Puck needles Cory about calling Geoff because he left her his number, and she decides to invite him to go hiking with her. They go hiking. Cory picks a ladybug off of her leg. Geoff calls it a ladybird. What a scintillating discussion of cultural differences. Later, Geoff hears a bird squawking and tells it to "shut up!" and throws a rock at it.. That's pretty much a "game over." Oh, the drama. Back at the house, Cory is telling Pam about her date, and she's trying pretty hard to talk herself into liking Geoff. Pam sets her straight, and then cracks me up with her interview comment of, "When Cory and I talk, I listen to what's going on with Cory. A lot."
Pam tells us that she's invented her own rotation and that she's working with the local homeless. So we get a whole montage of Pam in a van ministering to San Francisco's needy. It's sad that someone like Pam, who has definite goals and responsibilities, wouldn't make it onto the show nowadays since she wouldn't be able to give up her life to participate in the forced march-slash-train wreck, I mean "job," that the producers concoct every year.
Dudd and Puck are putting up flyers about the lost dog and asking people in the neighborhood. Someone directs them to a flyer about a block away. They go to Pizza Love to call the owners. At the pizza joint, Dudd and Puck are talking and Puck is saying that he wants a reward. Dudd suggests pizza, but Puck says, "Screw the pizza, Judd. I want fifty bucks." Oh, that's a great attitude. Puck stole someone's dog, wasn't even going to give her back, and now he wants the owners to pay him for it? Classic. Beth and Chris (the dog's owners) run in soaking wet. Beth is so relieved to have found her dog that she actually kisses both Dudd and Puck. Ew.
Back at home, Puck is sad and looking at pictures of the departed "Girrl." In a confessional, he says, "But I'll get another dog. Dogs are dogs. People are people. There's a big difference there." Thanks for pointing that out, Captain Obvious.
Next week, get your hankies ready, because Pedro's T-cell count is low.
