Nothing transpired between them, but Lenny, who is now in a bad situation, advises Miriam not to get involved again. He’s annoyed that he’s been placed into such a foreign environment, and it’s clearly disturbed him. He even mentions having a daughter. they’ve never discussed it. Lenny eventually hails a cab and returns home. Meanwhile, Susie’s business is taking off, and Sophie has sent her a variety of baskets as a token of her gratitude for rekindling her profession.

Sophie is doing great and is presenting on-air as she desires. Abe and Rose are smitten with her. Sophie is to blame for ruining her job, but her parents dismiss her fears. Meanwhile, Miriam’s refrigerator breaks down, and Zelda is irritated that she wasn’t informed about it the night before. In the living room, however, there is a quarrel between Abe and Rose over who should have the space to work. Of course, the latter is now acting as a matchmaker, so she is officially employed. Susie’s office becomes a flurry of gifts, all of which are from Sophie. Susie, on the other hand, has had enough and calls her butler, who has returned, and instructs him to take them back. It doesn’t help that Dinah’s kids are also causing havoc in the office. It’s definitely getting hot in here. Miriam calls Moishe at the same moment and asks him to postpone her last payment. This isn’t going to work out this time, but it doesn’t stop her from hanging up.

However, things at the club take a turn for the worst, putting Miriam back on the streets. The reality is, the talent backstage is ecstatic about the shift in clientele, and women tip more generously, assisting the staff. Not only that, but drink sales have also increased. The misogyny may be smelled from distance, but the numbers speak for themselves. Susie sees an opportunity and believes that since she’s the one who changed things, Miriam should get a cut of the bar tab. The owner agrees to think about it and contact you. Susie advises her not to read the article since Roy Dunham has written about Miriam yet again, despite the fact that the show was actually rather good.

Miriam, on the other hand, refuses to give up and marches over to the newspaper, prepared to face Dunham. But it turns out he’s a woman hiding under a man’s guise. Miriam, she believes, is a wealth of information. As Miriam tries to play the feminist card, Dunham counters by stating that being a woman in journalism is difficult and that writing about Miriam and all of her faults and struggles as a comedy is helping her advance in her own career. Miriam is mute for a long time before walking away. When Miriam returns home, Sophie is waiting for her in her living room, amusing the staff. She requires her assistance in appointing Susie as her manager. This explains why she won’t let her alone with the gifts. Miriam, on the other hand, is enraged and resentful of Sophie. Sophie, on the other hand, is well aware that she is in debt as a result of her hiring of a private investigator, and she invites her to appear on her show. As a result, Miriam would be able to earn a good living. She’ll also prevent Dunham from writing articles on her. All of this, of course, would allow bridges to be repaired and Sophie to resume her role as Susie’s client. To be honest, it’s a fairly fantastic bargain, and Miriam is seriously considering it.

Meanwhile, Mei arrives at the club and informs Joel that she is expecting a child. Joel offers to assist her and to be there for her. He also promises her that she will become a doctor, despite the fact that a no-show Alfie at the club is causing her problems right now. Susie catches up with him, but he’s spinning out, unsure if he’ll be able to complete the job. Susie agrees to rebook him, giving him another 24 hours to organize his affairs and improve his act.  Miriam is invited to her Small Business Women’s Society, where she discovers the truth about the basket bearing the word stop engraved on it. These women want her to quit arranging matches, claiming that they’ve already carved out a lucrative portion of the pie for themselves and that there isn’t enough to go around. They even use Miriam’s strip club appearance as a form of blackmail to force her to stop. We eventually witness a little more stand-up when Miriam speaks up and performs her act, before Sophie steps in and decides to riff, infringing on her set. Things quickly deteriorate. When Sophie brings up the Shy Baldwin gig and Miriam discusses her drug addiction, their jokes go pretty vicious. Thankfully, they’re stopped before things get out of hand, but this is going to be a major headache in the future.
