Lemon and Floyd are out on a balmy night after dinner. Floyd seems smitten but he's got a flight to catch back to Cleveland. He takes off in a cab but not before turning to look at Liz. "Eat it up Cleveland," she says derisively. The next morning Lemon wakes up covered in sudden change of temperature flop sweat and brags to Jenna over the phone about how good she looked last night in front of Floyd. But when she opens her door for the morning paper he's standing in front of her. At the sight of her he yells "Croank?" I couldn't quite make that one out. A lot less detectable than blaargh. Floyd's flight was canceled -- and by flight I mean his airline got canceled -- and now he needs to crash at Lemon's place. Lemon invites Floyd in while pulling a band-aid out of her hair. After an awkward pause she demurely asks "who was that bitch that answered your phone eight months ago?"
Tracy pulls out a bit of the old soft shoe trying to impress the teamsters and convince them to get a replacement sandwich for Lemon. Brian Dennehy sits in his office chair holding a baseball bat. He calls all the shots. "That's enough," he says and Tracy stops the soft shoe. "You two kiss" and Frank almost does with Lutz. Lutz fails miserably at getting the name of the sandwich place and Dennehy explains that the only way to get their replacement sandwich is to earn it, and the only way to earn it is a drinking contest. Cue the Fat Albert theme song, which makes no sense to write on the surface of it but if you really stop to imagine it, kind of does.
Floyd seems relieved that Lemon has finally brought up the sordid circumstances of their demise. Lemon is taken aback and promptly backs off but before Floyd can get into it his phone rings. It's the airline with a replacement ticket back to Cleveland. Floyd insists that this is more important but Lemon equally implores him to go catch his flight. He promises to call her and explain when he gets back home.
Frank tries to get Jenna to represent them in the drinking faceoff with the teamsters later that night. He can't drink because of certain medication required because of an undisclosed bacterial infection; Lutz can't drink post-surgery; Kenneth is religious; and Tracy still has the drink detector wrapped around his ankle. Stubborn at first, Jenna acquiesces. "I'll do it, but only for the attention." Jack pops in looking for Lemon and has to explain why he'll be on floor 12 for the rest of the day. "As a joke." Tracy cracks up. He also breaks the sad news to them that the drinking game for sandwich disclosure is part of the teamsters contract agreement.
