Knoll is standing up in front of a class, pacing and talking to a sheet of paper. Oh, apparently, he's supposed to be the teaching assistant for this Philosophy class, even though he's a Graphic Design major. I'm kind of glad though, because I don't know that I could stand watching Knoll pontificate on the glories of his iMac. As the camera pans across a bunch of students, we see that Ruby is in the class. Knoll makes a lame joke and excuses the class. Ruby runs up and tells him that he did a great job. Knoll fishes for compliments. Ruby gives them. Then she points out that he talked a little too fast. Knoll thanks her for the constructive criticism. Ruby goes on to say that Knoll should have given more eye contact. Okay, I know Knoll's fragile little ego can't take the heat here, but she's totally right. He didn't look up from the paper once. Instead of thanking her this time, Knoll kind of nods and starts to look pissed. Ruby doesn't notice and volunteers that Knoll should ask questions to make the lecture more interactive. Knoll blows up at her and says that it was the first class and that he can't ask questions when he doesn't even have a topic. Ruby says she was trying to be helpful and Knoll apologizes. He claims he wants to be "challenging, yet inspiring," but from what I've seen, he'll be lucky to hit "yawn-inducing, yet incomprehensible." Ruby reassures him that he will get there, and they leave.
Julie and Felicity are putting together the telescope in Felicity's room, while Elena is sewing something. Felicity says that her dad gave her the telescope and insisted that she always wanted one. Julie shares that her grandmother is always giving her really weird presents like "porcelain dolls" when she was fifteen. Boy, these girls are really grateful for all they have, aren't they? Felicity says that her dad is only going to be there for a few weeks, and she can handle it. Elena notes that it is the third time she has said so in five minutes. Elena is wearing the most god-awful purple and red peasant blouse. They must have borrowed it from the wardrobe department of Buffy. Felicity admits that having her dad so close is a disaster and Julie says it would freak her out to have her own dad around all the time. Felicity wants to be able to come and go as she pleases, and do whatever she wants. Elena says, "Yeah, do some of that wild partying you did last year." I love Elena. I forgive her for wearing such an ugly shirt. Felicity says she feels like her dad is always looking over her shoulder. (See, he's the Three Men and a Baby Boy. I bet if they looked out the window right now, he would be hovering there.)
