Lindsay's still at the picnic table when Daniel comes along. Lindsay starts right in by claiming that she wasn't trying to break up the band; she only wanted to help Nick stay out of the Army. Daniel claims that Nick doesn't need her help and that he'll never make it as a drummer, so Lindsay should let him "have some fun before he has to ship off." Lindsay gives an impassioned speech in Nick's defense, but Daniel walks all over it. I have to admit that he's right, but in this scene I'm too distracted by how much he's already looking like a character from Barfly, as Maggie pointed out last week.
In gym class, Biff is taking attendance. Harris answers him in German. Sam doesn't answer at all. That would be because he's crouched on top of a toilet in the boys' room, trying to remain invisible. Two freaks are by the urinals discussing The Shining. We learn that "Red Rum" is "Murder" spelled backwards. Dude! I'll bet all the non-stoned people didn't pick up on that! Mr. Kowchevski the math teacher comes in and tells them to head off to class. He props himself against the wall with both hands and takes a leak. Sam stares through the slightly open door of the stall, fascinated by Mr. Kowchevski's, um, hands-free technique. As he tries to get a better look, his foot slips, and his sneakers start making squeaky sounds on the toilet seat. Mr. Kowchevski shakes himself off and leans over the stall door, saying, "It would go a little easier if you'd sit down and drop your pants."
Nick is investigating a possible career in lawn care by practising on his parents' lawn when Lindsay drops by. He's bummed about the "whole band-breaking-up thing." Lindsay tells him he shouldn't be, since he was "the only professional." She gives him a flyer she picked up at the record store. A band called Dimension is looking for a drummer, and Nick gets all excited about auditioning for them, claiming they're "like the top working band in Detroit." Hope springs eternal, and it's really cute that Lindsay actually believes Nick would get paid by anyone for his drumming. Nick jumps the fence and gives Lindsay a big hug to thank her.
