Marissa begins to see the reality of living on her own, and takes a break from the housework to go to the mall with Summer, Seth, and Ryan. While waiting the arrival of Carter, the new editor for Newport Living, Julie is distracted when a man from her past resurfaces. Meanwhile, Sandy and Caleb find themselves bonding over their experiences.
Seth: Ah. Father. I'm glad to see you finally found your calling.
Caleb: Exactly what I said.
Sandy: Ah, nothing like a good crack about a plumber.
Summer: Trapped in a department store. Which is like my ultimate fantasy.
Ryan: Okay, and what if we get caught?
Summer: We'll be stealth.
Seth: How is it that Ryan and Marissa are now the functioning couple?
Summer: Oh my god, we can not be more annoying than Ryan and Marissa. They're monsters.
Seth: I like monsters.
Julie: Alex, and I'm not saying this to be mean. Because you actually seem like a nice enough girl, and ... I like your pants. But you're this week's yard guy.
Ryan: So what do we do now?
Summer: I have an idea. (puts on a hockey mask)
Ryan: You're going to kill us all with a chainsaw?
Seth: And besides, now with Lindsay out of the picture, maybe Ryan and Marissa will get back together.
Summer: Are you crazy? They're like the worst couple ever. And besides Marissa's happy now.
Seth: Okay, and by happy you mean gay.
Seth: This thing with Lindsay is just really kicking Ryan's ass.
Summer: Which is why it's a good thing we're like the Marines.
Seth: How are we like the Marines?
Summer: We leave no man behind. Look, Lindsay may have turned her back on Ryan, but we won't. No. You have got to cheer him up. Semper Fi.
Seth: Oh, Semper Fi. That's so cute.
Near the middle of the episode, Julie is carrying a brown bag in her left hand. When the shot returns to Julie, she has the bag in her right hand, then it switches back to the left in the next shot.
