Harley meets with two men in the town square about business. Gus is nearby, so he starts saying that Harley is a mover and shaker, and gets things done. He says it is a sarcastic way, so she wonders what's going on. He holds out his badge and gun to her, saying it's over--he's off the force. He thanks her for having them take his job away. Harley looks embarrassed. She takes Gus aside, asking him to put it away. She points out that she is in the middle of an important meeting. He asks loudly if he is embarrassing her and pretends to apologize. Then he adds that she's not as innocent as she looks. She apologizes sincerely to the men, but they tell her that they will reschedule. Harley is furious and yells at him. He questions her about having him thrown off the force. She claims that it was only supposed to be temporary. She only told Frank that he was under pressure and needed some time off. Gus wonders why she's doing this to him, so she tells him that she's cared because the last time he was out on the street, his partner got shot. He seems to realize that this is all about Mallet, but she denies it vehemently. He yells that the whole last year has been about Mallet. She shakes her head. He pushes her away so that they are farther apart. She asks what happened to the guy in the cabin that was going to break the drug habit. He says that he can't hear her when she talks.

He tells her that this is starting to get old. She assures him that she's not armed this time, calling him "Sweetie". They trade insults. She asks him if he's still after Harley. He counters that he's only after her job, but she thinks he's fooling herself. She warns him to stay away from Harley. He doesn't believe her attitude but is shocked to learn that Harley knows all about his plans against her. He wonders why she told her, since he wouldn't have sold her out. She says suspiciously that he hasn't yet. He tells her that she's no fun any more. He suddenly realizes that Dinah is playing good girl for Mallet's sake. She informs him that she is doing what's right, including standing by Harley.

and angry. He adds that she will one day do what she does best, as he points to
his head with a gun gesture. She knows that he is just trying to manipulate her.

even urges him to try. He asks her how sure she is that the worst thing Harley
ever did to her was sleep with Mallet. She is unfazed by his attempt and tells
him that she can't wait to drive his sorry butt out of jail. He thinks he
represents the real her. She tells him that he is her enemy. He tells her that
they're finished and that he needs to take a shower. He gestures toward the
door, but she doesn't move, so he starts undressing. She gets real close to him
and whispers, "Is this supposed to impress me?" He says it will do something to
her. She watches with a smirk as he walks into the bathroom. She stuffs his
clothes into a drawer, wadded up, so they will wrinkle. She walks into the
bathroom while he's in the shower and flushes the toilet. He screams loudly and
she grins mischievously, then she leaves.

Gus wakes up in his hotel room in a crumpled heap, holding a bottle of Jack
Daniels. The room is a mess and he is staggering. He leaves, barely able to
stand up or open the door. He is bending over to pick up the bottle and keys
when Dinah comes up and makes a comment about him having a liquid lunch. She
takes his keys and tells him that he's not going anywhere like this. He says he
is all out so he needs to refill. She stops him and tells him that he needs to
sleep it off. He tells her that he is not going to be baby-sat, but she gets the
last word and forces him back into his room. When Gus finds another bottle,
Dinah wrestles it away from him. She argues with him about why he's behaving
this way. When she brings up Harley, he gets quiet and sits down. He wonders why
she's okay with learning about Harley and Mallet. She says she's not and that
she went nuts when she found out, but she's going to get through it. He says he
can't do that. She thinks he can and tries to help him through. They discuss
forgiveness. She points out that he was dead and that they could have decided to
pursue a relationship, but they didn't. She thinks it means something that
Harley chose to stay true to her love for Gus, even though he was dead. Gus
thinks they would be a couple if he wasn't dead, no question. Dinah once again
takes the bottle away again and keeps at him about his behavior. He tells her
that he just can't take the idea of Harley and Mallet together and can't get it
out of his brain. She pulls him over to bed so he can sleep it off as she gives
him a pep talk about how he will feel tomorrow. Gus murmurs that he could have
handled it if it were anyone but him. She understands, she tells him. Gus grabs
her and kisses her.
