Jill "you didnít like him?" "But you do now?" "Making plans are we?" Mac "we are in high school." Jill tells her not to "play innocent." Jill says she "saw her on the dance floor." "You looking at him, him looking at you, it was sickening!" Jill warns her that she had better not get near "my son" or "you will feel my wrath!" Mac threatens to tell Billy, what Jill is doing. Jill says it will only prove that "I was right all along." "That you are plotting to get Billy and drive a wedge between us." Mac says sarcastically "I am so scared."

Jack says Jill didnít tell him but it was "probably a dark horse." Ashley says, "The best laid plansÖ" Jack says Brittany was a shoe in and wonders what we will do now? Ashley says perhaps the commercial can come out of "Brittany being second." Jack says that will look like "Glow by JABOT is for losers."
