A newly minty Sam approaches Todd outside the coffee shop. He's reading a newspaper he just took out of the vending machine. They're all awkward and stiff with each other as Sam asks Todd if anything big has happened to him recently. It turns out it has -- he's gotten a job freelancing for the newspaper, and his first photo is in that day's issue. So he runs off to call his parents.
Regina is in the kitchen at home when Sam enters. Sam is preparing to go out, and Regina asks her where she's off to. Sam tells her that she's going out with Dena, to "make topiaries." Regina, sounding wounded, asks, "You're going to Clip-Clip-Hooray?" Sam wouldn't go with Regina, but she's going now because she needs to kiss up to Dena. Sam mentions that Dena is dating Chapman, and Regina can't believe that Sam has now let both Funk and Chapman slip through her own clutches. Did she let Funk slip away? Last I remember, they were talking about a coffee date. Regina thinks that Sam clearly only wants to date the poor -- an impression that is confirmed when she hears that Sam kissed Todd.
Clip-Clip-Hooray! Andrea has joined Sam and Dena at the do-it-yourself topiary shop. Is that a real thing? Sam shows Dena the project she made. Dena guesses that it's a moose head, but it's actually a butterfly. Sam starts to make her pitch about the endangered insects when Andrea interrupts to talk about how dangerous a bad chair can be. They talk over each other until Sam shouts out "Save the butterflies!" and then explains to Dena that she needs her to speak with Chapman so he'll call off the bulldozers. And then Regina shows up to sit at the next table and do her own topiary.
