Silas is babysitting Rad for some reason, and Rad tells him all about how very into each other Lisa and her ex-husband are. Meanwhile, the goth girls are trying to figure out some kind of scary threesome using diagrams from the internet. Simone and Harmony babble about how they're doing a science project with Shane involving volcanoes and wind. Nancy, confronted by the piercings and lies of the goth girls, drops to a seat on the stairs and then makes no sense whatsoever for a bit. Rad informs Nancy that Lisa thinks she dresses like a prostitute. She asks Silas to make sure Shane and his goth girl "lab assistants" don't destroy the house. "You mean do your job?" he asks, and she grins. "Only better." She goes upstairs and the threesome talks about what their moms are up to: one's doing a self-improvement pyramid scheme, one's taking a sound bath in a biospheric dome, and of course Nancy's fucking the drug kingpin/Mayor of TJ. They're all equal ways of dealing.
Doug's pissing against the Minuteman wall when El Andy calls, putting Mermex on the phone. Yay! Yay for the power of El Andy! Doug and Mermex realize that they have nothing to say to each other, and Doug asks her to hand the phone back; he's touched to learn that she kept his flip-flop.
Silas is cell-stalking Lisa later that night, while upstairs the goths are arranging to film their sexual escapades with Strange Botwin. Shane realizes that he's in over his head and asks Silas what to do. Silas is none too interested until he realizes that Shane is totally Shane-ing out about it, then reminds him he doesn't have to go through with it, but if he does, not to bring shame on the family. Rad -- not actually sleeping on the couch -- bets Silas five bucks Shane "pusses out."
Esteban and Nancy make out. The migraine doesn't hit until he starts to growl, like a lion. She swears she's not trying to get out of sex -- which, he assures her, nobody ever does -- and he tries to take care of her. He tells her Excedrin is not the answer because this is coming from stress. "I'll take care of you every step of the way," he says, offering to take her to see some "unconventional" medical personnel. She swears she trusts him. I miss U-Turn.
