At the pier, Marissa and Ryan trudge along; Marissa holds a Balboa Bar, which she doesn't eat, but just waves around. She can't believe Luke and Lady Heather are still seeing each other, and Ryan reveals that he talked to Luke and they're not. She snits at the fact that Ryan and Seth are still hanging out with Luke, and Ryan explains that Luke wants to apologize to her. She examines the ice cream bar, all, "What is this block of cold something on a stick?" Clearly, she didn't buy it to eat, but to have something handy to hide behind the next time she runs away. Marissa whines that while she can forgive Luke for assaulting our eyes with cheating on her, she can't forgive him for doing Lady Heather. She explains that she'd rather keep that part of her life separate from "this part of my life," and I'm not really sure where she's going with this statement unless it's a roundabout way of telling Ryan to butt out? He's using less hair product in this episode, and it's much more appealing. He asks, "You know what we haven't done in a while?" And she's all, "Talked about me and how beautiful and great and smart and popular I am, and how the fact that I talk like my mouth is full of sixty-five and a half marshmallow Peeps doesn't matter because I'm so very beautiful and great and smart and popular?" Actually, she doesn't say that, but we all know she's thinking it. Instead, they put forehead to forehead, nose to nose, hips to hips, and finally lips to lips. The camera pans back to show the abandoned ice cream bar lying on the pier.
Back in The Non-Beautiful Blue Bachelor Pad, we see that Summer has recruited Seth to help fix up Marissa's bedroom, except he misunderstands her intention and announces that while he's "all for getting it on in exotic locales," he's not sure about using Summer's best friend's bedroom. He comments on the disheveled state of the room, claiming to get, "like, a garage sale vibe" from it. Summer stiffly announces that "your external life influences your internal life," which she read in Elle Décor. She suggests that this may be the reason for Marissa's depression, while Seth asks whether "a little feng shui" will really help Marissa forget that her mother fucked her ex-boyfriend. Seth starts to comment on the sweetness but impossibility of Summer's plan, then stops to note that if they put a mirror on the opposing wall, it would "open up the energy flow in this room." Summer announces that they should go to the hardware store, and Seth's all, "Whoa. Whoa, whoa. The hardware store with like the bolts and the grouting and the skill saws?" Summer juxtaposes Seth's dislike of hardware stores and crying in sad movies, then jokes, "The next thing you're gonna tell me [is] you walk in on Ryan changing!" It's the first of several such jokes that fall flat in this episode. Seth scoffs that Summer's being crazy, and then suggests a trip to the hardware store. The lesson, ladies? Appeal to a man's homophobia and get your way!
