Sarah and MJ get into a heated discussion about Mel Gibson and The Passion of the Christ. She feels the movie is anti-Semitic and becomes frustrated that MJ does not appear to be informed on the subject. Meanwhile, MJ is frustrated by Sarah's frustration. Sarah believes MJ is taking the conversation too personally and can't appreciate hearing someone else's views. This makes for some major tension between the two. Angry, Sarah narrates that she thinks the ideal woman for MJ is a blond who doesn't have much of an opinion because she doesn't believe MJ has respect for strong females.
In da club, MJ meets Kim, a girl who knows some of the girls he went to college with. MJ says goodbye to Kim, but struggles with whether or not he should hit on her further. He decides to go for it and buys her a rose, but he leaves before she can even say thank you. In the cab, he is proud of himself for being able to resist Kim, since he has recently decided to remain committed to being with Ashley.
Back at home, MJ wants to tell Ashley how much she means to him, but he can't get on the phone because Shavonda is hogging it again. He presses his face against the phone door to get Shavonda to hurry it up. Eventually he comes in and sits down next to her and asks her how much longer she will be. When Shavonda tells him ten more minutes, he says he's not going to be rude, but in ten more minutes she better be off the phone. "Is that a threat?" Shavonda wonders. "Yes it is," MJ says.
Shavonda bursts into tears because she doesn't like being disrespected. "White a-country bleeping bleep," Shavonda curses. Two wrongs don't make a right, Shavonda honey. Shavonda then goes to Sarah to relay the story. Turns out Vonda had a combative relationship with her ex-boyfriend and MJ's drunken "threat" rubbed her the wrong way.
MJ comes up to her room to find out what's bothering her. Shavonda explains and he apologizes, adding that it's not a big enough deal for her to cry about. "Don't dismiss my feelings," Shavonda snaps. Eventually they hug it out and all is well.
Meanwhile, Willie gets trashed at Pure, but has to wake up at 7 a.m. for work. When his taxi arrives at the house, Willie doesn't have enough cash to pay the bill, so he calls to Karamo to help him out. Next thing they know, the cops are knocking on the door to make sure Willie will be paying the bill. Karamo takes care of it.
The next morning, Willie decides to blow off work because he is still drunk and can't manage to even get out of bed. The rest of the crew goes to the Northern Home to do some yard work. While they are working, the gang bitches about Willie's irresponsibility. Later when the gang meets with Laura, Willie tells her right out that he had a late, drunken night and he apologizes.
On the bus ride back from a meeting for their job, Sarah is offended that MJ refers to her as "sweetheart." "I just never have had anyone talk to me that way," Sarah says as she stirs the pot. MJ has no clue where all this animosity is coming from and it completely baffles him.
Over lunch, MJ asks Sarah to just be upfront with her about when says anything that offends her. Sarah agrees and knows that deep down MJ's a good person and just wants everyone to be happy.
