Joan, Luke, and Grace are walking through the halls. Joan's reading her poetry book: "I don't get it. These poems are supposed to be romantic but they're all about death." Luke: "Death is romantic." Grace: "Especially when there's blood." Luke: "Or a plague." They smirk at each other. Aw. Maybe Luke'll turn into a little goth. I wonder how Grace would like that. Joan throws up her hands: "Why haven't we double-dated?" As they round the corner, they see Adam down the hall at his locker, chatting with some blonde chick in one of Jennifer Beals's navy blue sweatshirts, except someone's plastered a big yellow happy face on it. Frink: "Unless you're being ironic, take that thing off." It's Haylie Duff, by the way, sister of last episode's Hilary Duff. She was also in Napoleon Dynamite, in case you feel like you've seen her somewhere before but you're not sure where. I mean, somewhere other than The Fug Blog, Duff Sisters Department. It also looks to me like her jeans are tucked into her striped socks -- am I seeing things? What is going on there? The sweatshirt also appears to be belted around the hips and bloused out. Or something. Dear God. She's also wearing big, trashy hoop earrings that have all kinds of dangly bits on them. I guess they let Haylie Duff dress herself. Grace, Luke, and Joan all stop short and stare, as Happy Face Chick blathers away at Adam. Grace and Joan turn their backs conspiratorially and Grace says, "Dude?" Joan: "I'm on it." Joan approaches them, and Luke says to Grace, "This looks private." Grace pushes him away slightly: "The girl needs backup. Go." I thought she wasn't Joan's posse?
