Grace is shoving her knapsack into her locker when a grim-faced Glynis walks up to her: "What is your problem, Polk?" Hee. "Polk." Grace is instantly in Sipowicz mode: "What was that?" Glynis, who's about a head taller than Grace, doesn't back down: "How about you just get over yourself, okay? Everybody knows Luke adores you. I'm willing to work with you. And if anyone should have a problem here, it's me. So you sulking and refusing to talk to Luke is just arrogance! Either that, or you actually believe that anything could happen between me and Luke, which couldn't be further from the truth -- no matter how much I might fantasize. So why don't you do everyone a favour and take the giant stick out of your butt?" Whoa. Grace: "You are way more intense than I ever knew." Glynis hands her a piece of paper: "Here are the formulas you can work on if you can successfully remove that stick." As Glynis walks away, Grace asks, "Did he tell you to do this?" Oops, wrong question. Glynis turns around and sneers, "You think I'd involve him in our business? Have some respect for me as a woman!" Whoa, again. Grace turns around, smiling to herself, even though Glynis just tore a strip off her. Forget Rocket Boy. Now she wants Glynis.
Will's in the den sorting through files about the Baker lawsuit at home when Kevin comes in: "You really know how to take a vacation." Will says he wants to put all this stuff away: "I don't want it near us anymore." God, I want that desk. Kevin tells him he saw Andy again. Will threatens to get a "damn restraining order." Kevin explains he went to see Andy at the Y: "His parents kicked him out." Will says that's not Kevin's problem. Kevin: "You know, he pulled the plug on all this. He did the right thing." Will: "What about all he's been doing this past year? Stay away from him, Kevin. You can't trust someone like him, ever!" Kevin says there's more between them than just the accident and all its fallout. Will: "No, there isn't. Not anymore. I've been around people like this my whole career. All you have is family. Family is all you can rely on." Kevin: "Doesn't that make the world pretty small?" Will agrees: "Yeah. It does." He sighs. Kevin looks sad and thoughtful.
Joan walks out of the school, carrying what I presume is her new costume. She doesn't look too happy. She tries to go out a locked door. Female Custodian God comes around the corner and sees her struggling with it: "Don't be frustrated, Joan." Joan: "Why not? Things are a little bit out of control, don't you think?" Female Custodian God acknowledges it must seem that way to Joan, but from her viewpoint, everything's perfect. Joan: "Have you seen Johnny Broadway? He's insane. Every day it's something new. It's chaos!" Female Custodian God smiles and nods. "You wanted me to join the chorus, so I did. But now I have a solo. I don't even want a solo! This is not what I signed up for!" Female Custodian God knows: "Just when you get comfortable bingo! A new surprise." Joan tells her she sounds like Johnny Broadway: "Look, I was just trying to do the right thing. I was. But everything just seems so random." Female Custodian God: "And you wanna know what it all means." Hasn't Joan learned yet that she's not going to get a satisfying answer directly from God? Joan: "Yes. Thank you. I do." Female Custodian God tells her to learn the song. Joan: "That's it?" Female Custodian God: "Of course not. I'm a kind and benevolent God, remember?" She offers to open the door for Joan, and tells her to stand back. She goes through an exaggerated routine of rubbing her hands and shaking herself around and then opening the door. Joan: "So now you do magic?" Female Custodian God jangles some keys at her: "Nah. Just having a little fun. Best way to open doors." Not sure what all that was about.
