She tells him that she is sorry and that she isn’t ready to see her daughter date some guy. Zoey is sitting on a bench with the girls and Jackie joins them. Jackie finds out that Grace is carrying lighter and takes it away from her.

Grace asks her to calm down. Grace tells Jackie that she cannot be too judgmental about people as she herself has gotten out of a rehab. She tells Grace that she had searched on the internet about Jackie’s “new office”, and found out that it’s a rehab. She says that she wouldn’t tell her dad.

She tells him that she needs to talk to him. She admits that she went to rehab and that she did well. She wants to work things out and keep no more secrets. She also tells him that Grace knows.

Next, she calls Charlie and asks him if he would like to go to one of those group meetings. Next, Jackie tells Eleanor that Grace knows about the rehab but is acting pretty normal about it. She also tells Eleanor about the other woman in Kevin’s apartment and thinks that she should find someone to have sex with.

Eleanor bandages Jules’ wounds and tells Jackie to prepare for an ultra sound.

But Jules doesn’t want to get an ultra sound done. She tells them that she is here for her hand and will leave once its done. She reluctantly agrees. There is a tattoo on her baby bump. But Eleanor is shocked to see that Jules is not pregnant. Her bump is due to nine deadly tumors. Jackie asks Eleanor if they can be removed; but unfortunately they cannot. Jules tells them that the tumors are so big, that people think she is pregnant. Eleanor declares that she too has a tattoo and the other two girls want to see it. Jules tells Eleanor that it would be nice to show a dying chick her ink. The doctor agrees. Next, Cooper is attending to the penis fracture case. The guy tells him that he was masturbating and that he got a little aggressive and squeezed himself really hard.

And he heard something pop and he broke his penis. Meanwhile, Jackie receives her paycheck and sees that she is paid only 63 dollars. She is angry and goes to Cruz to talk about it. Cruz tells her that she is being charged for the things she took. Just then she receives a message from Charlie saying that he would meet her at the meeting. Next, Jackie goes to meet Jules and finds that her hand is actually broken and she is in plaster. Next, Cooper tells the guy that at times he sings Happy birthday to his penis; not very medical but helps. Just then Thor walks in and tells the guy that he should lower his dosage. Thor tells the boys that when he was with his boyfriend, he used to have some problem downstairs and that he had lowered his dosage to 5mg and everything was fine.

Meanwhile, Eleanor is discussing maternity leaves with Gloria, and Gloria tells her that she is in the worst place in the world when it comes to benefits.

Gloria and Eleanor are happy. Jackie arrives at the meeting and Charlie is already there. She takes Charlie and leaves. They are sitting in a park and Jackie tells him that she is not able to believe that he is being out for just a week, and he is already started taking drugs. And Charlie says that it is unbelievable to see that Jackie hasn’t started taking them again. Just then they see a man fall down and Jackie rushes to offer help.

But the man is rude and tells her that he doesn’t need any. But when she returns, Charlie is gone. Next, Kevin comes to meet Eddie. Kevin asks him whether he is a drug dealer.
