The bathroom that Gloria and her girls use has plumbing problems and feces coming out of the shower drains. Vee's posse go head to head against Gloria's Latinas when they infiltrate the Ghetto bathroom. Fig, the assistant warden, refuses to fix the Latina showers due to budget problems, and limits the shower time to 30 seconds as a fix. As tensions rise between the blacks and the Latinas, Vee and Gloria make a deal in order to calm things down. Meanwhile, Cal and Piper's mom visit Piper in the prison and inform her that the reason her father hasn't come to visit is because her grandmother is dying. Piper is devastated, and asks Healy for a furlough. Boo and Nicky continue their contest over who can score the most points with their sexual conquests. While Boo goes after the "small pointers", Nicky spends her time trying to sack Fischer, one of the prison guards, to no avail. In flashbacks, it is revealed that Gloria was a victim of domestic violence, and that she was arrested for committing fraud with food stamps traded at the store she runs.
