Pan across to Meghan and Clay sitting in the waiting room of the clinic. The song sings, "Put yourself in my place. And you won't know why. When I feel the way that I do. Inside." Meghan and Clay hold hands. They are by themselves. I can't believe there isn't one parent that went with them for the tests. What the hell? The doctor calls Meghan, and she kisses Clay goodbye and walks into the office. "Letting me in. But I'm finding you out," the song continues. There are several montage shots of Clay sitting in the waiting room, looking around, all nervous and shifty-eyed. Meghan walks back out of the blue-lit office (which looks more like Jeff Goldblum's lair in The Fly) and takes her case number from the doctor to call for the results. She turns around. The waiting room is empty. "Where's your friend?" the doctor asks. She says she doesn't know. He pats her on the back and walks back into the blue room. Meghan looks around all alone, as the camera pulls back to show just how all alone she really is. I assume if you're gonna alienate all of your friends in ten months to the point where your family won't go with you on an HIV test, you're pretty much alone for the important moments like that. The camera pulls all the way back to the ceiling as we fade to white.
Gee, poor Ferret. No one gives a shit about her yet.
Meghan gets off the phone and tells Mary that she's tried his house three times and he's not home. Mary says he'll turn up, that he's just scared and needs to sleep on it. She tells Meghan to go get some sleep, too. They exchange "love you"s and Meghan walks up the stairs to bed. Mary watches her.
Mitch opens the door and watches his daughter sleep. It's not so creepy now, because he's got that brain-thing and maybe it's just a tumor like Billy's on Ally McBeal and it would explain all of the misogyny and Lolita-stuff that's been happening for the past few months.
Pointless subplot. Kenny helps Taylor study. She calls some guys "geeks." He says they are his friends. She apologizes. He says it's strange that it's cool to his friends that he's with her, but her friends think she's an idiot. She says it would really freak them out if she kissed him real hard on the mouth in this non-class. He says he's game. She doesn't do it, though. She thanks him for helping her with the test, but says that it's probably not going to do her any good. She says she has a lousy memory and that she sorta thinks the only way she'd get a good grade is if she cheated. She laughs and says she should sit next to Kenny. Kenny's all, "Oh, snap. This girl just wants me to help her cheat. I am a geek."
