Tea and sympathy at the Ryan Home. Jen talks about how she used to think her mother sent her to Grams's house to punish her, but she doesn't think that anymore; she thinks her mother really loved it there, because she'd find any excuse to bring Jen up to Capeside. "Those were good times," Grams muses, pouring tea, "but sad, for her." Jen asks why, and Grams observes that some people spend their lives "chasing the happiness they had in high school." She adds acidly, "Thank goodness that won't happen to you." Heh. Jen's like, "Huh?" and Grams makes fun of the gang for "carrying on" and getting "so dour and depressed about everything -- things can only get better from here." Tee hee! Jen laughs. There's a knock at the door; it's Jack, who got halfway home and decided he didn't want to leave Jen and Grams alone on their last night. Grams chuckles, "Another sentimentalist," and hands Jack the cookie jar. Jack, triumphantly: "Yes!" Aw. More packing-related banter before Jen asks if Grams really isn't sad to leave the house. She's not; she finds it "rather exhilarating," and says that the three of them "are about to embark on a greeeeat adventure." Jen smiles, then asks if she and Gramps always lived in the house, and Grams reminisces about how they lived with Gramps's parents for a while ("I would not recommend that" -- ha ha!), and about their first apartment, and how they used to sleep up on the roof in the hot weather, and they'd look at the stars and the lights from the summer houses and listen to the music from the parties, and they liked the summer houses so much that they decided to buy one and live in it happily ever after. Aw.
