After Lemon's fallout with the Belles, she is blacklisted from the Junior League Halloween Masquerade party, so she calls her Grandma Bettie for help and lands herself a date with another of Alabama's most eligible bachelors. Lavon has a big surprise for his anniversary with AnnaBeth, but when she has a health scare, she turns to Zoe to help her out. Meanwhile, during the party, George has to do damage control with the town judges and Wade keeps finding himself in trouble with ineligible ladies.

Episode Quotes
Lemon: And what is a hairy eyeball?
George: It's that look you're giving Crickett right now. What gives, Lemon?
Lemon: I quit the Belles so she had me blacklisted. From the Junior League Halloween masquerade party!
Wade: It's a crime against humanity.
Lemon: Look, I have to get into that party or I will have no hope of dating a decent man in this state.
George: Alright, fine. I'm going, you can be my plus one.
Wade: Hey, you guys could go as that married couple that never got married. What, that was funny.

Brick: Oh, Dr. Hart. How is that inventory check-list coming?
Zoe: 722 cotton balls, 243 alcohol swabs and 43 lolly pops...oh, actually, 42.

Lemon: Daddy!
Brick: Lemonade!
Lemon: Oh, you are so handsome and sweet and understanding.
Brick: Oh god, what do you need?
Lemon: Due to recent missteps, not to be rehashed, my social life is at a code red. The only way to fix it is to call on grandma.
Brick: Absolutely not! Do I need to remind you of the one silver lining in the disaster that was your near wedding day?
Lemon: But she was so humiliated she's refused to set foot in Bluebell since.
Brick: And what a gloriously peaceful 18 months and 14 days it has been.

Zoe: What are you doing?
Joel: What? You said it was important for me to make friends, I am making friends!
Zoe: Yeah, but with Wade? Wade? Why?
Joel: He's cool, he's got a pick-up truck. I've never been in a pick-up truck.

Lemon: I think I'm still trying to prove to everyone that I can succeed on my own two feet. Which is why I had grandma arrange a date with Tanner Hughes...
Peter: Mmhm.
Lemon: ...and his foamy mouth.
Peter: That makes perfect sense.
Lemon: You must think that I'm a snob. You know what, you're right, I probably am. Well, I don't even like listening to me right now.
Peter: Well I do. And besides, I don't think a snob would run that amazing establishment that I met you at yesterday. I mean, the Rammer Jammer? You know what I really did like about that place? The juke box. The way the music was organized, it wasn't by like song title, or singer, or genre. It was like someone organized it by emotion.
Lemon: That was me. I did that last week. Break up songs, I miss you songs, I want you songs, I hate you songs, dance with me songs, I need a drink songs. That's pretty much every song worth listening to.
Peter: That's not a snobs juke box.

Wade: Woohoo, we lost him!
George: Damn right I did, 'cause I didn't want to get my brain smashed in by your stupid moron brain. Seriously, Wade. What the hell is wrong with you, man?
Wade: Well, I was waiting for you to slow dance with me. I started getting lonely...
George: Wade, seriously. What's wrong with you? I mean, you're sleeping with married women, you're sleeping with girls who've got boyfriends the size of refrigerators.
Wade: Look, it's not my finest two days, I will admit.
George: You know what I think it is, man? I think you are getting with every unavailable woman you can because the one unavailable girl you want, you can't have.
Wade: Oh, wow. That is, that is deep Dr. Freud, but you're wrong. So, so wrong. Let's go, because I'm sleeping at your place tonight.
George: I should make you sleep in the truck, that's what I should do.
