To the strains of L'il-lita's song about life being gone in a flash, Dick Teachie comes home late, for the third time this episode. He finds this time, on the coffee table, an engagement ring on a piece of paper, with a heart drawn on it, surrounding the ring. He picks up the ring and sits on the couch, alone this time. Remembering, I guess, braces, and ice cream nights.
Next week: Someone steals the Hook, and Scott goes on the warpath; angry parents come to school with the police because a student had sex with their underage daughter, thereby committing statutory rape; a student ODs, and Brooke Harper is there; Steven wants to know if Brooke is using drugs; Brooke gets offered drugs at a party.
