Anyhow, Angela gives Mr. K a "whaaaatever" look before commenting to Sharon that he "just wears you down," and Sharon confides apropos of nothing that she dreamed last night that she and Rayanne "were appearing in this water ballet together. For, like, charity." Angela raises a brow.
And here's what Sharon's dream means. Water stands for spirituality. Water ballet takes place in a pool, usually, and a pool means that the dreamer doesn't have a spiritual outlet; Sharon is conscientious to the point of anxiety, so that fits. Dance, by contrast, symbolizes heartfelt expression. So, add the presence of Rayanne in the dream you get the gist. Rayanne stands for a freedom Sharon wishes she had, although we didn't need her dream to tell us that.
So, another student walks through the foreground, and we fade through the student's fugly shirt to Brian and Jordan at their tutoring session. Brian is giving Jordan his marching orders, something about a story that actually happened to Jordan and using certain vocab words in the story and blah; Jordan is slumped in his chair, chin on forearm, not listening. Brian says something about flashcards and Jordan bursts out with, "I blew it." Brian asks if that's part of the story (heh), and Jordan grumbles that he should forget about the story: "I can't think about some crappy story, my life sucks too much." Brian nods, going for "sympathetic" but taking a hard left at "inappropriately curious," and asks with studied informality, "Yeah, how come?" "'Cause, she she hates me," Jordan mopes, adding that he deserves it. Brian nods some more. Jordan asks if Brian knows who he means; Brian uh-duhs that he does. Jordan tells Brian what happened earlier, that he "tried to explain to her that I was, you know sorry or whatever." "So what happened?" Nothing, Jordan says. Brian nods again, as if that's what he expected would happen. Jordan adds that he didn't know what to say, although when you look at that conversation as compared to all the others Jordan and Angela have had, he probably said more than he had in their other interactions combined, but in any case, Brian snips, "Say you're sorry." Jordan sighs, beleaguered.
