Helena enters Hunter's trailer to proffer an olive branch. Hunter tells her mom not to lie about her in interviews anymore, because she didn't teach Hunter "all she knows about acting." "Woo! Postcard from the edge received!" laughs Helena. Then she says that Hunter has earned a nickname among the cast and crew: "It's not 'Bunter' and it's not 'Dunter'..." Hmm. I guess it must be Punter, then. Hunter retorts that her mom's nickname is "that old drunk lady who only got the part because her daughter's the star." Helena admits that she's made mistakes, but that AA has helped her and is what keeps her from smacking Hunter right now. "Aw...I'll be sure to tell Daddy you said that," coos Hunter. "...if only we knew who he was..." Helena pretends to concede the round, but then, right before leaving the trailer, she informs Hunter that she was doing the "nostril-flaring thing" again during rehearsal. Hunter worriedly stares at her nose in the mirror.
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.
