Love Bites: Modern Plagues

After their initial misunderstanding over banana bread, Jodie has now decided to move in with her new flame Charlie. Their domestic bliss is quickly interrupted when they realize Charlie has a bedbug infestation, throwing a wrench in their "togetherness" plans. Meanwhile, when Judd deftly performs the Heimlich maneuver on their neighbor Kyle, everyone is relieved - until Drew becomes upset that Kyle turned to Judd for help when he was choking. Also, "Matt", who aided Annie in escaping from a bad date weeks earlier, can't stop thinking about her. He contemplates breaking it off with his longtime girlfriend Amanda and following another chance meeting with Annie, becomes even more certain it's the right thing to do.

Jodie gets Charlie’s apartment keys from him at the restaurant, and tells Chef James that she is moving in with him. When James thanks her for being frank with him, she tells him that she is telling him only because Annie is on leave for delivering her baby. Jodie is nervous about giving up her apartment, and manages to drop a plate in front of a visitor. Luis thinks Jodie might mess up with Charlie, as she is afraid of commitments. Owen and Matt (Annie’s doctor), are at the bar, and Owen makes a comment ‘it is a mistake’. Jodie feels that the words are for her, and walks out almost screaming about Annie’s maternity leave...
