thetruth.com has made a big point about their cool teen telling their forum posters off. Cool teen takes this commercial break to tell 420Agirl that tobacco companies should be blamed for teen smoking since most people start smoking in their teens. Um, truth? Yeah. Look, if her name is "420Agirl," she's not smoking cigarettes. Do some damn research. Hire a kid on the staff, okay?
Leading the battle of the bland plotlines, Bella walks up to Scout who is sweeping in front of the Friendly's. "Everything under control, Cowboy?" she asks for no reason. They just sit down, because it's not like there is anyone in this town who really needs food or gas. Scout says that he and Will "went to war over that whole Sean thing." Bella says, "Yeah, well, you aren't the only casualty. Will and Sean haven't talked since the party." Because we all care. "And that's my fault because...?" Scout says. I hate that. Bella says it's not his fault, she's just sayin'. Bella gets all serious and close-up-y to say that he's got to understand "[they] spend [their] entire lives sharing this town with guys like [him]." All seven of them. "You come from a completely different world. And now all of a sudden, Will's thrown into that world. I'm sure he feels like he doesn't fit in either right now. But I know he's trying, Scout." She tells him to cut him some slack: "Try to understand how it must be for Sean to sit on the other side of the fence and watch all of this." Scout says that Sean likes Bella. She laughs. He says he has a bird's-eye view of what's going on. She laughs that he said "bird's-eye view." So do I. I know that whole big-brother/little-sister protection thing, but this is gross. "Maybe I should think about building a spy-proof wall," she smiles. What the hell? Smirk. Eyebrow. Smirk. Blink. Blink. Lip chew.
The other Rawley boys are gathered around the television, cheering at some event. Terri walks over to Verve and asks what's going on. He tries to explain that it's wrestling, but you can tell that neither of them is even slightly interested in the "sport." Terri says, "So, thanks again for last night." The other boys all look over and get grossed out by the gay-wad vibes coming over from them. Terri says she's about to take her bike out and wants to know if Verve wants to come along for a ride. Verve feels that everyone must know he's gay so he gets all cool and doesn't answer her question, and keeps staring at the television. Terri gets upset and gets up to leave. She walks in front of the television, which should have exposed her as a girl right then and there, and stops to look at Verve. She leaves the room upset. Those are some of the worst extras I've ever seen. They just kept putting fists in the air and shouting, "Yeah! Woo!" all quietly.
