Previously on Felicity, Ben's father comes to New York to make amends; Julie states that she was not a suitable organ donor for her birth father, but she's grateful she had a chance to get to know him; Knoll tells Felicity he wants to be with his friends instead of Gnatalie; Gnatalie coldcocks Knoll.
At the dorm apartment, Felicity is dying Knoll's hair back to its usual dull brown colour. He's explaining the various reasons, like "mental incompetence and incest," that he and Gnatalie could use to get an annulment. He doesn't know how he's going to pay for college since he and Gnatalie spent all of his tuition money during the summer. Felicity continues to rinse his hair, and he asks if it is "supposed to sting like that." She calls him a baby and he makes a dumb remark about her not having "the best track record with hair." She demands to know what he means by that. Elena and Felicity have reviewed the options, and they both agree that Knoll should testify that he is impotent to get the annulment. Molly, the girls' new roommate, arrives just in time to hear Knoll practicing saying that he's impotent. When he spies Molly, he insists that he really isn't impotent, but Felicity and Elena respond that he actually is. The whole exchange conjures up some mental images that I'm going to need large doses of LSD and electro-convulsive therapy to erase.
According to the commercial, if you eat a Milky Way at a movie, you'll be in such bliss that you won't be bothered by the other noisy patrons. I prefer to tell people to shut the hell up. Trailer for The Contender with Joan Allen. Oh, a political commercial for Bob Fremgen. D'oh! It's just another wacky Energizer ad. That crazy bunny! But don't forget to vote, anyway! Kotex works the 'period as word for full stop at the end of sentences and the synonym for menses angle' in their wings pads commercial. Omigod, I never realized the dual meanings for that word before. Tee hee. Not. Is anyone else as sick as I am of that VW Golf ad with Styx's "Mr. Roboto" as the sound track? I didn't even like that song in its first incarnation. Just which segment of the market are they targeting with this ad? Geeky Styx fans who still live in their parents' basements? Do they have large car-buying budgets?
Docuventary clip: Julie sets up the video camera in her room to do a confessional monologue, made popular by various and sundry Bunim-Murray productions. Vote her off the island, and don't let her be in the boy band, I say! She sits down and starts to say that she had a terrible summer, then she gets up and rewinds the tape and starts over. This time, she says that she had a terrific summer, and she blabs more about her birth father and her failed attempt to donate a kidney to him. She says that her birth parents treated her like she was part of the family, and she concludes that it was the best summer ever, then turns off the camera. Hmm, your birth father died just after you got to know him. That certainly does qualify as one of the top ten summer experiences.
