Just as Gus is ready to bash his head in with a napkin holder, Buzz spills beer all over Brisco. Buzz offers to wash his shirt for him, but Brisco tells him that he will never need to wear the uniform again and he can just throw it away. Buzz hands the shirt to Gus, who has put down the napkin holder. The two of them are able to convince Brisco that he has been there for hours.

Coop is able to get the door open but as soon as it opens and Alan sees Coop, he rushes him and pushes him against the wall thinking that it was all Coopís fault that Lizzie wouldnít let him out as soon as they found him. Lizzie blows up at him. She canít believe that the first thing he wants to do after getting out is to hurt someone else. Lizzie and Alan argue more when Alan wonít back down from blaming Coop.

In Mallets office, he tries to keep Harley awake while he waits for the nurse to call back from the infirmary. Harley is a bit out of it and wanting to sleep really badly. Mallet is touched when she tells him that she has really missed him, until it becomes clear that she thinks she is talking to Gus. Mallet gets a call from the nurse telling him that there are no beds available in the infirmary because many of the inmates have come down with a case of food poisoning. He announces to Harley that he guesses she will be spending the night here with him. He knows that she has a concussion and must stay awake. Harley just wants to sleep. Mallet takes her out on his balcony to get some fresh air in an attempt to keep her awake. He remembers another time that he had to try to keep Harley awake when they were working on a case together. Back inside Harley again tries to lay on the couch and go to sleep. Mallet gets her up and tries to walk her around. Harley gets mad at him and demands to go back to her cell. She thinks Lena would be much better company than he is.

She demands to know why he is always so hard on her. He was even much harder on her in the academy than he was anyone else. Mallet tells her that he was really hard on her at the academy because he loved her. He asks her if she ever thinks about the times that they had together. He is disappointed when she tells him that she doesnít ever think about it, getting a bit defensive about it. Mallet thinks that the defensiveness proves that she does still think about it and that there is still a lot of anger there. Harley turns the conversation back to Mallet when she asks him why he is being so hard in here on her. Mallet isnít sure what to say. When he doesnít answer, Harley asks him why he is here now. He tells her that he just wants to make sure she is safe. That is all heís ever wanted.

Elsewhere, Gus enters the prison in Brisoís uniform and almost makes in without notice. Lena sees him and recognizes him. She quickly makes up a story about remembering that he is the guard that told her about her sister coming to visit when they realize that another guard is watching them. Gus follows her lead and tells her that he is there to take her for a special visit with her sister. The Guard isnít sure about that because it is way passed visiting hours. Gus tells him that he has strict orders from the warden and that it is a special visit. The guard shrugs it off and leaves the two of them alone.

Lena explains that she knows who Gus is because of the picture that Harley has of him. Gus is please to hear that Harley has a picture of him in her cell. He asks if Lena knows where Harley is because she wasnít in her cell. Lena agrees to take him to Harley, but she isnít sure he is going to like it.

Mallet sits on the desk with Harley next to him. She tells him that she really needs to sleep. He tells her that she canít. She asks if she can just close her eyes if she promises not to go to sleep. She lays her head over in his lap and closes her eyes, promising that she isnít going to sleep.

Just then the door to the office slams shut and Gus enters the room.
