The Only Girls' Bathroom In School. The bell rings, and Rayanne calls to Sharon from the windowsill; Sharon sets her jaw and turns to face her. "So congratulations, your dream came true," Rayanne smarms. "What dream?" Sharon asks impatiently. Sharon has "an ironclad excuse never to talk to" Rayanne again: "You should be celebrating." Sharon rolls her eyes and asks if Rayanne thinks she's "happy about this" -- someone Sharon cares about "has been hurt." Rayanne sneers that Sharon couldn't wait to run to Angela with the news, and Sharon sneers back that she told Angela what happened "to protect her," and when Rayanne sneers some more, Sharon glares at her and spits out, "That's right! So she would know. Because it's what you do. When someone's your friend." Rayanne doesn't have an answer for that. "You brought this on yourself," Sharon says smugly. "And you're just so happy I did," Rayanne says quietly. Sharon steps forward and, struggling to keep her voice level, mutters, "No. I'm not." Rayanne glares at her. "At all," Sharon whispers, almost inaudibly. More glaring back and forth. Sharon shakes her head and walks away. Rayanne hangs her own head.
A bar/restaurant-type place. Hallie and Graham scuffle over the fact that she brought Chinese food into another restaurant, and over the fact that he hasn't read the prospectus, and over the fact that she "can be a real pain in the ass," and he "could drive a sane person crazy," and every time they have a conversation, "it's like the first one" and she "can't make any damn headway." Yeah, we get it. Hallie goes to move her car.
Chase place. Patty answers the door to find Rayanne twitching and mugging on the doorstep, and tells her that Angela's at school, painting scenery. "Really?" Rayanne asks. "Of course," Patty says, cocking an eyebrow. Patty invites her in; Rayanne, weirded out, hesitates, but Patty asks, "Are you sure?" so Rayanne shrugs and flops inside, telling Patty not to tell Angela she stopped by. She knows Patty will, though, because "you guys are tight." "Tight?" Patty laughs in disbelief. "But, like, if something really horrible happened." Patty squints at her: "Did something really horrible happen?" Rayanne says she doesn't think it's that horrible; Angela "said she was totally over him." "You mean Jordan?" Patty asks, cringing. "Otherwise, I, I woulda never done it, I mean, 'cause it's not something that either of us really it was just, like, this thing that, like, happened." Patty catches her snap, and her eyes widen as Rayanne continues sadly, "It was just, like there." "You and Jordan ?" "You hate my guts," Rayanne says, staring anywhere but at Patty. "I guess I would too, if I were you." "No, no no, I don't hate you," Patty says, sort of absently, adding that she can understand how Angela feels, and stares at Rayanne some more. Rayanne explains that she's never "hurt somebody this bad before." Patty regards her silently. Realizing the full import of what she's done, Rayanne remarks slowly that she guesses you can't hurt someone "this bad unless you really matter to them." Rayanne's eyes fill with tears; Patty gazes at her sympathetically. Rayanne murmurs, "Please don't tell her I was here," and runs out. Patty gets up to go after her.
