What is the Subject? Joey. What is the verb? Bought. What did Joey purchase? Did Joey purchase a girlfriend? Did Joey purchase a cup of coffee? Which did Joey do. What did joey actually do? Did the store have girlfriends for sale? Where is this store? I want to buy a girlfriend! We have decided that Joey purchased a girlfriend. That makes the girlfriend that Joey purchased the direct object of the sentence. What did Joey do with this girlfriend that he purchased. He gave her to a cup of coffee. That makes cup of coffee the indirect object. Of course anytime we can rewrite a sentence so that we can put a to or for in front of a phrase, we make it easier to find the indirect object. Let's rewrite the sentence.

Joey bought a cup of coffee for his girlfriend. Now it is clear what joey bought. It is clear what is the direct object. It is clear who he bought it for, the indirect object.
