Kim and June -- or Kim-Kim and June-June, as they affectionately call each other -- are spending a lot fo time together. Kim bought June a whole lot of clothes when they went shopping, and they’re texting constantly. Reba’s feeling a little threatened, so she offers to take June shopping herself.
Cash got bullied by the local surfers, and now he’s feeling emasculated -- even though he doesn’t really know what that word means. Lillie Mae takes Cash under her wing and gets him to man up. She blindfolds him and leaves him on the beach with a campfire. If he can get through the night, he’s a man.
June: Kim doesn’t like the word “mom.” She says it implies an imbalance of power.
Reba: There is an imbalance of power. I have it all, and you have none.
Kim: Let’s not waste anymore time, sweetheart, because after the mall I still have yoga and my nails and my Brazilian wax. It’s my busy day.
Cash: Yesterday when I tried to go out [surfing], the local guys told me to get lost.
Lillie Mae: Well, so what? You’ve got a middle finger. Use it.
Reba (to June): You sure look different. Is that glitter?
Kim: Oh no. It’s shimmer, because glitter’s for sluts.
Reba: How much did all this cost?
Kim: Oh, I don’t know. I don’t look at numbers, I just sign things. Besides, 3% of the proceeds go to a village in Burundi. Last year I got three Balenciaga handbags and they got a Christmas goat.
Lillie Mae (to Cash): It’s time for you to step into manhood. But to do that, you need a man to give you a push, and since your daddy’s not around, that man will be me.
June: This cleanse will flush out my skin and make me look younger.
Reba: You’re fourteen. What do you wanna look like, a fetus?
Lillie Mae: In my day we had a cleanse -- we called it dysentery.
When June and Reba go shopping, June decides to flip the script and make Reba try on some clothes -- like high heels and a leather dress. It’s not exactly her thing. June also texts Kim “SOS” because she’s shopping with her mom. That’s one abbreviation Reba knows.
Cash, newly a man after his night alone down on the beach, sits Reba and June down and actually gets them to come to a compromise. It’s just that Reba’s busy, and June needs friends. But June is having a great time out here, and Reba knows that a mom’s not a buddy. They know they love each other, and that’s what’s important.
Lillie Mae: I know what you’re going through. I was your age when I lost my daddy.
Cash: My daddy’s still alive.
Lillie Mae: Only because your mother and I had a fundamental disagreement.
Reba (seeing the smoke from Cash’s campfire): Oh my gosh, is the house on fire?
Lillie Mae: No, I am making me a man down there.
Kim: You…are going…to go shopping…with her? Does she need school supplies?
Reba: No we’re gonna go shopping for clothes.
Kim: Is she being punished for something?
June: What about this?
Reba: That’s a cute shirt.
June: It’s a dress.
Reba: Oh you’re not wearing that without pants. Or pepper spray.
