I guess Daniel is bringing Ken and Nick to the Armpit -- you know, the revoltingly named punk club. Ken, on the prospect of Nick's getting lucky tonight: "All these punk girls hate themselves. It's got to improve your chances." Nick deadpans, "That's really, really funny," waits a beat, and then whacks Ken in the stomach. Just then, Daniel drives up in his ugly, ugly car. His "punker" hair leaves something to be desired. It pretty much looks like he was playing with his hair in the shower and forgot to wash the shampoo out. Ken laughs at him, but Nick tries to a little kinder at first. He gives in to temptation, though, and asks Daniel, "Can I use you to clean out my ear later?" Ken adds, "Edgar Winter called. He says he needs his hair back for a gig tonight." I know that joke was overdone years ago, but it still cracks me up every time. Daniel's not laughing, but that's probably because he's concentrating all his energy in trying to look cool.
Dad Weir is helping Mom with her coat in preparation for the big Schweiber blowout. She yells to Lindsay that they will all be back early. Lindsay comes out in a party dress and says that she changed her mind about attending the party. Mom tells her she looks great. It's true. Lindsay pretends that she changed her mind because she's a part of the Weir family and because Dr. Schweiber is her dentist, too, but I suspect it has a lot more to do with Barry Schweiber than it does with his father.
Mr. Schweiber is greeting his guests at the door, asking them glib and tactless questions about their dentistry and then not waiting for the answers. He spends a little too long eyeing Mrs. Weir and calls Lindsay a "looker." When he gets to Dad Weir, he puts on his macho bonding voice to ask, "Big Harry, need a drink?" Dad Weir replies with a terse "Yes, I do," and not even a glimmer of friendliness. Big Harry hands over his car keys to Mrs. Weir, saying that there's no way he can listen to Schweiber's awful jokes "without plenty of anesthesia." Barry and Lindsay are extremely pleased to see each other. Their chemistry is totally believable and charming.
