Parking lot. Andy's van is a-rocking in the handicapped parking space, while a physcally challenged driver behind them honks irritably.
Motel. Celia's on top of Doug, doing her part, but not very excitedly, as she drones on about her problems with Dean, saying that they're only together for the kids. Doug suggests that she turn the TV on to help distract her from her troubles, and she agrees, putting on a telenovela. The angry fight scene between attractive young people seems to help get her back on track, but then it cuts to commercials -- Isabelle's Huskeroos spot, dubbed into Spanish. Hee. Celia wilts, but Doug suggests the Food Network. Really, Bobby Flay's going to help her get her hard-on back? Celia huskily says she has tapes in her car. "Porno?" asks Doug excitedly. "Better," promises Celia. Clone High episodes that never aired in the U.S.?
Nancy's. The lady of the house is promising Gretchen's mom or dad that they'll have Gretchen home early, and that she's a great kid. Silas lets himself in the back door, surprised to see Peter there. Nancy has a wine glass in hand and sounds like she's already somewhat lubricated as she asks Silas what he's doing there. Silas quizzically says he thought dinner was at 5:30, and Nancy says it was supposed to be, but that Andy didn't show up to make it, so Nancy and Peter are making it instead. Silas asks Nancy, "What's with the outfit?" She shrugs that it's just an outfit, and from what we can see, it doesn't look any different than the floaty tie-backed affairs we normally see Nancy in. Anyway, Peter and Nancy try to involve him in making dinner. Silas decides to pass, so if he finds the rice underseasoned, it's no one's fault but his own.
Outside, Gretchen and Shane are having a walk through the neighbourhood, Shane explaining that Peter is Nancy's boyfriend. Gretchen's mom has a boyfriend, too; Gretchen's parents are separated. Shane asks what it's like to see his dad only on weekends, and she says it's okay; he mostly just apologizes. Shane says "that's cool," probably wishing he had a sad weekend dad than a dead one. Gretchen steps on a crack; Shane catches her, and her punishment is to recite the alphabet backwards. She easily starts rhyming it off, Shane looking after her in rapt wonderment.
