...we're in the parking lot, where Jackie is walking, now firmly on Neptune's "Jeers!" list thanks to Lamb's arrest of her dad. Dick, in particular, makes a snide comment about how Jackie's dad killed his classmates, but given the have-nots that were on the bus, he's probably just annoyed that his wedgie pool got smaller. Cora, Jackie's friend, catches her and sympathetically asks how she is. Jackie wonders if all the attention counts as her fifteen minutes of fame: "And if so, what does the child of an alleged murderer wear to Winter Carnival?" Well, I'd tell her to ask Logan, but I've seen this episode, and you really don't want to be taking fashion advice from him at the moment. Cora says that Jackie doesn't have to go, but Jackie reminds her that they volunteered in French Club. Madison, overhearing that last, stalks up and tells Jackie she can't go: "Even you're not that tacky." There's something derogatory in that sentence, for sure, but having seen Madison's sign-making and dentist-tripping skills, I'm just not sure which way the insult is blowing. Jackie: "School carnival? Me, you, and the Shake Shack doin' a little 'You're The One That I Want'? I am so there." The fact that Madison's wearing a pink jacket is what makes it art. Although I'm thinking "Beauty School Dropout" might prove to be even more appropriate for her. Madison says that Jackie's being there will ruin everything, and Jackie, with a tinge of sadness, says that's her plan. Aw, Jackie, you're starting to evoke sympathy from the posters. Might be a good time to go spit on Jane Austen's grave.
