When Jack tries to blow off her concerns Nina tells him that Lori is still his girlfriend. Jack then tells her that he hasn't been able to stop thinking about her since lunch time.

While Summer is cleaning up the mess, he asks her what the warning was about and she tells him that her boss said she didn't deliver all the papers. But she had. Boyd says that someone must have mucked around with her delivery after she'd finished and they both come to the same conclusion – Jacinta. They agree that it was probably payback for the present they left on her doorstep, which Summer adds, was payback for bullying her. They start scheming for ways to get back at her. Summer suggests throwing a rock in her window and itchy powder, but Boyd tells her it's time they used their "noggin" (i.e. brain).
