Theresa is telling some long-winded story about her mother's church and a stained-glass window featuring a saint (named Theresa, of course) whose heart is being pierced by the arrow of an angel. For some reason, Theresa seems to think this is a happy picture. As she begins talking about her First Communion, white dress, and gloves, we cut back to ChinoCam. We cut back and forth between Ryan pensively looking out the window, and Theresa telling Marissa that she used to hope one day someone would pierce her heart, and that she'd walk down the aisle in a real white dress and feel happy. She knows it sounds lame, because life isn't like that; you can't get caught up in wishing for something that won't happen -- you have to hang onto the next best thing. With that, Theresa announces that she should go call Eddie, and Marissa heads back to school.
Lady Heather -- clad in head-to-toe pink golf attire -- slips into the hotel room next door seconds before Marissa and Theresa emerge and say their awkward parting words. It's not relevant now, but you can bet it will be later.
Harbor School. A line of boys wait in the kissing both line, at the front of which Summer bestows peppy kisses for money. Seth shoves his way to the front of the line, handing a long-haired guy a "full refund." He turns to the crowd, thanks them, and announces that the "show's over." When Brad asks if "this kid's" bothering her, Summer insists that it's fine. She complains that Seth is making a scene, but he doesn't care because he has to talk to her right now! When she says she'll just IM him later, he thinks it over and, with a resolute "Okay," comes to a decision. He tries to scale the booth top, but can't get his leg over it; he groans and pulls over a chair, which he scrambles up. Hee. Anna glances over from the Pac-Man machine. We see that the decorations for this fundraiser are giant, lip-shaped balloons. They're lewd, and look like something that should never, ever be portrayed in the shape of a balloon. Seth stands on the counter and urges Summer to join him, as she covers her face and mutters her dismay. Sweet music plays as Seth tells her he knows she's scared, and she's all, "Yeah. Of you." He plaintively says that he can't believe she'd kiss all these other guys but not him, and declares, "Acknowledge me now or lose me forever." Brad's like, "Wait, you're dating this emo geek?" As the watching crowd giggles, Seth responds for Summer that she is dating him, and then turns, extends his arms, and announces, "Yeah. That's right. Um. I'm a big dork and I listen to emo. And I'm dating her." Summer softly asks why he's doing this, and he responds that he likes her this much, and if she doesn't feel the same, then "someone's gonna have to give me a hand down, because it's really high up here and I could fall and that would be embarrassing...more embarrassing." Hee. Summer looks torn as Seth extends a hopeful hand to her. Finally, she smiles and takes his hand, joining him on top of the table. The various jocks stare and look confused, while multitudes of cheerleaders swoon. Summer can't believe she's doing this, and Seth tells her it's all over but the public makeout session. A quick shot of Anna reveals that she looks happy, proud, and completely crestfallen. Aw. Summer and Seth make out, breaking long enough for Summer to tell Seth he owes her ten bucks. He doesn't mind, since it's for "a worthy cause." Aw. That boy just earned his trench coat. (And by that I mean in the Lloyd Dobler sense, not in any creepy flasher sense.)
