It's a good job. But tomorrow is gonna be just like today, and I know that because today is just like yesterday.
At the Cloud 9 Store 1217, a superstore in St. Louis, Missouri, floor supervisor Amy Dubanowski is selling a knock-off engagement ring to Bo Derek Thompson not knowing he is the boyfriend of fellow employee Cheyenne Lee who is pregnant with his child. She tells store manager Glenn Sturgis she's taking a break. Jonah Simms is being interviewed by assistant manager Dina Fox who is attracted to him and asks several personal questions. Jonah is hired and runs to help a customer who he thinks has knocked down a toilet paper display. He's somewhat high-handed with the customer and it's not until Cheyenne asks the customer for a break that Jonah realizes he's talking to fellow employee Amy.
She's not a customer.
At his first staff meeting in the Break Room, Jonah further offends Amy. Glenn asks new employees Mateo Liwanag and Jonah to introduce themselves. Mateo is a gregarious, high-achiever and sees Jonah as a rival. Glenn wants to end the meeting by reading from the Bible but Dina has reported him to corporate and he isn't allowed. They argue and then Glenn welcomes them to Cloud 9. (♫ Theme from Jurassic Park ♫) Jonah gets work advice from wheel-chair bound Garrett McNeill and finds that Amy is the floor supervisor. Jonah tries to apologize for his earlier behaviour but ends up offending Amy further. He also finds that she doesn't wear name tags with her real name which she won't tell him.
Welcome to Cloud 9!
To get Jonah out of her hair, she gets him to re-price electronic items. Amy sees Bo proposing to Cheyenne and stops her before she can reply. Amy asks Cheyenne to think it over before she replies. An unattended baby jumps in a playpen. (♫ a-ha - Take on Me ♫) Jonah is re-pricing the items and waves at Amy down the aisle. Dina is behind Amy and thinks Jonah is waving at her. Amy notices many customers grabbing electronics and rushing to the check-out. Jonah has re-priced the items to 25¢. Amy rushes to shut the store down and chaos ensues. Customers rush the exit until Dina blocks their way and shoots a shotgun into the ceiling.
Another staff meeting is held to review what happened and Jonah mouths an apology to Amy who smiles back. Dina overhears Jonah asking Garrett if employees can date supervisors and smiles thinking Jonah means her. Later, Amy tells Jonah he should concentrate on not messing up instead of having fun. He believes in looking for beauty in the everyday and throws a plastic bag in the air in front of Brett. She walks away not impressed. Two customers smash their carts together. (♫ En Vogue - Free Your Mind ♫) Dina has Cheyenne put eyeliner on her anticipating a date with Jonah. Mateo tries to ingratiate himself to Amy and tattles that Jonah is goofing off in the parking lot. Jonah, Garrett and Glenn are canoeing shopping carts until Amy pushes Jonah's cart into a car. (♫ Ludacris - Move Bitch ♫)
Brett isn't impressed either.
An unattended child is using a potty. (♫ Nick Glider - Hot Child in the City ♫) Amy brings Jonah a peace offering and explains while she is holding a box of glow stars that she's serious at work because every day and every year is the same. It's closing time when a masked, armed robber bursts in and yells for everyone to get down on the ground. He rips off his ski-mask - it's Bo who performs a flash mob marriage proposal for Cheyenne. (♫ Jason Derulo - Marry Me ♫) Dina has already crawled away to the Surveillance Room and reported a robbery to the police. As Bo kneels and asks Cheyenne to marry him, Dina turns off the store lights. The ceiling is covered with glow stars put up by Jonah. Everyone stares up in awe. Jonah has created a moment of beauty and Amy smiles. (♫ Bassnectar - You & Me ♫)
Bo's flash mob proposal.
In the parking lot while the police deal with Bo, Cheyenne tells everyone that she accepted Bo's proposal. Dina tells Jonah he was never in any real danger and describes what she would have done if the robbery had been real. Cheyenne hugs Jonah and says that if he hadn't put up the stars she might not have accepted. Amy leaves and Jonah catches up to her and explains he just wanted this day to be different for her. She says thanks and tells him her name. Jonah leaves with Garrett while Amy looks up at the night sky, smiles, and puts her wedding ring on. (♫ Bassnectar - You & Me ♫)
