Ryan Home. Jen lets herself in to find a realtor taking the Exposition from zero to sixty in eight seconds -- "the house just went on the market a few days ago," and she's sure it's not going to stay on the market long. A prepped-out middle-aged couple nods and eyes the walls, and Prepped-Out Husband makes noises about tearing out the upstairs room while Prepped-Out Wife says something about "lots of steel," like, yeah, these two whale-belt-and-twin-set-wearing sourballs know the first thing about Bauhaus design. Whatever. Jen interrupts, "That's my room." The realtor, responding without really acknowledging Jen, says nervously that "there's lots of possibilities" and suggests that the Prepped-Outs take another look around. The Prepped-Outs smile condescendingly at Jen and move off to continue appraising the house, and the realtor approaches Jen, introducing herself and congratulating Jen on "Boston Bay College, by the way," like, what? Jen's all, "Yeah, yeah -- who are you?" The realtor: "Didn't you know? Your grandmother's selling her house." Jen stares at her all, "Um, no. Now get out." And there's no way that Grams as written would put the house up and not tell Jen first. Pah.
At the Yacht Club, Joey sets up tables on the veranda; enter Mr. Kubelik, whom we met in "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang," to say he'd hoped to find Joey there and to ask if she's coming to his party the next night. Joey wouldn't miss it. Mr. K then puts his foot dead in it by asking if she's bringing "that charming boyfriend of [hers]," Pacey, since he "certainly livened up the last one." Joey takes about twenty minutes to stammer out that she and Pacey "kind of broke up." Mr. K is "sorry to hear that," and then asks if "[they're] still on good terms, right?" Yeah, like that's his business. Mind your own, Mr. K. Joey, thrown for a loop, lies that yes, they "talk all the time." Mr. K says that he and Dean Newman had hoped to "chat" with Pacey at the party "about a rather pressing matter." Joey expositions, "The dean of admissions?" Significantly, Mr. K says only that they have "an offer" that they want to discuss with Pacey. Joey babbles that in that case, she's sure Pacey would love to come to the party, and Mr. K says he'll see them both there. Mr. K takes his leave. Joey looks quietly thrilled.
