Amy and Ephram, on their "date." Ephram asks if they should get some coffee. Amy says sure, and tells him that she thinks she's made a decision: she's going to Princeton. She starts to talk about how it's going to be so great, and New Jersey is really close to New York, and when they get an apartment together, it'll be so perfect! Ephram is like, "Wait a minute, sister. I don't know what I'm doing next year, but it might not include living in New York." Amy doesn't understand. Ephram finally has to tell her that they're not actually dating, and she can't plan his life around him anymore. Amy says she knows, but she totally does not. Ephram tells her how happy he is for her, and how proud of her, and how relieved he is that he wrote that essay. Amy's all, "YOU? You wrote the essay?" Ephram says Patch filled out the application, but he wrote the essay. Amy says she didn't know, but seems oddly not that upset about it. Ephram says it's not a big deal; she got in because of her grades, which...no, but whatever. Amy nods. Ephram says she can't make him a part of her college decisions anymore, because he has no idea what he's doing. Amy says it's fine; she gets it. Ephram goes to get their coffee, and we go to commercials.
We come back to Dimples's house. Veneers is getting ready to leave, praise the Lord and pass the vodka. Dimples tells his brother that he was doing just fine with Nina, until he showed up. Veneers says he's just calling it like he sees it. Dimples tells him to stick to his damn 1040s and retirement accounts. Veneers says fine, and pulls out the taxes. He tells Dimples that he's got a serious revenue issue, and he's not going to make it if he doesn't ramp up his patient load. Dimples says that's kind of hard with two other doctors in town. Veneers reminds him that he used to rake it in with all those cosmetic peels and microdermabrasion and everything. Dimples doesn't think there's a big market for that in Everwood. Veneers tells him to do what he wants, but he's not going to survive if he doesn't do something, especially if he's planning on taking care of Nina and Sam on top of that. Dimples says Nina doesn't need him to take care of her. Veneers: "Maybe not. But you want to." That is, I swear, the only thing he has said that hasn't been completely ridiculous. Dimples looks pensive. Veneers's ride honks, and he leaves. God bless us all.
