At Katchoo's exhibition David tries to get her to drink Pepsi, but she has already had three stiff drinks, not so much that she is nervous, but because she is in a big fight with Francine. Katchoo goes off in search of a bar.
The influential Caroline Hobbs of the New Hobbs Foundation Museum just misses Katchoo. David says it's not a good time to meet Katchoo because she is a little tense right now. Caroline gives David her card, which knocks his socks off, because he's an art student and he knows how important she is. Caroline asks David to tell Katchoo she is trying to meet her.
Freddy and Casey show up looking for Katchoo, but they see only David. "I didn't come here to talk to the house boy," Freddy says, "where's the artiste? Where's Choovanski?" David demonstrates infinite patience as he steers them to Katchoo.
At the bar Katchoo yells out for some whiskey. A British man says he likes a woman who likes whiskey. She says, "So do I." Freddy shows up and Katchoo makes fun of his goatee, which is so original...not.
David tells Casey the girls haven't talked to each other for two weeks. Casey starts to come on to David. She asks, "How does one very good looking guy manage to live with two women and keep them both happy?" But David is distracted by screaming. It sounds like Francine. He runs to find out why.
David, Freddy, and Casey find Francine in a separate gallery staring at three huge, sensual paintings of herself. Casey goes, "Francine is it really you?" Freddy goes, "It's like a dream, a dream come true!" David goes, "Oh man, this is trouble!" Francine goes, "I'll kill her!"
Katchoo shows up. Francine points right at her and says, "How could you do this to me?" Katchoo is happy that Francine is at least talking to her now. The paintings are just idealized images of what Katchoo knows best. And she knows Francine best. Francine doesn't want to hear the art talk. She can't stand that everyone will see her nude, just like at the school play.
"Just because you have the ability to do something doesn't give you the right, Katina! I have the ability to post those pictures of you and Darcy on the Internet, do you think I should do it?" David asks, "Katchoo and my sister? What pictures?" Then Francine launches into David, and blames him for all this. Francine is throwing blame around like wild shotgun blasts.
By now a whole crowd has shown up to see what the commotion is about. Francine complains she's not a person anymore, she's just another work of art for everyone to stare at. Then she walks away, and tells Katchoo to just stay away from her and leave her alone. Katchoo tells the curator to take the paintings down, but he is reluctant to do so because they are the best ones in the whole exhibit.
Caroline Hobbs finally meets with Katchoo alone. She says she has the ways and means to bring the whole art world to Katchoo's feet, to make art history, and all she has to do is say yes.
David takes Katchoo home. Francine has already packed, she's going home to mother in Tennessee. David tries to stop her. "You don't want to do this! It's crazy!" But Francine remains adamant. He takes her bags out to the car. Francine pushes her way past Katchoo, who stands in the doorway.
At four in the morning David is still up, watching the static on TV and thinking about things. He gets up, finds the patio door open, and goes outside. Katchoo is sitting there in the dark and the pouring rain. "Do you think God hates me?" No. "Then why doesn't he kill me?" David scoops her up and tells her he loves her, over and over, with each step as he takes her back into the house.
