This episode of “The Mindy Project” opens with Mindy in post-breakup mode: crying, ordering takeout, and listening to Les Mis. On her way into work, Mindy trips and falls over a parcel belonging to a lawyer in the building named Cliff Gilbert (Glenn Howerton). Mindy storms in Gilbert’s office, threatening to sue for slip and fall, but Gilbert easily confuses Mindy with legal jargon.
Back at the practice, Jeremy reveals a new sign after changing the name from Schulman and Associates to Pearson, Castellano, Reed and Prentiss. Mindy reveals that she and Casey broke up. After failing to implement “heartbreak days,” Mindy’s cornered in the break room by Morgan, who tells an uncaring Mindy that all of his ex-girlfriends have magically gone on to fall in love with amazing guys.
Danny is interrupted by new doctor Peter doing the cinnamon challenge while being egged on by the staff and gets a mouthful of cinnamon in the face. Danny storms into Jeremy’s office, demanding that he be fired, but Jeremy claims that he’s a good doctor, which Danny observes while he playfully connects with a patient.
At home that night, Mindy’s nursing another bottle of wine while looking at a romantic booth photo picture of her and Casey. Morgan shows up at her apartment with treats, hoping that he and Mindy will be able to work through her heartache together. A drunken and desperate Mindy remembers Morgan’s “magic,” and aggressively launches herself at him. Morgan fights off Mindy, eventually wrapping her up in a pizza box to calm her down. “If there’s any chance that your power is real, I need to try” Mindy desperately whines. Morgan can’t stand the sight of Mindy crying, so he agrees. “I’ll work my magic by having sex with your body.” While Mindy goes to brush her teeth and freshen up, her sobriety kicks in and she reacts badly to a naked Morgan surrounded by candles.
Meanwhile, at the hospital, Peter’s telling a story about a double date using Danny as a stand-in, and goes too far by grabbing Danny’s package. Danny and Jeremy decide to fire Peter, but his begging and flattery easily win over Jeremy, who gives him a second chance on the spot.
