Lydia McLaughlin

Lydia doesn't understand why Gretchen can't be more supportive of Tamra and Vicki trying to make ammends.

We start right where we left off, at the clambake. I think it is cool that Vicki went to say hello to Tamara first, even though she sees and feels "all this Ick" between them. I think that shows that she is, or is trying to be, the bigger person and move forward. I am happy that Tamra and Vicki eventually talk and move on. . .although, I’m still trying to figure out what Gretchen has to do with their friendship. What is this second grade and you can only have one best bud? Gretchen seems to be scared that there is only room for one friend in Tamara's life,and she wants it to be her.

Heather is always a lady and even when the girls (Tamara and Gretchen) go to her to talk about Vicki's face, she holds her tongue. I love that about Heather because it does take strength to refrain from all the gossip. I'm sure she had an opinion about the way Vicki looked, but it wasn't the place or time to talk about it. . .especially while Vicki was probably five feet away. I also love her advice to Tamara as a "do over." No one has to be right or wrong. They both got hurt. She even calls herself a "Jewish Mary Poppins” at one point. This is probably my favorite quote from this episode. Who says that!?! I love her!
