The roommates learn that they have an opportunity to earn some extra money on the boat and they are psyched, but the way it works is that they all have to participate--if one person screws up, then none of them will get the money.
The roommates notice a growing tension between Frankie and Robin. Brad thinks he has the two figured out. Frankie is the chill punk rock chick who hates cheerleaders and Robin is the high energy cheerleader that chill punk rock chicks hate.
Jacquese says he would like to see Robin and Frankie get out their aggressions by wrestling...not for his personal enjoyment, but so Robin and Frankie can try and be friends. Robin seems clueless to the fact that Frankie dislikes her and says there has never been a time in her life when someone hasn't liked her.
The girls go to the pet store to where Frankie looks for a pet. She checks out a Burmese python and Cameran is not happy. The pet store owner brings out his full size Burmese python that weighs 220 pounds and the girls freak out. Despite the fact that she'll need a freakin' zoo to house this snake in a few years, Frankie decides to go with the python anyway. When she arrives home with the snake, she puts the live feeder mouse in her Hello Kitty-themed tin and, unbeknownst to her, she is slowly suffocating Stuart Little. Thankfully, the mouse survives, but when she tries to feed it to her pet snake, the snake doesn't go for it. Robin asks if she can keep the mouse since the snake has spared him from certain death. Frankie theorizes that Robin wants to save the cute little feeder mouse because it's a dramatic situation that draws attention to her.
Meanwhile, back at the house, Brad gets an e-mail from his parents asking him to move out when he returns from San Diego. Perviously, Brad got into an accident on his motorcycle and his parents are tired of his reckless behavior. Brad's day gets worse when he gets a box of his clothes from his parents and his bills. Only pulling in $200 a week from working on the boat (and probably spending a lot of that on partying), Brad does not know how he's going to pay his bills. Brad talks to his father and tells him that he's not sure if he wants to move "downtown" because he's not sure what he wants to do with his life. His father encourages him to start making some decisions. Brad narrates that he got an accounting degree because he thought his dad would think it was prestigious.
Jacquese notes that the snake and the mouse are like Frankie and Robin. Frankie says if Robin keeps playing up the whole symbolism, she's gonna feed the little sucker to her snake.
Brad tells Randy and Cameran that good grades and the amount of money you make means everything to his father. Brad doesn't feel like he and his father ever bonded as friends. Brad just wants to find a career that will make him happy in the future. When he talks to his mom, she suggests that he sell his bike. Brad narrates that no matter what's going on in his life, nothing matters when he is on that bike.
Robin sets up a little home for Marilyn the Mouse and Frankie is still rolling her eyes at Robin's need to take care of this mouse. Robin tells the other roommates that the only way she can get along with Frankie is if she agrees with everything she says, but she worries that eventually she'll blow up.
When the girls discuss what type of girl Randy likes to date, Frankie insults Robin by insinuating that she likes one night stands. "She drives me nuts," Frankie screams to Jacquese later. Robin says the only thing she and Robin have in common is that they both like pink, they like to party and they like Marilyn Monroe. Jacquese thinks that at some point, their dislike for each other will turn physical.
