Theresa slings hash at The Only Bakery in Orange County. Okay, so in actuality she's serving coffee, but she's from Chino, so although I don't even know what "hash" is, I know she should be slinging it. She apologizes to the table for having to wait, and a tank-top wearing, semi-mulleted woman stares at her rudely. They let people with mullets into Newport? Kirsten shows up, wanting to talk with Theresa. Theresa explains that the bakery's understaffed today, and then snits over a bad tip, joking that she'll put it toward the baby's college tuition. Or perhaps toward her own G.E.D., since she no longer appears to be in school, even though she's Ryan's age. Theresa has very good enunciation for someone with a tenth-grade education. I'm sure the elocution lessons are big in Chino. Kirsten insists that she's there if Theresa wants to talk, but their conversation is interrupted by a porn star who needs help with the register. She may play a bakery worker on The O.C. right now, but she'll be a porn star soon enough. She's just got that look. (Again, Britney, I'm looking at you.) Theresa finger-picks at the register. She's supposed to be the expert? I could do that faster with my feet.
At The Newport Group, we learn that Caleb's black eye is much more colorful than Theresa's was. We haven't had a rainbow shirt in a while, but Caleb would match one quite nicely. He shuffles paper before lowering his head into his hands. Sandy happens in and proclaims, "Now there's a portrait of a man headed to the altar!" Caleb asks "what the hell" Sandy wants, and Sandy explains that he's actually there about what Kirsten wants: peace among the men she loves. Why not just ask for peace on earth while she's at it, since both are about as likely to actually happen? Caleb suggests that Sandy is asking the wrong groom, and then orders him to get the apology over with. Sandy grumbles that Caleb has no idea what it took to get Sandy there, and considering that we just saw the beginnings of Kirsten's negotiation tactics, I'm not sure Caleb would really want to know. When Sandy announces that he's only there because of Kirsten, Caleb snits that it's "always 'cause of Kirsten." He asks if Sandy "railroaded" his business dinner with Robert Campbell because of Kirsten, to which Sandy is all, "That one was for you!" Caleb asks what Sandy will do when he's not around anymore to make Sandy feel superior, and by now, Sandy should know that these types of veiled hints don't end anywhere good: impending death or jail time, evidently. Caleb continues that he is indeed going somewhere -- like San Quentin.
