Rose has been nominated for St. Olaf Woman of the Year. But her excitement quickly turns to despair when she thinks her accomplishments aren’t worth a hill of beans. Dorothy and Blanche punch up some of the material in her resume to make her sound truly heroic. They get nervous when the Woman of the Year blue ribbon panel comes to Miami to verify the details of her achievements. Rose says that she can’t take credit for them. Dorothy plays it off as modesty by Rose. It works and Rose is proclaimed St. Olaf Woman of the Year.
During their hellish journey to St. Olaf which takes multiple days, Dorothy and Blanche try and tell Rose the truth but never seem to able to. They finally do and Rose is furious. She can’t accept the award under such dishonest circumstances and the group returns home. Rose forgives them and realizes they were just trying to help.
