The stairwell. Scott, Jeremy, and Meredith are hanging out. Actually, Meredith is suggesting a whole list of activities that she, and Scott, and Brooke, and Steven, and Jeremy can all do together. Scott and Jeremy just look uncomfortable. Jeremy tells his mom to just take it slow, and she gushes, "My son dating the principal's daughter. I am so proud. You're the vice-principal. Brooke's father's the principal. It's like a royal family. Danny! Hello! Hello." This last is directed at a passing Dick Teachie, who remarks on how happy Meredith looks. "Jeremy and Brooke Harper are becoming an item." "How nice."
The Un-geon. Harry is seeking legal advice from Ronnie on the lawsuit he may have just triggered. She seems to think it's unlikely to happen, but she tells him that, first of all, it's a conflict of interest since she teaches at Winslow, and that it's not the type of law she practiced in any case, and that she's no longer practicing at all, and finally that he's obviously not looking for legal advice. He says he's not there to talk, so she's all, "Mind if I talk? You have issues with grieving, Harry. And whenever it comes time for you to mourn, you run." He insists that he's not cutting it as a teacher. "I never even asked him what he wanted. I just decided what I thought was best. It's what I do with everything. I push, to make myself feel good. And all he wanted to do was finish that damn book." Um, so you did know what he wanted, then -- right, Harry? I guess that's just a technicality, though. "And I made him feel like he was failing in the end, just like Danny said." Harry says that he's gone dead inside, and Ronnie counters that Max is dead. "Maybe part of you died with him. I guess that can happen to a teacher who is as connected to his students as you are." Oh, come on. Could we maybe have one episode where none of the teachers tells one of the other teachers in the school who's feeling down that they're really great? Thanks. Harry's not budging, and Ronnie barks at him, "There are people here who need you, Harry. Me included. I'm only here because of you." Harry says, "I don't just quit. You know me, Ronnie. But I just can't do it anymore." Yeah, what exactly is their history? I mean, they were "friends" in college, right? But I kind of want to know more about what's up with that. Not that I think they dated, necessarily. She is six inches taller than him. Even with the goofy new haircut.
