The Spectacular Now Chapter 3 Summary
- Uh-oh. Now Sutter's super-late to pick Cassidy up.
- He's head over heels for her, since she's tough and cool and…fat? But in a hot way, according to Sutter.
- When he gets there, she's mad, and won't open the door.
- So Sutter—master of logic—climbs up to her window.
- Er, he climbs part of the way, and then falls off the roof.
- That gets her to come out, but only to yell at him for messing up the gutters.
- He tells her about Walter, though, so she calms down a little.
- But then she proceeds to lecture him about his total lack of relationship skills.
- Is Sutter listening? Nope. He's too focused on how hot she is to pay any attention to what she's saying.
- So when she finishes her rant with an ultimatum, he knows he's in trouble.
- Still, he tells her he'll do anything for her. To prove it, he does a headstand and chugs the rest of his whiskey upside down.
- After a romantic gesture like that, of course the end up in bed together.
- Sutter does have some nagging worry about that ultimatum, but it's nothing that another drink can't solve.
