A mysterious man shuffles through the alley outside SOS. Just as he passes, a bulb lighting the area explodes. Inside the back room at SOS, a distracted Mateo asks Haley to do the day's books. Just as she settles in to do the work, the drug dealer calls Mateo and says "it's time to get down to business." Since Haley is sitting in the room, Mateo talks to the dealer like he's a delivery man and hangs up. He asks Haley to take the books home but she questions him, saying this is her one night out. She demands to know why he is so jumpy. He tells her he's worried he's not a good father because he's always at work. Haley is suspicious and is angry that Mateo seems to be keeping something from her. She leaves the back room angrily but runs into Ryan. The two of them sit down and have a chat. Haley tells Ryan she is worried she will be a bad mother to her newborn son and has been thinking about what he said about his mother that a bad mother will haunt you till the day you die. Chris, who is bartending, eavesdrops on their conversation. Later, Ryan asks Haley what she knows about Chris. Ryan says Chris is trying to be his new best friend but he doesn't want anything to do with him. Haley says he shouldn't worry because she suspects Erica will soon be occupying much of his time. Just before he leaves, Ryan tells Chris to stay out of his life.


Inside the back room at SOS, the drug dealer calls Mateo again. Mateo agrees to his demand. When Edmund arrives, Mateo tells him that he agreed to have drugs given to him in the alley and he would put them in his safe and wait for further instructions. In the alley, Mateo tries to turn on the light but notices it is out. He is approached by the mysterious man shuffling up to him. The man puts his arms around Mateo and Mateo pushes him away, assuming he is a homeless man. Mateo then notices a plastic bag of drugs in his pocket. He takes them back into SOS and shows them to Edmund, who says the bag contains a couple hundred hits of Ecstasy. Mateo says he did not see the man who gave them to him because it was dark, but he looked like a homeless person and wore gloves with the fingers cut out of them. Mateo grudgingly puts the drugs in the safe and says he fears getting caught by the police. Edmund says him he will not get caught and warns him that he must comply with the drug dealer's demands. Haley walks into the back room and says she hadn't left yet because she got distracted. She says she needs to call and check on the baby. After Mateo and Edmund leave the room, Haley tries to open the safe, but concludes that Mateo must have changed the combination. Meanwhile, Roger walks into SOS and orders a vodka. He gets a phone call from the drug dealer and tells him that he made the drop and is waiting inside SOS, as the dealer requested. Roger drops a glove with the fingers cut out of them but picks it up before anyone sees it.
