Class ends. The quintet bursts outside in relief, and Luka offers people a ride. "I'm on in twenty," Abby shakes her head. Gallant is, too, so he'll walk her to the hospital. Abby promises to be quiet when she sneaks in after her shift. Carter proffers his hand to Luka, who shakes it enthusiastically and with equal good grace. Susan and Abby agree to make a coffee date sometime, and then everyone leaves Carter and Susan alone on the street. It's an awkward yet touching departure, shaded slightly by their heightened understanding of one another and the varied social strata from which they come. No, I'm just kidding! It's just dull.
"She's pretty great," Susan says, as Carter tries not to watch Abby leave. "Who?" he plays dumb. "Abby," Susan prods. "I didn't know her before and I didn't think I'd like her, but I do." Carter tries to change the subject by inviting Susan to dinner, but she scolds him for making a total idiot of himself during detention. He doesn't get it. "You participated in a duel, for one thing," she mocks him. Carter stares at the ground and blushes. "Kiss me," Susan instructs. Carter is confused, but follows his orders, and leans in for another frosty cold peck. "Was it there for you?" Susan asks. Carter clears his throat and calls it a "nice" kiss, which is also known as "the death knell." Both admit there's not enough chemistry between them for this to work out, and Susan cuts Carter loose. "Are you sure?" he asks, like he's this great catch. "I regret it already," she lies. "That gold-digger alarm should be clanging like a school bell." I wish Susan didn't obsess over the money thing all the time. Carter never, ever throws it around in her face.
Then, Susan does something few formerly jealous girlfriends do -- she encourages Carter to chase The Other Woman and unburden his soul. "Who? Tell her what?" Carter asks, staring at anything but Susan. "That you're desperately in love with her and can't live a moment without her," Susan prods. Carter blushes and starts laughing uncomfortably. "You'll figure it out," Susan smiles gently. "Don't you forget about me," Carter says. "Hey, hey, hey, hey," Susan replies. Carter hopes they can still be friends. They can. They part.
Carter turns around, though, with one more thing to say. "I used to have Weaver's locker," he shouts. "She never changed the combination." Susan can't believe Carter put the dildo in there. He's the Jock! He taped Larry Lester's hairy buns together!
