Although exasperated, Bill relents. At a bar the same evening, he meets Rose (Slate) who thinks she’s responsible for the death of her ex-boyfriend, and the two connect over their shared guilt. Bill thinks he has found his soul mate until she won’t give him her number the following morning. He’s consoled when Robbie tells him he’s off the hook for training—until he finds out that his brother’s new guide is Rose–a woman both brothers quickly begin to fall for.
