Over at Terminator High, John notices the blond girl (the mysterious one, not the freaked-out one) coming down the hall. As nonchalantly as he can, he asks if she's going to chem, and she says she is and they silently shuffle down the hallway together. They come upon another trompe l'oeil, inside this time, with a little more detail. This time, the letters on the door seem to read DAN, and there's a painted bra hanging from the handle. Standing there, clutching her books to her chest and fighting back tears, is the freaked-out blond girl from before. She pushes her way through the crowd, all straight long bangs and quivering lip, away from the painting, and there is muffled Marie Antoinette-esque (as in "comprehensible only with subtitles on") whispering. "She is such a skanky whore" is said, with the captions revealing it's "...skanky, slutty whore." That's much worse! "I can't ever talk to her ever again" is apparently also said, but I couldn't make it out. Oh, and there's "whore" again.
We're in the girls' bathroom. Cameron's in there, amusingly, I suppose to touch up her makeup. She stands behind a couple of girls to speak approvingly of things that are "tight," in this instance, the particular shade of makeup one of the girls is wearing. Also "tight," I guess, but in a different way, is the dress she's wearing, because she calls herself a pig and says she looks pregnant. Instead of asking her friend, she for some reason turns around and asks complete stranger Cameron, "Does this make me look fat?" We unfortunately do not get a Cameron point-of-view overlay in which she runs down the possible responses (and hopefully, "fuck you, asshole" was an option) before choosing "yes." Now the angry girl would like to know what Cameron's problem is. "You asked," points out Cameron. The pregnant pig appeals to her friend, who says, "Bitch whore much?" Unsurprisingly, as this does not in any way resemble an English-language sentence, Cameron says she doesn't understand. "I said, 'bitch...whore...much?'" Cameron doesn't respond, so the girl snaps, "What are you looking at?" "I'm looking at you," says Cameron, her flat affect and stare going a long way to seeming like a threat. The school bell rings, and the girls clear out, except for Cameron, who picks up the forgotten "tight" makeup on the counter. And when the hubbub has died down, Cameron can hear someone sobbing in a stall. She goes to investigate, and it's the sobbing blond girl -- let's call her She Bangs -- who really hates trompe l'oeils. "You saw it, right? It's so...freakin' big, and right out there!" she says. "It's freaking big," repeats Cameron, and this is taken as sisterly solidarity, I suppose. "Whoever's doing this is such a jackass," says She Bangs. "I mean, who would do this? And how would they even know? My parents...they're going to kill me! Kill me!" Cameron cocks her head, possibly wondering about trading techniques with She Bangs' parents. She Bangs breaks down sobbing. "You're upset," says Cameron, because this is one impressively analytical Terminator we have here. "No kidding I'm upset! My life is freaking over!" Cameron offers her a present, the discarded makeup. "It's tight," she says, emotionlessly. Hey, remember two episodes ago in the pilot when Cameron knew how to smile? She Bangs shakes her head and stomps out of the bathroom.
