Meanwhile, Matt flirts with Lila while trying to figure out a way to get the pen cap. When she finally gives it to him, he was nervous when she remarks that Amanda should be more careful with her stuff. They make plans to go dancing and Lila in typical Scarlett O’Hara style, fashions a new dress out of a table cloth. Annoyed with Jake's preoccupation with Vicky, Amanda makes plans to move "Hadley" into Jake's old penthouse.
