Mandy Straussberg and Liz nearly destroy their friendship while fighting over Seth Young. Meanwhile, Connie argues with Robert Mitchell, prompting her to go to Washington, D.C., to apologize in person.
Seth Young becomes the object of Mandy’s affection and she tries to get closer to him. Mandy signs up for evangelism class after learning that he’s one of the leaders. Liz, however, is picked to be Seth’s evangelism partner, and Mandy takes it that she’s stealing him. They fight, and both girls refuse to apologize first. “So your lifelong friendship is over?” asks Connie. It appears to be.
Meanwhile at the J and J Antiques, Jack and Joanne learn that a church they support in Sri Lanka has burned down. To raise money to rebuild, Joanne wants to sell an old compass from the Gallery, and the Smithsonian (in Washington, D.C.) is interested! Only her husband Jack doesn’t think she should go. Jack and Joanne apologize to one another for the fight, though Jack says he’d feel better if someone else went with her on the road trip. Connie volunteers (so she can "apologize to Mitch in person"), and the two ride off into the adventure that awaits.

- What can you do to save them?
