Recap: Heidi is carefully selecting her first day of school outfit...and when she asks Lauren for her opinion on the ensemble, Lauren's like, "I really don't give a shit about what outfit you wear after you got me in trouble with my boss last episode." She chides Heidi for making a drunken spectacle of herself with Jordan, then declares a new "big rule": no more crashing her work things.
In the Teen Vogue closet office, Whitney and Lauren compliment each other's outfits before invoking the light scolding Lauren got from Lisa during the Young Hollywood party. Lauren blames Heidi for crashing and inciting a fight with her boyfriend, and Whitney agrees that it wasn't very responsible behavior and adds that she finds Lisa kinda scary. No argument there.
Brian and Jordan are shooting hoops in the park as they too discuss the fight. Jordan puts the blame solely on Heidi 'cause she's always flirting with everyone, then claims she later admitted to him [off camera] that she was wrong. He then tells Brian that they later made up, and Brian cackles and says it'd be hot if they had a threesome with Lauren. I doubt Lauren would agree, but OK.
Lauren is summoned to Lisa's office to be chastised more thoroughly for her friends' boorish behavior at the party. Lisa contorts her default expression of disdain into one of even greater disdain as she recounts that they were drunk and arguing loudly, makes it clear that she does not approve of underage alcohol abuse, then asks how they were able to get in. Lauren stares back at her blankly and mumbles that she wasn't "out there" and therefore has no earthly idea how her friends were able to sneak in. Lisa decides against asking the MTV film crew for the video footage that would prove Lauren a giant fibber, reminds her that she's going to have to live a more wholesome life if wants to continue representing Teen Vogue, and informs her that next week she'll be in New York for fashion week. She sternly adds, "Behave."
Lauren returns to the closet office and assures Whitney she didn't rat her out for letting her halfwit friends into the party...which is the least she could do, given that she kind of pressured Whitney into it. Whitney thanks her for keeping her out of this mess, and Lauren grumbles that the whole thing is Heidi's fault.
Heidi lounges by the pool and calls Audrina to suggest they party at LAX tonight, then adds that Brian is likely to be in attendance. Audrina disinterestedly murmurs, "That's interesting" and agrees that a night out at LAX sounds like a fabulous idea.
That evening, the Hills gang arrives at LAX and swiftly cuts to the front of the line. As Jordan and Heidi dorkishly bob their heads to the music, Brian tells Audrina he has an audition for a casting agent who's looking for "someone tall who can act", and she replies in her usual 'I can't stop smiling' way that he's a shoo-in. In the next scene, we see the silhouettes of Heidi and Brent Bolthouse over at the bar having a deep discussion about whether he's willing to give her a faux job in exchange for getting Bolthouse Productions regularly featured on The Hills. A few seconds later, Heidi rushes back to the table to excitedly announce that she scored a job interview with Brent, then explains that he plans celebrity parties, events, and owns a string of nightclubs. Jordan sourly asks if Brent is single [seems irrelevant, given Brent's dorkiness], and Heidi jokes that, yeah, she's been looking for a second boyfriend, then chides him and Brian for raining on her parade. Lauren reminds her that they have school in the morning, but Heidi's all 'whatevs', says she's staying out 'til 2am, then literally starts jumping up and down and wooting with excitement about her upcoming job interview. Lauren stares at her with dismay before announcing that she's heading home to get a good night's sleep.
The next morning, Lauren knocks on Heidi's bedroom door, barking at her to get up for their first day of school. When the two arrive on campus, Heidi says she already wants to cut her classes - while Lauren, on the other hand, dutifully shows up to hers.
Over at Casa Neanderthal, a bleary-eyed Brian complains about how exhausted he is from partying every night, then wonders what the gals are doing tonight. He grunts about how he'd really like to go on a double date with himself, him (Jordan), Heidi, and Audrina. Jordan cackles, "Of course you do!" and credits Heidi with being "like, the supreme person to hook up people".
Heidi takes a break from cutting class to call Audrina on her cell phone and dish about how Brian is totes into her. Audrina makes what looked to me like an ew face before describing her admirer as sweet, cute, nice and funny.
After class, Lauren finds Heidi sitting in a computer lounge chair in the FIDM student center. When she asks how her classes went, Heidi replies, "I didn't finish" ... and by didn't finish she means that after a half-hearted search she wasn't able to locate her art class and just decided to skip it altogether. As she mumbles, "Art is really lame", Lauren stares back at her incredulously and urges her to give FIDM more than one day. Or even a half day. Heidi pretends she's willing to do that, then wearily says she's ready to go home and have a nap.
Later, Heidi and Jordan stroll to an outdoor cafe, and the two cackle about him being so tired 'cause she wore him out last night. She tells him she had a hard day at school and knows she's not cut out for any kind of advanced learnin'...and that if she gets fake hired at Bolthouse Productions she'll drop out of FIDM, like yesterday. Jordan shrugs, points out how aimless he too is about his future employment prospects, and urges to drop out if that's what she really wants.
The next morning, Heidi breaks the news to Lauren that she's not attending class this morning since it conflicts with her Bolthouse interview, and says if Brent hires her, she'll drop out of FIDM. Lauren's all, "Wha-a-a?" and reminds her that the whole purpose of them moving to L.A. was to go to school together - but Heidi argues that getting a job at Bolthouse Productions is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that she doubts will ever come along again.
Later, in the Teen Vogue closet office, Lauren tells Whitney that she and her pals went to LAX last night, where Heidi met Brent Bolthouse and scored a job interview. She chuckles about how bad Heidi is at hiding her many shortcoming during interviews...and says this as though she didn't mumble through an unimpressive performance of her own with Lisa Love last episode.
Heidi arrives at Bolthouse Productions casually dressed in a white knit turtleneck and jeans. Brent starts off the interview by asking the standard 'why should I hire you?', so she touts herself as extremely hardworking and "won't quit until everything is, like, exactly the way you want it". Brent says he's looking to hire a second assistant who can keep the office organized, then claims that despite [faux] hiring a reality show cast member he hates drama and wants as little of it in his orbit as possible. Heidi chews on that tidbit while staring confusedly into space - until she finally mumbles, "Yeah, that's good to hear" ... and the camera pans over to Brent, who's barely able to keep from laughing out loud.
Heidi calls Lauren to let her know she got her dream job and is sooooo excited. She gushes about the awesome office she'll be working in and how she'll get a real lunch break, and Lauren half-heartedly congratulates her and sarcastically says, "Good for you. What could go wrong?" before snapping her phone shut, smirking over at Whitney and murmuring, "Weird." LOL. As Heidi stares confusedly at her phone and goes, "Lauren? Lauren?", Lauren starts singing 'Fashion school dropout' while Heidi tries to call her back - but then quickly gives up, puts her phone away, and sashays down the street.
