Chez Fennel. Alicia asks Wallace if he's working that night, and Wallace tells her no, other than giving "the hottest girl at school" a hand with trig. Alicia notes that he needs help with trig. Wallace: "I might give her both hands." At first I thought that that statement was inappropriate in front of his mother and little brother, but since his brother immediately pipes up, "Are you hittin' that?," I have to conclude that I was mistaken. Everyone giggles their way out the door...
...and Wallace gets in his car and drives off. Alicia waves, but freezes when she sees Chicago Guy pass him going the other way in a white SUV. He fixes Alicia with a look and drives on. Alicia gapes us into the opening credits.
Oh, dear, Busy Philipps. I don't know that a great lead-in is going to help.
Veronica is taking pictures of the ostensible boyfriend doing laps on a track. From this distance, he looks like a cross between Scott Speedman and Jason Lee, so there's a serious approach-avoidance issue here even without the Scientology. Julie calls, and Veronica tells her she's got nothing of note to report, so Julie tells her that Colin's had twenty calls from the same number in the past six days: "Don't you think that's odd?" Compared to reacting to an imminent proposal by completely freaking out and losing all perspective, I'd have to say...yes. Veronica agrees that it's worth looking into, and asks for the number in question, but Julie's already sent it to her with a reminder that Colin's got tennis the next day. This seems as good a time as any to ask: when do these two actually spend any time together? Also, what does Rich Julie do with her time that she can't be hanging out a little more with Trust Fund Boy? Has she lied and told him she actually has a job? I don't think this plot bears all that much scrutiny, especially from the standpoint that I don't really know what Colin could see in this barely-hinged woman, but if you assume Julie's kind of psycho, at least her actions make sense. Anyway.
