Bring me the head of Colonel Sanders.
Joey, suspiciously dolled up for a sailing outing, strolls reluctantly down the dock towards Richie Rich's yacht. Richie says, "Wow. You look amazing," and Joey does look quite pretty in this scene. He gives her a hand coming aboard and asks if she's "any relation" to the Carsons his parents know in Palm Beach; she says no, her family is "pretty much Manhattan bound," whatever that means. Richie starts dealing with the equipment, and Joey pitches in to help; Richie asks where she goes to school, and Joey lies, "Choate," and Richie comments, "It's a drag, isn't it?" and Joey says she kind of likes it, and Richie asks, "What's there to like about it?" Joey points out the privilege of going to boarding school, as opposed to getting stuck in Capeside "where nothing exciting ever happens." Richie says the boarding part seems "unnatural," what with the separation from family, and Joey says, "I keep thinking I'll get used to it, but I never do." Then, with their faces about three inches apart, they do a little I-thought-you-didn't-sail, I'm-a-woman-of-many-talents back-and-forth. Cut to a shot of Joey standing at the prow like a figurehead while Richie drives the boat and a Lilithite mewls in the background. I'd like to point out that, for a tomboy, Joey owns a fairly wide array of halter tops. Cut again to Richie and Joey playing Frisbee on the beach -- damn, how much did Whammo pay the producers, anyway? I mean, we see kids tossing the 'bee at least twice in every show! Anyhow. Richie says that his dad "doesn't really work, he just makes money," which seems like kind of an inappropriate thing to reveal on a first date; then he asks what Joey's father does, and Joey fibs that "he's the CEO of a huge conglomerate," and when Richie nosily inquires which one, Joey puts paid to that line of questioning by responding, "One of the nation's best-selling tampons." Richie wants to know, "So what's your boyfriend like?" Joey wonders, "Is this your backwards way of asking if I have one?" Richie just assumed that she did, and she asks why, and he answers, "The way that you carry yourself. You're really hands-off. It's like a clear radio signal, you know?" Joey looks perturbed as Richie says that, if he had a girlfriend, he'd want her to give off the same vibe, and then Joey asks lightly how Richie would feel if his theoretical girlfriend sailed off to the beach "with some mystery man." Richie wouldn't mind, as long as she didn't lie about it, and Joey looks perturbed again as he confesses, "Honesty is still the primary quality I'm looking for in a girl." Damn, those brickbats sting. Joey smiles to disguise her discomfort.
