Elizabeth asked Kyle over and is making out with him on the couch. She's doing it angrily and it seems like part of her hopes David comes home and sees them together. Carter comes home and she rushes him out.
Carter has been drinking and admits she was with Crash. Carter informs Elizabeth her friend Abby thinks Crash is just great and Carter should be just like him. Carter's under so much pressure, and being expected to take the test is killing her. Elizabeth is afraid if she pushes too hard, Carter will push back and if she doesn't push, she'll be Lori. Elizabeth wants Carter to take the test and to bomb it. It's OK. She's putting more pressure on herself than Elizabeth is putting onto her.

At school, Taylor hears Bird thanking Max, prompting her to check out some Russian literature with Ofe.
Gabe hits on Abby. Awkward!
Elizabeth arrives at the test to tell Abby they need to work together to keep Crash out of Carter's life because he's a terrible influence. As they're talking, Crash pulls up and gives Carter a care package, complete with pencils, erasers and bananas. Carter is thinking about Lori. She never thought about classes, learning or anything. She wasn't just being the cool mom. She probably never wanted her to go to college because she'd end up alone.
Crash goes back to the garage to find Max waiting for him. Max wants to know why the car that was dropped off was filled with coke. The both stare at the trunk as the credits roll.
