Coach brings Ryan, Jess's teacher crush, to the dinner as Jess's date. Jess tells Ryan that things can not go any further with them because she is over him and could lose her job. Jess goes to her friends and asks them what she should do, they tell her that she just needs to sleep with Ryan once and get over the feelings. So Jess goes to Ryan and tries to get him to sleep with her so they can just get their feelings out of the way and move on, but Ryan doesn't want any part of that; he wants a relationship with her. Ryan leaves and Jess gets advice from Nick -- he tells her that she is just afraid of moving on, but that she needs to make the decision and take a chance on Ryan. Jess goes and sees Ryan at his house and they begin a relationship.
