Bud comes in and asks if Sam knew that Joe was on the desk because a drug dealer filed assault charges on him. Sam can’t believe it because Joe wasn’t that type of person. Sam suggests that she go and get the drug dealer, but Bud tells that she should go notify Helen, Joe’s wife. Sam asks Megan to go with her and Peter goes with Bud.
