|List of ''A Different World'' seasons/episodes|
After her clothes were stolen in the home invasion, Whitley buys an expensive suit for a job interview with the intention of returning it. But she stains the suit before she can, does not get the job, and is forced to file for unemployment. Charmaine's long-distance relationship with Lance ends with a missed train and a phone call.
Whitley is up for a job interview and wants a new outfit. Without Dwayne's knowledge she borrows his credit card and buys a $700 suit, intending to return it. A wine spill on the suit forces her to keep it and search for ways to pay Dwayne back. Down at The Pit, Charmaine is running her mouth about boyfriend Lance's upcoming visit, and frankly, Lena is tired of hearing about it.
When Lance phones and breaks up with Charmaine, Lena finally befriends her in her time of need. Meanwhile, Freddie and Ron convince a reluctant Whitley to file for unemployment. At first, Whitley arrogantly goes down to the unemployment office and gets nowhere. The second day on line, she's more humble, but still can't get money. When Dwayne returns from his business trip, he finds Whitley has sold their couch and refrigerator for cash to pay him back!
