We cut to Adam, sitting at a table at the dance, writing something. I should probably mock him for his antisocial tendencies, but I'm the sort of person who'd rather write at a dance than dance, so you won't be hearing from me. Adam's wearing a black suit and a grey shirt with a grey and black vertically striped tie, and he looks very cute. Hey, it's been a few pages since I mentioned he's cute. Helen walks over -- looking extremely gorgeous, I might add, in a pretty red and white printed sleeveless top and black skirt -- and says hello to him. She's got a goofy "Chaperone" snowflake thing pinned on her, but she wears it well, and her hair looks especially nice. When Adam sees her, his eyes light up a bit, and he stands up. I like that he seems to have that kind of reflexive courtesy. There's just a fleeting Mrs. Robinson vibe there for a second or two, but it mostly passes. I'm sure the show would not go that route, and I think Adam is beginning to view Helen as a bit of a surrogate mom. She certainly seems to like him a lot better than she did initially. Helen says, "Looks like you came stag, huh?" Adam nods and says, "Yeah." And then: "What?" Helen explains what "stag" means, but adds she doesn't know why it's called that. There's probably a moose/elk joke in there, but trust me, it's really early in the morning and you're going to have to fend for yourselves on that front. Let me know what you come up with. Adam asks if she's seen Joan yet; Helen says she hasn't. They glance around the dance floor, where Friedman is flinging Glenys around, and she detaches and falls into Luke's arms. She looks quite happy about it; Grace, not so much. Friedman comes gyrating over and grabs her back. He resumes his bizarre square dancing moves with Glenys as Luke and Grace watch, somewhat appalled. Luke: "Do you sometimes wonder if high school will ever come to an end?" Grace just nods.
