"Separation Anxiety" Season 1, Episode 8

Best line of the night: "I'm also growing out my bangs, which requires extra sleep," a peeved Ashleigh tells Casey, explaining why she's too busy to help her plan the ZBZ community service project. For when Frannie announces that the sorority needs to up its philanthropy hours, Casey helms the service effort, even without the support of Ashleigh, who's still bitter over Casey's perfidy in the Travis breakup sitch last week. Casey dons her best twinset and headband to volunteer the girls to perform some sort of weird "edutainment" play at the Christian after-school program run by Dale, who's now crushing on Casey. In the mean time, Ashleigh gets busy befriending Rebecca, who exhibits a bit more of a human side this week with a little backstory about her parents and friends at home in D.C. Meanwhile, after Jen K. tells Rusty that her old high school boyfriend never took the lead in their relationship, Rusty decides to up his game by blurting out "I love you" over the mariachi music of their Mexican restaurant date. Awkward pause. "Thank you," she replies. Bereft, Rusty distracts Cappie from his frantic cleaning (trying to get over Casey) long enough for the house to head down to the "lunch buffet," i.e., a strip club. Cappie gets thoroughly trashed, and Calvin learns that his ambiguous boyfriend, Heath, hooked up with someone else after their previous night's awkward Waiting for Godot date. Calvin walks out, Cappie passes out, and Rusty has to call Casey to pay the bill and bail the brothers out. In the car ride back, Casey tells him about last week's kiss with Cappie, and Rusty is critical that she rejected him when he laid his heart out on the line. Next, it's showtime for the ZBZs, who are dressed to the nines, with Frannie as Marie Antoinette, Casey as a sexy librarian, Evan as a lizard, Jen K. as a Courier New sandwich board, etc. After Rusty tells Cappie that he knows about him and Casey, Cappie says that he regrets not telling her how he felt sooner but that he regrets nothing about the time they had together, which was great. Rusty wises up and apologizes to Jen K. for rushing things, and they make out. Other backstage goings-on include Casey answering Ashleigh's phone and realizing that she and Travis never really broke up. Although we unfortunately never get to see just what the ZBZ show entails, we do see the next-most-awesome thing: Dale and his band, Darwin Lied, rocking out and about to avoid hellfire. Possibly my favorite character, for real. In the end, Casey apologizes to Ashleigh for her critique of Travis and for focusing on herself too much and not enough on her BFF and they make up. And elsewhere, Jen K. tells Rusty, "I think I might love you," and Rusty echoes the sentiments. Aww. Up next week: Cappie and Rebecca (possibly) hook up! Sweet. show less
