Joe asks Bailey about Evvie, saying that their conversation sounded "heated," and that he thought she said something about AA. Bailey says she asked him to be her sponsor. Joe guesses that he can't because he's drinking again, then asks whether Bailey told her that, then asks if he has told his friends at AA. Bailey says it's not a big secret. Joe asks if his family knows about it. Bailey tells him he hasn't said anything because it's no big deal. Joe says it might be a big deal to his family. Bailey asks if Joe wants to tell them, and that he thinks Joe "would understand [Bailey's] position" and "maybe it's best not to upset them with something they wouldn't understand," clearly alluding to the fact that Bailey is keeping Joe's stealing under wraps. It would've been cool if he said "quid pro quo" like in Silence of the Lambs.
Bailey walks into a copy store and finds Evvie working there, fixing a copier. Evvie tries to be all frosty, but Bailey apologizes for the way he acted. Evvie says she was out of line in what she said. Bailey says the whole point of being in AA is to be able to talk to someone else who understands. He points out that sometimes talking to someone else can be helpful for both parties. Evvie asks him if he is okay, and then says she has a break coming up and asks him to join her for coffee. Bailey agrees.
One of the factory workers, Warren, catches Charlie in the parking lot as they are leaving work. Warren says he's worried about the line, because it's not going the way Charlie said it would. He points out that some buyers came in and Gus showed them the products, and the looks on the buyers' faces showed that they know the furniture is sub-par. Warren finishes by saying that "the guys are worried." Just then Gus comes out and sees the two of them talking and Charlie gives Warren a look that says, "Cheese it, the fuzz!" and then yells out all jovial, "Hi, Gus!" Gus just gives them a look like "I know you're talking about me but I can't say anything because I didn't actually hear anything, but don't think I don't know that you two are up to some shenanigans." Amazing what one can convey with a look, isn't it? Charlie says, "Goodnight, Gus!" like take the hint and leave already, so Gus does, but he's not happy about it. Once Gus is out of earshot, Charlie tells Warren that they will have to lower prices, but that Gus knows what he's doing, so they should give him a shot. Plus, there's the small matter that he owns the factory and could can all their asses tomorrow if he so desired. Warrens says, "Gus thinks a lot of things, Charlie, and look where that got us." Charlie says that he has fought Gus all he can, like, way to undermine your bosses' authority, but that ultimately Gus owns the factory. Warren says that Charlie got them this far and that he got to take his family out to dinner for the first time in six months, and that it was nice, for once, not to worry about possibly losing his job.
