At the most boring party of all, Mouse wants to leave and Maggie wants to stay and drink and keep pretending to be interesting. Mouse finds Pac-Man to play and wow, what a great scene. I want to watch it over and over again.
City Bennett and High School Walt seem to be having the exact opposite conversation that Carrie and Larissa just had. Bennett says that in the city, everyone is packed in so tight that everyone knows everyone's business, and Walt says he enjoys his privacy in Connecticut. Bennett keeps acting like he's doing everyone a favor, and Walt has him touch his chest to feel how quickly his heart is beating. It must be love, and not the side-effects of drugs. Bennett kisses Walt, and Walt backs off screaming, "I don't like guys! I like girls! I'm not gay or anything!"
Bennett tells Walt it would be OK if he was gay, and that he is gay. He, too, enjoyed a beard back home in high school, but Walt will not hear it. He calls Bennett a fag, in a moment without even a fraction of the gravitas using the word bore when Glee did it a couple years ago.
Walt runs away, and Carrie runs off to find that hot guy, leaving Larissa to choke on her own vomit. Mouse and Sebastian play Pac-Man against each other, then bond talking about their parents and smoking a joint. Dorrit gets scared watching Poltergeist alone. Maybe Sebastian/Dad isn't so bad after all.
Carrie tries to flirt awkwardly again, but she is really better at helping people than she is picking up gay men. Bennett admits that Walt ran away, and Carrie worries about him wandering the city streets alone, high on drugs. Wandering the city streets alone in the '80s would be enough to make me worry.
Walt has slowed to a pensive walk and comes across two gay men holding hands, who are quickly threatened and verbally assaulted by some no-good hoodlums. Walt breaks it up and the couple runs away, as the thugs turn their attention to Walt.
"This has nothing to do with you," they tell Walt, "unless you're one of them." Walt is defensive, but curious. He asks the thugs why they care, and happy to share their opinions, the thugs tell Walt that it is their opinion that homosexuals are freaks.
Instead of hitting the streets to find Walt, Carrie reprimands Bennett in Larissa's bedroom. They walk in to discover someone dressed as... the Beast from the live action drama Beauty and the Beast dry-humping Larissa. Carrie asks him what he's doing, and the he-cat does not seem to care that Larissa is asleep. He tells Carrie that five minutes ago Larissa was "into it," and that she's weirding him out so he's going to go find someone else unconscious to rape. Well, no one used the "r-word" because we already got dinged for using the "other f word" in this episode.
