Oh god.. Claire tries to go straight and secretly applies to join the police (like Jody! Like Donna!) but she gets turned down because of her juvie record. Claire tries to brush it off like she didn't really want to do it anyway.. but Jody and Donna find out and pull some strings (maybe they make a quick call to Sam who whoops accidentally wipes her juvenile records with some super smart hacker shit Charlie taught him) and they get her in. Maybe she becomes a cop, maybe she doesn't.. but FAMILY!
Or, better, she gets turned down but doesn’t know about it yet, and Jody is trying to figure out how to break the news when Sam calls just to check in, and she’s like “What am I gonna do? How would you have reacted to a college rejection letter?” and then he’s all “WHOOPS! BUTTER FINGERS! DARN!” and then Jody goes back to whoever and is like, “okay, do me a favor and just run her record one more time, please? I don’t wanna break her heart unless I have to, please, just… run it again, just to be sure.” And they’re like, “OKay but it won’t– huh. She’s… great. It must have been a computer error or something.” and then instead Claire comes home to a dark house, walks in the door, turns on lights to “CONGRATS!!!!” shouted by
three five six people with a banner and streams and confetti and dinner of all her favorite foods, with Jody and Sam having a silent conversation with a glance, and it’s just all HAPPY FEELS AND CONFETTI EVERYWHERE!!!!!!
