Over at another table, Mary Cherry holds an ice pack to her head and demands to know why Nicole didn't catch her during their trust falls. "How could you let me fall like that...in public?" she asks. "Have you seen your fat ass, Mary Cherry?" asks Nicole. "That's not an ass, that's a cast member of The Sopranos. Why should I give myself a hernia?" Hee! Mary Cherry tries to convince Nicole that she's always had her back. At that moment, Big Bertha Muffin enters. You know Cathy, the desperate binge-eating shopaholic from the Cathy comic strip? The one who has been a single woman on the verge of her thirties for the past fifty years? Okay, imagine a real life version of her...but on steroids. That's Big Bertha Muffin. And she kind of talks like Frankenstein's monster in that each word has a big pause in between. "You...Hit...My...Car," she says to Nicole, showing her the note that Mary Cherry left on her windshield and crushing a Coke can against her forehead. Nicole isn't even fazed. She points out condescendingly that although the note was signed by her, it's written on Mary Cherry's personalized stationery, and therefore Mary Cherry is the one who hit her car. Big Bertha turns to Mary Cherry and tells her that she's going to pay for what she did, Wednesday at six PM at the lockers. "We're going to fight," says Bertha, cracking her knuckles loudly in Mary Cherry's face. Nicole laughs. Mary Cherry faints and falls, yet again into no one's arms.
Empty classroom. George is studying. Sam enters and sits down next to him. He sees her and starts to pack up his books. She gets him to stay and listen to her for a second and gives him the whole "we thought we were going to die" speech that she and Brooke agreed upon. "That makes it okay to betray me?" says George, with only slightly more emotion that a two-by-four. Sam keeps apologizing and begging for forgiveness. George is unmoved.
