Peyton talks to her dad on the new-fangled web cam. She sits down in front of the computer and asks, "What's going on with the Unabomber look?" Larry replies, "I was going for George Clooney." Mmmm. Yummy. Clooney. Peyton giggles, "Go further." Larry laughs, too. Then he says something about Peyton's not really seeing him like that, because he usually shaves off his beard before he comes home. Peyton tells him to find his razor for the day after tomorrow. So, it looks like three weeks have passed. That means we're five weeks into the Brooke-Lucas relationship. At least we have some sort of timeline. Brooke and Lucas come into the room; Larry jokes, "I see no one uses the doorbell." Brooke makes some sort of comment about how the beard's "working" for "Papa Peyton." Then Larry asks, "What are you guys up to so early?" Brooke's about to spill the beans when Peyton interrupts and says, "Oh, no, you'll find out when you get home." Blah, love you dad, blah see you later, blah web cam out, blah. Brooke wants to know what's going on. Peyton, smiling again, says she needs her and Luke's help with something.
Outside Peyton's house -- maybe around the back -- they take the tarp off a red sports car. Lucas whistles, as he looks at the car he says, "Damn! That's nice." He drools, and then asks if it's her dad's car. Peyton says it is, but that her dad hasn't driven it in a year; she wants to know if Luke can get it to run. Brooke replies, "Of course he can, and he's going to look good doing it, too, in a tight little wife-beater, maybe some grease smudges." Ew. Gushy-girlfriend Brooke has got to go, it's nauseating. Oh, so now Luke can work on a car? But not actually get paid. Keith would have his hide. Peyton grabs onto Brooke, and she asks if Brooke can help Peyton to wash and wax the car. She just wants to do something nice for her dad for when he gets home. Yawn. Blah setting up the tragic circumstances blah. Luke opens the hood and stares at the motor like he actually knows what to do. Good acting, CMM; you didn't even try to turn it on first to see if it actually runs. Luke says, "Okay, I'll go get my tools." Heh, as if.
The Scott doorbell rings, and Nathan answers the door. There stand Grandma and Grandpa Scott. Grandma yells, "Surprise!" Grandpa grouches, "You answer the door in your underwear?" Nathan's stunned to see them. Deb comes to the door quickly saying, "Royal! May! What a surprise." The grandparents start bickering about Royal's dragging May to another "auto convention." Then, Grandma explains that she only agreed to go if they could see Dan on his birthday. But wait! There's a slight problem -- looks like Deb actually forgot that her husband was having a birthday. Oops. Finally, Nathan and Deb invite the Scott grandparents into the house. On the way in, Royal says, "Well, Deb, it looks like you put on a few; it looks good on you." There's nothing like your in-laws's greeting you by telling you you're getting fat. Like obnoxious father, like obnoxious son.
