Puck and Rachel play pool with Mo and pretend that they don't hate each other. It's very annoying. It's almost as annoying as Cory interrupting us here to explain what Puck's "really like" and that he has a hard time communicating with girls. Like I need Cory to understand "the Puck." Puck and Rachel fight and flirt, flirt and fight. Rachel says that she's fairly intelligent and attractive, so she expects to be treated well by a guy. Puck tells us that he can't say anything nice about Rachel. Several shots of Puck and Rachel looking unhappy as they play pool until we go to commercial.
Cory's car is fucked. Mohammed and "Rachel's friend" borrowed it to go to Berkeley. Cory drove it for the first time since they borrowed it, and the clutch is completely shot. Pam explains that Cory can't even drive her car up the hill now, and that she's completely bummed out about it. Puck, however, doesn't want to hear one second of Cory's whining. Point Two for Puck, by the way. He says that she lent the car out in the first place, so it's her fault that the car is fucked and she has no reason to whine around and moan because if she didn't want her car broken, she shouldn't have lent it out. Cory says that she should be able to be upset. She's all warbling to us that she thinks that if someone borrows something they should return it in the same condition it was borrowed. She's upset that Puck isn't listening to her. Pam has to explain this subplot to us because she never has one of her own. As Cory tries to bitch to Pam about the car, Puck tells her to shut up about it and that she can't keep whining. Pam tells us that she wanted to hear Cory's concerns, but now Cory is yelling at Puck. I'm so glad we aren't wearing those flowery dresses anymore. All buttoned up the front and tied in the back like flower children. "Puck is a terrible listener," Pam understates. Cory whines and whines and whines. Absolutely no resolution to this subplot, by the way, I guess because Mo probably paid for the damage as soon as he found out what was wrong with the car. Besides, this episode can only be about Puck.
Pedro finds it impossible to deal with Puck, he explains to us again for the zillionth time. Now everyone is upset that Puck uses the phone too much. He gets lots of calls, and if someone else gets a call while he's on the phone, he doesn't take a message. They have a house meeting about it, and Puck basically says that if another call comes in while he's on the phone, he's not about to get up to find a pen and paper, so he just tells the person on the phone to try back in two hours. Pedro says that he always takes messages for Puck if he gets a phone call. Puck says that it's Pedro's fault, then. He doesn't have to take a phone message if he doesn't want to. I say Puck loses phone privileges if he can't obey house rules for decent phone usage. Wow, I sounded like Pedro just then, didn't I? Rachel sits so close to Puck that he eventually gets up and leaves while everyone is still bitching at him. Pedro is speaking about himself in the third person anyway, so I probably would have left at that point as well. Point Three for Puck. They all keep bitching after Puck leaves, and Puck tells us that he doesn't care about the phone.
