  • Angela says she's used to it. She'd go to dinner with her parents, and every guy would stare at her, all the guys at school fantasize about her… blah blah.

  • Now we see Jane and Angela through a home video viewfinder. As Jane's getting out of the car, she sees that Ricky is filming her. She calls him an asshole and gives him the finger before going inside.
