Knoll is lecturing again, still looking at the paper the whole time. He really does a good impression of a distracted professor. He asks the clearly bored group of students what the difference is between Hobbes and Locke. Ruby keeps pointing at her eyes to try to get Knoll to make eye contact. Knoll further alienates the students by saying, condescendingly, "This is pretty basic stuff, guys." Gee, even if I had planned to hazard a guess earlier, I definitely wouldn't now! Knoll sees Ruby's frantic gestures and thinks she wants to answer the question, so he calls on her. She says she can't remember. Knoll starts to give the answer, in a really snotty tone, and then tells them to turn to Chapter Thirteen. I hate him. ["Plus, I'm sorry, but the difference between Locke and Hobbes can't really be boiled down to a single Teacher's Edition textbook answer, so Noel (no surprise) just needs to get over himself." -- Wing Chun]
Julie is looking into the now assembled telescope, and Felicity suggests going out to check out used CDs. Julie says that the view in the telescope looks like a giant eyeball, and Elena walks by and points out that she has the lens in backwards. Felicity opens the door to leave and says, "Don't worry about the telescope. I'm never going to use the thing anyway." As you probably guessed, the Three Men and a Baby Boy is standing right there and Felicity is so busted. He offers to take the three ladies out for lunch, and they accept. As they are leaving, he tells Felicity she can return the telescope, but she says she didn't mean what she said.
Julie, Elena, Felicity and Dad Porter are eating lunch. There are lots of the aforementioned awkward silences. Dad asks Elena about her classes, but that is quickly over. Felicity tells her dad to ask Julie about her demo, like that's not weird. Why wouldn't she just say, "Julie, I was telling my dad about your demo. What's the latest?" I swear, these people have no social skills. So, Dad asks Julie about her demo, and Julie answers, and then they all sit there. Dad asks Julie if she's a music major, and she says no, and he says he thought they had to declare their majors by the end of the semester. Instead of pointing out that the semester just started, and that it's none of Mr. Porter's beeswax, Elena shows some grace by saying that most students change their majors multiple times before graduating so it doesn't really matter. Then there are more awkward silences.
