At the Cohens, Kirsten is on the phone with someone and says shell find a replacement. Sandy walks in and when she learns Sandy is free then she decides to see if Sandy will help out with the O.C. Yard Sale Charity Auction. She says she was supposed to chair it but cant. He didnt know there was such a thing as charity here. She says half the proceeds are donated, the other half are kept by the sponsor. Sandy says he thought all the yards were gated. She says its at the country club. Sandy says so a charity auction where the owners keep half the profits, and a yard sale with no yard. Sandy jokes so thats how they do it in the O.C. Kirsten begs Sandy to do her this tiny favor. He says no way. She says its an honorary chair position, a figurehead position. She says hed been the auctioneer; hed get a microphone and a captive audience. He says no fair playing on his weakness, and eventually agrees.

Sandy goes into the kitchen to see if the kids want to help with the pseudo-charity non-yard sale. Seth says he never thought hed be glad to say this but he and Ryan have school. Sandy says tomorrow they are his. Sandy asks Trey what hes doing, and Trey says looking for a job. Sandy says he has one for him.

Sandy and Trey head to the ballroom where the charity auction will be and he and Trey meet the Newpsies. Sandy says they are like vultures but they like to paint their talons. Sandy says hello to the Newpsies and then says hell just get out of the Newpsies hair. The two women say no they need help. One of the Newpsies says the moving company they hired didnt show, so Trey helps them move things. Sandy says hell come back later and pick him up. The other Newpsie tells Sandy that as chair he has to choose table linens, centerpieces and other stuff. Sandy says okay hell help Trey with the lifting. The woman says they need his help, being honorary chair isnt just a figure head position.

At school Seth is taunting Ryan about how he and Marissa will meet up late at night at the fridge and make out. As he French kisses the air, Marissa shows up and asks what Seth is doing. Seth says nothing and scrams. Marissa thinks Seth was talking about how awkward her moving in will be. Ryan pretends like he didnt know. Marissa says her mom called Kirsten, but Ryan says he didnt know. She says it wont be awkward will it, and he says no.

Zack meets up with Seth at the lockers and asks if he knows what comes out on DVD this weekend. Seth says yeah, Elektra, and that is the reason he didnt see that crap in the theaters. Seth also says ever since the whole comic book convention thing Summer has forbid him to have anything to do with comics. Zack says he knows the feeling. He says his mom is making him donate a lot of his comics to the charity yard sale. Seth makes Zack a deal, hell donate five of his so Zack doesnt have to donate ten of his.

At the ballroom, Trey is carrying things around for the Newpsies. He sees a crystal egg and asks what it is. The woman says one of the contributors ran a prop-house for Warner Brothers, that is from some Tom Cruise movie. Trey realizes this is the egg from Risky Business. She says its not the F14 from Top Gun. Trey says this thing must be worth a fortune. She says its appraised at ten thousand. He says that is a fortune. She says she guesses, and for Trey to come with her.

Marissa arrives at the Cohen house and she thanks Kirsten for letting her stay here. Marissa asks where she wants her? Kirsten says good question.

Carter says that is enough for a graphic novel, and he could help them. Zack is excited, but Seth says its not up to him, its up to Summer.

Seth goes to see Summer and says he was talking with Zack about the past. He says they were chatting about their passions and dreams. Summer says that made him think of her, that is so sweet.

She says she knows it cant be comics and if he brings up Atomic County then shell kill him and Zack while they sleep.

Commercial Break.

Ryan goes to Marissa and tells her the crystal egg from Risky Business, probably the most valuable thing here, is gone. Ryan says he thinks Trey stole it, which he doesnt understand considering things are going great for him. Marissa says no they arent, he didnt get the apartment cause his background check failed. He asks Marissa why she didnt tell him. Trey shows up and says because he asked her not to. Ryan says so he stole the egg? Trey says he didnt, but Ryan tells him not to lie to him. Trey asks what it matters? He says this stuff is junk. Ryan says after everything the Cohens and Marissa did for him? Trey says he just wanted to get some money and get out of everyones way. Ryan says well he will be because hell be going back to jail. Trey says they can still get it back. Ryan says Trey has done enough, hell go. 

The auction begins, and Sandy says give it up to the sponsor of this auction Kirsten and Carter from Newport Living. Sandy then jokes that last year they raised 100,000 dollars, but only 50,000 went to charity. Marissa tries to stall and takes Summer up on stage with her. Sandy asks if he can help them? Marissa says they are his assistants.

Ryan is heading off and Seth knows something is going and begs to go with him. Ryan eventually lets him go with him to shut Seth up. As they race to get the egg back, Sandy gets the auction smokin. When Sandy gets to the crystal egg, Marissa tells Summer to do something? Summer takes off her shoes and auctions them. Marissa runs to the back and says they have to find something else to auction. Trey says everything else is gone. Marissa says Summer will be auctioning herself soon. Someone ends up paying 60 dollars for Summers shoes, and she says Ew foot fetish!

Ryan and Seth arrive at the house where Trey took the egg. Seth goes to the door to distract the people while Ryan snoops. Ryan sneaks in a back window to get the egg while Seth talks to the guys who bought it from Trey. Seth pretends to be from the Tom Cruise film preservation society, and he says he understands they have the crystal egg from Risky Business. The guys ask Seth how he knows about the egg? Seth says it has been outfitted with a homing device, it must be a scientology thing as Mr. Cruise does it with all his favorite props. They think they should kill Seth. Ryan, who has the egg at this point, yells Hey! The thugs see he has the egg, and the chase is on. They head out of the house and Ryan throws the egg to Seth, and Seth freaks out as he was never good at PE. Seth catches the egg, and Ryan punches one of the guys. They run for the car and speed off.

Back at the auction, Zack and Trey are auctioned off to mow lawns, and the Newpsies go nuts. The bidding starts at 800 dollars. After this Sandy says they are at the last item, the crystal egg from Risky Business. Marissa and Summer say they are going to do a blind auction on this one, its like a silent auction but they dont get to see the egg. They describe it to them, and say its clear, its egg shape, and Tom Cruise touched it so its hot. The egg is sells for 10,000 dollars. Ryan and Seth then walk in and present the egg to the woman just in time. Sandy says the auction has ended and the bar is open. 

Later at the Cohens, Sandy confronts Ryan and Seth. He says he doesnt know what they were up to but he bets it has to do with Trey. He also says he thought they would talk to him about things like this. 

Marissa goes to see Trey and says she got the money he needed, she sold something from the basement of her house. She says she told him that shed help him, she wishes he would have listened. Trey says he just wanted to do it on his own. She says he doesnt have to, but Trey says he does. He says Ryan wont forgive him for this and he doesnt blame Ryan. Marissa says shell talk to him. He thanks her and says hell pay her back.

It turns out Kristen bought the silver tea set and sets it up in the hall. Marissa tells her that if she wanted it that she would have given it to her. Kirsten says her mom would have been proud to have had it auctioned for charity. Marissa feels bad and says she didnt know, but Kirsten says its okay. Kirsten says she thought it was lost and her dad isnt a fan of tea.

Ryan mopes out at the pool and Marissa comes out to check on him. Marissa asks what hes going to say to him? Ryan says nothing, hes gone and he doesnt care where he goes. Marissa says hes going to Alexs place, she got him the money legally. Ryan thanks her. They come close to sharing a kiss when Marissas cell interrupts, its Julie of course.
