Jimmy the Quitter tells Julie that he's found a list of good schools for Marissa in the area. Personally, I think it would work out best for everyone if they just sent her away somewhere, never to be seen again, like they did with their other daughter. Julie says that the list is unnecessary: she's planning just to give Harbor a lot of money to buy Marissa back in. Won't she have to pay off every single parent who signed the petition as well? They're the reason the school wanted to expel Marissa in the first place. Jimmy doesn't think this will work, especially since they don't even have money to pay for giant martinis, let alone for the new pool and adjoining cabanas Marissa's unexpulsion will require. Plus, Jimmy was hoping to use Caleb's money, whenever they actually get it, for his own self. "This is our daughter we're talking about," Julie remembers, and Jimmy remembers it too and is all about giving up the money for her until Julie tells him to give the school his own money to tide them over until Caleb's money comes through. Jimmy ridiculously hopes against hope that they'll only need a few thousand dollars. Julie says it's more like a few hundred thousand.
Taylor assumes the podium at the Social Committee meeting, absolutely thrilled that it's finally hers now that Marissa is gone, gone, gone! She asks the committee to observe a hilarious moment of silence for Marissa, which they all do with the fake solemnity it requires. "That felt really good," Taylor says. Oh, Taylor, you hilarious vixen! Summer walks up and tells Taylor to hold her horses with the Social Committee Chair-assuming, since Summer would like to "try out" for the position herself. Taylor laughs at this and points out that Summer doesn't have experience planning carnivals or with any extracurricular activities at all (shopping doesn't count, nor, apparently, do comic books), and Summer protests that Taylor isn't exactly qualified, either. This gives Taylor the perfect opportunity to explain that, yes, actually, she does, having been the person actually running the Social Committee while figurehead leader Marissa was off skipping school and flirting with lesbianism. Taylor gets increasingly agitated, and asks Summer if she has any idea what it's like to have "all of the responsibility and none of the power." And so Taylor's reign as Social Committee Chair shall be known as the era of Taylor the Terrible.
7 'n 7 pulls up to her father's "cabin," which Kirsten pronounces "charming," and which is bigger than the house I grew up in, as well as all the houses on that block combined. Of course, it's still just a wee fraction of the size of the palatial SURIAK, which is why I still don't understand why anyone would voluntarily leave it. The ladies enter the mansion-cabin, and 7 'n 7 gives Kirsten a quick tour of the place. Kirsten says that it's a beautiful home, but she looks sad. 7 'n 7 asks if she's thinking about Sandy. Kirsten says she let him down. 7 'n 7 says Kirsten should invite him over for dinner, then. She'd love to meet the so-called "perfect husband." Way to invite yourself to a romantic dinner shared by a couple who haven't seen very much of each other in the last few months, there, 7.
