Patty immediately follows Angela, Graham follows Patty, and Danielle follows Graham. At the stairs, where Angela is evidently on her way up to her room for a good old-fashioned sulk, Patty tells Graham, "You haven't met this Rickie." Angela says, "Stop calling him 'this Rickie.'" Danielle tells Graham, "I did parallel bars today." Okay, Danielle's constant interruptions make for good TV, but bad recaps, so from now on unless Danielle's remarks are directly related to the action in the scene, I'm not going to report them. Over-emphasizing each word, Patty declares, "I find Rickie a little confusing." Angela says, "Okay, so maybe he's bi. Who cares? His cousin can still drive." That has got to be one of the greatest stand-alone quotes of all My So-Called Life-dom. Angela flounces up the stairs and Patty sputters after her, "What? He's what?" Of Graham, she demands, "Do you hear these terms she's throwing around? 'Bi'?" Danielle helpfully informs Patty, "It means 'bisexual.'" Graham asks Danielle, "He's bisexual?" Patty asks Graham, "How can he be 'bi-' anything? He's a child! He's obviously very confused." Angela comes back down to defend Rickie: "No, he's not confused." As if it's any kind of argument, Patty snorts, "He wears eyeliner." Graham conversationally asks, "He does? He wears eyeliner?" Angela tells him, "I thought you were on my side!" Graham says, "I'm not on anyone's side," which is never true, as even Patty knows: "Graham, grow up. Choose a side." He asks Angela whether Rayanne's mother will be there when Angela sleeps over, and Angela says, "No. No, Rayanne lives by her wits, in an alley." Hee! It's funny because it has the ring of truth, but then she takes it back: "Yes, obviously! I mean, she's a mother! They live in the same place! Obviously her mother's going to be there." Danielle -- whatever. Graham looks from Angela to Patty, who snottily says, "Fine. Go. Spend the night at some total stranger's house -- I don't care." Angela moves toward her and snaps, "Yeah, like you really mean that." Patty repeats: "No. Go. And you [to Graham], go shoot pool with your brother, or wherever the hell you're going." Patty starts angrily clearing the table and Angela yells into the kitchen, "Yeah, so you can have it as a grudge, and never forgive me!" Patty says nothing. Angela groans in disgust and stomps out; Graham watches her go. Danielle -- whatever.
