Plot

I cannot stop staring at her giant breasts.
EndQuote
— Amy
At the store front, Dina instructs the staff to be extra vigilant and it isn't apparent why until Glenn stands beside her in a hot dog costume – it's Halloween. All the staff are in costume except for Dina who they make fun of and call a "Booge" (Boo + Scrooge). Dina doesn't care until she sees that Sandra is dressed like her right down to the name tag. Everyone's delighted and when Sandra offers to stand next to Dina all day, Dina grabs a costume. She returns to continue her speech in a sexy policewoman outfit that reveals a lot, including her large breasts. The staff cannot stop staring at her and barely respond when she asks if anyone is listening to her. Halloween signs and decorations around the store are shown. (♫ Louis Edwards and Henry Parsley – Halloween Funk ♫)



S02E06-Dina in outfit addressing staff
Are you guys even listening to me?
Back at work, Jonah and Garrett are talking about Dina's costume, trying not to mention the obvious when Amy comments on Dina's breasts and how hot she looks. Garrett says you have to factor in Dina's personality but he still seems drawn to her. Mateo is ordering lunch from Taylor when he is surprised by Jeff Sutin who is in town because of a stabbing in another Cloud 9 store. He asks Mateo on a date. Myrtle cozies up to a man dressed as the Grim Reaper. (♫ Anita Baker – Caught Up in the Rapture ♫) Amy, Jonah and Glenn are handing out candy to kids when Dina interrupts and gives a wildly excessive warning to the parents about their kids accepting candy from strangers. Jonah and Amy distract her by lying that they saw "sketchy types" heading for the Warehouse.



HalloweenTheft8
Death is afraid of her.
In the Warehouse, Dina finds the storage cage unlocked and asks Janet who did it. Janet just shrugs. Jonah is assigned to the jewelry counter with Cheyenne and they start to bond by gossiping about staff members. Dina marches to customer services where Garrett is giving an announcement. Seeing her, he becomes distracted. Dina grabs the mic and tells the staff they can't leave the store due to a theft. Her breasts are at Garrett’s eye level and she comments that he looks sick. All staff are gathered in the Break Room where Dina announces that the irregular produce has been stolen and no staff may leave until she's found the culprit. She intends to interrogate everyone. Soda cans are stacked to look like a pumpkin. (♫ John Carpenter – Halloween Theme ♫)



HalloweenTheft12
No one leaves!
In succession, Dina questions Amy, Glenn (who can't sit down in his hot dog costume despite numerous attempts), Mateo (who is sweating because of his secret relationship with Jeff), Sandra (who Dina says doesn't have the courage or smarts to steal), Jonah (who questions himself), Cheyenne (who makes an inane comment) and Brett (who is dressed as a robber prompting Dina to say she doesn't trust him). (♫ Gnarls Barkley – Gone Daddy Gone ♫) The staff sans Dina meet in the Warehouse and Amy tries to get the thief to confess so they can all go home. To ease things, she recalls how she shoplifted as a kid which prompts others to reveal secrets. However, no one confesses to the theft. A man with a painted face rubs a towel against his cheek. (♫ Gary Wright – Dream Weaver ♫)



S02E06-Brett as a robber
There's something about you I don't trust.
Garrett asks Jonah to cover for him as he can't be around Dina anymore. He's torn between her hot outfit and her abrasive personality. Amy tells Mateo and Glenn that the Chesterfield Store hasn't thrown out their irregular produce so they can collect it and pass it off as being misplaced in their store. They arrive at Chesterfield and Glenn is immediately critical of the store and wanders off while Amy and Mateo go to produce. Dina corners Garrett in the men's bathroom and asks why he's been avoiding her and acting weird. Amy and Mateo collect irregular produce while Glenn runs into the store manager Bobby. Glenn watches Bobby interact cheerfully with his assistant manager Kelly and is amazed, then jealous. Cheyenne tells Jonah that the staff thinks he has a crush on Amy which he tries to deny.



S02E06-Chesterfield asst manager Kelly
She was so nice to you!
While driving back to the store, Amy gets a call from her daughter Emma. Emma wants to go to a friend's house instead of trick or treating with her Mom. Dina interrogates Garrett and leans over the table so that her cleavage is right in his line of sight. Garrett breaks down and admits to stealing the fruit (even though he didn't) so he can leave. Amy meets Jonah in the Break Room and is depressed that Emma isn't going trick or treating. Behind Amy's back, Elias is making suggestive hand gestures at Jonah. Glenn interrupts Dina and Garrett with the fruit. Dina is suspicious and since Garrett admitted to stealing it, she says no one is leaving until she finds out the truth. Glenn over-rides her and says the investigation is over. A man in a Kyle costume shops. (♫ Kool and the Gang – Get Down On It ♫) At the loading dock, Mateo meets Jeff in his car for their date. As they pull away, Cheyenne sees them leave. Amy, Dina and Garrett agree to go with Jonah to see "Nosferatu".

  • Goof: After Glenn gets angry at Dina for ruining his candy game with some children, Glenn turns to Amy for help. Amy is holding a sucker in her left hand and a bowl of candy in her right.
