In the special meeting room, Steven has called a meeting with Harry, Marla, Lauren, and Dick Teachie, on the subject of: "Drugs." He mentions the baseball team's problem, and also that Sylvie Platt's anxiety attack may have had something to do with methamphetamines. He also asks if Harry's incident in the hallway had to do with drugs, and Harry says it was personal, which earns him a look from Lauren. "I'm calling you in here because you seem to be the teachers who are most connected to the student body, and I am open to any ideas." Dick Teachie talks about how there are two issues: the recreational drugs, like E, which he feels they've put out the message about, and the stimulants people use to study and so forth. Lauren agrees that the latter is a big problem, and the same standards should be applied to academics as to sports. "This is way way overdue." Steven says he's going to call an assembly, and have Marla talk. "Oh, I'll talk, but not to the students; I want the parents. I've done enough preaching to the kids, I want the parents." Maybe she heard what I said earlier. Scott looks at Steven, who looks back. I guess they're wondering if they should bring Marla the parents.
In the special meeting room, with Scott and Steven (ooh, time lapse), Union Rep is defending Benji. We recognize him from when he explained to Dick Teachie why he couldn't use the N-word, ever, under any circumstances. Union Rep explains that he doesn't even need to read the emails, because their content is irrelevant: "He didn't use any school computers, or websites, and he believed the girl to be of age." He says that Dr. Harris has committed no infractions, since teachers are allowed to have private lives, and Steven cannot legislate that. "The only thing you'll succeed in doing is generating a lot of bad publicity, and he'll still be teaching chemistry in the morning, only not as effectively because of the scandal. Come on. These are not grounds."
Harry catches up with Ronnie on the staircase, and she admits to Harry that she gave Druggie Bobby the $2000. "You gave him two thousand dollars?" Harry explains that she can't go to the police now, because she'd be incriminating him, which would be his third strike, and she'd be incriminating herself, seeing as she banked a drug deal. He asks her why on earth she did this. "Because I believe his brother might be killed, and I had the means to prevent it, and I don't need the lecture." Harry suggests they go to Bobby's house, to at least see if he's still alive. They plan when to go, and Ronnie tells him she doesn't need the look, either, and walks away. I guess he gave her a look. It's hard to tell while typing.
