My So-Called Bathroom. Sharon clomps in, kvetching about a run in her stocking; Rayanne sits on the windowsill. When Sharon comes up to the sinks, Rayanne asks if she wants to know "something really laughable?" and as Sharon ices her down with a glare, Rayanne fake-guffaws, "I have no friends," and then the smile falls straight off of her face. Sharon arches a brow. Rayanne jumps down and lists her former friends: Angela, whom they "obviously can't discuss"; Rickie, "totally not [her] friend" anymore; Tino, whatever. Rayanne draws closer to Sharon and says, "You're probably thinkin', [Valley Girl voice] 'So what? You, like, deserve to have no friends,'" and when Sharon rolls her eyes, Rayanne says sadly, "I mean…that is what you're…thinking. Isn't it?" and stares searchingly into Sharon's eyes. Sharon, provoked, snaps that she's never met anyone like Rayanne -- Rayanne will "say anything…and a person can say anything to" Rayanne, and Rayanne's, like, "non-shockable, or…something." "It's refreshing, isn't it?" Rayanne wheedles, and against her will, Sharon smiles and admits that "it is, kind of...refreshing." "Refreshing," Rayanne whispers to herself forlornly. "So you do," Sharon tells her crisply. Rayanne looks quizzical. "Have a friend," Sharon clarifies. Rayanne, suddenly flustered, draws back from Sharon as Sharon goes on, "I mean, maybe not the one you want, but…" Rayanne busies herself with something on the windowsill; Sharon looks at her pityingly. Rayanne blurts out, "I screwed up." Sharon walks over to Rayanne and tugs on her braids: "Duh squared." Both of them smile ruefully. Rayanne grabs her bag, sighs, "Yeeeah," and heads out of the girls' room.
Chase Place. General confusion -- Patty adjusting her earring, Graham with a covered dish, Danielle whatever. Patty offers to cancel with Tony; Graham tells her that "it's fine, honest," and leaves. Patty is disappointed that Graham isn't territorial. WHATEVER, PATTY.
Mr. K's. Kids mill around, and Mr. K is holding a yappy dog while Delia stands far too close to Rickie to ask about accepting checks; in the background, Angela comes in the front door. Rickie gives her a hug and teases her about going MIA all day, and Angela's all, "Tee hee. Hey…what do you mean?" Rickie tells her he knows "all about the letter," and Angela gets miffy and asks how he knows, then figures it out: "Brian Krakow. Reason for all pain." Rickie looks over at the other kids, then draws Angela aside, and as Mr. K calls out directions in the background, Rickie murmurs, "You realize that Brian wrote that letter, right?" Angela's face does its soufflé imitation, and she lies that she "kinda figured that." Rickie, relieved, says he doesn't "feel so bad for blabbing it, then -- I kinda figured you'd figure it out." Angela, her mind racing, adopts a nonchalant mien and whispers, "Well, yeah," but she's totally failing to cover, and as she looks down, Rickie studies her face. Over at the table, Mr. K says enough with the tickets and asks if the kids want to go out for pizza. Angela thinks fast, then asks Mr. K for a ride home; he says sure. Delia struggles with the zipper on her jacket (she's also got on a beret with a giant red bow on the front. Thank the Lord those went out of style), and Rickie sees her, thinks fast himself, and tells Mr. K that he'll "be right down." A sulking Angela is the first one out the door.
