Joy is checking out the men in the waiting room and searching for good prospects. Elka tells her friend she should do the same now that her husband is deceased. Her friend feels a no-fuss haircut with no flirtation games won't get her very far.
Meanwhile, Joy discovers the man she flirted with was married. Elka's friend tries to talk to a man but fails miserably after noticing his rabbit has crusty eyes.
