Serena calls Aaron-Bobby, who apparently has an answering machine in his time machine and has left a long rambling message: "Hey, it's Aaron, leave a message. Oh, if this is Serena, that girl at the hotel today? Not what you think. I mean, not my girlfriend, if that's what you thought, because I don't have a girlfriend, and I'm rambling. So, uh, if this isn't Serena, leave a message. Thank you." Ugh, Aaron Rose makes me so tired. Serena's like, "That was the worst message I have ever heard... Or the best!" He has her in his filthy tractor beam! "Um, I was just calling to thank you for the ring, but somehow I am finding myself wanting to give you another chance..." Some girl picks up the phone randomly and goes, "Aaron's in the bathroom. Do you wanna wait, or...?" What the... fuck goes on with this guy?
Serena has a meltdown and hangs up, and then stares ruefully out the window of her towncar and does her weird "You Know How I Get In The Summah" voice: "Cecil, ya got me again." This is totally my favorite storyline of this episode, the guerilla warfare he's doing on her brain that is causing her to talk to imaginary insects. I would like to pretend that she does this on a constant basis and we're only just now hearing about it. "Harold, you chucklehead, stop crapping on my lifestyle and breaking up with me. Nikolai, you darling little rapist, my second-favorite brother, I'll see you at lunch! You hot mess, Audrey, ya got me again with those cute little headbands! 23 skidoo!"
Jenny catches the blur of Nate, who explains that Dan is a Hipster Scorned and looking to have a wicked slapfight, and that Rufus is there, and Jenny wigs but then Agnes shows up and says it's time for guerilla fashion, and the Humphrey presence is good because, get this, the fashion show is going to be so very awesome that they will totally change personalities and become supportive and nonjudgmental. Plus, Rufus is going to kill her either way, so she might as well blow her wad. She pulls the Don't You Care About Me card on Nate again, and because his short-term memory is nil, he falls for it again.
