Cut to the next scene- Carrie spies Sebastian sitting alone on a bench. Carrie sits next to him. They talk briefly, and Sebastian thinks it’s cool Carrie has been through stuff. He tells her that his mom ran off with the Tennis Instructor- jeez that’s so 80’s! Carrie replies “no one is better off without a Mom.”
Carrie has a flashback of sitting on the edge of the pool at the “swim club,” where she and Sebastian are talking about different video games and their various attributes. Sebastian leans in to kiss Carrie and she pushes him into the pool.
Soon enough they are kissing passionately… in the pool. It is Carrie’s first kiss. She’s 16 years old and cute as a button. This is her first kiss. Sheesh, what is she Amish? Crap I better not say THAT too loud with Merlin and Levi lurking around…
So they make out and then Sebastian tells her he won’t see her at the pool anymore, as they are installing a pool at his house. SNAP. Carrie knows she’ll never see him again.
Back to the now, she is about to ask Sebastian out when she sees her Dad… in school! OMIGOD The last time her dad was in school it was to tell her that her mother was dying. Naturally, she faints.
Woe is me…
Upon waking, her dad wants to take her home, and she’s all like “You should have warned me you were coming!!!” Dad was in school to talk to Carrie’s guidance counselor. He thinks Carrie could use a change of scenery. He has, magically, secured her an internship at a law firm in Manhattan. It would be one day per week, naturally for course credit. Carrie thinks the idea is totally tubular.
Ok, this is where this show has gone off the rails a little. What High School JUNIOR gets an internship at a law firm in NYC, sight unseen, and it doesn’t seem like the Dad works there. And don’t say people from Connecticut because I grew up and live in Connecticut and it doesn’t happen. I’m sorry, it just doesn’t!!!
Back to the Chronicles of The Dorrit… Carrie comes in and DEMANDS her mother’s purse. She needs it for her internship. Dorrit, of course, ignores her. She’s listening to J Giels Band on her Walkman, oh wait, no, that’s me. The Dorrit is probably listening to The Dead Kennedys. Carrie, again, looks around The Dorrit’s room and notices something strange with The Dorrit’s giant Teddy Bear- as most goth teens have Teddy Bears with false bottoms. Sure enough, the purse is inside of Ted. Carrie pulls it out and finds it covered in Nail Polish. Carrie is pissed, and Dorrit is all “it was an accident!!! Plus you got EVERYTHING!!” Carrie thinks about it. She DID get two extra years with her mom. Dorrit continues to tell Carrie that she “can’t boss me around” and she’s “such a goodie goodie!”
