After delivering Steve to his door, the unlicensed David accidentally damages the car, prompting a now sober Steve to begin a frantic search for the culprit. Meanwhile, Brandon connects with the withdrawn but beautiful hostess, Marianne, and asks her for a date. Used to wealthy rich brats, she is struck by his boyish good looks and undemanding nature.
