Wendy, Shane and Sam watch the John Lennon movie and the subject of the soundtrack comes up. Wendy suggests Shane go for it and Sal says Wendy can hook him up like she did before. An awkward silence befalls the room as they continue the movie. When Shane and Wendy get home, Shane gets mad at her for not telling him the truth about his previous job.

He insists she write the letter and tells her she's just mad that he got the job she wanted.
