Well, Sushi restaurants are hard to deal with and Miranda has never coped around attractive men. All not helped by the fact that Penny has left Miranda's father and moved in with her. You are never going to feel good when your mother tells everyone she is washing your control pants. She nearly gives up when she meets a woman who fills her with a new 'girl power' confidence. Can she get the new chef and maintain the new her?
