Quentin wakes up from dreaming of Margo Roth Spiegelman when his phone rings.
It's 3:18AM and Ben is on the phone. He's drunk at an after-prom party, and he needs Quentin to take him home.
When Quentin arrives at the party, Ben is trying to break a keg stand record, which Quentin thinks is "so trivial, so embarrassing" (2.13.22). Totally unlike sleeping in an abandoned strip mall where a girl you've spent about twelve hours total with in your entire life once spent the night…
Everyone is drunk, and Quentin is annoyed at having to talk to them while he waits for Ben to leave.
He wanders around and passes a bedroom where Jase and Becca Arrington are having sex.
Quentin sticks around, hoping he'll get to see Becca naked, and he hears Jase call her Margo.
She gets angry (doesn't he know she's called Margo Roth Spiegelman?) and kicks him out.
Quentin goes to the bathroom, and Lacey is sitting in the bathtub, upset because Becca told everyone she has an STD.
The conversation turns to Margo Roth Spiegelman, and Lacey speculates that she's dead.
Ben finally gets ready to leave at 5:00AM, but he's superglued a sword made out of beer cans to his hands.
They dismantle the sword, leaving one can stuck to his hand, and Quentin drives him home.
