Then of course we get a bunch of shots of random student extras exchanging "check out the balls on It Girl" looks, just in case we didn't know to root for Joey, like, whatever, he'll become her mentor, nobody cares, move on already. Flip-Flops continues to semi-beam at Joey before blithering about how he thought he'd teach today, but he doesn't know if he has much to offer, "what with the tenure and the published articles and all." Joey half-smiles as he introduces James Joyce's the girl on the beach by saying that he's "too hackneyed to illuminate the subject, but maybe someone else can shed some light." Then Flip-Flops calls on another student. Across the room, Joey catches Oliver's eye. He wiggles his brows at her by way of congratulations, and she smirks back.
On a studio lot, Dawson sits in an office, wearing red lipstick and struggling with an email to Joey. A testicle croons, "How can you say that I don't know you well?" Dawson types that he "was going to call" Joey about five times yesterday, then grimaces at his laptop. Just then, Todd barks at him that "break's over," so Dawson deletes the whole thing and flounces into another room.
Next week: Catfight over Dawson. Yeah, you heard me. And Joey kisses Oliver.
