At the Proctor residence, Scott and Paula see to it that Brendan and Tommy are ready for school. Once their kids leave, Scott confesses to Paula he got drunk the night before and slept with his co-worker Tanya. Paula tells Scott to move out of the house internalizing her anger only to let it out when she shows up at the law firm later and she loudly berates Tim for failing to refill ice cube trays in the break room. Rebecca and Mrs. Hernandez follow when Paula runs crying to the boardroom. Mrs. Hernandez verbally chastises Rebecca who tries to make this all about her. Paula tells her friends she threw Scott out after he admitted to an affair. She worries that without him she wont be able to handle her children. Paula laments that a Law school class field trip to Sacramento over the weekend is now out of the question.
Across town, Josh is showing Anna around West Covina and takes her to the latest hang out Sugar Face. He invites her to an upcoming special event at the nightclub Spider's but Anna declines as she's going to be busy at the salon. At the Proctor residence, Paula frantically tries to get her boys ready for school only to learn from Tommy that Brendan has left on a cross country excursion. Rebecca suddenly arrives and volunteers to look after Tommy so Paula can go on her field trip. She apologizes for her taking Paula for granted and wants to make up for her selfishness by doing something for her friend for once.
When Scott tells Paula he slept with Tanya she jokingly replies she slept with "Nancy". This references the 1994 Winter Olympic scandal involving ice skater Tanya Harding and her rival Nancy Kerrigan .
Paula likens the mornings getting her kids ready for school to the film "The Hunger Games ". Rebecca references this movie as well when she volunteers to look after Tommy.
When Anna thinks West Covina is in the Inland Empire Josh corrects her saying it's a common mistake. This is a reference to an error in the song "West Covina" which has a lyric describing the town as "the pride of the Inland Empire".
