The nurse's office. Ronnie is checking on Melissa, and is surprised to hear that she's at the hospital, being examined by a gynecologist. Until the nurse tells her that Melissa is pregnant. At which point, she's surprised to hear that Melissa is pregnant. Uh-oh. More like "Mel-ita."
At the hospital, Ronnie chats with Mel-ita's parents in the waiting room. They explain that they know their daughter is about five months along, and they're aware that she'll soon have to move to a continuation school. Ronnie asks if she's ever given an indication of not wanting the baby, and tell them the whole Olympic-diver story she heard from Tokes Joint. "He doesn't think it was an accident." They look troubled, and say they'll talk to Mel-ita. "You haven't noticed any signs of depression or erratic behavior?" They say no. Ronnie asks who the father is, and they say, "Her boyfriend. He's not too happy about this, but we've tried to let her know that she's not facing this alone." I mean, one of them says part of this, and one says the other part, but who cares, because as we'll see later, they're a very. Close. Family.
Harvey's room. "And he said you can't speak at all?" Marla is asking him incredulously. Though she does grant that Harvey's speech was insane. He says he just wants to make everybody proud, and she's all, "At the risk of sounding cruel…I HATE YOU, YOU BASTARD!" No, she says, "At the risk of sounding cruel, why do you even still want to speak? When there's such a risk that you'll embarrass yourself?" He says, "I'm an institution here!"
Delineation Alley. Scott and Lauren. Incredulity. "She said that?" "Yes. She pretty much instructed me to invite somebody else. Look, Scott, if this is awkward…" But Scott insists on not being cowed by his girlfriend's evil manipulation tactics. Good for him. So they're still going to the symphony. So, good. Good. I'll see you there. And I you. Fine. Fine.
Dick Teachie's room. It's talk time, but Talk Time herself is nowhere to be seen. Instead, suddenly, the kids want to talk about God, and, you know, like, why we're not, like, allowed to have him in school? How convenient. The actor playing a kid called Landon does a really good job delivering this line: "I wanna know what the school gets so uptight when we welcome him into our hearts." Teachie explains that it's not the school that has a problem, but rather the law. "We got separation of church and state." Landon gives a really bad explanation of the law: "The law says Congress can't establish a religion. A student praying in school? That doesn't establish a religion." He also says some crap about, with the world being the way it is, "He" gives them hope and faith. Everyone in the room nods in agreement. What. Ever. I'm not saying this is a good thing, but a kid who said something like that in a classroom in a large public high school in Boston would meet violent opposition from a classroom full of agnostic civil libertarians with a much better understanding of the law. I'm just saying.
