Bar. Jack. Pacey. Lots of other guys. Pacey and Jack sidle up to the bar and get some brewskis. Pacey isn't sure if they ought to be "doing this," given Jack's "recent track record" with the old bottle. What if they run into one of his erstwhile frat brothers? Jack snorts and says that they're not likely to run into any members of Sigma Ew in this particular bar. Pacey shrugs, and says that he digs this watering hole. Cheap drinks! Late-night munchies! "Only problem is, there's not a lot of women here," he says. Jack swallows a guffaw. He smiles at Pacey. Pacey smiles back. "Jack," he begins, "this wouldn't happen to be a…?" Jack takes a sip of his beer. "Yeah, pretty much," he says. "That much, huh?" Pacey says. Jack nods and looks proud of himself. "It doesn't seem like it's all that…" Pacey begins. "Gay?" Jack prompts. "That's why I like it. Because I'm not really all that gay. Hell, Pacey, I'm not gay at all. I'm getting married, as a matter of fact, did you hear that? Married! To a woman!" Then he excuses himself to powder his nose, but turns back en route to the bathroom, and asks Pacey if it bothers him to be in a gay bar. Pacey shrugs. "Like I've never been in a gay bar before!" he says. Jack smirks and takes off. "How YOU doin'?" some random guy asks, slinking by Pacey. Pacey stutters something incomprehensible.
Radio Station. Jen and The Wig are hanging out and talking about Donovan, of all things, a conversation that leads The Wig to comment that Jen "sounds like someone who doesn't like losing control." I know, I have no idea how he got that from disliking Donovan, either. Jen sniffs and asks that they leave "personal stuff" out of this, and just "stick to the music." How much do I hate this whole crap about "the music"? This isn't Almost Famous, people. The Wig wonders lecherously if Jen has a boyfriend. "That's none of your business," Jen sniffs. The Wig's all, fine. "It's over," he says. Jen's all, "What? My relationship? How do you know that? Who are you? How dare you? Will you marry me?" "The song," The Wig tells her, nodding at the controls. Jen chuckles nervously and races over to kill the dead air. Meanwhile, Audrey and The Beard are yammering about The Beard's life back in Charlottesville. He takes out his wallet to show her a picture of his girlfriend and mentions that she's getting her Ph.D. in cultural anthropology. Audrey examines the photograph dully. The Beard looks at her and says that she must think his life is very boring. I think this entire subplot is very boring. "Doesn't seem very rock and roll, does it?" The Beard asks. Audrey agrees, and asks if he ever has the urge to "do something bad." The Beard shrugs. "Yeah. But I don't. I love my girlfriend." Yada yada yada, this is the part of the episode where Audrey learns about Life And Love from a stranger.
