The Bar. The guy Joey told about the piercing incident? Hits on her, saying that they "don't have to kiss. There are other things " Joey -- and the world -- look disgusted. "My name is Tom. Hi," Tom offers. Joey tells him that she's sure he's a really nice guy and "a world-class macking master." But she's not interested. Tom bails, and someone else offers to buy her a drink. Joey says something about humor having no effect on stupidity and turns to blow the guy off again, but this time the boy in question is Charlie. "Nice," he says. "You really think you ought to bandy about words you don't understand?" Joey snarks. And Charlie spews some shit about how she doesn't need that defense mechanism with him because he just wants to talk. Yeah, I've heard that before. Apparently, "talk" sometimes means "take off your pants." "I'll start," he says. "Hi, I'm Charlie." Joey feigns interest, and asks why she's "the blessed one" who "piqued [his] interest." Charlie spills some of the worst pick-up lines ever, saying something about how Joey's really, really beautiful, but she doesn't KNOW she's so beautiful, which makes her even more beautiful, you know? Dude, lay off the gorgonzola. Joey shoots Charlie a rather hilarious faux-demure look. "I thought to myself. I want. To meet. That beautiful girl," Charlie announces. "Does this sort of thing actually work?" Joey twitters. Charlie wouldn't know; he's never done this before. God, what a crock! I want to smack this guy! He's that guy, that asshole guy that every girl falls for at least once and then curses forever after. "So you must have used a different tack with Jen Lindley, right?" Joey busts him. He stares at her, and eventually the tiny refrigerator light in his brain turns on. "Joey, a smart girl from Worthington," he figures out. "Charlie. A womanizer from Boston Bay," Joey snarks. Charlie dubs this event "deeply humiliating," but points out that "you can't blame a guy for trying." Joey raises a brow. "No. But you don't have to have a drink with him," she points out, and walks away.
