Later, she calls him at his desk, as her office is in the adjacent building visible from him. After each follow the other on various social sites, he asks her out for a drink. At the bar, a familiar tune plays, and he thinks she attended a concert where he admired her from afar and imagined life together with her. She insists it wasn't her and ends the date. Convinced it was her, he enlists the help of two programmers from work, Dinesh and Lora, to take her Wallflower profile and find online evidence of her at the concert that night. Meanwhile, Stephie tells her about her newest man, a jazz musician named Scatman Desmoines, and reminds her to open her heart to have luck finding love.

Although outraged, she gives him a chance to mention it, but he fails to do so. She lashes out at him hiding his arrest. He explains that it was 10 years ago and the cops had it out for him.
