Noel talks to Mr. Webb, his new employer. Noel promises that even though he still has the counseling job, it won't interfere with his new job at Mr. Webb's design firm. It shouldn't; it certainly didn't take any precedence in his life before he had two jobs. Why change his priorities now? Mr. Webb gives Noel some tasks to do, and Noel seems a bit overwhelmed, but muddles through somehow, as he always does. One task is to talk to "Zoe in Print Media," and Noel promises that he's all over it. As Noel says that, they walk by the aforementioned Zoe, who asks, "Who's all over me?" So you know right away that Noel is going to have an inappropriate relationship with her. Also, from certain angles, she looks startlingly like Ruby. Zoe tells Noel to come find her when he's ready, and then says goodbye to Mr. Webb, who turns out to be her father. Noel sits down in front of a computer, grateful to interact with a machine instead of a human being, since his social skills have gone down the drain this season, what with the blurting out of secrets and the multiple failed job interviews.
Some Big, Beefy Guy runs up to Felicity in the hallway and asks to talk to her. He's in Cavallo's class, and he didn't get his midterm in on time, so he was hoping for an extension. He takes all this time to explain to Felicity that he's on the hockey team, and he had a game, and blah blah blah. It doesn't matter, because Felicity is totally not listening, since she just spotted Ben walking down the hall towards her, accompanied by Trevor. Ben sees her, and just keeps walking. Ooh, burn. By the time that happens, Big Beefy Guy has just finished asking Felicity to help him get an extension, and Felicity distractedly agrees. Big Beefy Guy is all happy.
In Chemistry lab, Ben's science is tight. He's all rocking the experiment, much to Elena's surprise. So is Elena just hanging out with them during their labs all the time now? I'm surprised the professor would allow that. Elena is surprised that Ben can concentrate, and Ben points out that it's due the next day. Trevor shows up and says something dumb about sulfuric acid. Ben says that he needs to go, and takes off. Once he's gone, Trevor tells Elena that cheating isn't something a guy can get over. Elena wonders if he thinks it's different for girls. Turns out Trevor does think that. He has a theory that when a guy cheats, it's just sex and doesn't mean anything. Elena says that it's the same for girls, but Trevor insists that for girls, emotions are involved, so it means more. Elena says that she's cheated and it means nothing. Except that in your case, it was partly because your fiancé wouldn't give up the goods. So I guess it was just sex. Trevor pretends that he agrees with Elena so that they can go over the lab.
