So now that Sharon can't practice her lines with Kat, Jay offers to fill in. "It's a very female scene," warns Kat. "You have to be weeping." Jay asks Kat whether he may read it. Kat hands him the book, and he starts cracking up. Soon he is really getting into pretending to be weeping over the fact that his character lost her virginity. Lars walks past and gives Jay a strange look. But you see, it's not all fun and games. Kat explains in an interview that she can't afford to get a bad grade. She literally can't afford it, financially. Then we see shots of her walking the streets of London, a serious expression on her face, intercut with shots of her biting down on pencils while sitting at her computer. She enters her drama class and announces that she's doing a scene from No Exit. Okay, for some reason, there is literally a huge cloud of dry ice on stage as Kat goes through her monologue for her drama class. Anyway, not only is Kat's reading of this piece pretty sucky, but she also flubs her lines and stands around on stage for what seems to be several minutes with her head in her hands, trying to remember her next line. In a confessional, Kat explains that if she lost her scholarship, she could end up back in Washington with no job skills. "So I get frustrated at times," says Kat, while we see a shot of her getting frustrated on stage. Her teacher tells her to take a deep breath and relax. Once again, since when does anyone stress out over a drama class? Especially over a drama class taught at a barely accredited English school that probably goes on your record as pass/fail to begin with? Kat starts the monologue again, but flubs her line again. Back at Attention Deficit Manor, Kat gulps down some hot chocolate and bitterly explains to Neil that her drama teacher told her she was "awkward and clumsy as well as large" and that she failed to "occupy a space with any presence." Neil chuckles. He's probably thinking, "I'd like to occupy her space, heh heh."
