Cut to Jordan complaining about how he can't face rehearsal, the "big empty hole where Tino used to be," blah blah blah greasy-hair-cakes. Angela makes consoling noises. Then, after a great deal of hair-behind-ear-tucking and lip-chewing and saying she knows it's probably a stupid idea, she hesitantly brings up the possibility of, "like, a girl" filling the lead singer slot for Frozen Embryos, "like Rayanne Graff or something." Jordan, in irritated disbelief: "Rayanne? Graff." Angela laughs, cringes a few thousand times, tells him to forget it, and gets out of the car. Brief shot of Jordan, pondering.
Rayanne badgers Rickie, "So did she talk to him? Because I hear they rehearse tonight, and I guess I should probably be there -- right?" Rickie not-very-subtly tries to discourage her, saying that the band doesn't even have a name at the moment. Rayanne says fine, then she'll give them a name, and "it'll be a totally new era -- an era of me!" Heh. I've always loved that line. Rickie gently asks her what happens if the band doesn't want her, but Rayanne doesn't see why they wouldn't -- she's cute, she's "a total exhibitionist," and she can sing "as loud and obnoxious as Tino." She reaches up to adjust Rickie's bandanna; in the background, Brian "Duh-nehy" Krakow eavesdrops.
Rickie doesn't want Rayanne to make too big a deal out of this, and Rayanne asks if he thinks she'll start drinking herself "into a stupor over some stupid band," and Rickie protests too much that he doesn't think that, but he "actually spoke to Angela," and it didn't sound like they want a girl singer. "Did she explain how good I am?" Rayanne asks, slightly taken aback; Rickie, fed up with trying to let Rayanne down easy, shrugs that he's just telling her what Angela said, and she should really talk to Angela herself. "Well, maybe I will," Rayanne snots, and stomps off. Rickie sighs, then glances quickly at Brian before slamming his locker and leaning against it. Brian walks up beside Rickie: "What -- what is it, what did she do?" "Nothing, yet," Rickie says with a mixture of impatience and sadness, and explains that when Rayanne's "excited like this? It's kind of...dangerous." He walks off. Brian furrows his brow.
