Commercial. Gracias, Saint Clares.
I call all of my friends to tell them that if they want to continue being my friends, then they won't tell me if they go out and see Autumn in New York. Jeff tells me that I have no choice and that he's going to send me a recap of the film. He taxes me so, that Jeff.
Sprite commercial. Pretty sneaky, sis.
Scout and Will are standing on the edge of a pier. Why do I always have to write sentences like that? Someone forgot to put the platform shoes on Scout. Scout's asking what happened to Liv Tynot. Will says that they are taking things slowly and that he doesn't want to "push it." "Yeah, I think I made that same mistake with Bella," Scout whines. No, see, honey, you can't have her. You can't have her. She's your sister. Your mistake was kissing her. Scout's whites aren't as white as Will's. Scout knows that Bella just needs to meet his dad and then they'll be okay. He sure knows what's best for everyone, doesn't he? There are "jokes" about "800-pound gorillas" and "the whole zoo," but you know how it goes -- Scout feels this pressure and Will reminds Scout that he's the one with real problems. Scout says that Bella's worried that his dad won't like her. She didn't say that. Will reminds Scout solemnly that "[i]t's one thing to be liked. It's another thing to be accepted." They leave to "get something to eat." What's with the pier in that scene? They were the only ones out there just standing with their arms crossed on the edge. They weren't even facing the water. It's like they kept trying to do the scene somewhere else but it kept raining, so they just threw it up at the edge of the pier.
Terri is standing in front of Rawley Girls wearing a different pink dress. MamaTerri parks in front of a big ol' "No Parking" sign so we know that she's a busy jet-setter who doesn't have time for small-town rules. She's on her cell phone talking about a "script" as she hugs Terri with one arm. She tells the person that she has to go because there's "someone more important." She hangs up and the phone instantly rings. She barks to the caller that she's not too old to play Dorothy, because Diana Ross was "like, fifty-two when they made The Wiz." Nice. MamaTerri hangs up the phone and whines, "They're going with Tiffani-Amber Thiessen." Terri winces for all of us. ["Probably because MamaTerri should know that she's just 'Tiffani Thiessen' now." -- Sars] MamaTerri comments that Terri's hair is short. "Yeah...well...it was...getting in the way...of...my life." Fifteen seconds, wasted. MamaTerri says it's "fresh" and hugs Terri again, saying how much she's missed her. I really don't see what Terri's problem with MamaTerri is. I like her. Even though she is the poor-man's Annette Bening (tm ophy). MamaTerri says she missed, "This. Missed us." Terri smiles and agrees. MamaTerri asks to go inside and says she'd love to meet Terri's roommate. Verve walks up and saves the day. He welcomes MamaTerri and introduces himself. He says that he was sent to personally escort "[her] and Jake..." "--queline," Terri finishes. "Jacqueline." Nice move there, Verve. MamaTerri thanks Verve, grabs his arm and asks to be escorted to the ladies room. "I need some lips...and eyes." I do, too, as I've just ripped mine off my face. Pick me up a couple of pairs, wouldja, MamaTerri? She asks Verve to tell her about the student body. She then asks him to call her "Monica." Terri watches them in amazement as they walk off.
