Julia has apparently decided to resume going to classes, and there appear to be no repercussions to the fact that she hasn't attended in about three months. Well, her friend from the Halloween episode is gone, but I doubt that's Julia's fault. But I'm going to blame her anyway. The teacher is talking about "flow" and being creative, and how sometimes you have to just start writing and I'm getting inspired to start the recap but then I look up and see Julia's face and it all comes crashing down. Anyway, the teacher says she wants them to all just start writing on a topic, and the topic is shadow. I swear, I did this writing exercise in the fifth grade, and I think teachers used to pull it out when they wanted a few uninterrupted minutes to do their taxes or something. Anyway, Julia can't bear to have the focus off her for more than a minute so she raises her hand and asks about grammar and syntax and word count, and the teacher ignores her. Everyone else just starts writing, and Julia stares at them. She writes a sentence, then crosses it out. She sees one guy writing like a maniac in the corner. She looks down at her paper, with one crossed-out sentence and about four other words, and just puts her pen down.
Owen is playing basketball. He gets the ball, dribbles and shoots, and misses, and the buzzer sounds to end the game. Victor is standing on the sidelines next to Hughley's dad. Instead of asking him what the hell he was thinking with that name, he tells the dad that Hughley looked good out there. Dad says that Hughley needs to work on his defense. Dude, he's like seven years old. He needs to work on learning to tie his shoes and not to eat paste. Victor mentions that Hughley is spending the night and Dad asks if Bailey will be there. Victor says Bailey will be home later, probably after he puts the kids to bed. Dad walks away and starts talking to Owen and Hughley. The cruelest part of the kid being named Hughley is that he's kind of chubby, so you know everyone called him HUGE-ly. Parents really need to think about these things. Anyway, Owen runs up and asks Victor if he can stay at Hughley's house instead. Victor says he thought Hughley was staying with them. Owen says Hughley's dad offered to take them out for pizza and a movie. Victor says that it's really Bailey's decision. Hughley yells to Owen to hurry up. Owen says that if Bailey has a problem with him staying over, he should come get him, and takes off. Victor looks thoughtful.
