Oh god, the pen scene. I can't take it. Okay, so Angela's staring at the Drama Club list or something on a bulletin board, and Jordan calls out, "Angela!" She slits her eyes and drifts away from him, but he follows her: "Hey!" She turns around reluctantly. "Didn't you hear me?" "No," she says, barely parting her lips. Jordan chews on a pen for an endless moment, during which Angela looks like she can barely restrain herself from striking him, and then proffers the pen: "Here." Angela, revolted: "Why are you giving this to me?" "'Cause it's yours." "Well I don't want it!" she snaps, holding it out for him to take back. "It's your pen," Jordan says, ruffled, and Angela snorts, "So?" "You lent it to me in Katimski's remember?" Angela goes back into glacier mode: "Not really." Jordan thinks it over, then tries to get a rise out of her by demanding the pen back if it's not hers. Angela grunts, "No," and stares at him, hard. Jordan, backed down, walks away. Angela slams the pen into a trashcan.
Cut to Drama Club, where Brian is rambling to a blonde about how he "was influenced by Spielberg, um, but I think my, my recent work is more like Tarantino, only less violent." You know, I can point to maybe three times when a cultural reference seems dated on this show, but that's definitely one of them. Anyway, Brian's smiling, but the smile fades when he spots something off-camera: "Oh my god." Oh, no. This scene is so very, very painful. No, no, no ohhh, here we go. Rickie turns around, looking amused, and then Angela appears, made up, hair braided and crimped -- in short, totally Rayanned out. She asks to speak to Corey for a second, and Rickie asks, "Are you okay?" "Yes, God!" she snaps. Angela and Corey walk off to one side, and Angela adopts Rayanne's slippery body language before getting right to the point: "Do you have anything to drink, or anything?" Corey, shocked: "You drink?" Angela, miffed: "Yeah, why shouldn't I?" She asks if he thinks she's too innocent, and even though Corey says no, she grouses, "Well, I'm sick of being like that," and then with absolutely no preamble proceeds to maul Corey with a kiss, which he fights off. "What?" she snaps, and when he tries to explain that she's, you know, having a psychotic episode, she whines, "Why, is there something really wrong with me?" Corey tries to tell her that's not it, but Angela sniffs, "Oh, please -- can't we just get really drunk or something?" Rayanne appears and asks what Angela's talking about: "You don't drink." She pushes past Corey as Angela says coldly, "Get away from me." Corey leaves them alone, and Rayanne, desperate for a connection, perks, "Well, I got the part! I never would've gotten it if it wasn't for you." Angela, her back to Rayanne, mutters flatly that she doesn't "care anymore, okay? So just go away." "You're not the only one who got hurt," Rayanne says, and Angela rounds on her: "Well, forgive me if I can't feel sorry for you, Rayanne." Rayanne is on a roll, though, and storms over to Angela, squawking that Angela "lost a lousy, selfish friend, a guy you never really had, you lost nothing!" Angela turns to hug the wall, willing Rayanne to go away, as Rayanne goes on, "I lost a really good friend. I lost everything." Crying, she walks away. Angela rolls her eyes.
