In bed, later, Graham says, "He never showed." Patty flips on the light. Graham spins a good yarn: "We were all just sitting there waiting. And then this kind of...loud woman starts complaining, which sort of broke the ice. She had one of those flip phones in her purse. ["Remember when very few people had those? How quaintly 1994." -- Sars] She even had Stefan Dieter's assistant's number, you know, the kind of obnoxious person who has everything. So she calls him. And it turns out that Stefan Dieter had been rushed to the emergency room with food poisoning. But supposedly not from his own food, these tainted shrimp, at some book signing. Then this woman, the obnoxious one, got them to reschedule the class for Friday." Patty: "How strange." Please note that he describes this new woman as loud once, and obnoxious twice, and methinks the Graham doth protest too much.
Boiler room. Jordan Catalano comes through the door and pops some breath mints into his mouth. Awww. Then, one of his idiot friends comes in behind him, and asks if he's going to Buffalo Tom on Friday: "Tino found out they're playing at Pike Street, Friday, like, unannounced." As they discuss this important turn of events, we see that Angela is down the stairs and around the corner, hiding so that Jordan's moron pal won't see her. Jordan comes downstairs, where Angela is pretending to read her Geometry book, and flashes his smile, and says, "I was hoping you'd be here." And the guitar of puppy love strums away. But then Angela asks Jordan if he's going to see Buffalo Tom on Friday, and he's all, "What? Huh? Who? Where? What do you mean? Who? What? Why?" Angela gets the picture: "No reason." And the lip-mashing starts. Oh, man, he is so totally controlling her. Rayanne is, like, so right, or whatever.
The Only Bathroom At School. Rayanne is checking out her hair in the mirror, and she says, "Rat it, spray it, tease it, freeze it, spike it, shave it, or shove it?" The only one I'm not sure about is the first one. Anyway, Sharon emerges from a stall and says, "Excuse me. Have you ever been to a class?" Rayanne: "Excuse me. I was addressing myself." Yeah, let's talk about that, shall we? Is she still in counseling? Good. Just before heading out the door, Sharon turns back and says, "So what's the deal? With Angela and Jordan Catalano?" Rayanne demurs, but Sharon is persistent: "Are they, like, a couple?" Rayanne, who is performing one of the above-mentioned operations on her hair (I'm not sure which one), replies, "From the point of view of what I believe, or the point of view of what she believes?" Sharon wants the point of view of reality, and Rayanne says, "What do you think?" When Sharon says she things Angela could really get hurt, Rayanne says, "Tell me something I don't know." So, basically, Rayanne adds no actual information to this exchange. She could have been just as useful without ever having heard of Angela or Jordan Catalano.
