We open in the darkness of Seth's bedroom, where he and Ryan sleep. And all you HoYay! people can just call yourselves right back down, because Ryan is on the floor. The floor. From the bed, Seth whispers Ryan's name and asks if he's asleep; when no answer comes, Seth flips on the light and flops over to peer at Ryan, who is squinting at the harsh glare. Seth again asks if he's asleep, and Ryan moans a lack of response. Seth then reaches out to pinch Ryan's nose, causing Ryan to flip himself over jerkily. Undeterred, Seth concludes, "Yeah. I can't sleep either." He rambles on about how although Summer hasn't technically dumped him yet, it's only a matter of time. He wonders whether he should force a confrontation or "continue to be whiny and passive-aggressive until she realizes what a catch I am." I think I'd go with the first choice, but that's just me. Seth says Ryan's name three times with increasing urgency, and asks again whether Ryan is asleep. Seth chooses a different tack: he announces that he'll let Ryan go back to sleep now, since as bad as things are for Seth, they're even worse for Ryan. This finally catches Ryan's attention, as Seth explains that he at least is sleeping in his own bed and not "sleeping here on my floor...not sleeping." Ryan points out that the only reason he can't sleep is because Seth won't shut up. Seth agrees, but adds that it's also because Theresa is in the pool house, to Marissa's dismay. When Ryan insists that Marissa is fine with it, Seth sarcastically agrees -- the same way Ryan would be fine with it if Oliver were sleeping on Marissa's couch. Except those are two entirely different things: battered girl with no place to go versus a penthouse-sheltered, gun-wielding psychopath. And who would want Oliver sleeping on their couch? Next to Oliver, Theresa is...well, Mother Teresa. Ryan says it's cool, and then asks what Seth expects him to do? Kick Theresa out of the house? Seth suggests that Ryan should be at least a little bit curious about when she's leaving. When Ryan again insists that he's not worried, Seth sends him back to "bed...or...the floor." Both boys roll over to sleep, and tinkly music plays as we see a wide-awake Ryan, lying under a very comfy-looking sage green blanket. That blanket makes me sleepy. Ryan suddenly sits up and announces that he should talk to Theresa, to which Seth is all, "Let me come with you." How random and interfering and completely inherited from his snoopy-yet-well-intentioned father. In this scene -- which is supposed to take place in the middle of the night -- neither boy's hair looks the least bit different than it does at any other point in the episode. Why not with the delightfully rumpled? It's such a good look for them both. In any case, they head off together to harass their invited houseguest about when she's leaving.
We cut to the two boys entering the pool house to the sound of a toilet flushing, and I guess people from Chino have no right to privacy at all. Then again, she should count her blessings to have a toilet, and not to have to dig a hole in the ground. But I would not be pleased to emerge from my bathroom in the middle of the night to find my ex-boyfriend and his strange-yet-cute friend hanging out in my room. Theresa looks suitably flustered, as might be expected of someone who thought she was taking a solitary shit but then found out otherwise. She apologizes for not hearing them come in. Because she should obviously be on her toes to greet anyone who might choose to enter, unannounced, at any random time of day or night. Seth pushes the boundaries even more, noticing a brown paper bag (containing toilet paper) on the bed. He announces that if Theresa needs anything, she should let him know, because Kirsten's got lots of toiletries. And I'm so sure Theresa would enjoy going to the same strange-yet-cute friend of her ex-boyfriend to ask him to ask his mother for some tampons or a douche or hemorrhoid cream. The camera lingers on the bag, so we know it must contain the aforementioned hemorrhoid cream, and we're all automatically clued in to expect the standard drama episode in which one of the teen characters struggles with thinking she had a hemorrhoid, only to find out in the last two minutes of the episode that it wasn't a hemorrhoid after all, but just a hemorrhoid scare. Whew! In any case, Theresa thanks him for the offer, but announces that she won't be around much longer, because she can't impose on Seth's parents forever. He's all, "Sure you can. I intend to." So why then, exactly, was he harassing Ryan only moments ago to find out when Theresa was leaving? Theresa adds that she needs to figure some things out, after which she'll call her family. She and Ryan exchange awkward conversation about when they'll see each other next, Ryan incorporating the more awkward fact that whenever that will be, it will also include Marissa. Seth points out that he'll be there too, because "[his] girlfriend is currently dating her father." Ryan cuts him off before Seth can further explain his plight, but Seth assures her that she'll hear all about it tomorrow. Theresa watches them go, and then removes a pregnancy test from the brown bag.
