Back inside, Ryan makes himself at home on the couch. We see Luke spread some sort of dip on a cracker and attempt to feed it to his unnamed clone/friend. The unnamed clone/friend pushes it out of his face, and then it falls on the floor, causing them to groan. Yes. That just happened. If you missed it, then that's your loss. Marissa watches this bizarre display, and then spots Ryan on the couch; she calls him over, but he waves it off with a "that's okay" kind of gesture. So she heads toward him and he gets up to meet her halfway, asking if she's sure she wants to be seen with him. She insists that she's glad that he came, asking, "How could you possibly miss all this?" They scan the room, and there's Luke staring at them. Ryan quickly says he's going to go, but Marissa claims they're not doing anything wrong. Luke's upon them, though, snitting that now that Ryan has moved in, he's making himself right at home. Marissa admonishes Luke -- he said he was going to try! Luke is trying, though -- trying to understand why, with all the people there, Ryan only wants to talk to Marissa. Marissa argues that she wanted to talk to Ryan, and Luke tells her to go talk to Summer because Summer's looking lonely. Marissa suggests that he go talk to Summer, and she'll stay and finish her conversation with Ryan. Ryan repeats that he'll leave. Marissa tells him to stay. Luke tells Marissa not to tell Ryan he can stay. Ryan tells Luke not to tell Marissa not to tell him not to stay. Or something like that. Luke thought Ryan was leaving, and offers to help him out, grabbing his arm. Ryan insists that he's not going to fight Luke, who asks, "Even if I do this?" sucker-punching Ryan in the stomach. Ryan drops to his knees, and Marissa checks to make sure he's okay, then storms out of the party, but not before loudly proclaiming, "God, Luke, you're such an idiot!" Seth squats down on the floor next to Ryan and says, "Wow! You just got your butt kicked and you didn't even fight back. Dude, you really are a Cohen." Hee. Ryan plaintively stares at him, as Seth helps him up.
The camera scans the nighttime ocean. Pool house. Ryan reads a magazine as Seth enters in his tux and tails. Not my favorite look, the tails. That aside, he's Adam Brody, so of course he looks cute. Seth asks what Ryan is doing, and why he isn't dressed. Ryan responds that he's not going, causing Seth to throw his head back in dismay. Ryan asks Seth to inform Anna -- he thinks she'll probably be relieved. Seth asks if he's not going because of Luke, but that's not what Ryan is afraid of. Ryan explains that being taken in by the Cohens is "like, the best thing that ever happened to [him]," and that he's not going to lose it "just to kick some guy's ass." Seth asks, "But you could've totally kicked his ass, right?" and is relieved when Ryan responds in the affirmative. Seth exits with typical finesse, telling Ryan to have fun.
