The next morning, Seth enters the poolhouse with a cup of coffee just for Ryan. But Ryan's nowhere to be found, and Seth mutters an "oh no," because he really doesn't want to do the Ryan's Upset and Missing! thing he's already had to do fifty thousand times in less than three seasons alone. Fortunately, Ryan is still there -- he was just in the shower. Seth says he's glad to see that last night's events didn't cause Ryan to do something stupid, like run away from home. No, he's going to do something really stupid. Ryan says he never expected to go to college before he met the Cohens, and that no one else in his family even finished high school. And because they're all such great examples, he's dropping out of school, too. "Have you told my parents?" Seth asks, assholishly not referring to them as parents to both of them. Ryan doesn't answer.
Ryan informs Marissa about his decision over the phone as she closes her locker. She hangs up on him when the bell rings, saying they'll talk about this later. Johnny walks up and asks what's going on. Don't you have a girlfriend to talk to, Johnny? Marissa is disgusted that Ryan is blowing the chance to be different than the rest of his family, but doesn't know anyone who can make him change his mind. How about Trey, the high-school dropout car thief druggie rapist fugitive? That'd make me think twice about how I wanted to end up, anyway.
Julie's checking out the condo when a realtor walks in, looking for "Miss Morgan." Julie says she's not Miss Morgan, but that she noticed that the door was open and thought she'd take a look at the place by herself. She likes what she sees, so she'll be buying it with the cash she brought with her in her pocketbook. Carrying thousands of dollars around in your pocketbook is really, really dumb, but then, it's not like anyone in that family is a rocket scientist. At least they knew to finish high school, though, Ryan. Realtor explains that Julie's looking at a four-bedroom model, not the two-bedroom "garden" (i.e. basement) unit that's more consistent with Julie's price range. Then 7 'n 7 -- the Miss Morgan the realtor was there to see -- strolls in and innocently asks Julie what she's doing in the place 7 'n 7was hoping to make her "little crash pad" while she did some business in the area. Julie snots that she was actually hoping for a place with a "better view," and leaves. Because her motel room is so much better than a basement condo. 7 'n 7 manages to keep her inner monologue of "Julie's pocketbook is bulky and full -- perhaps there is money in there I can swindle her out of!" silent this time.
