Anyway, one girl asks, "You want me to smash Naughty Nancy?" Helen: "Well, think of it as using your past to create something new." Spunky Booster thinks that's "cool." You know, I'm starting not to care if Adam ever gets with Joan as long as he dumps Iris. Go away, little girl. Helen tells them to put on their safety goggles and start smashing. Denise, the owner of Naughty Nancy, is being totally feeble about it, and holding the hammer all wrong, and Helen tells her to put some muscle into it. Frink: "Learn to use a hammer! God." Joan comes in and shouts over the hammering noise, "Hey! What's going on?" Helen says, "We're memorializing our childhood relics. What do you need?" Joan says she came by to see if Helen needs any help, what with Luke sick and all. Helen says she knows about Luke, because Will called, and he also told her Joan ran off and left him with everything this morning. Joan says she's here now. Helen explains she's already arranged to miss her fifth period class so she can check on Luke. Joan apathetically offers to do it. Helen seems surprised: "You'd do that?" Joan: "Yeah. What's the big deal? Drive home, give Luke a pizza pocket " Helen: "No, he needs soup and flu medicine, lemon flavour, and check his temperature." Joan: "Fine, I'm all over it." Helen thinks of something else, but then decides it's too much, and says, "Forget it." Joan: "What?" Helen left some ground beef out to thaw so she could make meatloaf, but forgot she had a meeting tonight, so now it's going to spoil. But she does another guilt-tripping "forget it" well enough that Joan says in a weak, pouty way, "I can make the meatloaf." Helen: "Your father would be so thrilled." Joan barks, "But I have to be done by seven!" Helen says she can leave as soon as her father gets home. Joan shlumps off as Helen chirps, "Thank you!"
