"Magazine Profile": A reporter, Cynthia, from corporate magazine "Stratus" comes to the store. Jonah impresses the reporter which has a negative impact on Glenn. Cynthia comes onto to Jonah in the Stock Room and Jonah goes to her motel room after his shift is done.

"Shots and Salsa": Jonah believes that he is a helpful person and to demonstrate, offers to help Tate the pharmacist carry some flu shot boxes. Tate takes full advantage and tells Jonah to retrieve more boxes while he gets a coffee. At the Pharmacy, Tate is bragging to Jonah, makes him his assistant and tells him to prep the first patient. Tate leaves and tells Jonah to give a biker his flu shot. Jonah sterilizes the arm of the biker and with shaking hands, tries to give him the shot. The biker yells at him and is then seen running out, holding his arm and crying. An elderly woman in the line-up asks Jonah how much longer the wait will be. He brings her to the front of the line and when other customers protest, she makes a racist remark. After watching a training video on racism, there's only one flu shot left and many customers so Tate abandons Jonah. His shift over, Jonah backs away from the angry pharmacy customers and leaves. Dina plays guitar and sings a Mexican love song at a salsa sample booth while looking suggestively at Jonah to the point he is uncomfortable. In the parking lot, Amy is sitting at a patio set eating salsa and chips and is joined by Jonah.

However, he manages to unintentionally insult Garrett's disability and implies Amy looks pregnant. As Cheyenne talks about how hard it is to work while pregnant and how she got pregnant because she couldn't get a ride to planned parenthood, Jonah offers her a ride in the future which prompts Glenn to express his abortion views. This starts an argument with Dina which Jonah watches, wishing he'd never started talking. In the store, Garrett and Amy look at a mannequin which they think looks like Jonah. Jonah thinks it looks like Tom Cruise so they tease him about his ego. In the Break Room, the staff have dressed the mannequin to look like Jonah complete with vest and name tag. They affect Jonah's mannerisms and sayings with the mannequin and though he tries to join in the fun, it falls flat. After Jonah calls Amy the "responsible one", she re-doubles her efforts to prank him and to show she is fun. She dresses the mannequin in various costumes and poses. Jonah finally snaps and carries the mannequin into the Stock Room and tries to destroy it in a compacter. In the Stock Room, Jonah has over-loaded the compacter which has tripped the alarm. Glenn sees the mannequin legs sticking out and freaks out thinking Jonah has put a person in. Jonah tries a feeble prank with a blonde mannequin. Garrett and Amy catch Jonah in the Break Room dressing up a sex doll that looks like Amy. The doll is partially naked and Jonah looks like a pervert.

Jonah accidentally looses the forklift into the store where it chases Mateo.

Following Amy's direction, Jonah chats with a man who is checking out an expensive BBQ. He calls his wife who turns out to be Amy, though Jonah doesn't know this. Amy doesn't have time to talk to Adam so Jonah points out that he tried to tell her about the buying the BBQ and convinces him to make the purchase.

Dina announces she is stepping down as assistant manager to pursue "personal matters" and Jonah realizes his rejection excuse has backfired. In the Break Room, Garrett loudly asks Jonah if he knows what Dina's personal matters are. He fakes ignorance and as everyone speculates. Jonah approaches Dina at the makeup counter but before he can say he's not interested in a relationship, she asks him to her place for dinner. She then says her grandma died and before Jonah can interject she confesses that she thought he was stringing her along and that he'd be crazy if he did. Jonah laughs uncomfortably but can't muster the courage to let her how he really feels. Jonah is working a checkout counter when Dina shows up with items to buy for their date. They include risotto, chocolate and two boxes of condoms. Jonah stares at her in shock. Jonah asks Dina for a talk in private.

He drops his phone which then plays the breakup message and Dina walks out. In the parking lot, Jonah catches Dina at her truck and apologies but Dina isn't bothered by what happened. Jonah is surprised but then Marcus shows up - he's going to Dina's for dinner.

Steve, a labor relations consultant has a session with the staff the next morning. Jonah tries to ask about paid maternity leave but Steve deflects his question. At the end of Steve's presentation, Jonah again tries to ask about paid maternity leave to which Steve replies with glib answers.

Staff are still angry at Dina for not siding with them in the strike so Jonah offers to help Dina get the staff to like her more. Jeff asks Amy to gather the staff in the Break Room which delays them from looking for Marcus' thumb. He says that things look good in the store and asks what corporate can do better. Jonah tries to make suggestions a number of times but Amy cuts him off pretending she wants to get back to work but really wanting to find the thumb.

In the Break Room, Dina explains the situation and everyone blames Jonah for denying so many people service at the gun counter. At the store front, the customer who threatened to call the NRA is standing on a check-out counter and speaking to the NRA protesters. He decries Jonah's actions which prompts Jonah to also stand on a check-out counter and defend his right to free speech. Jonah offers to work the gun counter properly. Amy realizes his offer is because he feels sorry for her so she doesn't want him to work the counter and they start arguing.

Lydia gets set to leave and tells Mateo and Jonah that any dogs not adopted will be killed. They decide to put aside their differences to get all the dogs adopted.

He creates a betting pool on which temp will quit next and bets on Isaac. He then actively starts to try and make Isaac quit which prompts other staff to do the same with the temps they bet on.

They are both waiting for the other to go to the bathroom. Jonah films the staff in the Break Room nursing their sickness until Brett throws away his camera.

Amy is on the phone arguing with her husband Adam when Jonah models the cargo pants for her.

Amy wants to spend the money on necessities for her family until Jonah convinces her to pamper herself. Amy and Jonah enter the Break Room to be greeted by everyone wanting to know about the money. Everyone looks at her expectantly and she agrees with one of the asks – to spend the money upgrading the Break Room which disappoints Jonah. Amy and a few staff are shopping for items for the Break Room and Jonah is trying to make her feel bad for not being selfish. He makes several very unnecessary purchases to get Amy to stop trying to appease everyone. Dressed as a mime, Glenn finds Jonah stocking shelves and performs an act. Jonah tops Glenn's act and when a child who is watching cheers, it angers Glenn.

"Rebranding": During a product rebranding, corporate VP Rex visits the store. As Jonah deals with a customer, Rex recognizes him from their college days. Jonah explains how he ended up working at the store and Rex starts to tell Amy about Jonah in college including his nickname "Iceman". Rex shows a video of Jonah making a business presentation in college which evokes a lot of teasing from Glenn, Amy and Garrett. Rex mentions that Jonah's enrolment is still active and he can go back to school. This brings concern from Amy and Glenn. In Glenn's Office, Jonah is asked by Glenn to sign a new contract which he finds has a 30 year term. Glenn gets frantic when Jonah won't sign even promising to fire others to keep him. Amy dares Jonah to cancel his college enrolment which he says is no big deal. Jonah invites Amy to Glenn's Office to cancel his enrolment but finds it already lapsed so he tries to get it re-activated (he was bluffing that he didn't care). At the end of day, Rex hugs Jonah in the parking lot and says next time he's in town, they'll go for drinks. Having heard about Jonah's enrolment cancellation, Glenn hugs him and says he'll always have a place at the store and then leaps in the air and fist pumps.

The shooters are Jonah and Marcus who tells Jonah that the winner gets Amy. Jonah loses and yells at Marcus that no one gets Amy.

Amy is walking backwards carrying a large box with Jonah, slips and flies down a loading roller and hurts her arm. Amy and Jonah sit outside on loading bay. As they talk, both start feeling like themselves again and remember they fired Marcus. Amy and Jonah try to figure out how to get Marcus back when he returns and apologizes, blaming the heat.

"Health Fund": After Mateo gets an ear infection, Amy makes a collection jar for Mateo and asks Jonah's opinion on the best jar sign. He is disgusted that every time a staff member is sick, they have to scramble to collect money. Amy flippantly says they can't collect money before it's needed as planning isn't the staff's forté. This gives Jonah an idea for a health fund. Jonah proposes to a group of staff that they all contribute $20 monthly for a health fund. Amy makes fun of the proposal but when Kelly offers to pitch money in, the rest of the staff follow. Sandra is overjoyed to get an inhaler from the health fund and hugs Jonah.

As Jonah and Mateo look through the fine print of the settlement document, they discover that a background check is required which will reveal Mateo's undocumented status so they inform Jeff they are turning down the offer. Jeff approaches Jonah and Mateo and offers a higher settlement figure which he says is the final offer. When they turn him down, he keeps offering higher figures which to his frustration are refused.

In the Warehouse, Jonah tries to explain the kiss to Kelly. A video created by Sandra of Amy and Jonah's kiss which is a parody of the a-ha "Take On Me" video is shown on the store's TVs which Amy admits is impressive. In the Break Room, Glenn introduces Pastor Craig to deal with the souls of the staff. He finishes his session which Glenn is disappointed with. Glenn recalls various things staff have admitted to which causes Amy to protest that kissing Jonah wasn't adultery and, that she thought they were about to die.

Jonah points out he's dating Kelly and admits he had a crush on Amy years ago. Amy admits she had a crush on Jonah which surprises him.

He can't but Marcus does while mixing up the title names. Amy tells Jonah that Myrtle is going to fired and after some questioning, admits its her fault. Amy and Jonah convince Laurie to not fire Myrtle if they can find enough savings to make up Myrtle's salary. In the Warehouse, Amy tries to help Jonah find some cost savings. Amy and Jonah enter the Break Room and tell the staff they need to take the coffee machine in order to save money so that Laurie won't fire Myrtle. This leads numerous staff to posit whether it is sexist to call a woman a bitch who is acting like one. Jonah agrees with Marcus on a point but tells him to stop using the word "bitch". Justine rebukes Jonah when he explains to Cheyenne that no one hosts a holocaust. Amy and Jonah present the savings they've found to Laurie but despite impressing her, Laurie still wants Myrtle fired. Leaving the store, Amy curses about Laurie to Jonah.

While stocking produce, Kelly playfully gives Jonah a hard time for not mentioning her in his lottery fantasy. He tries to explain but this evokes teasing from Kelly. Amy tells Jonah about her failure with Glenn so Jonah encourages Amy to talk to Laurie. In Glenn's Office, Amy calls Laurie to ask for a raise but gets her secretary, Skye.

Jeff continually talks about Target to Jonah which prompts him to ask Jeff to tone down the work talk. Jeff figures out that Jonah knows his ruse and Mateo discusses this with Jonah. Mateo doesn't want to ask Jeff to find a job (as Jeff quit Cloud 9 for Mateo) so Jonah offers to. Jonah finds Jeff talking to Mateo and encourages him to find a job. Jeff wants to find what makes him happy which Mateo supports and so Jonah relents. In private, Mateo is angry at Jonah as Jonah was supposed to be the "bad cop" and insist on Jeff finding a job. In hiking gear, Jeff approaches Jonah and Mateo. Jonah forcefully tells Jeff he needs to stop dreaming and get a job while Mateo play acts supporting Jeff.

Amy cites the situation she's going through to which Jonah counters that everyone has problems. Amy belittles Jonah's problems to which he counters that Amy loves being the martyr and will give criticism but won't accept it. Amy can't believe her kissing Jonah has prompted such anger while he can't believe he waited two years for her and it wasn't until he was in a relationship and she was pregnant that she kissed him. She wonders why Jonah is still at the store and Jonah challenges her to leave but says she never will. Amy tells Jonah to go to hell and storms off. In the parking lot, Kelly tells Jonah their brunch plans with her parents. Kelly declares her love for Jonah but he tells her that they should break up.

Amy and Jonah discover that after 30 years with no disciplinary notes in her file, Myrtle was written up many times in the 6 months by Jeff before she was fired. There is tension between them as they both plan to question Jeff. Amy and Jonah talk to Jeff in his car which he's using for ride sharing. He reveals that Cloud 9 came up with a policy to falsely write-up any employee over the age of 70 as a pretext for firing them in order to save money. He offers to help with the situation which Amy takes him up on. In the Warehouse, Amy and Jonah share their discovery with a number of staff. They plan to have Jeff reveal the ageism policy at the town hall and steal Laurie's phone to retrieve an incriminating email on the policy from it. At Coffee & Bakery, Amy distracts Laurie by asking if she's a lesbian while Jonah searches through Laurie's bag for her phone. Amy mentions several prospects for Laurie to which Laurie says nothing until Jonah finds the phone. Amy and Jonah start looking through emails on Laurie's phone. Amy and Jonah find the email on downsizing legacy employees and print it off. Amy and Jonah try to get into the town hall but Laurie won't let them walk in front of the camera. Amy whispers to Jonah they can use the store's tunnels to get into the town hall and they leave. Garrett texts Amy and Jonah to hurry so they start through the store's tunnels. Dina stalls for time until Amy and Jonah arrive and give the email to Jeff. The town hall over, Amy and Jonah bring items including the flower stand with the hidden camera to the Photo Lab and complain about their management's corruptness. Amy can't believe she was naive enough to believe they'd get justice but Jonah thinks things will work out much to Amy's annoyance. Jonah asks Amy about their situation to which Amy suggests a fresh start. They smile at each other in agreement but as Amy turns away, Jonah kisses her passionately. As the Cloud 9 cameras in store are turned off, the camera Garrett hid in the flower stand activates and broadcasts Amy and Jonah undressing and having sex to the Cloud 9 global stores. Staff and customers at the stores stare in amazement while some film it.
