First Aired: July 24, 2002

Vangie (Rachel Ticotin) just might have hit a home run with the new jacket she has designed: a baseball star is wearing it and a major apparel company wants to distribute it. That's exciting stuff, but it'll take lots of work (and time away from Larry and the kids). It also involves a major financial risk. In flashbacks, Vangie recalls a similar risk Berta (Sonia Braga) took when she took in some piecework. Juana: Rita Moreno. Larry: John Brennan.
