Plot Overview

Elaine drives a very rude costumer, who accuses her cheating on the fare. Back at the garage, Elaine invites Alex to come to a party in her apartment, which she gives for the people from the art gallery where she works, but she doesn't want him to tell anyone that they both work as cab drivers, because she is embarrassed. But Alex says he is okay to lie about Elaine's occupation, but he is not okay to lie about him being a cab driver. The rest of the crew sort of invite themselves to the party after hearing about it. But Elaine explicitly says that Louie isn't allowed to come. Elaine makes Alex come over a little earlier so he is the first at the party and he can give her some moral support. Then the guests start to pour in.
