Seth pulls a bobby pin from Mouse’s hairdo and they try to pick the lock on the office door. Of course they are caught by the Janitor. The janitor summons the teacher and Mouse tries to explain herself, regardless, Mouse was late, and now must accept the B+.
Tonight is also the night of The Nutcracker! Dad and The Dorrit arrive at The Nutcracker, and The Dorrit isn’t dressed like Robert Smith- she is wearing her Mom’s green dress. The Dorrit wants to know if Dad brought food with him because Mom always did… so they didn’t waste money on concessions. No, Dad didn’t bring food.
Duh, I have liked Jordan Almonds since this morning!!
He offers to buy her Jordan Almonds- The Dorrit’s favorite. Yep, you guessed it, not anymore. Dad offers to buy The Dorrit a program- nope, also a waste of money. Jeeze, who knew Mom was such a cheap mofo???
The Nutcracker starts and suddenly this crazy look overtakes The Dorrit’s face… oh, it’s a smile.
Who are you and what have you done with The Dorrit?
The Dorrit is in her glory- who knew??? At intermission The Dorrit looks over and Dad is fast asleep.
Wake up, shithead
The Dorrit is pissed- she KNEW he wouldn’t get it. Dad explains that he is trying. He worked for 3 nights straight so he could take THIS night off to take The Dorrit to the Nutcracker. The Dorrit is upset that she can’t talk to him. Carrie has Dad and The Dorrit always had Mom, but not anymore, she feels alone. Shit. I hate then The Dorrit has feelings. Dad tells The Dorrit she isn’t alone, but The Dorrit says “I’m cool with being alone.” and stomps away. After intermission, Dad joins The Dorrit at her seat and brings her a box of Jordan Almonds- which The Dorrit proceeds to crunch joyously, much to the dismay of her fellow ballet goers.
Back at the dance, Mags is tearing up the dance floor solo… until a slow song comes on and that makes her sad.
Dancin’ with myself…
She’s sad her gay boyfriend has the chicken pox. She decides to leave the dance, and she runs into her f*ckbuddy Cop in the parking lot. The Cop wants to know where Walt is, and Mags explains he is sick. The Cop hits on her and they kiss and proceed to get into the back seat together- like right at the curb. Um… shouldn’t they, at least, attempt to go somewhere secluded.
Meanwhile, George gives Carrie some spiked punch and Sebastian and Super Vixen Donna La Donna show up.
