After arranging a blood drive at work, Maya fills the nurse, Tisha, in on her history with the magazine. When complaining about her father hiring a beautiful but inept young writer, Maya gets overly excited and faints. Hoping to take advantage of Maya's condition, Finch tries playing a practical joke. Maya awakes in time to stop him, leaving Finch to use his turn with Tisha to recall how he was hired by Jack after losing his job as a movie theater usher. When Elliott arrives, Tisha claims to be a big fan of his work. In response, he fills her in on how Jack hired him off the street just as he was about to give up on his dream of being a fashion photographer. Meanwhile, Maya again loses consciousness after Elliott graphically describes his own blood donation. As Maya regains consciousness in time to help the hair-brained Shannon, Nina shows up for her turn with Tisha. Asked about her history with the magazine, Nina remembers her own fall from grace as a fashion model which ended with Jack finding her working as a mermaid at a boat show. Finally, despite her frustration in having to work with Shannon, Maya thanks her dad for rescuing her from a dismal job just like he did with everyone.
When she decides to attend another celebrity event, Nina throws out her invitation to designer Oskar Milos' fashion show. Retrieving it from the trash, Finch persuades Maya to join him while masquerading as Nina. As Finch ingratiates himself with the fashion world celebrities, Maya is less than guarded about her opinions of Milos's new work. But she's stunned when her candid criticism appears in the next day's newspaper attributed to Nina. Meanwhile, Jack decides to help a reluctant Elliott get a date. When Nina insists she wasn't at the party, Maya steps forward to take responsibility for the misunderstanding. And wondering just how much damage she's has done, Maya is surprised when her father reveals that Milos has withdrawn almost $4 million in advertising from the magazine. So to make things right, she insists on apologizing in person. And upon arriving at the studio, she claims her remarks were misquoted.
