Meanwhile, at Enchantment, Kendall tells Erica that she can figure out what Greenlee does around there without too much trouble. Greenlee scrambles to convince Erica that Kendall doesn't deserve to be handed her job. Kendall says no job, no retraction letter to the 'Exposer'. Erica thinks while both girls snipe and whine at each other. Erica offers to create a new position for Kendall, but she declines the offer. It's Greens job or nothing. When Erica refuses to fire Greenlee, Kendall says no deal and walks out. Erica then informs Greenlee that she IS going to give her job to Kendall. Greens is confused and angry. She reminds Erica of how she helped save Enchantment while Erica was rotting away in jail. Erica assures Greenlee that it will only be temporary and that once Kendall is gone everything will go back to normal, with a hefty bonus for Greenlee.

Kendall remembers about going to the circus as a child, just to enjoy the food. Ryan mentions Gillian's first ballgame and how she knighted a man because she made him spill his beer. Kendall asks Ryan to tell her about Gillian. He tells her that even after Gillian died he felt her near him, urging him to get on with his life. He tells about Gillian being poor royalty, and that the first time they got married it was because they each thought the other was rich. Gilly also needed a green card. He laughed about how mad Gillian would make him sometimes when she argued in Hungarian. Kendall jokes that she makes him mad too, and then tries to backtrack, telling Ryan that she didn't mean to compare herself with Gillian. Ryan jumps out of the car and Kendall moans that she is a moron for asking him to talk about Gillian. She picks up her cell phone and listens to the message from Erica about the Enchantment job. To her surprise, Ryan pops back in to the car with bags of cotton candy for dessert, seemingly unaffected by the talk of Gillian.
