Doctor Breen is seen exiting Kleiner's apartment, having just made another demand for overdue rent. Kleiner promises to pay as soon as he can, but confesses to Barney he has no idea how he'll come by the money and asks his roomate to talk Lamarr for a walk while he figures it out.

During their walk, Barney ponders how he could help Kleiner out and then notices Cubbage selling tickets for what appears to be a girlie revue.

Kleiner, worried by how late it's getting with no sign of Lamarr comes looking for the pair, and his attention is drawn by the sounds of whooping and cheers. On entering the building, he is horrified to discover Lamarr 'pole-dancing' between two ladies in their underwear in a red-lit room. The episode ends with Kleiner nursing Lamarr under one arm dragging Barney out by the collar, with Barney protesting how much money they were making and Kleiner reminding him that "There are limits, Barney - there are limits!"
