Ellie and her friends, who are all named, talk in the car while Chad tells them about Hawaii. After he explains what "wahine" and "malihini" means, one says that they're "wahine malihinis", causing Ellie to say "Big deal?" and turn on the music. Then friend asks, "Patsy, must you?" and Ellie replies that she was the one who did it, causing the friend to respond that it's rude, since Chad was talking to them.

Later, Ellie and Selena trade some barbs about her boredom with hula dancing.
