So, you know, it's just gonna be a real quick little thing in the Break Room here. Just a fast, quick, easy, not-long shower.
In the Warehouse, a photo shoot of Dina, Glenn and Jerusha as "Alvin and the Chipmunks" is going poorly due to Dina's sour attitude. Wanting to document the events leading up to their child's birth, Glenn offers Dina $50 to smile which she does, woodenly. In the Stock Room, Amy is planning to take returned baby items until Jonah interrupts and points out she's stealing. They examine a high chair under a black light and finding multiple stains, it dissuades Amy from taking the returned items. In the Break Room, Glenn shows Garrett and Cheyenne other photos from the shoot which confuses them. Dressed in an ugly Christmas sweater, Dina has Sandra take photos for her Christmas card. Feeling the setting is too plain, Mateo starts pitching alternate photo ideas which intrigues Dina.
Fine. But I want to be Theodore.
Seeing a customer leaving with a new baby car seat, Amy lies that the seat is poor quality and tries unsuccessfully to get her to return it. Jonah proposes that he sign Amy up for the store's baby shower registry. Amy hates baby showers but when Jonah points out she doesn't have to have one to get 20% off everything on the registry and a free pack of diapers, Amy reluctantly agrees. Mateo pitches several photo ideas to Dina which she finds outlandish. After revealing she doesn't trust men with glasses, she gives in and listens to more pitches. Cheyenne and Sandra discover Amy is on the baby shower registry and her shower is that day. Angry they weren't invited, they confront her. Jonah tries to explain there is no shower but is cut off. Justine overhears and tells Sarah and Sayid who are also offended they weren't invited.
She doesn't want us!
Jonah convinces Amy to have a small shower in the Break Room. Amy mollifies herself that she'll be making the staff happy, but she's really doing it for the gifts. In the Warehouse, Mateo photographs Dina in a white costume with a polar bear. She loves the photos he shows her and says she's comfortable with nude pics. In the Break Room, Amy meets with Cheyenne, Justine and Sandra to plan a baby shower which she insists will be small and no-fuss. She's distressed when she hears their impractical gifts and suggests they use the registry and mentions she needs a car seat. At Coffee & Bakery, Jonah orders a cake and is met by Glenn who's heard about the shower. He mentions how much Jerusha would love one and takes Jonah's reply to mean Amy's shower will be for Jerusha too. Glenn starts to plan a full blown shower. Mateo shoots Dina as Mother Mary and as a sexy Santa. When shooting her dressed scantily, they're interrupted by Garrett who can't stop staring at Dina.
Yes, bitch! You are killing it.
You're a young girl from Nazareth.
I feel like I'm European!
This is a hot set!
While watching Sandra make the "Amy and Jerusha" baby shower sign, Amy is annoyed with Jonah and is dreading the large shower and seeing Jerusha's creepy friends.

At the shower, dozens of guests show which Jerusha attributes to adding her pregnant friend Diane to the celebration.

When a deliveryman interrupts the shower, Amy sees her way out and tells everyone the delivery is for her and she'll have to leave. The man is a stripper ordered by Bo for Cheyenne who grabs Amy and dances for her over her protests.
What flavor is that?
Mateo leaves the shoot with Dina to get a memory card but gets distracted by the stripper and stays at the shower. As they watch the stripper dance for Cheyenne, Jonah tries to justify the shower to Amy. The stripper comes and dances for Jonah which makes him uncomfortable and is some payback for Amy. Garrett asks Mateo how the photo shoot went with Dina, but staring at the stripper, Mateo doesn't hear the question. In the Warehouse, Dina is yelling for Mateo, desperate to get down and having to pee. After Amy opens her presents, which were all disappointments, Jerusha points out she forgot theirs. To Amy's delight, Glenn gives her the baby car seat she's wanted. As she hugs Glenn, she gives Jonah the thumbs up and he smiles back. Garrett notices and asks Jonah how long he and Amy have been dating. Jonah stammers a denial but finally admits it. Leaving the shower, Sandra walks through the Warehouse and comes across Dina hanging from the ceiling. Relieved, Dina calls out to Sandra, who smiles evilly and walks away.
