Back at his apartment, Ted tears the place apart, looking for the missing wallet. No dice. Blake walks in at the absolutely worst time. Ted asks him where he's been. Blake says he went out to get Ted the three-disc set of Thais. Blake: "I asked the guy at the store if he knew another good opera about a slut." Hee! Ted says that the set is expensive, but Blake replies that he didn't care how much it cost. Ted says that he does, and asks Blake how he managed to pay for it. Blake cautiously replies that he tracked down a friend who owed him some money. Ted replies, "And you spent all of it on me." In a small, confused voice, Blake answers, "Not all of it." Ted's had enough: "Look, you can keep the cash, I don't care about that. But please give it back to me so I don't have to cancel my cards." Blake has no idea what he's talking about. Ted snaps, "God, you must think that I am so pathetic. My wallet, that's what I'm talking about." Blake swears that he didn't take Ted's wallet. Ted sneers that he believes Blake: "It just walked out on its own. So, if you happen to see it out walking around in the streets, would you please ask it to come home?" He orders Blake to get out. Blake asks where he should go, and Ted screams, "Wherever you would have gone if I hadn't picked you up off that restroom floor, taken you to the hospital, and brought you back here!" Well, off to Hell you go, then. Don't forget your snowball. Blake, blinking back tears, asks Ted about the clothes he gave him. Ted tells Blake to keep them, and then gives him back Thais: "Return this for the money your 'friend' gave you. I already have it." He slams the door on the way out.
Debbie's. Debbie's working on the sewing machine as Justin tries to sneak past her up the stairs. She tells him to hold on, there; she found something interesting in the trash: Justin's sketchpad and sketches. Justin says that he doesn't want them, which is why he threw them away. Debbie's like, but these are works of art! Justin tells her that she can frame them, if she likes, but he's giving up art. He tries to go upstairs, but Debbie tells him to hang on a sec. What's up? Debbie: "You don't just give it up. It's like giving up eating, or breathing." Justin replies, "I'm still inhaling and exhaling. Call me when dinner's ready." Okay, that was a good line. Debbie tells him not to be a smartass: "You're an artist." Justin shrugs, "Big deal." Debbie says that it is a big deal: "That's something that was given to you!" Justin says that he didn't ask for it, and that he doesn't want it. Debbie says it's too late: "It's yours, it's who you are!" Justin says that it's not who he is, and that he's going to Dartmouth and getting an MBA. Which I don't get. I'd understand if there was some conflict over who's going to pay for college, but no one's mentioned that. So, apparently, Justin's going to go to Dartmouth to try to make it up to his father that he's gay, or something. His father isn't speaking to him because he's gay, but going to Dartmouth is going to change everything? Justin adds that that's what his parents want. Debbie shakes her head, "Well, with all due respect to your mother, who's a very lovely lady, who gives a shit what they want? This is your life!" Justin tells her that his parents are getting a divorce: "I've caused them so much trouble." Debbie tells him that he's not the reason they broke up: "No kid has the power to do that. Just like you don't have the power to put them back together. But you do have the power to fuck up your own life. Make sure you think twice before you do it."
