Tami peeks in Julie's room and finds Shelly deep in whispered communion with the upset teen. Shelly joins Tami in the kitchen; Julie walks out and thanks her aunt and ignores her mother. Julie leaves, and Shelly tells Tami that Julie is really upset. Tami snaps that she doesn't need a mediator, and then Shelly tries to make Tami see that for once she is in the wrong here. Tami points out that Shelly only knows Julie's side of the story and then drags Shelly's barren uterus into it: "Frankly, you're not a mother, so..." Shelly gets up, pissed at Tami's tired line, and then tries another approach. She asks Tami how she would have felt if their mom had done that to her. This finally gets through to Tami and she answers, "Mortified."
Lyla's youth group prays over breakfast at the Alamo Freeze. Landry sits off to the side listening. Lyla catches his eye and goes over to him. Landry asks Lyla if she's a good Christian or a bad Christian. She says she tries to be good, and Landry says he does, too, but it's hard to tell. Lyla says nobody is perfect, Landry clears his throat and tells Lyla that he has a secret he's keeping that is starting to eat away at him and he doesn't know what to do. Lyla tells him that she thinks telling the truth is a way of surrendering to God. Landry doesn't know what would happen if he did and Lyla tells him that's why they call it faith. Landry asks, "Just tell the truth, huh?" and she confirms as much, holding his hand.
Matt and Smash walk toward Lauren outside school, and Smash tells his wingman to stay strong. Matt asks Lauren if they can talk for a minute and then --right there in the middle of the crowds of kids milling about -- says that maybe they should have an open relationship. She reacts as predicted, tells him not to touch her and to stay away from her. Smash approaches, smiling, and Matt wonders what happened to smelling like roses. Smash confirms that that part doesn't always work and the two walk off together like the obtuse males that they are.
