Today, GH opens with Sam and Jason at the coffee shop. Sam is talking about her interview at the Metro Court. She tells Jason she wants to be hired on her own merit, not because of whom she knows. She's worried she want get the job though. Jason tells her he could probably get her job doing something managerial in one of the warehouses. She tells him she wants someone to hire her because she has potential, not as a favor to someone else.

Meanwhile, at the Metro Court, a woman brings Mr. Maddox (the man who interviewed Sam) the background check they ran on Sam. The woman says that personnel say there's a problem. Maddox says that they'll have to get over it.

Over at the lake house, Alexis struggles to put a toy together for the girls. She pulls out her marijuana. The kids come down with Viola and she hides the pot behind her back.

He tells her that Bernie would be her boss and it could be a good opportunity for her to get some experience. Sam says thanks, but no thanks. Her phone rings. It's Mr. Maddox. He asks her if she's still interested in the job. She says yes. He tells her there is an opening for a desk clerk and he offers her the job. He tells her to come down to get a uniform and to fill out paperwork. Sam hangs up and she's as happy as a schoolgirl who just found out she got an A in calculus. Then she calms down and realizes that Jason may have called in a favor. She asks him if he did.
