Moments later, it's green screen mania as Baze and Cate drive around looking for Lux. They laugh that the attic was probably the better option compared to this shit show. Cate gets serious, saying screw their parents for raising them so poorly that they ended up all damaged and bad parent-y. She realizes she should have talked to Baze before transferring Lux. She had good intentions, but trying to make things better for Lux has only seemed to make them worse. Baze tells Cate to try to see things from her perspective. As much as they didn't like her school or friends, that was her life, her family. They need to stop trying to force their lives on her and start figuring out where they can fit in hers.
Back at Cate's, Lux and Bug are in the attic packing her things. She thinks it might actually be worse that her real parents have treated her like she was expendable. At least with foster parents, that's what she'd come to expect. Bug gives her some justification booshit about how they're the lucky ones and she's doing the right thing, mainly so he can get his hands on her savings and her cooter once they're far, far away. She tells him he should go before Cate gets home but to pick her up in the morning where they can sneak off toward the horizon.
The next morning, Lux meets up with the pastel girl from school on the farce that she's found the perfect birthday gift for Jones. She pulls out Baze's bong lamp and makes up some story about how it was Jerry Garcia's, so it's a collector's item worth $1,000. She says she'll cut the girl a deal and sells it to her for $200. Au revoir, fair bong lamp. We hardly knew ye!
A bit later, Bug and Lux turn up to the Baziles abode as Mr. Bazile is leaving for work in his high-end car. Lux hands him an envelope with $3,200 -- the amount Baze owed him for the bar. Oh! Quite the red herring there, old Lux-y... Mr. Bazile snarks that she probably robbed a bank to get the money. She returns, "I'm no expert on parents, but I always thought they just wanted their kids to be happy." I would have gone with a more straightforward, "You're a colossal dickhead, sir." But I guess that's just my style. Mr. Bazile claims he does want Baze to be happy. Lux turns around and calls his crap, saying he really wants Baze to be him and the only reason he stopped believing in Baze was because he finally realized that he hadn't created an exact replica of himself. She finishes by saying that, even though she's only known Baze for a few weeks, she knows he's twice the dad that Mr. Bazile is.
