Julia and Phoebe are getting coffee in a coffeehouse. Julia is filling Phoebe in on the backstory with Justin, and how he asked her to break up his wedding and then went ahead and married Laura anyway. So they are married! Now, Justin has the nerve to show up on her doorstep and expect something, like Julia didn't summon him with her magical powers. Julia wonders if she did the right thing by blowing him off. Phoebe continues to praise Julia, but Julia doesn't want to recommend slamming doors in guys' faces to Phoebe's readers. Phoebe thinks this is a "special circumstance" because Justin has been "taking advantage" of her for months, and that's not how friends should act. Julia isn't quite comfortable with this characterization of Justin. Phoebe continues to make it all about her, by saying that Justin is just like her ex-boyfriend, Jack. Every time one of Jack's flings didn't work out, he would come crying to Phoebe, and she would sleep with him anyway. Julia doesn't think that really applies, because Justin is different. First, it wasn't just a fling -- he married Laura. And also, Justin "kind of loves [her]" which makes it so hard when he wants her to talk about her feelings, because she kind of loves him too. If she uses the word "riff" or "destiny," I'm quitting. I don't care if there are only two episodes left. Phoebe thought she loves Jack, too, and she continues to talk over Julia, saying, "If he breaks your heart with his selfishness, don't be sorry for breaking his face with your door." I wonder if I can get that embroidered onto a pillow.
Claudia is working on a laptop that I hope is Julia's, because I refuse to believe that this allegedly poverty-stricken family can afford multiple laptops. Todd knocks on the door and then covers his eyes, saying that Victor told him to come right up, and asks if she's decent, while adding, "I hope not." Todd is starting to bug me. All he does lately is gaze at Claudia with this zombie-like grin on his face. I think he's stoned all the time. Anyway, Claudia wonders what he's doing there, and Todd says he knows she has work to do, but he wanted to come and offer a study break. Claudia asks if he ever has homework, but Todd claims he already did it, and he missed her. He asks for thirty minutes so that he can take her out for ice cream. Claudia looks tempted, but says she has to rewrite her paper. Todd looks at the computer and says that the paper is already finished. Didn't she just say she needs to RE-write it? That means it was already written once. Claudia acts all nervous and says that she isn't finished yet, and closes the laptop so that he can't read any more. Todd tells her she is unbelievable. It's about time someone besides Julia got some tertiary character praise. She's smart and talented and beautiful, and he doesn't know what she's doing with him. This praise convinces Claudia that she has time for a study break after all, and they leave.
