Yola discovers a photograph of a woman and child in Joe's wallet and her suspicions are aroused when he appears reluctant to explain who they are. Joe eventually reveals the woman is an old friend and the child is not his. He did have a relationship with the woman once, but it's long over. His reluctance to explain to Yola stemmed from the fact that he still feels he doesn't know her that well yet. They decide they need to spend some quality time together, getting to know each other, but the trouble is, they can never find a time when they're both free.
