Outside, Jack and Nancy watch the skaters at the ice rink and catch up on old times. Jack whips out his long-buried Boston accent, and Nancy reveals that her Irish moron of a husband is not reliable. Jack sees an opening and offers to take Nancy and her sons out to dinner. She says the boys have anticipated going to the ESPN Zone for their Hideki Matsui Fajitas. Jack suggests she lets the boys go to the Zone, and he'll take her out. She agrees, noting it's a good thing they were never romantically involved in high school, or things would be weird.
Back inside, Danny tells Jenna the joyful news about their duet. She asks him to sing for her so she can "plan [their] harmonies." He sings about a half a verse of "O Danny Boy," then stops as Jenna's nose is bleeding -- but not from a rage stroke, she assures him.
Out in the corridor, Tracy intercepts Kenneth taking a couple of sausage pizzas to the Verdukians in celebration of the Holiday of Mouth Pleasures. Tracy finally breaks it to Kenneth that the guys made up Verdukianism to get out of Secret Santa. But in doing so, he introduces Kenneth to the idea that religion may be an invention of man. Just as our favorite faithful Page is plunging into a crisis of spirituality, Tracy grabs the pizzas and vamooses.
Upstairs, Cerie shows Jack some pictures of the trip that Nancy has uploaded to YouFace. She notes that it's a good sign Nancy has cropped Jack out of a picture (in which Nancy is cupping wax Burt Reynolds' balls, mind you) because she doesn't want her husband to see him. Her hesitance means she feels something for Jack. Then Cerie spots that Nancy has changed her relationship status from "Working On It" to "Weirdsies."
Later, Lemon visits Jack's office as he prepares for his date with Nancy. She's brought him a present, but alas it's the tie he's already wearing, and the store she got it from has a "no returns" policy. Jack says Lemon obviously doesn't know him well enough to realize that it's his lucky tie, and shares a sartorial insight about her choice of clothing that particular afternoon. He offers to even out the playing field by suggesting they exchange gifts that don't cost any money. Lemon thinks she's got him beat on creativity, but her version of creativity in this instance translates to some really inarticulate verbal diarrhea. She abruptly shifts her focus back to the tie, asking why he's wearing his lucky tie. Jack tells her about Nancy's status change and their forthcoming date. Lemon cautions him to be careful about his expectations, but Jack prefers to enjoy the thrill while it lasts.
