Anyway, in her room, Angela sits on the bed, taking off her coat and listening to the stereo. Graham marches in and announces that Patty doesn't want Angela to go to the concert, and that it's his fault for not checking with Patty first. Angela snaps, "What?" He apologizes some more and says, "You'd better give the tickets back." Angela snots, "Why do you need the tickets?" Graham, terse: "Why do you need them, if you're not going? Just give them back." Angela lies that Rayanne has them, and that she'll be at Chase Place "any second." Graham says he's sorry, and Angela yells, "No, I'm sorry! She's counting on me to come, and I'm not going to do this to her!" Graham, raising his voice a little, offers to call Rayanne and explain the situation. Angela, much more shrill now, reminds him that this was his idea. Graham shouts, "I made a mistake! I'm not perfect!" Angela folds her arms and spits, "Oh, believe me, that's become really clear." He leans toward her, but she's closer to the window, glances out and says that Rayanne's there, and flies downstairs before he can say anything. Patty, still at the door, tries to stop Angela by calling her name, but Angela ignores her and tears outside, Graham hot on her heels. Patty asks him what's going on. From the landing, Graham asks, "Did she get into Rayanne's car?" Patty looks outside and reports, "She's gone." Graham makes a defeated gesture. Patty employs her most steely and judgmental tone to lecture Graham: "I cannot believe that you let this go this long." Graham yells back that he forgot. Patty shoots back, "Oh, come on! Why don't you just admit it! You want her to go to this stupid concert!" And so he does: "Look, I saw the Grateful Dead when I was fifteen years old. It was one of the eight best nights of my life!" Eight? Who makes a Top Eight list? Anyway, Graham continues by saying that it was something he wanted to give Angela, and Patty stomps past him up the stairs, ignoring him. Graham spits at the back of her head, "Oh, fine, leave -- just like he does!" Patty very coldly advises him, "You leave my father out of this." She starts to mutter something else that we can't hear. Graham theatrically cups his hand around his ear and asks, "What did you say?" Patty snaps, "It's not worth repeating!" Which is also just like her dad. Get it?
