Spencer starts a conversation with Lauren and she doesn’t really want to talk to him because he hurt her so much, so she just ignores him. Later that’s day, after work Lauren walks to Mister Burger because her best friend Casey is giving her a ride home and Spencer and all of his jock friends are there and he starts talking to her again. Once again she is embarrassed so she doesn’t really say much. After they leave Casey asks her to go to Jeff Hughes house for a party, she says no but ends up going because her mom blew off her plans with her.
