At a picnic table outside, Jen "Mack Attack" Lindley tells Henry "Fondle" Parker about the prom, which evidently takes place the next weekend. At my school, we had to reserve for the prom at least a month in advance; you couldn't just buy a ticket the week of the event. And we didn't have separate proms for juniors and seniors, but I went to a really small school. I know you'll all sleep better at night knowing how we did things at my school. Not. ["I have to ask: A school as small as Capeside High would bother to throw a junior prom? Because I went to a tiny rural high school and we didn't get one. (Sep did also, and pointed this out to me via ICQ as she watched the episode.)" -- Wing Chun] Anyway, Jen blathers on about how it's a "ridiculous and embarrassing ritual" and how it reinforces gender roles and "punishes the geeks," on and on and on, all by way of showing how much she really wants to go but feels nervous about asking Henry to come with her. Henry sees through the rambling: "You've never been to a prom before, have you?" "Well, no," Jen admits, and starts babbling again about how much proms suck, but Henry interrupts her again: "So in other words, you're asking me to go." She nods and bites her lip: "Yeah." "I'd love to," Henry says. Jen beams. He puts his arm around her and they head inside.
