Glenn, I don't want to tell you how to parent, but one of your kids is drawing on the back of Mateo's head.
— Amy
In the Break Room, Glenn has brought his foster children to the store in order to have a family picture taken for his wife Jerusha. The staff and kids are together and Leo draws a penis on the back of Mateo's head. Timur is undergoing therapy in which he constantly holds onto Glenn's belt and Marcus asks about Glenn's 25 year old daughter Kristen and then makes a creepy suggestion. T'Oliver won't stop eating Jonah's breakfast. In the store, Mateo is blue over his break-up with Jeff and in talking to Dina and Amy finds that neither thought he was attractive. Jonah entertains Leo, T'Oliver and Zoe (the three kids) with a magic trick which Kristen finds adorable. She introduces herself and she and Jonah hit it off.

I don't think he can hear you.
In the Warehouse, Glenn is retrieving a back drop for the family photo while talking to Cheyenne. She offers to take care of little Bobbie Sue. Mateo asks Marcus if he thinks Jeff is attractive to which he responds with an emphatic no. The three kids tell Mateo they could set up a display faster than he could so he lets them do his work for him. Glenn sees Jonah and Kristen flirting and flags down Amy. He confides that they dating would be a disaster as she is in school and Jonah would distract her from her studies too much. Cheyenne is playing with Bobbie Sue and turns away to talk to Garrett. When she turns back, Bobbie Sue is gone and she begins a frantic search. In the Surveillance Office, Cheyenne and Garrett are looking for Bobbie Sue when Dina catches them and offers to join in the search. Bobbie Sue is at a checkout playing with the scanner. (♫ Spin Doctors - Little Miss Can't Be Wrong ♫)

S02E18-Dina Cheyenne Garrett in surv office
Statistically speaking, she might be dead.
Jonah seeks advice from Amy on dating Kristen. Amy warns him that she is the boss' daughter but Jonah thinks Amy wants to keep him for herself. Cheyenne and Dina search the store while Garrett makes an announcement on the P.A. system that there's free candy at the front for Bobbie Sue. (♫ Vampire Weekend - A-Punk ♫) An Asian man presents himself to Garrett for free candy whose name is Bobby Suh. Dina and Cheyenne have looked everywhere. Bobbie Sue is hiding among many dolls. (♫ Dead Eye Dick - New Age Girl ♫) As Glenn is setting up the photo display, Jonah asks him if he can date Kristen while Amy and Timur eavesdrop. Glenn says yes even though he doesn't want to. He asks Amy to talk to Kristen to stop her from dating Jonah as he doesn't want to be the bad guy.

S02E18-Bobby Sue and dolls
A doll among the dolls.
At café, Amy tries to discourage Kristen from dating Jonah. She describes several of his true, annoying mannerisms which doesn't phase Kristen. She finally lies that he smokes crystal meth. In the toy department, Dina, Garrett and Cheyenne set up a trap baited with candy and make toddler calls over the P.A. system. Bobbie Sue is trying on lots of jewellery. (♫ Hall & Oates - Rich Girl ♫) In produce, Mateo has the three kids cleaning the floor under shelves. Leo finds Mateo's keys with the key chain that Jeff gave him for Valentine's Day. He starts to talk about Jeff to the kids. Jonah confronts Amy about her lie to Kristen. Amy explains that Glenn doesn't want him dating Kristen even though he said yes. Bobbie Sue steals a customer's fries at the café. (♫ Mr. Mister - Kyrie ♫)

He talks way too much about cheese.
Jonah tries to find out Glenn's true feelings about him dating Kristen and tells him the conversation he just had with Amy. Glenn says that Amy is lying and has a crush on Jonah. Jonah leaves and Glenn rues his lie to Timur. Bobbie Sue skips behind a pallet being pulled by Tim. (♫ The Soup Dragons - I'm Free ♫) At the photo backdrop, Jonah gathers Kristen, Amy and Glenn to find out the truth. Glenn and Amy both say the other is lying and argue back and forth until Kristen asks Glenn if he is meddling in her life. Seeing how anguished Glenn is, Amy relents and says she was lying and that she does have a crush on Jonah (even though she wasn't lying). Timur finally speaks and tries to tell the truth but Glenn shuts him up.

S02E18-The showdown argument
She's a sassy little liar!
At the café, Mateo is still talking to the kids about Jeff but stops, saying that they wouldn't understand his loss. Leo tells Mateo how his mom abandoned him in a store and this puts Mateo's loss into perspective. Zoe says there are four boys named Jeff in her class and Mateo takes this to mean there are plenty of other men for him to date. Dina, Garrett and Cheyenne still can't find Bobbie Sue when Glenn announces over the P.A. system for his kids to come for the photo. Cheyenne says she'll have to tell Glenn she lost Bobbie Sue when she comes into sight caught in the trap. Cheyenne hugs her while Bobbie Suh is seen eating a candy bar. Cheyenne brings her to the photo setting where everyone is dressed as characters from "Willow". While Marcus keeps messing up taking the photo, Jonah tells Amy he knows she was covering for Glenn. Glenn invites Jonah to be part of the photo and whispers to him that if he hurts Kristen, he'll murder him.

Out of the mouth of babes.

In addition, nine of Glenn's kids are seen in the Break Room while there are thirteen in photo shoot. Lastly, Bobbie Sue has three different hairstyles and adornments. Cheyenne might have been responsible for the hair changes but she had very little time for the last one as she needed to get Bobbie Sue to the photo shoot.
