Before it goes any further, Obnoxious Friend And Real-Life Brother barges in to share a rehearsal-space bulletin. Jordan makes "whatever, whatever" noises and shoos OFARLB away. Angela leans against a desk and picks at her fingernails; when Jordan turns questioningly back to her, she fishes for an invite: "So you have rehearsal tonight?" Jordan equivocates. Angela tries again, saying that maybe she could hear that song he wrote "sometime." Jordan makes slightly more enthusiastic noises and tells her that they've got rehearsal that night at a loft Tino found, like, yeah, we heard OFARLB, so did Angela -- she wants you to invite her, Catalano, so either come across with it or don't, but for god's sake get on with it. Angela asks if she should go to the loft that night. Jordan says, "Well, you know...whatever," all nervously. Aw. "Catalano! Let's go!" Ah, the siren song of OFARLB. Jordan vanishes into the hall with one last backward look at Angela.
So-Called Bathroom. Angela reviews for Rayanne: "Something...has happened." She doesn't know...she can't explain it...but she understands him...in this way...she didn't even know existed. And it has completely changed everything...everything. Angela and Rayanne giggle. So does Sars, because she remembers the halcyon days of naïveté when finding out that a boy had Something Tragic Going On made all of his shitty behavior Make Sense In A Cosmic Way.
Patty shares the fact that she's eight days late with Camille "Goo" Cherski. Camille observes mildly that "it could be pre-menopause." Patty doesn't take this very well. Camille waxes resigned about someday coming to the end of their eggs. Patty gets depressed. Camille tries to buck her up. Patty mentions the possibility of pregnancy and looks queasy.
On the bleachers, Rayanne barges up to Angela and Rickie to announce to Rickie that Jordan invited Angela to watch Frozen Embryos rehearse, which Rayanne herself has wanted to do for ages. Rickie wants to know about "this thing" that changed everything; Angela says that it's not something she can talk about, except to say that it involves the letter. Rayanne, clutching a pudding cup (shout-out to Wing Chun?), squawks that she "knew it," that "he found the letter, it made him want you." Angela doesn't answer directly, just titters and looks down. Rayanne croons, "Angelika, do you know what this means?" "Yes, I do," Angela sing-songs back. Then, after a beat: "What does it mean?" Hee. Rayanne: "It means this is happening. You're happening. You, and Jordan Catalano." Rickie sits silently behind them, eating a candy bar and looking confused, as Rayanne proceeds to take credit for breaking the Jordan-related impasse. Angela shyly thanks her. Rayanne takes off to meet George the museum guard. Left alone with Angela, Rickie awkwardly congratulates her, and Angela laughs that she can't believe this is happening, and if she ran into Jordan she'd probably faint. "You won't run into him," Rickie says authoritatively, adding that Jordan has Shop fifth period Mondays and Wednesdays, "and he never cuts Shop." Angela: "Awkward pause." Rickie explains that he knows that because he used to pass Jordan on his way to computer class. Angela chooses to accept this: "Oh. Right."
