Felicity works on her painting in a studio. The Notorious BBG (that's Big, Beefy Guy) walks in and sarcastically says, "Hey! Thanks a lot." Felicity doesn't know what he's talking about, so he explains that he got an F on his midterm because she didn't ask for an extension for him. Felicity apologizes and says that she has a lot going on right now. Notorious BBG says that he doesn't care about Felicity's problems, and that he's in danger of losing his athletic scholarship. Um, if it's so important to him, why didn't he talk to Cavallo himself? Felicity promises to take care of it, and assures Notorious BBG that she was listening this time around. Appeased, he leaves. Felicity looks exhausted as she returns to her painting.
Trevor shows up in lab, where Elena sarcastically assures him that she has nothing better to do than wait around for him. But her sarcasm doesn't have that usual Elena bite, so you get the feeling that she's not all that upset. Trevor pulls a paper from his bag. Elena thinks it's lab work, but Trevor reveals that it's a paper about "the evolutionary theory of gender relations." Trevor reads that males need to fertilize as many females as possible in order to spread their seed. Trevor extrapolates from this to claim, "Guys have to fool around," because they are "wired that way." Elena has a great comeback here: "No, you don't." Trevor reads further, that a female is more selective, and that she shops around for a male who will protect her. Elena says, "Yeah, that's why women pick such protective and caring guys." Trevor brings up the fact that the female brain produces oxytocin, which makes women want to snuggle after lovemaking. Doesn't eating chocolate also produce oxytocin? After I eat a Hershey bar, I don't walk around hugging my cats. Elena says that she hates snuggling, and that she's not buying what the article says. She could also just say, "Nature versus nurture," I would think -- that just because a person has a genetic predisposition to act a certain way, there is also a certain amount of social conditioning that will impact their actions as well. I don't know why I'm getting so into this argument, since it is clearly designed to set up a bantering relationship with these two. Elena gets up and walks out, telling Trevor that since he knows so much about science, he won't need her help with the lab. Trevor realizes that he just signed his own death warrant.
