During the mission, Allie visits Cabe, who stayed behind, to inform him that her boss will be stripped from his position as alderman for accepting bribes and that Sylvester will be able to take his place. Sly initially rejects the offer, instead offering Cabe a trade; he will take the oath of office only if Cabe takes Allie to dinner. Happy and Toby secretly take advantage of freebies from reception venues while Paige struggles with her “best ma’am” duties. When she discovers their secret, they offer her a bribe from their haul. Later, things heat up for Walter and Paige when they see if the song Walter picked out for the wedding is suitable for dancing.
