Once inside, we see that there are very few interior walls, but a proliferation of exposed wall studs and wiring. Kim, Lindsay, and Kim's stepfather are seated at the kitchen table when Mrs. Grace Kelly sets a bucket of chicken on it. Grace quizzes Lindsay about her good grades. Lindsay starts to deny being smart until Kim kicks her under the table. When she admits to getting good grades, Grace asks why she doesn't help Kim, who is "hanging on for dear life." Kim claims that she gets good grades. Grace disagrees and says, "I hate to blow your mind, sistuh, but Ds are not good. Ds are bad." Mr. Kelly chuckles, gnawing on a chicken leg. Kim yells about having a pervert history teacher and not wanting to be "tutored" by him. Her mother tells her to "can it" because she might wake up Chip, who is snoring on a couch just beyond a partial wall. Chip is ably played by Mike White -- Buck of Chuck & Buck fame. Besides writing the movie, he also wrote this episode as well as "We've Got Spirit." Kim mumbles, "At least I know how to read." With a mouth full of chicken, Mr. Kelly demands, "What's that?" Kim says it was nothing, while Lindsay looks increasingly uncomfortable. Grace resumes questioning Lindsay. This time it's about the Weirs' non-existent vacation house. Apparently, Grace did some waitressing up theyuh in Benton Hahbuh, and she knows the town well. She wants to know exactly where the Weirs' place is. Why she wouldn't have wanted to know that, oh, before she allowed Kim to go there, is beyond me. ["Maybe Kim's already answered and Grace is testing Lindsay to make sure the stories jibe?" -- Wing Chun] Grace guesses that the Weirs are rich. When Lindsay tries to deny it, she gets another kick under the table from Kim. Lindsay says that she's not supposed to talk about her family's wealth because her father "always says a farmer is never supposed to reveal how many cows he has." Grace chuckles knowingly, but Mr. Kelly asks, "Your old man's a farmer?" Lindsay explains that her father owns A1 Sporting Goods. Mr. Kelly wonders if Dad Weir can give them a discount. Kim rolls her eyes. Grace points out that they don't live the way that the Weirs do. Mr. Kelly gets defensive and says that they "get by," and mumbling that they're "remodelling." Grace pipes up, "Oh, and take your time with that. I love relievin' myself behind a showuh curtain." Lindsay grins sickly.
