Gaby surprises Carlos with a proposition for afternoon sex, but is denied when Carlos calls her out for wanting something from him.
Indeed she does - a ski home in Aspen. He tells her no because their funds are tied up in other things. She gets suspicious about what Carlos has done with “their money”, and goes to their business manager to get the scoop. After Gaby assists him with grabbing her ass, so that she can tell Carlos on him, he admits that Carlos has loaned $50,000 to one of their neighbors because they are broke.
Over at the neighbors, Susan and Mike have inherited a Yamaha piano from Susan’s dead aunt, and Susan decides that she wants to flaunt how much it “cost” to Gaby. Mike, uncomfortable with this, asks her not to.
Gaby, secretly knowing that Susan and Mike are flat broke, brings them pity groceries, and sees the piano Susan “bought”. Gaby confronts Susan about the money on loan from Carlos, and to her surprise finds out that Susan has been in the dark on this one.
Together, they come up with a plot to embarrass both of their men and bring the truth to the surface.
