After Zoe treats the high school football team, she learns that Max, who happens to be Rose's new crush, has become infatuated with her instead. Eager to nip his crush in the bud, Zoe learns that Max is prone to overreacting to heartbreak and is encouraged by the town to wait until after the big game, as they are counting on him to win. Lemon decides to start a catering business and asks AnnaBeth to join, but Lemon is taken aback by her answer. Meanwhile, Lavon tries to win over Ruby's grandfather Sergeant Jeffries by doing his chores, but Lavon finds out there is another reason her grandfather doesn't want them together.

Episode Quotes
Zoe: How did evolution manage to skip Bluebell entirely?
Wade: Well, it happens. We also missed out on Bieber Fever.

Zoe: Okay, I hope this doesn't sound harsh, but based on your previous obsessions...does he even know you're alive?
Rose: That's the thing, he does! We've had lunch three times this week already. Yesterday I traded my Ho-Ho for his Ding-Dong.
Zoe: Okay, I'm not up with the teen slang, but I really hope those are still snacks.

Lemon: Goodness, I am just running into everyone this morning. It's like a private tour of my own life.
George: You okay, Lemon? You look a little pale.
Lemon: Then the efforts to avoid the ageing effects of sunlight are succeeding. Are you okay, or is this box a little cry for help?
George: Funny, funny.

Zoe: Bartender, a glass of pinot.
Wade: For the millionth time, we got red and we got white, so...
Zoe: I know, I know I just miss saying it. Red.
Wade: Alright, you're in a good mood.
Zoe: I cured some foot fungus.

Max: You are magnificent.
Zoe: (eating noisily) ...thank you.
Max: And I'm not just talking about your kind eyes, or your glowing dew-kissed skin, I'm talking about your brain.
Zoe: Thanks, Max. That is nice to hear.
Max: You know, you are all of those things and a damn good doctor.

Wade: Hey, Wanda. Can I ask you something. I've got this friend, and he wants to do something romantic for this girl he's been hanging out with. You know, something to show her he appreciates her.
Wanda: Aww, that's so sweet.
Wade: Whatever, I hate all that mushy stuff. But I thought you might have some ideas I could pass along to him.
Wanda: Well, Tom's always doing small things. Like dedicating Celine Dion songs to me on the radio. Oh, and he got us those matching spray paint t-shirts, they make at the fair.
Wade: Yeah, I think my friend would think those are pretty terrible ideas.
Wanda: It really doesn't matter what it is, as long as it's from the heart.
