Special Sub-Topic: 1.7 "Higher Education"
|Nancy bumps into Doug (what's new there..) at Valley State Community College. He was there to take a seminar, why was Nancy there?|
to find Silas a tutor. Doug was attending a seminar called "Create Your Own Small Business". Nancy asked why he wasn't teaching the class, and he said teachers did not make enough money. He explained how he'd sit in the class and correct the teacher. He'd do it so long, he'd convince the students to quit the class. When they did, he'd pass out his business card. Nancy was checking out the board for flyers, where she found Sanjay.
|Shane had a new friend in this episode. He was a red-haired boy named Max. What was the name of Max's mother?|
Eileen. Clare Carey played Eileen Dodd. She met Andy when she came over to pick up Max, and they become very friendly. Clare has guest starred on many TV episodes. The series include "ER", "Judging Amy", "Nightstalker", "Point Pleasant", and "Cold Case".
The three incorrect options were all real ladies that starred in "Survivor: The Australian Outback". Amber and Alicia both came back to star in "Survivor: All-stars" as well, where Amber met Rob.
|Who did Nancy set loose at Valley State to sell her weed?|
Sanjay. Sanjay is the young man Nancy hired to tutor Silas. When Sanjay asked Nancy to let him know about any more employment opportunities, she decided to make him one of her soldiers. Maulik Pancholy played a character named Sanjay in a movie as well, "Diwali". He also played Raoul in the movie "Hitch".
The singer/actress Pink's real name is Alicia Moore. That gave me three easy incorrect choices.
|Which state did Isabelle's Gran Pat come from, to be with her daughter Celia?|
Florida. Gran Pat came to be with Celia after the mastectomy. She told Isabelle that Florida was "much cleaner" than California. Gran Pat did not plan to stay long, as she had a church cruise to attend. She stayed long enough to be hyper critical and show us why Celia had so many issues.
|Andy helped Shane buy a teacher's textbook off of the internet.|
T. The book was delivered to a Professor Shane Botwin, while Andy was busy with Max's mom Eileen. Shane signed for it, telling the delivery man that the professor was grading papers. Shane used the Science book to get a 98 on his test. He even marked two incorrectly, as Andy had instructed!
|After Nancy's cellphone mistake inside Heylia's house, what did Heylia tell her to buy?|
disposable cell phones. Nancy took her advice, and handed them out to Sanjay and the rest of her new soldiers. She told them never to call out on the phones, and throw them away in two weeks. Nancy had used her cell phone inside Heylia's house, saying she was at her dealer's at the time. Heylia chastised her and then explained the proper way to handle her business.
|Heylia to Conrad: "That girl's got too much hubris."
In this context, what does hubris mean?
arrogance. Nancy was bragging over her new territories and her "pyramid". She'd built a little pyramid, as Heylia had suggested. But, she did not follow all of Heylia's advice. The first soldier's (Sanjay) soldiers should NOT know Nancy. Sanjay's college buddies (weed sellers) did know Nancy. Hubris also means to be presumptuous.
|What did Dean and Celia do to Pat after her power walk?|
locked her out of the house. Isabelle, Celia, and Dean all sat down to eat dinner. When Pat came back it already dark outside, but they would not let her back into the house. In fact, when she pounded on the windows, Dean lowered all the drapes! Concetta Tomei played Celia's mom Pat. Concetta played Lynda Hansen on the series "Providence" and Major Lila Garreau on "China Beach".
|What grade did Shane get on his science test?|
98. Shane got a 98 because he used the teacher's text book. Andy commented that he'd surely get into Berkeley with grades like that.
|What did Nancy find sitting on her water fountain at the end of this episode?|
pennies. First, her car was scratched by pennies, and now they sat all over her water fountain! Conrad told her that the pennies were a sign she'd irritated another dealer. Now, she was more convinced it was true. She confronted the penny guy, Alejandro, in the next episode.
