When the alarm clock goes off in the Real World house, most of the roommates are puzzled by this unfamiliar sound and are slow to get up. Cameran explains the slowness. Most of them don't like their job on the sailboat. Cameran hates it and dreads it. Every time they have to go to work, Jamie gets stressed out and frustrated. She wants to be on time and is tired of the other roommates' attitudes. When they arrive at the harbor, they are scolded for being 45 minutes late.
Frankie notes that due to her Cystic Fibrosis, she has difficulty doing some of the things on the boat because she gets out of breath easy. And by the way, she hates the job too. Brad thinks that the main reason they don't like their job is cause of their boss Brian. Brad says Brian treats them like little kids who don't know what they are doing. The roommates consider about planning a little mutiny.
Randy calls up his new friend Erin and invites her over to the house. Turns out she has a fake front tooth that she is more than happy to whip out while they are all sitting around the fire pit. Jacquese thinks this is poor first date behavior. Others would probably agree.
Randy gets Erin up to his room so he can get his mack on in private, while the other roommates peak in on the two kissing birds and Jacquese just hopes that Erin's tooth doesn't fall out while she and Randy are smooching. Apparently Erin also has hair extensions, which sends up another red flag with Cameran. After Randy puts Erin in a cab and returns to the house, the roommates cannot stop laughing about Erin's dental deficiency.
The next morning, Jaime is waking everyone up in hopes that they can get to work on time. That afternoon on the boat, Frankie is coughing a lot more and brings her concerns about being on the boat with her condition to Brian. "It's not like you're running a marathon," Brian cracks. Frankie handles this insensitive remark surprisingly well, but doesn't want to tell him what she goes through on a daily basis, because she doesn't want to appear to be weak.
That night, the roommates have a group meeting about the job and what they should do. Frankie says she'll stick it out, but she still worries about how it will affect her Cystic Fibrosis. Cameran is the most outspoken about quitting and disliking the job. The vote to quit the job is not unanimous because Jacquese says he is not a quitter and is fine with sticking it out. Jacquese tells him mom about what went down and explains that he doesn't like the job, but he knows he's not doing it for the rest of his life and he's okay with continuing to work there as long as he's in the Real World house. He also thinks that Frankie's smoking will probably harm her more than being on a boat.
Brad has an enlightening realization that everyone's complaints about the job, day in and day out, just might be making it worse. He thinks he should try having a more positive attitude toward it, hoping that will help him get through it. Jaime talks to Brian about the seriousness of Frankie's disease and later Brian approaches Frankie later to ask how she is doing and what kind of solutions they can find to keep her warm and feeling okay. Frankie narrates that she hasn't given anyone in San Diego enough credit about being supportive and caring and she didn't realize this until now.
Erin, Randy's dentally-challenged gal pal, calls and sober Randy has Frankie make up an excuse as to why he can't take her call. Frankie hangs up the phone saying she almost felt bad about lying to poor Erin. Randy legitimately wonders what the proper etiquette is for dealing with someone you don't want to hang out with. "Well, what did you say to Robin," Jamie inquires. Randy explains his tactic was avoidance until it becomes a problem. Works like a charm.
