After the commercial, Seth, Anna, and Anna's ugly-ass long ponytail catch up on old times. Anna says that she's happy in Pittsburgh and doesn't even miss Newport's endless sunny days, which I'd say is partly because the girl seems to have been hitting up the tanning booths, what with the orange leathery skin she's sporting. Anna has kept tabs on Seth by getting into his comic book, which can now be seen on VERIZON WIRELESS VCAST, AVAILABLE TO ALL VERIZON WIRELESS CUSTOMERS (for a small fee, I'm sure). Anna pulls it up on her cell phone with a lightning speed that my Verizon Wireless phone never seems to have, and Seth informs her that he traded his comic book to Zach in return for Summer. I'll bet he feels pretty stupid about that now that he doesn't have Summer or a movie deal with George Lucas or even a college to fall back on! Anna tells Seth to tell Summer she said "Hi," which he totally won't, and then he informs her that he isn't actually a prospective Brown student. "YOU DIDN'T GET IN?!" Anna squeals, looking absolutely delighted. Guys, is Anna...uh...special? Because so far, I have to say that she seems kind of dim. Seth shushes her, and then tells her that he's here to get into Brown, although he doesn't have a plan as to how to accomplish this goal. He's hoping that Anna will be able to help him out. She thinks for a second, and then tells Seth that there is a faculty meet-and-greet thing tonight, and that Dr. Oglivy, the "admissions dude," will be there. All Seth has to do is figure out what to say to him. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that there is absolutely nothing Seth can say or do, short of donating a few millions dollars to Brown, that will get him into that school after being rejected.
Julie needs something from Kirsten, so she heads over to her house to pretend that they're still friends, and request her and Sandy's company at the retirement dinner. Kirsten says that she's busy that night, but Julie won't take "no" for an answer. Kirsten explains that she and Sandy have hit a "rough patch," and that she doesn't really want to help him do more networking for his stupid hospital project. Julie tells her to forget about Sandy and do this for her. After being such a good friend to Kirsten by doing things like trying to send her adopted son to jail, Julie needs a favor in return: she simply can't show her face in society without Kirsten at her side. Sounding tired and kind of drugged, Kirsten agrees to go, saying that she's only doing it for Julie. Mission accomplished, Julie takes off and leaves Kirsten to sit around by herself and drink tea and not have anyone in her life except for the people who stop by for as long as it takes to get something out of her.
