Back in the car, Dena is complaining about how restraining orders are just so unfair. Sam agrees, wondering how you're even supposed to measure 1,000 feet. Dena: "Fourteen telephone poles."
It's now two days before the present, and Sam is Andrea's office, complaining that Andrea didn't think to tell her about the restraining order. Andrea actually has Sam's legal files in her office, because she represented her in the restraining order proceeding. Sam thanks her, but Andrea points out that she didn't do it for free. If Andrea were just a little smarter, she would claim that Sam still owes her money for the legal work. Sam wonders what kind of obsessive things she did to merit a restraining order, and is pretty surprised to see that her misdeeds included kidnapping his dog, waiting for him in his tanning bed, and stealing his clothes when he was in a store dressing room and making him come out in his underwear and talk to her. A little bit of Bad Sam creeps out as Sam starts giggling and decides the last one is kind of funny. However, Sam decides the restraining order is no laughing matter, especially since the new her is 100% less stalky. Well, make that about 50%, as she decides that she absolutely has to track him down to make him understand that she's not stalking him. So she distracts Andrea by throwing a stapler at her, grabs the file, and quickly memorizes the guy's number. (His name is Nathan, by the way.) As she leaves, Andrea points out that he's likely to have changed his number to avoid the crazed stalker.
Cut to Sam, standing outside Nathan's apartment door and begging him to speak to her. He refuses to open the door. After she begs and pleads, he tells her through the door that he guesses people can change and that he's very glad she came to speak to him. And as she gratefully accepts this quasi-forgiveness, we can see him (holding his dog) creeping out onto the fire escape and, um, escaping.
Back in the car, Dena tells Sam that she made an effort and that there's really no way to force Nathan to listen to her. Except that Sam had an idea. Cut to Nathan in a parking garage getting into his car. Sam pops up from the back seat and tells Nathan that running away from her was kind of rude. So, New Sam is 0% less stalky than Bad Sam. Nathan screams and wonders how she broke into his car. She seems pretty surprised to discover she had that ability as well. Anyway, Nathan is freaking out and trying to call a neighbor to check on his dog while Sam tries to explain the amnesia to him. He tells her, "Amnesia doesn't exist. It's just a cheap and lazy storytelling device." Oooo, very meta. I mean, Mehta. Zubin Mehta -- he always likes to make jokes about the music he's conducting. Sam explains the amnesia thing, and Nathan actually starts to believe that maybe she's really no longer a crazy stalker woman when a convertible pulls into the parking garage with "We Got the Beat" playing on the radio. Sam's sudden flood of tears undermines the calm, sane façade she's trying to project, and she runs away before Nathan calls the police or hits her with some pepper spray.
