We open at the Browns'. Delia is telling Treat over dinner that she has to, just HAS TO, go to sleepaway camp, because there are trees and hiking, and EVERYBODY is going, and if she misses it? She'll be a social pariah! Treat tells her they have trees and hiking in Everwood, and asks her if she even knows what a "pariah" is. Delia: "I don't even know what 'social' is, just please let me go, I'm begging." Ephram comes in and asks if they've finished eating already. Treat says there's still some left, and he could heat it up. Ephram says he'll get something later. Delia tries to get Ephram to back her up about going to sleepaway camp. Ephram says he never went. Delia looks at Treat. "And look what happened to him!" Treat says that's the first decent argument she's made all night. Heh. Treat directs Ephram to some mail that came for him. It's his tickets to London. A...real ticket? On...paper? How very last century. I find it hard to believe that Ephram wouldn't have ordered an e-ticket, but then we wouldn't have had this little exchange. Ephram says he thought he'd start off in a country where he at least spoke the language. Delia can't believe Ephram is going all the way to London, which is way farther than Camp Wookama. That may be an incorrect spelling; my closed-captioning is on the blink, by which I mean, I ain't got none on this here set. Treat cracks that London is also not half as much fun to say. Delia bets he'll be gone a lot longer than six weeks, too. Ephram says he's not sure how long he'll be there. Delia's all, "What do you mean you don't know? Look at your ticket, duh." Aw. Ephram explains that it's an open-ended ticket, so he can just come back whenever he wants -- and he's leaving Friday. Delia gets kind of sad. Treat's like, "This Friday? What about graduation?" Ephram asks what about it. Delia pouts her way out of the room. Treat tells him he might want to talk to his sister. Ephram, uncharacteristically, is all, "Oh, she'll be fine. Walk it off, Delia!" Man. Treat gives Ephram a look, and says he's surprised. Ephram: "Do I look like somebody who wants to be walking around in a giant silk robe in public?" Hee. Treat says he just figured Ephram would want to be here, with everything going on at the Abbotts'. Ephram has no idea what this means. Treat has to tell Ephram that Rose has cancer. Ephram finally looks concerned about someone besides himself. Credits.
When we come back, a car with vanity plates reading "Papa Joy" is parked behind the diner. Nina sees this as she pulls up, and sighs, "Oh, great." She walks into the diner, which is full of men moving things out and unhooking pipes and whatnot. Papa Joy, who turns out to be Long Duk Dong, breaks the news to Nina: the diner is closing. Nina is way more upset about this than our tiny Chinese friend, who tells her he just bought a way cool condo in Vegas, and she should get in while the getting's good. He gives her a severance package of two weeks' pay, plus tips from the night before. Gee. "Thanks." Nina thanks him, and he says, "Don't tell the others, okay? All I got them was a gift certificate from Pier 1." Ha! Nina nods, and stands behind the counter defeatedly.
