Cut to the high school, where Jessie and Katie are the only ones in the magically empty halls. Katie flits around the place doing what could be described as "dancing," but that would forever rob the word of its true meaning. So, let's see, she twirls. And she kicks a locker or two. And then she twirls some more. That about does it. She asks Jessie if she wants to go somewhere with a group of them later. Glumly, Jessie says she can't; she has to go shopping with her mom. She laughs and asks Katie what she's doing. "Come on!" Katie says, grabbing her hand. "I can't dance!" Jessie protests, which seems perfectly fine, since Katie can't either. Katie gives up and lets go of Jessie after a few twirls. Jessie says she doesn't really want to go shopping, but her mom's been depressed lately. "Mine too," Katie says, winding down. "Really?" Jessie asks. "Yeah, she just doesn't know it yet," Katie says. "She thinks everyone stays in the same housecoat until four o'clock every day for a year." She does a couple pirouette-y things across the hallway, to emphasize how little it affects her. She asks Jessie if her mom cries. Jessie takes a seat on the floor, against a locker, and says she does. Katie finally stops moving around, thank Pete, and asks whether Jessie's going to go shopping. Jessie smiles, pained, and says, "You should see the things she wants me to buy." Katie settles on the floor next to her, and then keeps going until she's fully reclined on the floor, hair and all. Which the janitor must appreciate, since now he won't have to sweep there. Katie says that Jessie should go, and then shifts gears, musing about clothes, and how everyone their age dresses to hide who they are, rather than express it. "And then some guy figures it out and makes, like, a billion dollars." She laughs at the absurdity and rolls toward Jessie. The janitor must be crying tears of joy by now. She looks up at Jessie, who just looks back, waiting. Katie rolls her eyes at herself and apologizes for going on like that. Jessie assures her that she likes it. Katie looks earnestly at Jessie and says, "You should go with her." Jessie seems to consider this advice.
