Johnny, deep in debt, he who has never been able to manage money let alone care too much about finances such as paying bills, comes into a one time only windfall of $24,000. His approach to this windfall is true to the way he was before he had the money in that he doesn't seem to grasp how to manage it, he basically wasting over $1,000 the first day alone on meaningless stuff, not really seeming to realize at that pace he will soon once again be broke. The other staffers, but especially Venus, try to convince Johnny to make wise investments with the money he has left, they eventually able to convince him to invest in real estate, namely a condominium unit in Gone with the Wind Estates, one of the station's advertisers. Through the process of being a home owner, Johnny quickly comes to a realization about himself, that realization which may come at a price. Written by Huggo
