Dwayne is applying for a summer management position at a company in Japan. He seems like the perfect man for this job, so much so, his friends are already planning a celebration. Colonel Taylor suggests that Dwayne invite the firm's Vice President to his home to clinch the deal. Whitley goes all out to prepare a traditional Japanese dinner. When the doorbell rings, it is not the VP, but Dwayne's old girlfriend Kinu who's now representing the company. The dinner goes fine, but the next day's interview doesn't. Kinu tells him another, more qualified candidate was selected instead. Everyone now thinks Dwayne lost the job because Kinu felt jilted, but Dwayne knows the truth; for once he just wasn't the best. It's a hard pill for Dwayne to swallow, but Whitley helps him through it.
