Recap[]

Brandon’s voice-over relates the frustrations and disappointments of the group adjusting to life after college. Steve has accepted an honorary, non-paying, position as alumni advisor for his fraternity, Valerie was swindled out of all her money and Brandon has discovered that living with Kelly points up the vast difference between being in love and living together. Kelly comes across old letters and cards from Brandon’s former girlfriends and expresses jealousy. Brandon reminds her that they both had a life before they became involved. Brandon receives a phone call with disappointing news about his most promising job application. At the beach apartment David tells Donna that his lease is up on the Hollywood Hills house and he has to make a decision about where to live. Donna says she is not ready to live together because her parents will not approve. David snaps that she is an adult now and has a right to do what she wants; Donna remains undecided. In the Walsh kitchen Valerie tells Steve she is interviewing for a job this morning. She confides to Steve that Brandon got turned down for the job at The Times newspaper. Steve tells Brandon he is sorry to hear about the rejection and Brandon realizes that Valerie cannot keep a secret. Over breakfast at The Peach Pit Donna and her father, Dr. Martin, discuss finances. She finds it awkward accepting his money now that she is out of college. Her father insists and tells Donna that her mother has recommended her to a friend, VANESSA MARKLEY, who is looking to hire an assistant in her fashion photography/design business.

Kelly continues to be bothered by the package of Brandon’s old love letters. Brandon suggests the two of them need a vacation but Kelly is scheduled to start her volunteer work at the Foundation next week. At the Little League Soccer Field, Steve cheers on five-year-old Erin at her game. A smaller boy being roughed unnecessarily distracts him. As ZACK runs off the field crying Steve stops the boy to give him encouragement. Zack’s mother rushes over implying Steve could be dangerous. CARLY REYNOLDS scoffs at Steve’s advise that perhaps her son needs some encouragement in how to fight back and that his father should teach him how to defend himself. Steve is embarrassed when Erin informs him Zack doesn’t have a father. At the After Dark office David is trying to extract a profit out of the sea of red ink. David is dismayed when MARCY, the new waitress, models the sexy, yet expensive, new uniforms Donna has designed. After soccer Steve notices Carly and Zack having car trouble and offers his help. Carly snaps at him that first he thinks he is a child psychologist and now he is also an auto mechanic? Steve ignores her and recommends how to correct her car trouble. She reluctantly follows his instructions and her car immediately starts. Kelly and Donna are surprised to find Valerie at her new job as a department store perfume girl. They promise to keep Valerie’s secret. David solicits Donna advice from Steve and Brandon. Brandon reminds David that having slept with him once has probably given Donna terrible guilt and, coupled with her strict upbringing, he should back off a bit and give Donna some more time.

Brandon says he is thinking of throwing a surprise birthday party for Kelly. Kelly lends moral support while Donna buys her first birth control pills at the drugstore. As Donna’s mother, Felice is about to uncover her secret Kelly saves the moment by pretending the pills are for her. At an outdoor café Donna meets with Vanessa Markley. She is complimentary of Donna’s portfolio, commenting that her designs are a bit immature but show evidence of talent. Vanessa hires Donna on the spot and she will start with a major photo shoot in Hawaii in three days. Donna is left stunned by her first encounter with the whirlwind fashion profession. At the After Dark Brandon suggests to Valerie that she refrain from criticizing David about his managerial skills. She finds a dejected David and apologizes. Valerie reminds him that she was once half-owner and knows a pending disaster when she sees it coming. She proposes buying back into the club, fifty-fifty as before and will work with no salary until her percentage is paid off. David does not want to risk jeopardizing his relationship with Donna. Valerie says she will talk to Donna but David remains skeptical. Donna enters and wants David to come to Hawaii with her. David is persuaded and suggests they all take a week off and go to the islands. Steve says he’ll dig into his emergency savings and Brandon shrugs and hopes he can persuade Kelly. Valerie walks away murmuring she has too much work.

At the Walsh house Valerie has a change of heart and decides to go to Hawaii. She negotiates with Steve to lend her money for the trip and will share his room… with separate beds only. Brandon tries to distract Kelly from the love letters and suggests the Hawaii trip – Kelly reiterates that she cannot postpone the start of her new job and suggests that maybe they need a vacation apart. Steve discovers Carly is a waitress while on a date with Marcy, the pretty yet shallow cocktail waitress. When Steve inquires about her job she snaps at him that some people work for a living. Marcy and Carly get into a verbal name-calling contest. As the manager approaches Carly has dumped a martini on Steve and she is fired on the spot. Brandon, Valerie and Steve are ready to leave for the airport and Brandon is still trying to convince Kelly to join them. With a kiss he leaves Kelly to ponder whether she has made the right decision.
