    Spinner: "Craig, I'm sorry about what happened, it sucks but you're a great guy and you deserve better than that."
    Craig: "Better than what?"
    Spinner: "Better than Ashley. Man, I know all about it."
    Craig: "All about what? What the hell are you talking about?"
    Spinner: "Ellie said that... nothing, it's nothing... nothing."
