Hart Of Dixie: Achy Breaky Hearts

Both Zoe and Lemon are having a difficult time accepting Lavon and Ruby's new relationship, so they decide to find out Ruby's true intentions. Wade agrees to supervise a Little Ranger's camping trip to avoid a potentially awkward conversation with George. However, when George unexpectedly shows up on the trip, Wade has nowhere to hide, and their talk makes him see his relationship in a different light. Meanwhile, Brick wants to take the next step in his relationship with Emily, but is shocked about who is not on board with the plan.

The episode begins with Zoe telling Wade she doesn’t want to pretend liking Ruby, when she actually doesn’t. George knocks on Wade’s door just then and Zoe immediately hides behind Wade’s bed. George leaves and then Wade asks Zoe “tell me again why we can’t tell Tucker what’s going on between us?” She tells Wade that George will hate them if he finds out the truth. Later Lavon sees the awkwardness between Zoe and Ruby and tells Zoe that she needs to accept the fact that Ruby is her girlfriend and she should therefore try to be nice to her. Zoe tells Lavon that she is worried Ruby will never stay in Bluebell and will as a result end up hurting Lavon. ..

Episode Quotes
Wade: I just don't see what the problem is.
Zoe: I am tired of faking it, I'm not good at it.
Wade: Yeah, I know. Every time you try you get that goofy little smile on your face.
Zoe: Oh, shut up.

George: Hey, man. I'm just bringing back your fishing gear. I am going for a jog in a little bit, you want to tag along?
Wade: I'm feeling really beat right now, so I'll probably pass.
George: Getting soft in your old age, huh? Getting soft or something?

Rev. Peter Mayfair: Wade Kinsella, you are the answer to my prayers. Can't believe I finally found ya.
Wade: Well, it shouldn't be that hard Reverend. I'm always here. What can I do for you and the big guy?

Zoe: No, no, no, no.
Lemon: Hey, you said you would listen to me and you didn't even let me finish.
Zoe: Because when you finish, I know I am going to say no, so I figured I would get it over with. This sounds like a scheme, and I --
Lemon: This is not a scheme, alright? It is the right thing to do. We can't tell Lavon until we have all the right information.
Zoe: You keep saying "we" but I am not --
Lemon: I need you. As a doctor you are in a unique position, people open up to you. I'll point the guy out and you are going to go talk to him. Tell him that there is an outbreak of Ebola or Legionnaires Disease, or whatever, and that all out of towners have to be checked. And then, while examining him, you get him to confirm whether or not he is Ruby Jeffries secret lover.
Zoe: In your head, what would qualify as a scheme?

Rev. Peter Mayfair: Welcome to the wilderness, Eagle Rangers! Now take a deep breath. That's the fresh air of nature's playground, and it's all ours for the next 24 hours. Anything you want to add?
Wade: Uhh... try not to get killed by snakes.
Rev. Peter Mayfair: Okay... words of wisdom.

George: Okay, I've been thinking of a good way to say this. I think sometimes it's just best to come right out with it.
Wade: Uhh, not always.
George: Would you mind if I were to ask Tansy out?
Wade: Tansy?
George: Yeah.
Wade: As in, my ex-wife, Tansy?
