First, are you caught up? The adult son of an aging actress moves home to Beverly Hills from planet Kansas with his wife and two kids and they realize life here is, like, totally different. Bowling goes from uncool to cool, the Peach Pit serves Dr. Pepper by the case, and while drugs are generally bad, sex happens to be generally good.

Okay, so now you're ready for some "Model Behavior" in which the family matriarch gets to speak several lines in a row and move her arms and legs like a real person, the fashion victim with Shirley Temple curls plays a losing round of The Parent Trap, the world's holiest man calls from Wyoming, and we find out new places to score us some Dr. Pepper and some hard drugs. Pick your poison, pull up a seat, and let's hit the runway.

The staff of WBHHS call in drug addict Adrianna--kicked out of the school play before curtain to be replaced by Annie Wilson, whose farts smell like roses, one might imagine--and try to go all intervention on her, but it's the most passive aggressive meeting between a student, her parent, and people who are allegedly employed to be authority figures, since Adrianna's showbiz mom clearly calls the shots and nothing is really accomplished.

After the meeting, Principal Wilson, aka Annie and Dixon's dad, pulls his daughter aside and asks her to be nice to Adrianna, you know, "be the bigger person," which is a strange request of someone who is the size and weight of a business-sized envelope. Cue snotty teen-aged ohmygoddddd face and resigned sigh, and looks like we have a deal. Can Annie forgive Adrianna for cock-blocking her after the school play in the Roosevelt Hotel? Oh, the suspense!
