Nora: What I’m saying is, I don’t see you as a threat for Bo and me, okay? I’m just... annoyed.

Nora enters Bo’s office to see Inez placing a plant on Bo’s desk. Nora’s allergic, so Inez will think of something else, but Nora says that all Bo wants is for Inez to do her job well. When Nora instructs Inez not to read into Bo’s kindness, Inez thinks that Nora’s afraid of Inez stealing Bo, but Nora scoffs. Inez assures Nora that she’s harmless, believing Bo and Nora to be “adorable together”, but wonders why Nora is so threatened. Nora is not threatened, she’s annoyed.

Nora believes that Inez’s sons are grown men and can take care of themselves, but Inez insists that Nora doesn’t know Eddie. Inez keeps pushing until Nora reveals her suspicion that Inez harbors a crush on Bo. Nora indicates that while she trusts Bo, she does not trust Inez. Inez is bewildered, and as she leaves, Nora silently berates herself.

Eddie opens the door to Bo, acting dismissively until Bo flashes his badge. Bo explains that Eddie is on his turf and he’s acting on behalf of Inez and the boys. Eddie accuses Bo of harassment, and tells him that he’s falling for Inez’s strategy: a “poor me” routine designed to snag a hero.

Bo vows to get Eddie out of Llanview, but Eddie insists that he hasn’t broken any laws. Eddie spies Bo’s wedding ring and wonders how Bo’s wife feels about Bo and Inez. Bo pledges to make Eddie’s life so miserable, he’ll regret coming to town. Once alone, Eddie calls directory assistance to ascertain Inez’s address.

Inez returns, saying Nora is right about Inez acting inappropriately, but Nora claims to have overreacted. Inez wants to remove the plant, but Nora insists that it stays. They struggle until the plant goes flying. Bo witnesses the altercation.
