Fake Chilton. Rory arrives at Headmaster Charleston's office, saying she got a note telling her to go there. The assistant tells her to wait with Paris. Yes: Paris, too, has been called to the Headmaster's office. After some brief bickering, Rory and Paris realize that neither of them made this happen, and they've been just called to the Headmaster's office. I'd say it's all about two weeks too late. And again: Francie? The fencing teacher? Everybody needs some scolding. The assistant has some strange trinkets on her desk. They look like red Weeble-Wobbles. Headmaster Charleston opens his door. There's a strange moment where he thinks they have another line, and they're waiting for his line and then he invites them in. Then we watch them stand up and walk into his office. zzzzzzzzzz.
Headmaster Charleston tells the girls to have a seat. He shuts the door, saying that he never expected to have the President and Vice-President of Student Council in his office. He says there's been quite a stir over the past couple of days (?!?) about their behavior. He brings up the fights at the meetings, their face-offs in the cafeteria, and a screaming match at the school newspaper's office. He, for some reason, doesn't mention when Paris went apeshit on Rory with a fencing foil. He also doesn't mention that the faculty and staff have done nothing to ease this situation nor prevent it from getting out of hand. He also hasn't mentioned Francie, or how everybody should be suspended by now. The girls bicker some more, until they're all "You're the stupid!" "No, you're the stupid!" Rory quits, and says she never wanted this stupid job in the first place, but Paris made her take the position so she'd get elected. Paris says that's not true. Charleston finally makes them stop, and says that their behavior is disgraceful. And boring. He asks what's driving this fight. He asks if they're arguing over the same boy. Paris, in a completely uncharacteristically insubordinate move, mutters, "Sure. We're girls, so we could only be arguing about a boy, right? Sexist, white-haired..." Headmaster Charleston interrupts her here before she gets expelled. But they ARE arguing over a boy, so it's even more insulting to have Paris say that line. Charleston asks if this is a popularity thing, or a power struggle. The girls aren't interested in speaking, so Charleston starts lecturing. He tells Rory that she's not allowed to quit the Student Council, since the school elected her to the position. He basically calls her a whiny quitter, and advises her not to take things she can't hack. Now tell her what to do about Jess and Dean! Do it, Charleston! Tell her she's a wimpy fake innocent who thinks she's Snow White in a Princess outfit. Tell her we can see right through it all and she's just her mom with a wide-eyed pout. He tells Paris that she worked very hard to get to where she is, and that there's no reason to throw it all away on petty antics and childish vendettas. He doesn't see how they'll be able to handle college, and that they're acting like sniveling, spiteful, vindictive individuals. Where's Francie? Charleston wonders if he should amend his recommendation letters to Harvard about the two of them, and says he's had to do it before. He kicks them out. We watch them leave.
