After Pearl broke down and told Laz that her love life was dead and that she was stood up by her blind date, Laz took it upon herself to make Pearl feel better. So Lazarus then called Tiro, her friend who is easy on the eyes and charming and gave a proposition to him. In this proposition, Tira is supposed to charm Pearl and get her to go on a date with him; however, Laz will pay him for his time and the dates.
