Now that Beatrice has achieved some fame, Dodo comes up with the next idea which will make Beatrice become even more famous. That idea requires Beatrice to look as beautiful as possible. In Beatrice's makeover, which causes her some physical discomfort, is there a point of going overboard? Beatrice's fame has led to thoughts with Lillian of suicide. She receives what she believes is a sign to make her reconsider that decision. That sign takes her to Lucky Chang's, an illegal Chinese gambling parlor. Her activities at Chang's will make her look at life and money in a whole new light. And Frederick is happily receiving bribes in turn for political favors in his bid to become President. Aside from the bribes, he still has time, or at least thoughts, of self-pleasure to what most red-blooded Newport heterosexual men are using.
