The episode starts off with the gang at Charles' Medal of Valor cermony, only to find out that he is being

Boyle ane Peanut Butter

awarded the same award as Sargent Peanut Butter The Horse.

When the dectives return, Jake and Amy have a face off about how it is the last day of their bet. Scully then asks what the bet is, even though it has been brought up many times. A flashback then shows the two agreeing to the terms.

Next the focus is on Charles, who has been taking pain medication for falling of the stage during his award ceremony. It is revealed that it makes him drop "truth-bombs", which is him saying anything without filtering it first.

The focus is brought back to Amy as she brings in a perp for stealing $3,000 with one minuite to spare before the bet ends. She gloats at Jake saying that she will win, until he brings in 30 men for using prositutes, and 10 of them being it their 2nd felony. She then starts to freak out, seeing that Jake is about to win. When the minuite is up and he wins, music and streams come flying down as he dances up to Santiago with a ring asking her to go on "The Worst Date Ever" and she has to say yes.

Next it shows Jake outside Amy's apartment in his car embrassing her, while she comes out in a plastic dress while he wears a tuxedo top with cargo shorts.

Jake then lists the rules for the night, which are:

  • The date ends at midnight
  • He decides what she wears, what she eats, and where the go
  • No matter what happens, she can't fall in love with him

It then cuts to the bar where Charles is dropping truth bombs on people. Then Terry's wife, Sharon comes in with the Captain accidently tell her that Terry is back in the field, resulting in Sharon being mad.

Amy and Jake soon arrive with Jake making fun of her in front of everyone. She then goes to the bathroom as Jake takes a seat next to Boyle. Boyle tells Jake that the reason he is doing this to Amy is probably because he likes her. Jake objects to this saying he is just embrassing her for fun, like he always does.

When Amy returns Jake announces that he and Amy will dance to the Steerage Jig from Titanic, which Boyel then say its romantic with Jake objecting yet again. In the middle, Captain calls Jake over saying he needs him to go on a stakeout, with Jake protesting at first, but then decides to bring along Amy. They catch the perp, and decide that the date wasn't so bad.
