Spencer's dad criticizes her choice of eating a pear, since she earned herself a three-course dinner for winning a national award and landing a big client. This family is weird with their reward system. Food for grades, shopping for breakups. He says that the client signing almost didn't happen, since said client wanted lunch at the club and he didn't make a reservation, and while Spencer was in the locker room, he had to make a scene. He says that he told the manager that Alex (aka Chin Dimple the Second) didn't call it in. She's concerned that Alex will be fired, but dad doesn't care since it doesn't affect his bottom line. He doesn't get why she's upset, since she's just as competitive, but she doesn't like his means or his weird reward system. She tells him he doesn't have to read her essay because she stole it. But it's OK, because she won a prize. So he should be happy. Go, Spencer!
Emily walks past The Grill and sees Toby still reading Catcher in the Rye. She heads in and tells him she was hoping he'd be there so she could tell him how much she liked tracks 3,7 and 9. And so she could apologize profusely for dissing him the night before. She even made him a mix tape, though it lacks the lovely artwork that his had.
Spencer's at the club meeting Alex, who seemingly still has a job, and they head out for their date. Aria hands mostly-forgotten Mike some dinner she made. He wants to know if mom is still hiding in her room and if dad is home. He wonders if their parents will work it out. She says she doesn't know. And that's it. I prefer the shocking "A" twisty endings instead of this calm pondering style.
