The episode opens with Bob telling Abishola he is going to the dollar theatre for a John Wayne feature. Abishola teases him about it and says that she used to think Elvis was president because of the focus on him.
Bob supplier calls and is told to deal with Goodwin. The supplier says he is afraid Goodwin will yell at him, but Bob says it will be fine. He then goes to the movies, with Abishola looking annoyed.
At work, Kemi gives Abishola Jello, while Gloria complains about her life and being at work. Abishola herself complains about Bob not working and says she misses the old Bob. Kemi tells her to work it out or create a Tinder profile. She walks off and tosses Gloria her own Jello.

At home, Abishola gives Bob a suit to wear….to work. She makes it clear she wants him to work again, but he doesn’t seem to understand.
Goodwin, Doug, Dottie and Kofo work on getting socks, but keep hitting dead ends….or dead contacts. Dottie is chugging Red Bull, which concerns Christina.
