( music playing )Rhyme:Previously,
on “Chicken Girls”…Ellie:Hello, Attaway.
Hopefully you’ve all read
Rhyme’s article.We’re protesting Home Economics
being part of the curriculum.I am boycotting this class. It is a waste of my time as
a strong, independent woman. We’re like a girl gang,
but also a political movement. I’m working on a cover story
about the protest. I don’t want
my identity to be defined
by one day being a mom. You ready to come back
to school? Everyone misses you. I’ll think about it. I have a new lease on life. No more Robby holding me back.
Please stay. It just may seem
a bit hypocritical
if I go right back to you. Robby over here
is trying to win me back,
but I told him no. Tim:
I thought you submitted it.
I mean, to be fair, you did leave it
on the printer right next
to the submissions folder. I am now the leader
of a movement I didn’t
even want to start. Oh, come on.
You’re the talk of the town. I even heard that
the school board might
change the curriculum. Yes, but now
Miss Whistle hates me and she didn’t give me
a better grade. God, what’s that smell? – I think we found the source.
– Very funny. I’m actually already
hot on the trail
of this stench. – You got a lead?
– Yeah, uh– Sounds like he’s bluffing. Keep me posted. Of course, you two
are working together. Tim accidentally
publishes my essay, and you write
that disgusting article – about how women belong
in the kitchen.
– That’s not what I wrote. You said that
the feminist movement
has gone too far, and that without
stay-at-home moms, the nuclear family
will collapse. And I stand by that. Women don’t need to stay
at home, but it’s not
a bad thing if they do. You literally told me
you agreed with me and then wrote
the exact opposite. That’s called
getting the story. You know, I really thought
you were a good guy in Miami. Clearly, I was wrong.♪ We fly so high ♪♪ We fly together

I’m sorry to say this, but are you wearing
sandwich perfume? Hamilton! Excuse you. Sorry, but that smell! Jeez, what is that?
I feel like I’m gonna be sick. ( bell ringing ) Do you think it’s another
Birdie and Spike special? I mean, they tagged the sign. Who knows what
they can pull off? I told you I shouldn’t
have come back. Just give it some time. – Earth to Flash.
– Oh, hey, Rhyme. Do you even care
that Kayla’s gone? We’re doing a long-distance, and it’s stressful times
like these where I like to
throw myself into my work. – On your phone?
– It’s for ‘Sup. Okay, well,
why don’t you text Kayla and
see what’s ‘sup with her? – You know her dad’s sick?
– Rhyme, I’m an entrepreneur. I have responsibilities. Glad to see that playing
Shortnight is more important
than your girlfriend. Way to go, Flash. – Hey.
– Can you believe Flash? Yeah, actually, I can. ‘Cause he’s just being
classic Flash. He doesn’t even care
that Kayla’s gone. Yeah, well, people grieve
in different ways. Okay, but with the way
he’s been acting, does that really look like
grieving to you? Well… no. No, he’s all smiley
and carefree. – He should be sad.
– I know. It’s weird, right? Do you know how to play
Shortnight? I do not.
That is for boys. Okay, that’s gender normative.
Girls can play it, too. Right. Well, I don’t,
but I know Robby used to. Oh, do you think
he could teach me? Or would that be weird since,
you know, you guys broke up? I’m sure it’s fine. Why? I just feel like Flash
is up to something, and I’m gonna get
to the bottom of it since Kayla’s not here
holding tabs on him. Boys suck. I’m so glad that
we are single together. Yup.( music playing )( bell ringing ) So, how’s Ace doing? Um, he’s good. We’re working on an update
for the app. Now you’re gonna be able
to say “‘Sup” in a girl’s
and a cat’s voice. That’s… cool. It’s kind of weird
how he just left so quickly,
and now Kayla. Yeah, um, Kayla and I
are doing long-distance, so it’s all right. And Ace just
and got on a plane. I miss our lunches
at the Ace Place. The Ace Place? Oh, it’s like
our secret hideout where we used to
work on ‘Sup. I’m sure he’ll be back
next semester. And Kayla, too. I hope so. Can you watch
where you’re going? Sorry.
I’m a little distracted
with this story. Still no closer
to solving it? I’m doing just fine.
Thanks. Hmm. Maybe you should
blame the girls.
It’s probably all their fault. Very funny.
It could be anything
or anyone. See you, Ezra.
I gotta go help clean
the school or something. – Oh, my God.
Is that smell you?
– Excuse me? Do you not smell that? No, I…
( sniffs ) Wait. Oh, my God.
I smell it now. That’s not me. ( sniffs ) You’re off the hook
this time. So… what do you know about
this mysterious smell? If I knew anything, I’d be
the first to come forward. Like, no one wants this.( music playing )Hey, Flash, what did you say
earlier about Ace’s Place? Oh, it’s just
this hidden corner
down the hall where me and Ace
used to work. I thought maybe Hamilton
had left a sandwich
laying around. But then I heard
he’s really cut down – on the sandwich intake.
– Flash:Man, I am so hungry.Ace’s mom made
the best BLT sandwiches. Well, I thought Quinn was
just trying a new fragrance. So do you think this
could be some kind of prank? No. Who would do that? I might miss the sandwiches
more than I miss Ace. Where did you say
that hideaway was? Oh, just take a left,
take a right, then go down the stairs. Rhyme? Rhyme?
Do you have any food?
I’m so hungry. ( door opening, closing ) ( sniffing ) Luna:Oh, my God,
is that smell you?Ty:Excuse me?Luna:
Do you not smell that?What’s your name again? Ezra. I’m new here. – That’s not me.
– You’re off the hook
this time. – That smell!
– Jeez, what is that? I feel like
I’m gonna be sick. I’m actually already hot
on the trail of the stench. – Sounds like he’s bluffing.
– Ezra:Very funny.Sorry. Like I said,
I don’t know anything. Tim:
God, what’s that smell?Rhyme:
I think we found the source.( gasps ) ( sighs )( music playing )( typing ) What are you smiling about? “The source of
a mysterious stench in the hallways
of Attaway High has finally
been identified. Last semester,
two freshmen boys used
a little-known corner of the school to create ‘Sup, a popular app. Unfortunately,
they also ate BLT sandwiches
in this room, and those sandwiches
were never discarded.” But how did the smell
get from there to
the rest of the school? It’s right by
the air conditioning room, so it’s literally
pumping stale food – through all the vents.
– Gross. Yeah, be glad
you didn’t have to see it. Thanks, Rhyme,
I can take it from here. Actually,
this is Rhyme’s scoop. Rhyme, it’s your article
if you want it. I would love to write it.( music playing )Hey, thanks for meeting me. No problem. Let me guess,
you hated the photos and you never want to be in
the “Attaway Appeal” again. No, I actually love them.
You’re really talented. That’s really nice
coming from somebody that’s actually talented. If it’s not about
the photos, what’s up? Nothing. I just wanted to see you. – See me?
– Yeah, you know? Like, hang out,
get to know each other. Is that okay? It’s– yeah,
I think it’s okay.( music playing )I’ll give you a heads up then
next time. Oh, we’re already planning
a next time? I guess I just got
a good feeling about this.♪ Trickles down my spine ♪♪ The warm hand

on my brand new couch? I’m really sorry. I forgot. I’ve had a really crappy day. Language, Ezra.
It’s like I’m living in
a fraternity house.Mira,money doesn’t
grow on trees, and that couch cost
a lot of money. Do you understand? Is Dad home? Why? Are you
going to tell on me? I’m really sorry, Elena.
I’ll just go to my room. You are so disappointing. Mmm.( music playing )Rhyme:Next time
on “Chicken Girls”…You knew I was chasing
this story,and you swiped it
from under me again.Girl:Are you gonna invite
Drake to the Sweet 16?I might be out of town
that weekend. Boys for the most part
kinda suck. Both: Amen.( music playing )
