Rock music plays us into the Public Skool Kidz beach party, which will be hosted by Chili from his home on the beach. He has a home on the freaking beach. In Newport. Great job convincing us that those Public Skool Kidz really have things rough with their poverty, there, writers. Chili offers to give Summer a tour of the place, but she calls him a dork and he is silenced. Someone should clue him in that Summer likes dorks. Marissa strokes Johnny's arm and asks him to show her where to put her stuff down. They go off together. Summer asks Chili where Johnny's girlfriend is. He doesn't know or care.
Summer spies on Johnny and Marissa as they go into Chili's bedroom. Marissa puts her bag down and finds a picture of Johnny and Chili from their dorky-little-kid days, which doesn't really make sense if Johnny moved to Newport and met Chili only a few years ago. Or maybe they dressed up as Power Rangers when they were fifteen. Whatever. Embarrassed, Johnny grabs the picture away and hides it behind his back. Marissa giggles flirtatiously and reaches for the picture, putting her hands all over the guy who isn't her boyfriend. Summer looks pained. I guess the Dawn Patrol punch isn't sitting well.
Seth is lying on a pommel horse when his phone rings. He manages to extract it from his pants pocket -- not a small feat when you consider how tight his pants are. Being a hipster is tough sometimes. Summer's on the other end, and she says that Ryan needs to get to Chili's house right now! It's an emergency! Before she can tell Seth the melodramatic nature of it, Taylor Townsend grabs the phone away from him and lectures that cell phones are not allowed in the lock-in. Seth almost strangles Taylor Townsend, but manages to restrain himself and point out that the lock-in hasn't even started yet. Taylor Townsend doesn't care. She walks away with Seth's phone. I just want to know what happened to those Sidekicks everyone was walking around with last week. Ryan asks Seth what's going on, and Seth tells him that there's an emergency at Chili's house on Dune Road. Ryan takes off. Taylor Townsend reminds him that if he doesn't come back by 9, he'll be locked out and in a lot of trouble. Ryan doesn't care, because the day needs saving.
Marissa and Johnny check out Chili's CD collection together. Summer and Chili watch them from afar. Chili asks Summer why she doesn't like him. There are so many reasons -- starting with the fact that he calls himself "Chili" -- but Summer picks the one that's least insulting and says that she's already dating a dork. Chili says that just makes him more hopeful. He pats Summer on the leg, and she laughs. She's about three seconds away from wrestling with him over an embarrassing picture and then indignantly wondering why everyone seems to think she and Chili have something going on while she ditches her real boyfriend every chance she gets.
