Nada stares at Angela some more, and then the bell rings, the class fades out of its desks, and Nada, eating her lunch, talks to Angela alone. Angela stands awkwardly in front of Nada's desk until Nada asks her to sit down, which she does, allowing AVO to observe, "Seeing a teacher's actual lunch, is, like, so depressing. Not to mention her bra strap." As soon as AVO has noted it, Nada slides that sucker back up and cheerfully says, "So. You quit Yearbook, hm?" Angela opens her mouth, and says nothing. Nada says, "No explanation? Your appearance has altered. I'm really concerned you're getting off on the wrong foot. Is there a problem at home?" Angela looks away, and then says, "It just seems like you agreed to have a certain personality, or something. For no reason. Just to make things easier for everyone. But when you think about it, how do you know if it's even you?" There's a loud noise of boys roughhousing in the halls, and then Angela resumes her speech: "And, I mean, this whole thing with Yearbook -- it's like everybody's in this big hurry to make this book, to supposedly remember what happened, but it's not even what really happened, it's what everyone thinks was supposed to happen. Because if you made a book of what really happened, it would be a really upsetting book. You know, in my humble opinion." This explanation doesn't appear to set Nada's mind at all at ease, and she looks more concerned about Angela than ever.
Angela takes her book into the kitchen, where Graham is working over the sink. AVO says, "My dad sells printing. It was in my mom's family. My dad was just supposed to do it for a while. Then he was supposed to go to chef's school, but he never did. I'm not sure why." He turns around and gives Angela a big smile. Aw. Angela steps into the room, saying, "You should see what they call chili con carne at school. First of all, it's just beans." Graham says, "Well, it's not chili con carne." "I know," Angela says. Graham adds, "Con carne. With meat....I think the lack of meat is destroying America." Angela smiles, and AVO says, "My mom took over the business. She's kind of my dad's boss now, which I guess he tries not to think about." Graham says that Patty won't be home until late, and adds, "You know, I think you give her too hard a time, sometimes. She just wants you to be happy. She wants everyone to be happy." Angela's good mood crumbles at the mention of Patty, and she says, "No, that's you." Graham says, "My point -- I mean, think of all of the things that she does. For you." Angela considers, and then exclaims, "Out of nowhere, she'll get in this mood, and her lips will get all tight..." Graham smiles with recognition, and Angela continues, "It's just so obvious that she's looking for someone to blame." "Yeah," Graham admits, "but you know that's not the real her. Just try to be nicer to her, once in a while, as an experiment." Angela agrees, and then says, "Dad, there's this thing tonight? At this friend of Rayanne's house? Like, this rehearsal? Um, for this play that we might all do as extra credit, and I know Mom says no going out on school nights, but this is, like, part of school! And I won't be home late, and I just really want to go." Graham smiles, enjoying the opportunity to say yes.
