Tess discovers Sam smoking in an attempt to integrate into a group of students, so she meddles like usual. But when the meddling ends up in her getting caught with a cigarette by her dad, she organizes a secret sibling meeting with Gabe.



Tess: When we're 90 and you're alive, you're gonna thank me.
Sam: I know smoking is wrong, but if it's gonna make me popular, what to do?
Gabe: I've made my decision. You're gonna stop smoking.
Gabe: Smoking is for losers!
Tess: Fine. Then I'll just take the blame for your actions even though I was just an innocent watcher...
Sam: No.
Jack: Tess!
Tess: I'm coming! Oh, you're cold, mister! (Leaves)
Sam: Don't look at me like that, mom! She got caught herself. And I know I'm not really talking to you right now. Oh, alright. Fine! I'll tell the truth.
Tess: Uh, Sam...
Sam: Yeah, I know. I'm gonna have to burn this sweater.
Jack: (To Spencer's teacher) I mean, seriously, a B? I did a lot of work... ...watching Spencer do it. Wow, you really don't like kids, don't you?
