Kirsten finally gets to the point -- these adults need to realize that the show's not about them and get on with it already -- and asks what's been going on. Jimmy confides that it's been a bad year for him because of the market, and then further admits that it's actually been "disastrous." He claims it will be a struggle for him just to remain solvent, and Kirsten quickly moves to prevent further groveling on Jimmy's part by asking, "How much do you need?" Jimmy laughs in discomfort and says it's a lot of money -- too much money. Not to much money, however, to have put himself in the position of asking her for it. He finally admits that he needs $100,000, and Kirsten doesn't react, but instead simply says, "I'll call the bank." Upstairs, Marissa looks dismayed. Really, you'd think with all these kids have, $100,000 would seem like nothing to them. They're houses are worth at least twenty times that. Jimmy insists that he can't take the money from her, but Kirsten insists that he can. Jimmy pledges to pay her back, admitting that it will take him a couple of months. She jokes, "I know where you live." For the first time since we've met Jimmy, he seems happy and almost relaxed, as he goes back to admiring the model home. Kirsten expositions that the new contractors are coming tomorrow to finish the job. Jimmy thinks it sound like a nightmare, and Kirsten agrees that it is. They exit.
Upstairs, Ryan stares his sideways stare at Marissa, as Seth asks if she's okay. Marissa only repeats that the contractors are coming tomorrow. Ryan guesses that means he's gone.
Seth, back at the Big House, sits at his computer looking at a travel site and debating whether to purchase a bus ticket to Austin for the morning. While he deliberates, he drums his fingers on the table and then on his lap. Aw. He's so cute. Sandy barges in, causing Seth to scramble to shut off his monitor and ask, "Hey! We're not knocking anymore?" Sandy barely apologizes because of course he's not knocking anymore! He's too busy trying to catch his son in the most invasive ways possible! Sandy snoops after what he's doing, and Seth explains that he's busy. Sandy whines that he's always busy, and Seth mutters, "It's the price of fame." He claims to have to go, but Sandy stops him in his tracks by announcing that Ryan was found. He then clarifies this statement by explaining that someone meeting Ryan's description was spotted in a fight down by the pier, so he's probably still in the area. Sandy is in a rush to find Ryan before the authorities do and Ryan finds himself in even deeper trouble. When Seth explains that he was just going somewhere, Sandy implores, "Seth, he's your friend." And so a resigned Seth has no choice but to join his father in searching for his missing friend when Seth knows exactly where he is.
