Episode Summary

The Angels go to a Happy Hour at the Monte Carlo, a bar run by one of Tess's former assignments. It is here that Monica learns that Zoe, a girl she saw earlier in the park, is her assignment. Zoe is lonely, heartbroken, and trying to come to terms with the end of a relationship with a great guy, Jeff. Her friends, Patty, Penny, and Maggie, try to cheer her up and help her "Get over him." The next day at work, Monica is hired to take over for Patty, who quit her job to get married. As the day progresses, Gloria arrives to fix all of the office computers, and Billy, an RDS delivery guy shows up with some packages. During his time in the office, his attention is solely focused on Zoe. Monica immediately notices the attraction, though Zoe is oblivious. Billy leaves and the girls go about their day eagerly awaiting Happy Hour. The clock strikes six, and they all hurry off to the Ladies room to get dolled up. Billy arrives with some apple strudel for Zoe. When he is unable to find her, Monica tells him that she will be at The Monte Carlo later on, if he wanted to show up. Billy's not sure, but he says he'll think about it. Monica joins the girls in the ladies room, and both she and Gloria are forcibly made-over with make-up, and high heels. At the Monte Carlo, Tess and Andrew, hang out at the bar with Betty, the owner. The girls arrive and take a seat at their usual table. Penny waits nervously for her blind date while Zoe continues to pine over Jeff. Surprisingly Jeff shows up with a rose, but the rose is yellow, and he's only trying to make a gesture toward their lasting friendship. He leaves, and Zoe struggles to regain control over her emotions. Penny's date arrives, and she heads off to another table with him. Billy arrives, looking completely different out of uniform, and hangs at the bar afraid to approach Zoe. Andrew moves over to him, and with the help of Betty, convinces him to take a chance. The girls spot him talking to Andrew, and are surprised when Monica speculates on the object of Billy's affection. Billy approaches the table and asks Zoe to dance. She accepts and they get to know each other better on the dance floor. It is soon obvious that Billy is a wonderful guy, and that he's crazy about Zoe. After a while, he has to leave. He gives her a parting kiss and heads for the door, Andrew offers to walk out with him. Zoe is very happy. The next day at work, Zoe goes about her day trying to stay focused on the job and not her memories of the previous night. After a while she begins to doubt Billy's feelings because he hasn't shown up with his deliveries yet. Finally an RDS delivery guy shows up but it's not Billy. Zoe demands to know where he is. The delivery guy, Dave tells her that on his way into work, Billy was killed by a drunk driver. Zoe is devastated. She heads to The Monte Carlo to drink away her sorrows. While she's at the bar, a sleazy guy, Peter, continues to hit on her until she agrees to go home with him. Monica and Andrew arrive and stop her. Monica reveals that she is an angel, and that God loves her and loves Billy, and it broke His heart just like it broke hers. Monica assures her that love doesn't need to be saved for just one person, that you can love someone while they are there and that's enough. She tells Zoe that Billy died with no regrets because he told her how he felt. All that Zoe has to do is look to God, and listen for His answers, because He created love, and He is love.moreless
