Music montage! Seth and Summer work on their application essays in Seth's room. Ryan and Marissa drive despite not actually owning cars. Seth and Summer seal their application envelopes. Ryan enters Summer's bedroom, but no one's there. Marissa walks up to the empty poolhouse. Seth and Summer hold hands and make their way to the mailbox with their application envelopes. "Whomever gets in, I still love you," Summer says. "And I still love you," Seth says. They mail the envelopes and kiss. Awww! As they walk away, Seth explains why Summer's use of "whomever" was grammatically incorrect in that case, and Summer kicks him viciously. That wasn't so awww.
Marissa has let herself into the poolhouse. She sits on Ryan's bed and takes out her phone to call him. He calls her before she gets the chance. You see, Marissa, when you're nourished, you have the strength to do things like dial people's phone numbers. Ryan has made himself right at home in Summer's bedroom, sitting on her bed and playing with Princess Sparkle. In many ways, Ryan and Marissa are perfect for each other. When they get married, they can ask people to send money instead of gifts and have a cash bar at the reception and be rude for the rest of their lives together! They decide to talk to each other over the phone rather than see each other in person, because they like each other about as much as they like physical affection. They start to share stories of their strange weekends. Marissa tells Ryan how she fell asleep on the couch with Johnny, "and then the next night..." she starts, and the show mercifully fades out before we all sink into Boredom Comas.
