Simone and Peter meet up in the lobby of her father's building. Peter's leaving; he's been training his replacement and saying goodbye to Simone's dad. He's quitting the nursing biz. Simone seems crushed that Peter's leaving her father's side. She doesn't want him to go. "This is not where I'm supposed to be," says Peter. "It's not what I'm supposed to do. I can't really explain it." She tells him to try, and Peter just says he's meant for something bigger. Yes, because caring for the dying is so meaningless. I really really REALLY wish they'd picked a different profession for Peter to keep disparaging. They share a moment where they smile at each other and he touches her arm. He walks away and Simone says that she'll miss him. This makes him stop and turn and say something pithy about how they're in New York and everyone runs into each other sooner or later. That was really deep. Now go jump off a building, Peter.
Bonfire of the Vanities and Underage Drinking and/or Sex. Jackie the Snotty Cheertator is entertaining the drunken masses with her made-up tale of fire heroism. Claire stands a few feet away, watching the bear mascot go up in flames on the bonfire. The jockstrap quarterback joins her and they make mindless flirty chit-chat for a second or two. Jockstrap says he'd like the mascot better if it was filled with firecrackers, and Claire agrees. At one point, he pulls her back from the flames, saying that she'd better be careful or she'll wind up like the mascot. And when he does this, I have to tell you, I got an immediate vibe of "teen rapist" off of him. But that could just be because he's wearing a douche-o-riffic leather choke collar around his neck.
