Toni and Maya get into another argument before an evening out, in part because Toni refuses to believe that Maya can get the girls into an exclusive club.
Joan grows tired of the clingy Marcus and plans to break up with him, but only winds up complicating the situation by having "pity sex" with him.
The girls try to help her out by bombarding Marcus with negative facts about Joan in the hopes that he will dump her.
Her friends, egotistical Toni Childs, and lazy 27-year-old college student named Lynn, have to cheer Joan up and get her a man, with the help of Maya whom Toni calls "ghetto".
Joan Clayton, a successful attorney, prepares to celebrate her 29th birthday (although she claims to be 26 to make her achievements seem more impressive).
Joan, Toni and Lynn set up dates with men they met over the Internet.
Lynn's guy never shows up (his parole was denied), while Toni rejects hers because his skin is too dark.
Although conspiracy theorist Maya warns that he will turn out to be a serial killer, Joan is pleased with her date, Marcus.
Joan freaks out after discovering that Marcus wears a girdle because he has large hips, prompting Toni (who had taken heat from the girls over her treatment of her date) to take her to task for her behavior.
Maya shows up and easily gets herself, Joan, Lynn and William past the doorman.
Joan convinces the reluctant Maya to also get Toni into the club.
Meanwhile, Toni constantly clashes with Maya, Joan's assistant.
