I'm amazed Nancy was able to drive home considering how utterly freaked she is. She pulls into her driveway and gets out of the car when a car passing by backfires and she drops to the ground like it's an air raid. As she does, we're able to see the improvements to the car that Conrad had mentioned earlier: shiny, spinning rims. Time-Lapse Nancy then makes it to her bathroom, crawls into her tub, and passes out. Some time later, Andy walks into the bathroom unannounced (oh, Andy) with some papers Doug wants her to sign so they can officially acquire the space for the bakery. Andy's all enthusiastic about it, envisioning a Botwin and Botwin partnership, while Nancy doesn't want to be bothered. Andy says she has to act now, before the space gets sold to a vitamin store. "This town doesn't need more ginko biloba," says Andy, "it needs pot brownies!" Nancy tells him that her eyes were opened today about how "the downside of this business is death," and she's thinking about enrolling in dental hygiene school so her sons don't become orphans. Andy further strengthens her resolve not to die when he says that he'd raise Silas and Shane as his own. Nancy tells him the business is hers, and she doesn't want him involved in it. Andy begs, saying he was born to cook pot brownies, but Nancy harshly tells him if he wants to sell drugs, do it on his own. Andy, actually hurt, which I heretofore didn't think was possible, sulks out.
Agrestic High. Megan texts Silas to join her in the library, but he blows her off thusly: "i cant b tied down." Megan's like, "I'm getting dumped by an Avril song?"
Elsewhere, the head Gossipy Bitch, Maggie, is running the PTA meeting when Celia wanders in, wearing her Pink Ladies jacket and not so much looking for the condescending sympathy everyone's throwing her way. She lights up a cig and gets the usual ration of shit re: secondhand smoke. She also tells Maggie she didn't bake the muffins for the bake sale, because she didn't feel like it. "None of us feels like baking," snots Maggie. "But we do it. For the kids." Celia pulls a wad of cash from her jacket and tells them to keep the change. Then she pulls out a white pellet, which she says is the "last pharmaceutical Quaalude on Earth," and leaves with a hilarious behind-the-back finger wave (Elizabeth Perkins's physicality in this role is sublime), which nearly causes Pam to follow her out.
