Sharon seeks independence and more money for stuff to maintain a "with it" image, so she takes a part-time job at Lifecycles. She soon finds out that working isn't as glam as she thought it was. When she's booked to work on the same day as the ski trip she's been saving up for - Sharon fakes being sick. Getting caught and being fired is humiliating - but it makes Sharon realize she doesn't really want that kind of responsibility yet. Meanwhile, Connor is on a mission to "simplify" his life and get off the consumer track.
