"Also starring Bradley Cooper." Woohoo! More pretty for my screen. His name is pretty, too. I think I'll just call him Bradley Cooper. Grace is walking across the quad (or the triangle, or the octagon, or whatever) with the aforementioned pretty. He starts to say something to Grace, but she (naturally) interrupts him to hand him some documents. He thanks her for the opportunity to be abused as her T.A. (again, I'm paraphrasing), and she immediately starts the abuse by criticizing his choice of words. He tells her that he doesn't expect any special treatment, and she thinks that he's implying that he's heard that she's a pushover when it comes to T.A.s (you know, letting them get away with plagiarism and all). It's clear that he actually meant something else when he brought up special treatment, but he clams up when she asks him about it. She tells him to bone up on his feminist reading before the next class, and when he tells her he's already read the book she suggests, she starts quizzing him right there: "What are the chief qualitative differences between the first and second wave of feminism?" Um, the first wave wore bloomers and the second wave wore mini-skirts? (That's a joke, by the way. Save your righteous emails for somebody else. ["Plus I bet Elizabeth Cady Stanton went commando from time to time." -- Wing Chun]) Bradley Cooper aces the quiz, and Grace rudely tells him to shut up.
Jack, Coltney, and Marcus walk out of a classroom as Jack asks if "anybody's up for a last ditch Chem cram tonight? I've got the caffeine pills and the jerky." Heh. "Cram." "Jerky." Heh heh. Coltney's out because she has to babysit, and Marcus has to work at the diner. Jack tells him to blow it off, pointing out that Marcus isn't even getting paid, but Marcus would rather fulfill his family obligations than sit around eating chaw sticks with Jack. Jack starts talking about the track meet coming up that weekend, and Marcus is rather noncommittal before walking away. Coltney's been nearby for this conversation, and after Marcus leaves, she comes and sticks her horsey nose in his business, telling Jack that "he seems kind of out of it." Jack blames it on nerves about the track meet, pointing out that it's the biggest meet of the season and that if the team loses, they won't make it to regionals. Just then, Dee Vine walks up and possessively grabs hold of Jack, asking the two of them if they want to walk her class. "Yeah," says Coltney, "wouldn't want to get lost." And then what does Coltney do? Of course, she stomps away.
