Is it just me, or is everyone on this show taking crazy pills? I can honestly count the number of teenagers who aren’t hypocrites on one hand. First we see pregnant Miranda Cosgrove (the Nickelodeon star, no relation to Mad Men’s Ken C.) tell Grace to bug off, then wait on Amy and whine to her that she’s her only friend. She then ditches Amy for Toby, who’s counting the days until her baby drops so he can get her into bed. Toby is obviously new at Grant, which is clear when he asks to have a private conversation with Madison, a well-known blabber mouth.
Amy sticks her skeleton fingers into Preggers’ (sorry, I still can’t remember her name) personal life, telling her how important it is that her baby’s fate is her choice. However, though she gets excited on the phone with Margaret over elephants, she previously claimed she didn’t want to have a wedding because she doesn’t think her mom deserves the choice to bring a same-sex date to a family function. Every week she gets one step closer to asking Grace to pray her gay away.
Grace is just as bad, showing up at school sporting an outfit that resembles the uniforms that the private school students still inexplicably wear, then she all but goes to second base with Jack in exchange for painting her bathroom.
Ricky was an unexpected two-face this week. At the beginning of the episode, he told Amy he wanted to give the money back to Mimsy, but then he insists that they put her gift in the bank account after discovering that Amy didn’t actually lose her purse.
I find it interesting not only that George paid for Amy and Ricky to elope, but that Madison and Lauren think they can get the money to throw them a wedding. I also wonder if Madison dyed her hair blonde because she saw that Jack was falling for Grace again. Speaking of a new look, Adrian has been dressing much less like a skank now that she’s in college and actually seems to sincerely care about Ricky’s relationship with Amy. She did turn over this new leave almost overnight though, so I think she’ll prove me wrong eventually.
What did you think of last night’s episode?
