Rick meets Phil
Rick comes to Lily's house and is greeted by Phil. The ensuing moments are awkward as Phil asks Rick his "intentions", and then tells him that he loves Lily so, prompting Rick to awkwardly reply "You're not alone in that", just before being interrupted by Grace's return. More awkwardness.
Announcing Divorce Proceedings
Lily ends up doing this several times. First to herself, then to Phil (who loans her the money for the attorney), then to Jake.
Rick brings Lily a gift to "help her where she's going" It is a live cricket to live in her house. Old Chinese custom to bring good luck.
Grace's First Kiss
In the High School Library, after a conversation about how Jane Eyre helps calm her, Jared and Grace kiss. This in interspersed with a black-and-white interview with Grace when she's talking about why a first kiss deserves a name of its own.
The first lie
Grace catches Jake lying about her writer's camp application fee. This is apparently the first time Grace recognizes that Jake openly and easily lies to cover himself.
The Restaurant Opening
Phil's reopens after remodelling.
Not currently available
Lily wears a yellow T-shirt with "Niagra Falls" on the front through most of the first half of the episode.
Forgotten Dinner Invitation
Lily had invited Naomi over for dinner and forgot, having to feed Naomi with leftovers. It is during this event that Naomi recommends a divorce lawyer to Lily.
This occurs on Valentine's Day
Grace announces to Lily that Jake has hired this "totally outrageous band, Average Joe" to play at the opening of the restaurant. "Average Jo" is actually the name of Shane West's band, although the band in this episode is nothing like them.
Jared and divorce
Jared's parents have been divorced for about 2 years
After school, Jared works in a smoothie store.
"Red" Jared's friends, who we see twice, call him by the contraction "Red"
