S1 EP8 – Wedding Sale: When Cheyenne and Bo intend to make lavish purchases during the store’s annual wedding-themed sale, Amy tries to talk to them about the cost of having a child; Glenn tries to show his support for gay marriage.
You get to see a softer side of Dina in this episode. Well in some parts, not when she chased a homeless man. But it was nice to see her and Amy bond a little. She’s very strange, but also a bit endearing.

This is one of those episodes that has a few funny moments but none that are really worth mentioning. The part where Dina is chasing down Bo in her truck while he’s riding a bike is so funny. It’s only a few seconds but you really feel like she’s going to plough him down.
Best quotes and one liners
GLENN: God doesn’t make mistakes very often, but when he does, you have to throw them right in the trash.
GARETT: Does this make sense To anyone else? White dress, $30. White wedding dress, $200. Is there cоcɑіnе in this or something?
DINA: Ma’am, I have the arm strength of a chimp, but there is just too much real estate back here. I’d have to dislocate your shoulder.
CUSTOMER: Do it.
DINA: Okay. But you’ll have to teach one of your bridesmaids to do this on the day.
GLENN: But do you know that in this entire sale, there is not one section dedicated to gay weddings?
MATEO: Gay people use the same decorations as straight people. We just use ’em better.
DINA: You know, we can keep looking for Bo, but the guy can’t bike forever, especially not with those quads. What don’t you like him? Is it the moustache?
AMY: No. I got married at 19. I know what they’re in for. I mean, you miss out on a lot of stuff. I mean, you get stuff too, obviously, but the money’s always tight, and you’re five steps ahead of where you should be but also five steps behind where you should’ve been.
DINA: But the moustache is bad, right?
AMY: Strawberry blondes should not be allowed to grow facial hair. No. That should be in our constitution.
Final thoughts and fun facts
In this episode, Amy’s name tag is ‘Roxy’.
The strip mall with the nail salon and gun range is a real-life strip mall in Burbank, California. The gun range is actually a massage parlour with another sign over its own, and massage signs are visible in its windows. The nail salon is indeed a nail salon in real life, however, its sign was changed from “Cali Nails”, due to the show taking place in St. Louis, Missouri.
Also, this was the first episode to have scenes that aren’t inside the store or in the parking lot. This becomes more of an occurrence but it’s always a little jarring to see the characters outside.
At the end of every episode, the card for the production company Spitzer Holding Company features a variety of items they specialize in. In this episode, they list Medical Technologies, Self-Storage, and Internationals.
