At school, Myra holds up a paper for Charlie to see and says she passed her Biology final, and her geometry final is this Friday. Does he have time to help her? Charlie says he can't help her because of his new job. Myra says she understands that he is the papa bird pushing her out of the nest and Charlie tells her she'll do fine on her own. Myra says, "But half of them break their necks. I see their tiny carcasses splattered on the sidewalk." Whoa! Get this girl to the school counselor, stat! Charlie says his sister is awesome at math. Myra says, "Claudia? Banana girl?" At first I thought she was calling her Banana Girl because she used to look like a monkey in her pre-teen years. But then she explains, "Banana Republic. All her friends wear it." Didn't they tell us a few weeks ago that Claudia is poor? How can she afford Banana Republic? Anyway, Charlie says Claudia doesn't care about that stuff and he's going to ask her. He runs over to Claude's locker, conveniently located three steps away, and tells her Myra Ringler needs help. Claude says, "Ringworm? The angriest student in the high school? I thought you loved me, Charlie. I thought you cared if I lived." Charlie calls Myra over and introduces them, and declares them "study buddies" and leaves. They watch him walk away and then study each other doubtfully.
At the furniture shop where Charlie is working, we see the boss (Gus) telling Charlie he did a great job. Charlie asks him for more hours, and tells him he needs thirty hours a week. Gus says he's already paying him $20 per hour. Geez, he should do that full-time. It's got to pay more than being a shop teacher! Anyway, Gus says that he doesn't have the work to justify giving Charlie the extra hours, and even if he did, there are men with more seniority who would get the time. You'd think a factory like that would be a union shop, but I guess not. Charlie says that he'll have to go work elsewhere if he can't get the hours and Gus relents and says he hopes Charlie gets what he's saving for.
Will is freaking out about a wrestling flyer that has a mistake on it. He tells Bailey, who is standing there, that he's not getting paid enough to worry about such matters. Bailey agrees and says that Will should protest by leaving for a week and seeing how they handle things without him. Will agrees that he should do that, but clearly he's all talk. Bailey says, "Let's go! The truck is outside." Will wonders what the hell he's talking about. Bailey says he's got the truck with all of Sarah's stuff in it waiting outside, and he and Griffin are going to drive it to New York City. Joe is covering the restaurant, Victor is watching Owen and Griffin wants to "pick up a Harley in Brooklyn." Will says, "That's three thousand miles! Can't you ship it?" Bailey says that he was planning on going to visit Sarah anyway, so now he is saving airfare by driving, plus it's a chance to see the country. Also, Will had told him he needs to lighten up and do crazy things once in a while, so that's what this is. Also, he is a friend in pain, and that should be more important to Will than wrestling. In other words, Bailey is giving Will a major guilt trip. He asks Will, "What do you say?" and Will replies, "Shotgun." While that makes for a pithy reply, how do you not sit shotgun in a delivery truck? I guess sitting in the middle could be not shotgun, and the funny thing is, the next time they show Will, he is sitting in the middle.
