Ben and Chris see that they're rooming together, and when Ben walks in, he sees that there's a Hall Pass propped up on his pillow. "I didn't get a hall pass. I want a hall pass!" says Chris. The Hall Pass is for Ben and a classmate of his choice to go snorkeling in a nearby cove, followed by a candlelit dinner.
Nicole gets a hall pass, too. She reads it: "To dine by the sea, followed by a romantic moonlit stroll along the beach." And then drink piña coladas and get caught in the rain! Yeah, like that shit's not going to give her ideas. "Oh! Gosh!" she says.
Elsewhere in the house, Tim is playing his harmonica.
JS: Oh my GOD. So did he bring his BOWL along, too?!
Wendola: I'm so glad you remember this stuff.
JS: For Christ's sake, GO BACK TO SCOVILLE PARK and play that thing there.
Summer walks into Tim's room, having heard that sweet old Slacker Siren Call. In an interview, Summer confesses that "Tim was the first guy I was just...ga-ga over. Tim Gittings broke my heart, and I don't think I ever forgave him for that." Summer and Tim lie around, and she asks him why he never asked her to prom. Tim says he didn't think she wanted to go. "I totally wanted to go! I got all pissed off the day you told me you weren't going to go!" she says. In an interview, Tim says that he hopes he and Summer can spend the next two weeks talking about their past. Back in their room, Summer's all, "So you weren't trying to break my heart?" and Tim's all, "No way." "That's an interesting way to remember things," says Summer. Whatever. Everyone I know was always wanting to slack off on prom because it cost eighty-five bucks.
Later, everyone is hanging out in the kitchen. Chris has written up a Hall Pass of his own, and Summer reads it out loud: "You will engage in risqué sexually-related activity!" Heh. Okay, I don't know if this is true, but according to one local source, Chris supposedly directs porn now in addition to being a tennis instructor, so maybe it makes sense that he so quickly understands the inherent porno quality of a situation like this. Meanwhile, Nicole and Ben figure out that they have to use their Hall Passes that night.
