Carrie exits school to see Sebastian waiting for her, listening to his sweet new Sony Walkman. He asks her to go out with him the next day. Carrie tells him she will have to check with her dad. Carrie mentions that their Dads know each other. Sebastian, seemingly changes the subject, mentions he is listening to the new “Cars” album and they listen to it together, each taking one head phone. Carrie thinks she and Sebastian have a connection, and knows in her heart there is nothing bad about this boy. Harrrumph. Brenda said the same thing about Dylan.
At home Dad gives Carrie her tampons. Carrie is shocked as she didn’t really expect him to buy those for her- but they were on the shopping list. Dad tells her it’s challenging being a Dad to teenage girls. Carrie tries to get him to change his mind about her dating Sebastian- Dad makes him sound like one of her Dad’s clients! Did we know Dad was a lawyer? And apparently his clients are scumbags. Something has dawned on Carrie- maybe the Kydds are one of her Dad’s shady clients.
The Dorrit enters and asks “Are we EVER eating?? Kids in Ethiopia eat better than me!!”
The kids in that Band Aid video eat better than I do!!!
I love when The Dorrit brings the drama. Dad, proud of himself, pulls from the grocery bags: A Stouffer’s entrée, French bread and a pizza. Voila!! The Dorrit gives him the death stare. “STOUFFER’S FRENCH BREAD PIZZA, DAD!!!!!! One item. Mom kept millions of them around here?!!?!” Yeah Dad, you f*cktard. The Dorrit storms out and finds herself at a pet store. I know The Dorrit is hungry, but must she really resort to hunting and killing her prey??? Oh wait, she’s just stealing a hamster. Oh thank God. I thought this show was going to the dark side.
Later that night, Carrie creeps around her house with a flash light, going into her Dad’s locked file cabinet to look for a file with the name “Kydd” on it.
Great job Nancy Drew! Better go tell The Hardy Boys!!
Ok, I’m going to stop right here. Dad is a lawyer who keeps his files at home?!?!!? Come on. Ok, maybe he works from home, but it’s unlikely for the 80’s. He’s not an Avon Lady for cripessake.
What do you know??? Carrie finds a file with the name “Kydd” on it, and of course, reads it, and it says something about “intimate relations” with an art history teacher. Didn’t Brandon have intimate relations with Kelly’s Women Studies teacher???
At school Carrie tells Mouse and Mags about Sebastian. And why not? It’s not like the information was in a locked file cabinet… why shouldn’t she start spreading the word??? Carrie argues that he made a mistake- besides wasn’t Mouse taking Seth Glassman back? Oh Seth didn’t return a few phone calls, he didn’t bone his teacher. Mouse doesn’t know if she is going to take him back… but they ARE meeting up in NYC, but only as friends. Carrie tells her she should dress like it’s a date: cute and sexy. That’s code for: lose the cardigan.
Lose the cardigan, Shlubbzy
