Will rides his bike down the sidewalk as the town whore lights her cigarette and stops him. "Hey, handsome!" Oh, wait. That's Will's mom. My bad. But come on. A blue strappy-top and a denim miniskirt? And black flats. She asks how things are going at Rawley. Fine. She asks when Will is going to tell Sean that he's going to Rawley now. Will says that it's only a summer session and that he might be back in the fall. Extreme close-up as Will says he doesn't know how long it's going to be "before [he] totally screw[s] this up, or something." Extreme close up on Mamawhore as she says, "You're not gonna screw it up." He starts to say something but she stops him and says she gets it. She says she's got to go back and make people pretty. She works in a salon, see. "Who's that, the town whore?" Ray asks, having just woken up. Mamawhore moves some hair out of Will's face and says, "I'll see you later, baby." "Ew," Ray says, just before passing out again.
Terri comes bounding down some steps and finds Verve sitting in some grass surrounded by, like, six dogs. She tells him that her bike is gone. She says that she left it where he told her to and she wants to know who took it. Verve says the groundskeeper probably confiscated it. She asks what she should do. "What are you asking me for?" he snots. She's all, "Gah, sorry," and gets up to leave, but he pulls her down by the hand (and lingers there) and says that he can think of something. Cue the Steel Drums of Non-Gay Love. He tells her to meet him under the staircase the next night after dinner. They look at each other for a while and smile, as if they had just made plans to have sex. Terri gets up, wanders through the dogs and leaves. Where are all of the dogs coming from? Verve looks around and sighs.
Overhead shot of the lake. Rowing. Close-up on rowing. The boys are rowing. Yes, boys! Row! Row harder! Row stronger! Take off your shirts! Scout is the only one allowed to wear a tank top and not the crew uniform, since his muscles are fully developed. I wake Rose up so she doesn't miss the good parts here. She thanks me. We watch three minutes of uninterrupted rowing.
