They laugh about how Rufus is playing hooky, and Lily says she won't tell if he takes her with him, and they jaunt down Memory Ln. about how they just coincidentally happen to have the same amount of history, and romantic funny stories full of yearning for Ponyboy-type golden memories w/r/t to this particular movie and actor, as they do with everything on this entire earth. Color me shocked. Fifty years ago when they were young, she realized not even love could make that movie bearable -- as everybody with a boyfriend has done at some point in their lives -- and walked out, taking his soda with her. Boring story short, they go see Repo Man again so that Lily can do what she does best, which is pretend that the men in her life are interesting.
The Plastics surround Amanda like a living flood of Agnès B. "Hi, my name's Blair. You're new." Amanda starts to introduce herself, but of course B cuts her off immediately. "-- Oh, that's not important. We'd like to invite you to lunch." Amanda starts to explain that that's "sweet," but she has plans with Lonelyboy, and Iz cuts her off. "-- We know. Dan Humphrey. Bad idea." Penelope and Blair explains that doing such would be hazardous to her health: "Social, emotional... Even physical," Blair says, dropping her hockey stick on Amanda's stupid foot. "Besides, boyfriends are so much less reliable than girlfriends." Iz nods; that blonde girl with the brother from this morning's briefing is now a Plastic, of course. "We look out for each other. What do you say?" S walks up as the full-court press starts looking like werewolves, and pulls B out for a sidebar.
"Blair. What's going on?" Blair explains that Amanda will be joining them for lunch, and against S's protests, drops the concept of how Lonelyboy was planning lunch: "Lunch? As in the meal before dating?" Serena admits that she doesn't want to see Dan go down that path less than a week after their breakup, but only with her sad eyes. B's not wrong, but also: live it out! This girl sucks! Dan was bringing you down! Water finds its own level! Point and laugh and watch them destroy each other! (Did you know Agnès B.'s original name was "Agnès Troublé"? Upset Lamb! That is BANANAS. I would kill for a name that cool, I wonder what she was thinking. The things we do to ourselves.) Anyway, B takes Serena's sadness for silent complicity, which is what it is, and takes off, ordering Amanda sweetly to retrieve her stick from where B "seemed to have dropped it." The other Plastics push past the roadkill of her as she picks up the stick, and then Amanda and Serena do an awkward invisibility tango.
