Joan's corralled Steve into a photograph. As the camera flashes, we cut back to Adam and Helen. Adam's noticed Joan and Steve together, and he just gives Helen a glum look and starts to walk away. You can tell Helen feels his pain, and she says, "Adam, wait. Girls are just...stupid in high school, okay? If you will just hang on a few more years, I guarantee you, eventually the smart girls will figure out that guys like you are way more interesting than guys like Ramsay." Adam just barely nods.
Friedman says to Luke, "So, Polk looks pretty hot under all that feminazi garb. Who knew, huh? Hey." Wow, like I didn't already want to punch Friedman's lights out. Glenys stands by, admiring Luke and trying to look casual but pretty. Luke, quite annoyed: "Did you just say 'feminazi'?" Friedman: "Be straight with me, Girardi. You guys exchanging fluids?" Yeah, long protein strings. God! Shut it, Friedman. Luke: "Why am I friends with you?" Indeed. Friedman: "Well, it's the only explanation. Why else would you commit science fair suicide?" Luke sighs and says, "What can I say? 'The search for truth is more precious than its possessions.'" That's Einstein, but I think the correct quotation is "...possession," which makes more sense. Macy Gray's "When I See You" starts to play, making me very happy since I love her and I love this song. Grace arrives back with a couple of drinks at this point, just in time to hear Friedman say, "Okay, seriously, invest in Birkenstocks now, because you're doomed to a life of lesbian worship!" He scuttles a little distance away again like the miserable coward he is. Glenys follows. Grace, fed up, sets down the two cups as Luke stands up, and she puts her hands on his neck and kisses him passionately for several seconds. Then she pulls his jacket off, shrugs hers off, and hands them both to him. She kind of tugs on his tie and then heads for the dance floor. Luke follows, dumping their jackets on Friedman, who remarks excitedly to Glenys, "Did he just convert her from Mac to PC?" Shut. It. Friedman. God, what an asshat. Glenys, for her part, is obviously heartbroken and struggles to contain her disappointment. Me, I'm buying Grape Nehis for everyone on the deck of the Luke/Grace 'ship (which I'm riding while my favourite 'ship's in dock).
