So, Robby and Sarah perform this little skit that I will absolutely NOT put down in print. It's not terrible. It's not incredible. It's high school. In a VO, Roadster talks about how Sarah has grown up and how she was raised with a lot of love from her mother and a lot of bad shit from her father and how she has some sadness there. Roadster goes on to talk about how kids with problems often grow up to have problems in their adult lives, but that Sarah isn't going to be that kind of person. "I have faith that she's gonna grow up and she's gonna prove the cycle of life wrong and not continue this repeated cycle like most people continue," he says in an interview. "She's gonna fight it. Be strong."
It would appear that Robby (yes, his name, in this recap, will now be "Robby" -- and shut up, because he, with that last statement, just earned the right to be called by his given name) and Sarah have almost come to a mutual meeting of the minds in regard to their relationship. She's grown. He's grown. They're separating. They're both going to go on and become very interesting adult-type-people. And I am DIGGING this about the two of them. So maybe Sarah's statement about a "mature, like, relationship" isn't so far off. They both realize that long-distance relationships don't work, and they're both going to move on. Wicked. I mean, WICKED. That is SO cool. God. Why weren't there more Robby-types around when I was in high school?
Graduation rehearsal. All the kids grab their caps and gowns and head to a fleet of yellow buses. I think. Oh, wait. Kaytee and Pablo are entering the school, Pablo holding a piece of pizza and wearing a weird-ass hat; Allie enters through another portal and sees Salima (remember her?) and hugs her, and Salima waves at the camera and cringes as the boom hits her in the head and screams at the crew to "get away!" There's a definite bacchanalian sense to this episode. It's like the producers decided to crack open a box of wine and film while drinking from plastic cups.
Speaking of which...
Allie hugs a counselor after she informs the counselor that she's going to college. "Now that school is over," she says in an interview, "my relationship with my mother is going to be ten times better." It'll be better because all the nitty-gritty of everyday problems and situations will be over. "All that responsibility will be lifted off my shoulders," Allie says. Back in the hallway, Allie thanks the counselor profusely. The counselor, by the way, is wearing a red-checkered tablecloth for a dress. No, it's not important. Yes, it's extremely unattractive.
