On the lot, Courtney tells Tori2 that she's going to Johnny's premiere because she loves animal movies. She has Homeward Bound on DVD. Tori2 is preoccupied with dressing for success. "This time when that magazine asks, 'What were they thinking?' I'm going to have an answer," she vows. Johnny drives up and asks Courtney to be his date for the premiere. She accepts after he gives her a line about wanting to go with a friend. He takes off with loud heavy metal blaring as if he's cruising the high school during sixth period.
Afterwards, Dave asks Johnny why he's wasting his time on Courtney, who will never "give it up." Johnny is sure that Courtney won't be able to resist the "ultimate aphrodisiac" that is going to a premiere with the star of the movie. "Dude, the dog is the star of the movie," says Dave.
On the set, we see that Take 1 of Scene 12 is starting. Quentin/Stone writes on the chalkboard while Helena/Ms. Gander feels him up. Hunter/Becky comes into the classroom and asks what Stone's doing. "It's called Algebra 2, Becky," says Ms. Gander. Becky apologizes, picks up her notebook, and leaves. Stone does a lunge against the desk in his tight jeans, saying that he can't continue his affair with Ms. Gander because he doesn't want to hurt Becky. Ms. Gander assures him that Becky will never find out. She kisses him. The scene is cut, but Helena and Quentin keep kissing. When they finally break, Quentin says, "I really liked that last time," or something like that. Hunter, nauseated, runs off of the classroom set with Tori2 and Courtney in tow. Hunter expresses dismay that her mother is sleeping with Quentin. "Do you know how many uncles I've had?" she cries. "Not to mention aunts!" Courtney's bumpkin sensibilities are offended.
In Quentin's trailer, he and Helena bask in some afterglow on his couch. She's in a dress, but he's only wearing a black robe that he got from Frederick's of Hollywood. "Now I know why they call you Stone," Helena purrs. Kevin walks in with some rewrites or something. "We were just rehearsing," Quentin says. "And if you tell anyone, I'll have your ass fired!" Kevin quickly exits as Helena begins to rub Quentin's foot. She asks if he's ashamed to be seen in public with her. She wonders why he didn't ask her to the premiere. Quentin vehemently states that he isn't going to "watch flashbulbs pop in Johnny's face." Then he asks, "What's with the stopped rubbing?" Helena resumes massaging his foot and points out that their off-screen romance is more newsworthy than Johnny's dog movie.
