The episode begins with Wade waking up to the sound of the shower. He then sees the clothes of a girl lying in front of him. Meanwhile, Zoe and Lavon discuss all that has happened with Lavon blaming himself for the fiasco. Zoe then leaves for the Rammer Jammer to do some recon. Just then Wade enters, and shows Lavon a huge woman’s gown, and it’s of the woman he slept with the previous night. He doesn’t remember who it was. Meanwhile, at the Rammer Jammer, Zoe finds George singing with a group of guys. She inquires about some gossip but is disappointed. She meets Brick who still is blissfully unaware of things. Meanwhile Lemon is still in denial about George having broken up with him, and has baked him a cake to quell his anger. ..

Episode Quotes
Wade: Hello?
Tom: Hey Wade!
(Wade screams, Tom screams)
Tom: Why are we screaming?
Wade: What are you doing here?
Tom: Don't you remember?
Wade: I wouldn't be asking, Tom, if I remembered.
Tom: I found you last night walking on the side of the road. You were drunk as a skunk so I brought you back here. I was tired, so I slept over.
Wade: In my bed?
Tom: The couch was itchy. Don't worry, we slept feet to head.
Wade: Some things are best forgot.

Lemon: So does this mean there's still hope for the wedding to be on?
George: Not even an iota.

Zoe: The wedding song.
George: Just took me by surprise, that's all.
Zoe: George, I think it's time to go home.

Zoe: It was so weird. George Tucker was happy, elated even. Didn't even seem like he was angry with me any more. He is obviously in denial, which is stage on in the five stages of grief.
Lavon: Yes Zoe, even I, a stupid football jock, knows what denial is.
Zoe: Sorry, it's just I've never seen a case this bad. He needs to deal with his feelings. I have to figure out a way to help him move on to stage two, anger. Before he snaps.
Lavon: And you're researching how on a computer? Aren't you supposed to be a doctor?
Zoe: Psych was not my best rotation. My thesis, 'Get Over It', was not well received.
Lavon: Can't imagine why...

Wade: Well, I guess I just wanted you to know that I'm trying, too.
Tansy: Well it's about time, Wade Kinsella.

Lavon: What is that look on your face?
Zoe: Hope. Because now I know that George and I could be great together.
