Dan finds out that Vanessa got the one Tisch spot and expresses his disappointment to random mutual friend Willa. She informs Dan of a submission rule which Vanessa may have violated, and attempts to wrest the spot for Dan. (P.S. This same friend uses the phrase "a venti-sized serving of artistic justice." Yes, that happened.)
Naturally, Vanessa finds out about Dan's passive subterfuge and stalks off after confronting him. Oh, you arty kids. You'll work it out, right?
