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.
