Back at the university, Treat is taking Ephram and Delia on a tour. Ephram is super-bored, and tells Treat that Delia died at the "last place that wasn't the place you were looking for." Treat is apparently looking for some parking lot that is important to him in some way. Delia complains that they've been walking for hours. Ephram bends down and lets Delia jump on his back. Dear God, I love him. Uh, can I get a ride after Delia? Treat says he thinks he knows where it is. Ephram says they're late for Triple D, and need to do this some other time. Treat doesn't care. Strains of REM start to play, and we cut to
Colin, Amy, and Bright, driving a cute little red convertible. Amy and Bright tease Colin about where he's taking them, suggesting Disneyland and other wacky places, but Colin won't tell. Amy interrupts Bright, "Ooh, I love this song!" She turns up the radio, and they all sing along to "Man On The Moon" for a little while. Bright has a pretty nice voice, which makes Amy roll her eyes and tell Colin to turn it back down. Aw. I like singing Bright. Shut up, Amy. Bright sings anyway, and eventually they all join in on the "If you believe...they'd put a man on the moon" part, smiling and laughing and grinning at each other, and if this weren't Everwood, it'd be an awful, cheesy scene. But it is Everwood, though, and we're all forced to love it and hate ourselves for it in the morning. Don't act like you didn't, either.
Brown Family, arriving at Triple D's tea. Pretty fancy house. Triple D greets them, and Treat groans, "You didn't!" Triple D laughs, and says, "Everybody's waiting for you." He leads Treat into the next room, where a huge crowd is gathered. Delia is incredulous. "Are they all here for DAD?" she asks Ephram. Triple D introduces Treat to the crowd as "the prodigal in both senses -- Dr. Andrew Brown." Everyone applauds. Ephram stares, clearly seeing his father in a new light. Daddy's a ROCK STAR!
Back to Amy, Bright, and Colin. Bright: "So this is your big surprise. Mile High Pancakes?" Colin tells Bright that they're only at the halfway point, and to chill. Mmm, pancakes. Amy gets up to use the restroom, and asks Colin to order chocolate chip pancakes for her. Mmm, chocolate chip pancakes. Damn, I'm hungry. Bright asks Colin what's the difference between two confusing items on the menu. Something about bacon and sausage. Colin laughs, and tells Bright he asked the same question the last time they were there, and the difference was "a hash brown and twenty-seven cents." Colin is making me CRAZY with all this "oh, I'm so CHARMING now! No more Krazy Kolin! Love me! Love ME!" business. Because I need to hate him, and based on the previous few episodes, I should. Yet now he's all nicey-nicey? Infuriating. Colin tells Bright that the only thing he can't remember is the night of the accident. Bright studies his menu even harder. Colin says, "Look, I know you think it's your fault." Bright finally says, "That's because it is." Aw, Bright. Colin tells him that he remembers the inflatable pool in Bright's front yard, and the time he first slept over, and "you're it, man. You're my best friend. Whatever...happened that night, it's all good between us." Bright gives Colin a meaningful look, and then says, "So, uh, which one costs the extra twenty-seven cents?" Colin smiles. I think I may have a little tear. That was exactly what Bright needed to hear. I hate you ALL!
