Joan's walking outside the school when she runs into some scruffy old guy walking about half a dozen large dogs, and gets tangled up in his leashes. You just know this is going to be an avatar. Dog Walker God is played by Amber Tamblyn's father, Russ Tamblyn. Perhaps I should call him "God the Father," but I think that'll be too confusing down the road. (Too bad I can't figure out a palindromic version of "Dog Walker God.") Note that he has a large button on his vest that reads "I Love Everybody." I have a postcard that's very similar to that, only mine says, "I Hate Everybody." Joan tries to untangle herself as she asks, "Do you mind? I'm late." Dog Walker God says, "Not much I can do. It's their nature, Joan." She seems unusually surprised and asks, "Why does Adam have to go to the concert with Iris?" Dog Walker God says Adam doesn't have to; he wants to. Joan: "Only because you made me cancel!" He replies, "I work in mysterious ways, Joan. It's, uh...it's my thing." Hee. Joan: "So, maybe you could do something mysterious from [sic] stopping her from going." Joan suggests a twisted ankle or appendicitis: "Or a big zit...on her lip, huh? Think of it as payback for all the work that I've done for you!" Yeah, God's hardly done anything for you. He asks, "Don't you think that there might be some things that are more important than this date?" Joan: "Like?" Dog Walker God: "Like I suggest that you keep working with those kids." Joan: "You suggest. You suggest. Like I'm not going to do what God suggests!" As he gets the dogs under control and starts walking away, Joan asks, "And why am I working with them?" He says, "Sorry -- they gotta go!" Joan shouts after him, "I hope they pee on you!"
