West Bev. Teddy is conspicuously missing from his class with Silver.
Out in the lounge, Navid makes all the business arrangements for the Nelly shoot while Dixon fills in all the fanboy information. He says they absolutely must have candy corn because it's Nelly's favorite. Navid thinks it's more important for them to have all the equipment, but Dixon says it'll all work out as he pops in his earbuds and grooves to "Country Grammar."
Out in the parking lot, Naomi sweet talks a cheerleader so she can borrow her. Just as she's about to take off, Max intercepts her to ask why she didn't show up in lab that day with her soil samples. She says she has more important things to do, but he thinks it's important to maintain his perfect GPA so he can get into MIT. She tells him to save his own ass by doing her work, but he refuses to cheat. He hops in her car, hell-bent to force her to collect soil samples wherever she's going.
Abbott Playhouse. The cast plays theater games as Annie does grunt work. She gets a phone call from Liam, who makes plans to stop by the theater soon. Their conversation catches the jealous attention of Emily, who devises to send Annie away on a frozen yogurt run.
Naomi and Max reach their destination: The groundbreaking ceremony for her con artist guru's spiritual center. The guru asks everyone to take a moment of silence in appreciation of the land. Naturally, the moment is interrupted when Naomi pulls up barking from her bullhorn that the guru is a fraud. "My bikini waxer is more spiritual," she blares, then attempts to lead a chant of, "Screw you, guru!" Nobody joins in. Naomi spots a reporter and tries to get him to write up her story. Instead, he makes fun of her for being a typical trust fund kid. Even the supplicants have a good chuckle at that one, and the guru gives Naomi a patronizing "Namaste" for the road.
Naomi runs off, and Max follows to make sure she's okay. She tells him she's not and updates him on her crisis of confidence post-swindle. She admits that she just wanted to feel special and important. Max likens her situation to The Matrix, or as Naomi knows it, "the movie with the hideous leather coats." Max assures her she's not lame for wanting to feel significant because everyone feels that way. She begins to soften to him, only to be reminded of his horrifying nerdiness when he jizzes himself over a rare owl flapping its wings overhead. He tells her all about how the bird is essentially endangered in California. She puts two and two together, and they realize that the state would not be able to sell this land if they can prove it's the bird's habitat, meaning she could get her money back. Naomi makes like Snuffaluffagus and tells Max to "Follow That Bird!"
