I think everyone knows you like Jonah.
— Dina to Amy

"Safety Training" is the fourteenth episode of Season Three of Superstore, and the forty-sixth episode of the show overall.


When Mateo gets injured, Jonah tries to help him avoid Cloud 9 compensation for fear of his immigration status being revealed. Meanwhile, Amy attempts to convince everyone that she likes Kelly.


Let's invest in the breast!

In the Break Room, Marcus gives a presentation on cheese to the staff while Sandra hands out samples. After he names a few basic cheeses and asks what others exist, various types are named. He doesn't recognize any and shows a slide with a nursing mother and touts human cheese. The staff spit out the samples but he assures them it's just string cheese and then asks who wants to invest in creating human cheese. Kelly says she likes grilled cheese and Amy makes a snide comment to her. In the store Dina catches Amy watching Jonah and Kelly put up St. Patrick's Day decorations and kids Amy about her crush on Jonah. Dina warns Amy that staff are going to figure our her crush if she keeps being mean to Kelly. Amy doesn't think she's mean to Kelly so Dina has Sandra recall (using her amazing memory) various negative comments Amy made to Kelly. A tanned, naked man tries on a pair of swimming trunks in the middle of the store. (♫ Wang Chung - Everybody Have Fun Tonight ♫)

Don't you hate Tuesdays?

As Kelly is rushing to put up decorations, Amy makes friendly advances towards her. She tells Kelly that she considers her a friend and that her past comments were just jokes. Kelly isn't convinced and while they talk, a large hanging sign falls from the ceiling and crashes into a display. Kelly tells Amy she put up the sign and didn't know she needed to use bolts. Marcus tries to convince Jonah, Garrett and Mateo to invest in human cheese but Mateo is distracted by a customer he likes. Glenn discovers the mess from the fallen sign and as Kelly is about to admit to it being her fault, Amy takes responsibility. Glenn is surprised and tells Amy to clean the mess up. Kelly thanks Amy and as Amy downplays her selflessness and points out that no one got hurt, another sign Kelly put up crashes onto Mateo as he approaches the customer he likes.

That secret gets tastier and tastier.

In the Surveillance Office, Dina and Amy watch the video of Kelly improperly hanging a sign and Dina asks Amy why she took the blame for Kelly's mistake. Amy lies that she wants to show everyone she likes Kelly and Dina realizes it is due to Amy's crush on Jonah. Dina promises to keep the secret and vows to help sell the lie. Some staff gathers around Mateo as he is icing his wrist. Marcus and Justine both tell Mateo they received a settlement when they were hurt. Mateo doesn't consider himself a good negotiator so Jonah volunteers to help him. Marcus didn't know he could have negotiated for more money and thinks he should get hurt again. As Kelly helps Amy clean up the mess, Dina interrupts and tells Kelly to stop as she shouldn't being cleaning up "Amy's mess". After Kelly leaves Dina whispers to Amy that she's helping Kelly not suspect Amy has a crush on Jonah.

I'm terrified of heights.

In the deli, Sofia catches Marcus trying to cut his thumb off in the meat slicer. In the Break Room, Jeff offers Mateo a $1000 settlement. Jonah negotiates lamely and then says they'll take it. As Amy is about to re-hang the signs on a scissor lift, Glenn assigns Sandra to work with Amy and downplays the reasons why. As Jonah and Mateo look through the fine print of the settlement document, they discover that a background check is required which will reveal Mateo's undocumented status so they inform Jeff they are turning down the offer. Marcus continues to try and cut his thumb off but can't summon the courage. On the scissor lift, Sandra is crowding Amy and writing down every small mistake she makes. In frustration, Amy grabs her clipboard and the lift starts to move. Sandra grabs Amy, cries out in terror and the lift crashes into a display.

That is a lot of money.

Glenn gathers staff who have had accidents (which include Amy) for safety training. The staff wear orange trainee vests and Glenn takes them through the basics of mopping in the middle of the store. Myrtle thinks that "Caution - Wet Floor" signs are put out on the holidays. Garrett catches Marcus on a ladder and finds out he's trying to get injured but is too scared. Marcus asks Garrett for help and he accepts. Jeff approaches Jonah and Mateo and offers a higher settlement figure which he says is the final offer. When they turn him down, he keeps offering higher figures which to his frustration are refused. As Amy is mopping, an acquaintance from the PTA offers her sympathy over her divorce from Adam. Dina interrupts asking for a urine sample to find out if drugs are the reason Amy is having accidents which embarrasses her. In Glenn's Office, Jeff's boss is on the phone and Mateo is offered $50,000. When this is refused, Jeff and Mateo argue about their past relationship which embarrasses Jeff in front of his boss.

One day, out of the blue, BAM! You're rich.

In the Stock Room, Garrett ominously asks Marcus to climb into the box crusher while holding the start button. In the Warehouse, Glenn instructs staff on how to lift boxes. Kelly sympathizes with Amy and ponders admitting to her mistake but she's not sincere which bothers Amy. In the Surveillance Office, Amy tells Dina she feels she's overtaking the blame for Kelly's mistake. Amy wants Dina to show the video of Kelly messing up to the staff while she pretends to try and stop Dina. In the Stock Room, Marcus can't climb into the box crusher and says Garrett is freaking him out. Garrett says it's because Marcus knows the accident is coming. Garrett says he'll strike when Marcus has totally forgotten about him arranging for an accident and that he won't relent even if Marcus says he doesn't want to get hurt. Marcus is terrified.

The secret is out.

In the hallway, Jeff gives Mateo a settlement check of $10,000 and considers the matter settled. When Mateo still refuses to accept it, Jeff accuses him of trying to make him look bad in front of his boss. Mateo admits that he is undocumented and that is the reason he can't accept the check and why he broke up with Jeff. In the Break Room, Dina gathers the staff to show them the video of the sign falling due to Kelly's incompetence. Amy fakes that she doesn't want the video shown. Dina can't figure out how to work the playback and video of when the tornado hit the store is shown including Amy kissing Jonah. The staff gasp in shock, Kelly is stunned and Jonah and Amy are embarrassed.
