A motorcyclist drive by and Courtney pretends that Christina is going down on her. Again, destroyed by bad timing, bad framing and overkill.

After years of avoiding the hazards of a meaningful relationship, one night while club-hopping with her girlfriends, she meets Peter, her perfect match.
I don't think she gets halfway enough praise for her talent. And what about the scene in the ladies' room, where the other girls are curious about Applegate's boobs and she tells them she paid for them and invites them to have a feel, and they do, like shoppers at Kmart?
