The episode begins with George testing his eyesight by trying to recognize people from across the road, after he saw Lavon and Lemon kissing at a distance the night before. He still can’t seem to believe his eyes. Zoe is curious as to what he is exactly is trying to do, he tells her “I am trying to see what a witness may or may not be able to see from this distance”. Meanwhile, Lavon comes by, and the situation becomes apparently awkward, with Lavon’s guilt, George’s doubt and Zoe looking on at the two of them curiously.

Episode Quotes
Zoe: I hate small towns. Everyone I know lives here, and there are only like nine people in the whole town. You have to keep track of everyone's secrets. In New York I could ride next to someone on the subway, learn all about them, about their kids, their hopes, their dreams. And never have to think about them again. It was great. You know, I don't even live here? And that is why I am done. I am officially out of the being in everyone's business, business.
Jesse: Well, I don't live here. I'm Jesse.
Zoe: Hi, I'm Zoe. Dr. Hart. Dr. Zoe Hart. Zoe. Yeah, sorry I've just been talking all about me and I didn't even ask you how you sprained your wrist.
Jesse: Oh, ninja stuff. It's boring.
Zoe: Well how did a ninja wind up in this small little town?
Jesse: Well, you are sworn to secrecy right? Being my doctor?
Zoe: Mmhm, absolutely.
Jesse: Antiquing.
Zoe: Really?
Jesse: And some murdering and what not.

Wade: Hangover? What can I get for you?
Lavon: A quick burial. Nothing fancy, maybe say a few words.
Wade: Or you could have my extra special, top secret, with robin egg, hangover cure. Old Kinsella recipe right there, shell and all.
Lavon: (phone rings) Owww, this is my hangover cure, right there. (throws phone)

Tom: You're going hunting? Why do you want to shoot living things?
Wade: Shooting dead ones isn't that sporting, Tom.
George: Yeah, there's probably a law against it.
Tom: You are not funny. Imagine your surprise if, like, a deer just came up and shot you where you stood.
George: Wow, I would be surprised if that happened.
Wade: Yeah, how'd a deer get ammunition?
Tom: You're killers.

George: Oh, so you felt unloved?
Lemon: Yes!
George: Well, I loved you!

Wade: You walked in, you can walk out.
Tom: Yeah, but there's a bear out there!
Wade: Good point...see you back in town, Tom.
