Night falls on Capeside. At Grams's House of Discipline, Jen is telling Joey that "walking in heels is probably the hardest part." Joey walks tentatively across the kitchen with a dictionary balanced on her head -- at least for a few steps, whereupon it falls. Joey, exasperated, sinks into a kitchen chair and exhales, "Why are you doing this?" Jen starts telling her about poise and grace, and Joey clarifies, "No, I mean, what's in it for you? I mean, the fact that I've been a first-class bitch to you since the day you got here is pretty much public knowledge." Jen says that in New York she didn't hang out with a lot of girls, and has never had close girlfriends and believes the case is the same for Joey: "I don't know, don't you ever feel like you're missing out on something?" Joey very seriously says, "Why don't you just go hang out with the Capeside Pep Squad? [Because that's two seasons away!] I mean, associating with me won't exactly send your popularity points soaring up the social Richter scale." Jen says, "For the same reason you don't, all right? Because they're a bunch of mentally arrested airheads." Joey looks pleased. Jen goes on: "You know, your perception of me is almost as misguided as your perception of yourself. If you want to win, we're going to have to work on the self-esteem issue, but first --" she pulls Joey up and moves her back to the doorway with the dictionary, "back to the basics."
