Aprile Abode. Mr. and Mrs. Tony, Mr. and (the real-life) Mrs. Silvio, Pants, and Rosalie are gathered around the table, laughing and complimenting Rosalie on the food, when Jackie Jr. swings by for another quick thirty seconds of screen-time. The highlight of this installment is Tony telling him to "enjoy [his] youth." Then Little Lord Fuckpants leaves, and we cut to a dinner party of a very different sort. Meadow and Noah are meeting Noah's dad in a restaurant somewhere. Meadow is understandably a bit freaked out about meeting the parents, but Noah assures her that "it'll be nothing compared to meeting your dad," and you've gotta admit, the kid does have a point. They meet Dad at the table, and after a round of introductions, everyone sits down. Dad launches immediately into the name-dropping, mentioning that he negotiated Tim Daly's deal for The Fugitive. I thought we were supposed to believe this guy was a good agent? Noah brags that Daddy always flies first class, with "the personal DVD players" and whatnot, and Meadow seems to be a bit star-struck. When Dad mentions that he's in town to meet with Dick Wolf, Meadow mistakenly believes Dick is a sportscaster. Noah lists off all his shows, and Meadow claims to love them, but let's face it, Dicky hasn't done too well in the recap department, has he? Dad pointedly asks what Meadow's father does. She answers with "waste management," quickly amending that to "environmental clean-up" when he gives her a funny look.
Tracee is topless again, and back dancing at the Bing. Meanwhile, Noah and Meadow have moved on from dinner, and are now alone again, and waiting in line to see Dementia 13. Meadow feels bad for not having invited Caitlin, but Noah is remorseless. So much so, in fact, that his dad actually took out a restraining order against Caitlin when he heard about the C-minus. That seems a little harsh, especially considering he's an RA who's supposed to be helping freshmen. It also seems a little counter-productive, because she's just going to freak out and cry even more when she finds out about it. Noah feels that it's important to "set limits," because "let's face it, she was ruining [their] lives."
In the Bing Back Room, Pants is telling a Custer joke. It's pretty bad, but it's not Gladiator-related, so I'll take it. When he spots Tracee, he tries to say hello, but she tells him off in front of all the boys, and then stomps outside. Gigi is loving every second of this, but Pants is plainly pissed as he tries to play it off. Finally, he gets up to follow her outside.
