Frank takes a jog past the Cohen house and sees Ryan in the driveway. Frank says he likes to jog when he has things on his mind, inviting Ryan to ask him what those things are. Frank says Kaitlin hates him, and he thought Ryan might have some advice on how to change her mind, seeing as Ryan has "some experience with the Cooper women." Wow. So, Ryan's on his way to his new girlfriend's birthday and you're going to invoke the hallowed name of Marissa, Frank? Just to suit your selfish ends? Ass. I hope the earth swallows him up in that earthquake. Where is it, anyway? Ryan tells Frank to be patient and Kaitlin will come around. Frank notices the present in Ryan's hand and asks what it is. Ryan tells him it's French love poems and Frank calls him a "romantic."
Summer tells Taylor that the night will go great and that her plan will work once Ryan gives her the romantic present. If I hear the word "romantic" again, I'm going to call up Mrs. Spitz and do tequila shots. Taylor wonders if she should act surprised when she enters the party. Summer points out that it isn't a surprise party. Taylor decides to do it anyway. They stroll into what I'm guessing is The Pav, and Taylor is greeted by all the opening cast members and Frank. Why is he invited? I don't know. Taylor jumps and says this is a great surprise. Sandy's all "I didn't know it was a surprise party!" sounding very disappointed that he didn't get a chance to get in on the surprise party fun and jump out from behind a couch or something. Ryan gives Taylor a kiss on the cheek and not the lips. He goes to get Taylor a drink and I hope it's a non-alcoholic one since they're still supposed to be minors. Julie and Kaitlin hug Taylor. Aw, that's sweet.
A shameful cover of a Pixies' song plays as Seth films Taylor surveying her table of presents. Okay, who's the wiseass that gave Taylor a bike? Sandy looks over at Kirsten, who is, of course, sitting at a table by herself and looking sad. Can't you fake it just once, Kirsten? For Taylor's party? Sandy takes a seat next to Kirsten and says they can move away from Newport. "But this is our home," Kirsten says. Okay then... I guess there's no solution and you'll keep being sad, which is probably what you want. "I just don't think I can," Kirsten moans. The scene cuts away here because even the camera is sick of Kirsten now.
