He took me to the edge of his balcony once and he asked, "Are you afraid?" And I said, "Yes." And he said, "Good. That's how I feel with you."

Sandra
In the Break Room, Glenn gets the staff's hopes up by waving a wad of money and then tells them cash is all they can accept at the store that day as the computer system is down. Dina notices Amy is absent and when staff speculate why, Glenn says it's for personal reasons. As they guess the reason, Glenn corrects them and finally spills that she's in marriage counselling. Amy arrives late and gives an excuse to a silent room. Cheyenne starts laughing nervously and Amy guesses that everyone knows about her counselling. After the meeting, both Jonah and Sandra try to comfort Amy which she doesn't want.

So everybody knows about my counselling.
Having heard about Amy's marriage counselling, Carol calls Amy's husband Adam and leaves a voice mail even though she has no relationship with him. Dina catches Amy in the Break Room and invites her to a ladies' lunch which Amy refuses. At customer service, several employees are discussing Amy's situation and Marcus indicates that if Amy's marriage ends, he has "dibs" on her which Jonah protests as offensive. Business at the store is very slow (due to cash only) so Garrett and Jonah starts shooting a muffin wrapped in tape into shopping baskets and carts. As Amy and Sandra are loading a dresser into a delivery truck, Dina closes the door on them and kidnaps Amy for a ladies' lunch.

Business is slow...
The restaurant Dina has chosen for Amy's lunch is The Charhouse, a very old school steakhouse. Cheyenne, Sandra, Carol, Justine and Myrtle also come. Dina lays down ground rules for conversation and as they order drinks, Amy makes it apparent she's in a hurry to end lunch. Jonah and Garrett develop their "taped muffin" game and hit Mateo with the muffin. He tattles to Glenn but they get them both interested in the game which now includes blockers and banking shots off mannequins. At the lunch, Amy asks how Cheyenne's relationship is with Bo and about Sandra's (fake) relationship with Jeff Sutin. Sandra tells some very convincing relationship details that captivates everyone.

Home of the 60oz steak challenge.
The taped muffin game has now turned into a running, full contact game with improvised equipment. Glenn scores a basket and Marcus teases Jonah about liking Amy which becomes confrontational. (♫ Wiz Khalifa – We Dem Boyz ♫) At lunch, Amy wants to leave and says the lunch is depressing and awkward. Dina is discouraged and admits this is the first time she's tried to organize such a lunch. Amy feels guilty, comes around and asks the waiter for another round of drinks. Getting drunk, the ladies play a game of "Kill, Bang, Marry". Dina admits she had sex with Garrett but the ladies think it is a big joke. At the taped muffin game, Don pushes Mateo into Glenn who crashes into a glass table which gives him a concussion.



LadiesLunch8
This game has gotten serious.
At the lunch, Sandra goes to the bar to get a drink but is ignored by the bartender. A man named Jerry tries to help get her service and then offers her the seat next to him. Amy talks about her marriage and is hopeful it will work out. However, she admits she is not good at change – she's had the same hair style since high school. The taped muffin game comes to a conclusion with a single jump shot playoff to decide which team will win. 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. Jerry and Sandra really hit it off until Carol interrupts them and mentions Sandra's (fake) boyfriend Jeff. Sandra walks away crushed and Carol moves in on Jerry. The ladies sans Myrtle are on stage jumping and singing karaoke. Sandra is barely moving and looks sadly at Carol dancing with Jerry. (♫ Simple Minds – Don’t You Forget About Me ♫)

Carol ruins it for Sandra.

Cheyenne and Amy walk into the store a bit drunk and notice the mess from the taped muffin game. Marcus approaches Amy and while leering at her says he'll be around. A drunk Dina and a concussed Glenn have an inane conversation. Jonah warns Amy that she might hear something about him wanting to "win" her and that it's not the case. When he finds out she is drunk he rebukes her and says she should go home. Myrtle enjoys a hot dog at the deli after just eating a huge steak. (♫ Isley Brothers – Who’s That Lady ♫) Instead of going home, Amy and Cheyenne go to the beauty counter where Cheyenne gives her a hair trim. Amy takes the scissors and cuts a big chunk from her own hair much to Cheyenne's surprise and delight.
