90210 s05e06 Episode Script

The Con

- Previously on 90210 - It's probably just nerve waking up.
You should probably see a doctor.
There's no way in hell I'm letting anything get in the way of this.
Do you think we could talk about stuff? - Talk about what? - Our relationship is important to me.
And my career's important to me.
- Have a great show.
- Have you seen Ade? I was actually looking around for Silver.
Can't believe she's not here.
I guess the problems that Dixon and I had before the accident - never really went away.
- Now you're fighting things that maybe you should just go with.
So, what do you think? It's pretty great, huh? - If I can do this with some little clam shack - Hey, I'm sorry.
This is really great.
Have you seen Liam? I got to talk to him about something.
You have no right to judge me.
You don't even know me.
And you don't know me.
You will not believe what I just got vid of.
That actor guy totally doing some chick.
This is a private club.
We don't allow video of our customers.
- It's Liam.
- Is that his teacher? - This guy is unbelievable.
- The busboy's not your only fan.
- Annie, go talk to him.
- I will go And have a drink with him.
So, where's your man, the world traveler? - Colin is stuck at work.
- I can sit here and just spit out some crap I read in travel and leisure for you.
Alec knew exactly where I was.
He's been using your GPS to track your location.
You'd like to reverse this pathway and you have access to his e-mail account.
Someone who really knew what the hell they were doing hacked - into our secure server.
- This could sink us.
I hacked into the wife's mobile phone.
Candy from a baby.
Are you sure no one can see us? Well, the window's fogged up.
Maybe we should move this off campus.
I can't.
I've got class in ten minutes.
Why don't we just go make out on the steps of Kappa Gamma? Yeah, why don't we? I told you I'm a professor, you're a student.
There are rules about these things.
Actually, I looked it up in the handbook.
You can't have a relationship with your student.
But I'm not your student.
I transferred classes.
I don't know what's hotter that you read the handbook or that you're trying to get me on a technicality.
Look, it may not be wrong, but it looks wrong.
I don't like all this sneaking around.
I've been in these situations before.
They never end well.
I'm not saying we'll keep it secret forever.
Just until we figure out what exactly this is.
So we have to sneak around L.
, but what about Santa Barbara? I have to go to Phenomi-Con this weekend to help promote my movie.
You should come.
That's a comic book convention.
There's gonna be college kids all over the place.
Not to mention reporters.
I'll see you when you get back.
And, hey, maybe while you're gone, I'll buy a bigger car.
The breach came from outside our network, but it wasn't hacked.
Someone logged in using an admin clearance? Before we could lock it down, they copied the B server with the R.
Any chance this is geek speak for "everything's gonna be just fine?" Well, you know the video game that we've been working on with Liam? Right, so I created a special graphics engine for it that converts a cell-phone photo that you take of yourself into a digital avatar, and then you can play with it in the game.
It's unlike anything that's ever been done before.
Now it's been stolen.
So it's just gone.
You can't use it? The video game business is all about being first.
So if whoever stole it finds a way to market it before we do, then we're screwed.
I just I don't understand how this happened.
I think I do.
The other night at the club opening, I was distracted.
I left my phone at the bar for a few minutes.
If someone cloned it, they'd have all my security clearances.
How exactly were you distracted? You know what? Who cares whose fault it is? What matters is how we fix it.
If being first is a big deal, then release the game now.
I mean, Liam's gonna be at that nerd convention.
Do it there.
Honey, that's sweet, but it's not that simple.
Phenomi-Con starts tomorrow.
I mean, we were gonna be lucky if we got the game ready in time for Christmas.
It's it's not gonna work.
We can't get the whole game ready for Phenomi-Con, but we might be able to finish a demo.
Then, no matter what happens, we'll still be first, right? What do you think? I mean, if we're gonna get the codes finished in time, it's gonna take all night.
I'm gonna need all three of us working together.
I'm in.
Me, too.
Oh, hey.
Are you here to lecture me again on what a shallow person I turned out to be? I get that you're pissed about what I said the other night at the club, and I'll admit I was wrong.
And I'm here to apologize.
Really? Yeah, and you should feel honored, too, because I almost never apologize.
Then again, I'm almost never wrong.
- So - Well, your sincerity is touching.
Look, Annie, the truth is, is that we were having a good time the other night.
And then Rand McNally showed up and I got jealous.
It's it's because I I like you.
I don't know what to say.
How about, "hey, I like you, too, so take me back to your place and let's rotate those tires.
" Riley! - Okay.
- Look I appreciate your honesty.
I do, but I still want to give things a chance with Colin.
Wait you want to be with that guy, fine, - but I still think he's a tool.
- Stop it.
I'm serious.
"Oh, I used to drink espresso in Paris after doing laps around the leaning Tower of Pisa.
" What? If you're going to date that guy, you might want - to hire a fact checker.
- And what? You're the perfect guy? You're a selfish, hotheaded ego maniac.
Did you just call me "hot"? I like Colin.
He's a nice guy, and that may sound shallow to you, but I have a long history of dating the wrong guy, and I'm not making that mistake again.
I get it.
You have fun with Mr.
Right, okay? I'm gonna go rotate my own tires.
Hey! I know why you're here.
You do? Yeah, you saw that blog online that said my club was off the chain.
You came to congratulate me.
That's definitely it.
But it's time to take the training wheels off.
I'm making plans for, uh, Pop Ups in Chicago, New York.
Once we get established there, I'm thinking Europe.
Uh, people have no idea how big the club scene is in Greece.
Yeah, I hear it's really "off the chain.
" Hey, there you are! You're going to - Phenomi-Con this weekend, right? - Well If by "going," you mean "contractually obligated," then yes.
Why? I was thinking about meeting up with some people from the crew of Corporate Invaders.
Can I ride with you? Yeah, sounds good.
We'll, uh, take the bike.
- Yeah.
- Oh, hey, Liam, uh We we were just talking about the Pop Up, uh Oh, and that reminds me.
Did I see your professor from C.
here the other night? - I don't think so.
- You sure? 'Cause someone said they saw the two of you coming from the back kitchen together.
Wow, that's oddly specific.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure if I saw my teacher in real life, I would remember.
I used to have nightmares about that in grade school.
Hey, if we're gonna go to Phenomi-Con, I should probably work on my bike, so I'll pick you up in the morning.
Hey, he's acting a little weird.
Don't you think? Eh, I don't know.
Sometimes I feel like Hollywood's gone to his head.
Mmm, mmm.
Unlike Navid Shirazi who's the same club-promoting player he was in high school.
Baby, you got to check this video Navid sent me from the Pop Up.
I'm telling you, you get to see everything you missed.
Yeah, well, you've been talking about it so much, I feel like I was there.
Okay, look, babe, I know you're mad at me for snapping at you at the Pop Up, okay? But you got to understand I had a lot going on.
Yeah, your big comeback.
No, it Yeah, and and other stuff.
Other stuff? Oh, that explains everything.
Thank you.
Can we please not talk about this right now? You know what? We don't even have to talk about it at all.
Wait, where you going? I thought we was gonna watch the video.
I'll watch it later, okay? I have to go to the store.
We're out of milk and "other stuff.
" Hey.
I've got ten minutes.
Welcome to the hack-a-thon! Honey, this is amazing.
You know, we really could've pulled an all-nighter at the office.
Nonsense these little geeks are going to be working till the wee hours to get ready for Phenomi-Con.
If you want to maximize production, you have to incentivize! Ergonomic chairs.
Monitors with glare filters to reduce eye strain.
Ludwig will make drinks to order and give everything a double shot of guarana.
The dj has been instructed to give a steady, driving beat.
And there's a pound of cocaine on the kitchen counter.
I just hope this works.
Our R.
engine is still buggy, so we got to run a special algorithm to stabilize it, and that kind of thing usually takes weeks.
You can focus on the math.
I will focus on the morale.
Mwah! Wow, talk about incentive.
I had to pull some strings, but I got us a convention room for tomorrow.
Great, now we can focus on the presentation.
First, I got to ask you something.
Um, after everything between us, why'd you cover for me with Max? Look, Alec, I don't have an angle.
I was the one distracting you when you lost your phone and neither of us want Max to know that.
But despite what you might think, I actually want what's best for this company.
Well, thanks.
Let's not braid each other's hair just yet.
Hey, who's this guy? Oh, I invited him.
He's Annie's little computer nerd Colin.
Thank you so much for coming.
- You know code? - Hey, uh, sure, yeah.
I work in I.
at an insurance company.
Okay, well, uh, grab some coffee and check in with Max.
He'll tell you what he needs.
- Good.
- All right.
Hey, I'm really sorry that this is so last-minute.
No, this will be fun.
When I worked in Sydney, we'd write code all night and in the mornings we'd go diving off the Great Barrier Reef.
Oh, that sounds amazing, but, um, isn't the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland? Yeah.
That's what I meant, Queensland.
I'm gonna get some coffee.
Silver just texted.
She's ready to go.
One of you guys lock up for me? Yep, you know me, always got your back.
Thanks, man.
Later! Hey, you think they're gonna hook up? Dude, you just opened your first successful club.
You should be up to your elbows in hot tail.
- Why do you care? - Liam should have the guts to tell me, that's all.
And I'm worried Silver's gonna get hurt.
And he's clearly lying to her about his professor why can't you see what a jerk he is? He's a jerk 'cause he wants to sleep with two girls? I know a lot of jerks.
Yeah, I told you about that video I took from that kid at the Pop Up, right? The sex tape? You're not gonna do anything with that.
You're too nice a guy.
You're right.
I am.
And that's why I'm gonna show it to Silver and prove that Liam's lying.
Before she does something she'll regret.
Hey, dude.
Where you going? Phenomi-Con.
Phenomi? - He is obsessed with Liam and Silver.
- What's new? I'm telling you, man, Liam did a number on him.
You don't mess with another guy's girl.
You don't.
So, what are you doing here? Oh, uh, I'm just picking up the rest of my equipment.
- You mind helping me out a little? - Yeah, yeah, sure.
Oh, uh, by the way, what'd you think of the set? I had to step out for a while.
Um, I heard it was great, though.
Damn, dude.
Adrianna missed it, too.
I don't know, I I kind of snapped at her.
She left.
Well, it was a big night for you.
No, no, man.
I I've been kind of being being a jerk lately.
We got into another argument this morning.
It it just sucks.
You know? It really does.
I really wanted her to see it.
She's, like, the most important person in the world to me.
What the? Listen up, everybody! I know it's 3:30 in the morning and you're all exhausted, which is why I'm rolling out the big guns.
From here on out, when you finish a line of code, you will get three minutes in the chair with my certified massage therapist, Gigi.
Annie? You're here late.
Oh, hi, Professor Beckwith.
My friend Naomi lives nearby and we're pulling an all-nighter.
The guy I'm seeing wanted Brain Shock, and this is the closest place open.
What are you still doing here? Grading papers in my office.
Exciting weekend, huh? Oh, hey, I've been meaning to thank you for helping my friend Liam with his contract problem.
Nice guy.
Yeah, maybe too nice.
He let his business partner-slash girlfriend-slash-psycho bitch walk all over him.
Not that you needed to know that.
I'm just had way too much caffeine.
It's okay, um - She was pretty crazy, huh? - Yeah.
Well, he's got a long history of dating the wrong girl.
But who am I to talk? My track record isn't great, either.
- You mean the energy drink guy? - Colin? No, Colin is great.
Even if he couldn't pass fourth grade geography.
But you know what? I'm not gonna do this.
He is a perfectly good guy, and when you find a good guy, you need to put your doubts aside and make it work.
Yeah, guess you do.
That was a really intense conversation for 3:00 in the morning.
I'm sorry.
Brain Shock? It's done.
It's it's done.
Of course, it's so simple.
Hey, everyone! Huh? Max did it.
Huh? - He did it? - We did it.
Oh, my God! My husband's a genius! We're going to Phenomi-Con! We're going to Phenomi-Con! Good job! Come on, guys.
We have to leave now or there's a chance we won't make it.
Never tell me the odds.
It's Han Solo.
Yeah, I got that.
You're bringing a suit for the presentation, right? His Armani's already in the car.
I love you.
I know.
I can't believe I let you talk me into being an elf.
You look amazing.
Are you sure Colin - doesn't want to come with us? - I don't know.
He didn't even say good-bye when he left last night.
The poor boy's probably trying to sleep off the hack-a-thon.
Don't worry, you can keep the costume and elf his brains out later.
Come on! Okay, you died in Corporate Invaders one, so how are you even in the sequel? Are we to assume that Corporate Invaders 2 is actually a prequel like temple of doom? Or is this some lazy writer just pulling a retcon on us? Um, I think they cloned my DNA.
No your body burned in fire.
Okay? How would the aliens get a viable DNA sample? Oh, my God! Liam Court? Will you sign my boob? Hell, yes! Sorry, guys.
Can't pass this, uh, opportunity up.
I'm sorry.
Geez! Oh, my God, Liam! Man, these guys are obsessed.
Yeah, but that obsession is what made your movie number one at the box office.
Ah, I guess so.
This is so cool.
I feel like I'm back in Navid's high school bedroom.
Like, old-school Navid, not the new model who dates porn stars.
Ah, don't be so hard on him.
I can't even talk to him anymore.
It's like he's running for douche bag of the year.
I think he's just got it in his head that if he can show you how cool he is, then you'll realize you made a mistake.
Worst idea ever.
There you go, proves it.
Navid's the same old guy he always was.
Seriously, though, you should give him a chance.
Well, listen, I got to get to the autograph booth.
- Try not to get impaled by anything while I'm gone.
- Deal.
See you.
Can you make it out to "Amy, the future mother of my child"? Uh let's just go with "my biggest fan.
" Next.
Could you make it out to "Lindsey your second biggest fan"? What are you doing here? I thought, uh, you didn't want to be seen together.
That's what the mask's for, genius.
When you find someone you really want to be with, you figure out a way to make it work.
I told Dixon I was going for eggs.
I hate eggs.
My alibis need some work.
You're not big into foreplay, are you? What's the game plan here? I don't really have a game plan because if I think too hard about what we're doing, I'm gonna feel terrible.
I already feel terrible.
I saw Dixon at offshore.
- What did you say to him? - Nothing.
Uh, he said you two got in another fight.
Yeah, because all he thinks about is his career.
Ade, I didn't sign up to be the guy that you get revenge with every time you're mad at your boyfriend.
You need to end it.
I will, okay? As soon as he makes a full recovery.
He he already played the Pop Up the other night.
What does he have to do, run a four-minute mile? Okay, are we gonna do this or not? No.
Break up with Dixon or we're done.
Wow, looks like he finally found his tribe.
Oh, computer guys love him.
He's like a geek God.
Okay, everything's in place for the presentation.
I think we really pulled this off.
It's like I've been telling you all along: you, me and Max make a great team.
Who am I to disagree? Oh, my God, I think I just saw Colin.
I bet he came here to surprise you.
Oh, he's so sweet.
I'm so glad I forced you to date him.
This comic book is from the silver age.
You smell that? That's paper and ink from 50 years ago.
I had no idea you were into this stuff.
I have a confession to make.
I told you that I saw Corporate Invaders with an idiot boyfriend, but the truth is, I went to see it by myself.
Opening night.
Do you cut photos of me out of tiger beat, too, or Don't flatter yourself.
The movie sucked.
I didn't lie about that.
You know, this is weird.
I am signing action figures of myself, and you're dressed as a Cheetah thing.
But this is actually, like, the most normal date that we've had.
Yeah, it kind of is.
It could be like this all the time, you know? I mean, I'm not trying to pressure you or anything.
Just think about it.
- Okay.
- Okay.
You should get to your press thing.
- Yeah.
- I am going to go look for a couple back copies of Elf Quest, which is something you should definitely do while you're still wearing a mask.
What are you doing here? Hey, uh, just looking for Silver.
Oh, uh, she's with the crew getting ready for the VIP screening.
The director's showing us the first ten minutes of the film.
Is everything okay? Yeah, sure, it's just, uh, time to be honest with her about a few things.
Good, maybe you should just kind of roll the douche bag thing back a bit.
- What are you talking about? - I just mean you're coming on a little strong, you know? Give her some space.
Yeah, I bet you'd like that.
What does that mean? The last time I asked you for advice, you said to go back to Princeton so you could sleep with Silver.
I'm not trying to sleep with Silver.
Right, because a guy like you doesn't even have to try.
I mean, women just throw themselves at you at conventions, parties You know what? Maybe this is not an act.
Maybe you actually are a douche bag.
I'm a douche bag? We'll see about that.
Excuse me.
Excuse me.
- Uh, excuse me, uh - Yeah.
You know where I can find the VIP screening room? Yeah, are you, uh, cast or crew? I'm from the studio.
Uh, they sent me over with the latest cut of the movie.
Ladies and gentlemen, today is a day you will never forget.
Because today, gaming technology takes a huge leap forward.
Are you ready? Annie? Did you find Colin? Yeah, I did.
The game is called Eternal Conflict, and the hero is you.
Oh, my God.
He stole Max's idea.
Welcome to the future.
There you have it.
I can't believe this.
So it was Colin who hacked the system? I am so sorry, you guys.
- I should have known something was up.
- He obviously had his game all ready to go; he just needed the final codes.
Yeah, and we worked all night to give them to him.
But when would Colin have gotten my phone? At the Pop Up? Actually, I think it might have been Yeah, I'm pretty sure it had to have been the Pop Up.
Annie, I'm sure of it.
So, Max, what are we going to do? I can't go out there and present our demo now.
It's going to look like we're copying him.
So I I hmm.
We have to do something.
Let's start with killing him.
Let me.
Oh, Annie, you look adorable.
What is this? You were just dating me so you could commit corporate espionage? Ooh, that's a little dramatic.
Nah, see, I own a software company that would best be described as fledgling.
Well, until today.
What is wrong with you? Hey, I'm not the bad guy here.
Okay? I spent the last six months busting my ass to get the Colton brothers to work with me.
And they went with Max's company because he had Liam Court.
All my work was for nothing.
Now they know how that feels.
You were just using me the whole time.
You were the one who responded to the champagne I sent over at the restaurant that day.
My only regret is that we didn't get time to get a little closer.
Excuse me.
Hey, Dixon? We need to talk.
Oh, my God! What happened? Hey, I don't know.
There's a sharp pain down my back and I can't feel my legs.
We're gonna get you to a hospital, okay? Just try to breathe, relax.
It's okay.
Lowest I can go is $800.
- $800? Ah, come on.
- Sorry, man.
- That's the gray-fur variant.
- Yeah, I know.
I've been looking for this since I was 12.
What can I say? I'm a completist.
Navid! - You're here.
- Silver.
Yeah, yeah yeah, you know me.
I'm, uh I love Phenomi-Con.
Yeah, um I was just telling Liam how much I missed comic-book Navid.
I you do? Yeah, maybe now that you're taking a day off from promoting your clubs, we could hang? Do you want to go see the Corporate Invaders screening with me? It's about to start.
Oh, no, well, I thought it was a VIP thing.
Uh, only a few guests.
It's going live on the web, too.
Oh, it's on the Internet? Mm-hmm.
Um, will you, uh, excuse me for a sec? Sure.
Is it true you're together in real life? Don't believe everything you read.
What Liam means to say is: we'll let our on-screen chemistry speak for itself.
So you two aren't really dating? He's with me.
Um, are you sure about this? Yeah, I am.
Uh, excuse me, there there has been a a huge mistake.
All right? And, uh, I need the DVD back.
Sure you do.
Wait, can you just hear me out? Okay, it is the moment that you've all been waiting for.
It is the first ten minutes of Corporate Invaders 2.
Let's hear it! Whoo! There's just a misunderstanding.
Hear me out! Hear me out! Whoa! Lindsey, wait! You taped us having sex? No, of course not.
I would never do that.
Then who did? I have no idea.
I maybe it's not that bad.
I mean, it only aired for a few seconds, - and I don't think anyone recognized you.
- Are you kidding? It was on the Internet.
The whole world's seen it.
I I have to get out of here.
- Yeah, you're right.
Let's go.
- No.
I do not want to be seen leaving with you.
Lindsey Liam, what the hell was that? Uh, apparently someone taped me having sex with my professor.
By the way, we're dating.
She didn't want anyone to know.
So much for that.
- Who would do that to you? - I don't know.
It was taken the night of the Pop Up, and I Navid? No.
No, he wouldn't do that.
So how do you feel now? Uh, okay.
Just my legs are still numb.
I don't understand.
You were getting better and then this happens out of nowhere? My back's been hurting pretty bad since the Pop Up.
Why didn't you tell me? I haven't been taking my pain pills.
Dixon, why? Because I'm an addict, babe.
I was afraid, if I started taking them, I wasn't going to be able to stop.
Well, Dixon, I think we know what the problem is.
You have an abscess pressing on your spinal cord.
- An abscess? - It's not uncommon when you're still healing from a trauma.
You'll be in the hospital for a few days, but assuming we can get the infection under control, you'll be fine.
You must have been in tremendous pain.
Get some rest, okay? So that's why you snapped at me that night? You were in pain and you were trying to hide it.
I'm sorry.
I thought it was me getting in the way of your career.
Look, the only reason why the Pop Up was so important to me is because I didn't want to let you down.
I should have told you this before, but after the accident, when I woke up in the hospital, the first thing I saw was you holding my hand.
And I knew right then and there that I didn't deserve you.
So I promised myself that I would earn my second chance.
That I'd be the man that you want me to be.
The kind of man that always puts you first.
Hey, babe.
It's okay.
I'm just glad you know the truth.
Hey, you in a hurry? Uh, no, I got what I came for.
Yeah, I think you did.
Look, I didn't record that video, okay? Someone gave it to me.
I I didn't want the whole world to see it.
Just you.
- Why? - Because Liam lied to you.
I wanted you to see what kind of guy he was before you hooked up with him.
Hooked up with him? What what are you talking about? Stop it, Silver.
I know you two have been getting closer.
As friends.
And the only reason he lied about his professor is because she wanted to keep the relationship a secret.
Wha wait.
They're they're together, like, for real? Yeah.
The funny thing is, Liam's the one that's been encouraging me to give you another chance, and I actually thought about it.
But after all of these years of saying you'd never get into the family business, that's exactly what you've done.
You're right.
I I really messed up.
Yeah, yeah, you did.
I don't even know you anymore.
So, Data Nitrate.
We've got big plans for the future.
Really big plans.
Plans, um, I'm quite confident that you will love.
Dude, when are you gonna show us something? Yeah, uh, well, uh, I I could show you something.
But I'm not going to, and that's because, well, I I want you to use your imagination.
Oh, my God, he's drowning.
This is a disaster.
Yep, and it's your disaster.
Excuse me? You said it yourself.
You forced Annie to date Colin, you invited him to your little hack-a-thon, and he didn't get my phone at the Pop Up, did he? No, as a matter of fact, he didn't.
He got it from removing your GPS tracking from my phone.
Oh, wow.
You brought him right in, didn't you? Did you give him Max's ATM pin, too? Wait a minute.
When you thought this was your fault, I covered for you.
I thought we were a team.
It's like I've been saying.
Max and I are a team, and you're a mistake.
And I can't wait to tell him - that this is all your fault.
- Really? Yes.
What are you doing? If I'm going down, I'm taking you with me.
Princess Leia's kicking that guy's ass.
Sorry about Colin.
Me, too.
It just sucks that I pushed away somebody I actually care about because I thought he was such a nice guy.
Oh, don't beat yourself up.
After what Navid did, I don't think there's any way to tell who the nice guys are anymore.
Riley? What are you doing here? Hey, Annie, um, look, it's about Dixon.
Um, I don't want you to worry, but he has a, uh a spinal infection.
He's gonna be in the hospital for a couple days.
We tried calling you.
I left my phone in the car.
This stupid costume doesn't have any pockets.
- Is he okay? - No, he's gonna be fine.
Yeah, I just, I thought you might want to come home, maybe need a ride.
If not, it's cool.
These Sci-Fi chicks go crazy over guys in chairs.
It's like an X-Men thing or something.
You drove all the way to Santa Barbara for me? Yeah.
What a nice guy.
Okay, what was that about there? Colin turned out to be exactly what you thought he was.
He was just using me to steal Max's software.
This is the part where you get to say, "I told you so.
" I feel like an idiot.
No, I'm the idiot.
I should have been honest with you, told you that I liked you the first time you yelled at me in the gym.
Yeah, well, um, you're not the only one who hasn't been honest.
Max, this whole thing was her fault.
She's the one who brought Colin in.
She's the reason he got access to my phone.
Only because you were tracking me.
- He was tracking me.
- That's because Stop! Stop, stop.
Okay, I don't care whose fault it was.
I really don't.
No, look, all I wanted was the two most important people in my life to get along.
When is this gonna end? It's not.
I tried.
I really, really tried.
But Alec's been conspiring to break us apart since the day we got married, and I won't be able to fight him off forever.
Eventually he's gonna win.
What are you saying? I'm sorry, Max.
You have to choose.
It's him or me.
- Did I mention I like those ears? - Naomi made me do it.
Sure she did.
- I feel ridiculous.
- Well, well.
Look who it is.
There you are.
You know what, we should just let it go.
He's not worth it.
You probably already know this about me, but, uh, not so good at letting go.
Ah, you've come to defend Annie.
How sweet.
Yeah, or not.
That was so wrong.
But you like wrong.
Hey, there you are.
Where have you been? I've been trying to call you all night.
Yeah, I I turned my phone off.
I needed some time to think.
Look, I know that things are crazy right now, but eventually, this is gonna blow over.
Maybe for you.
But even if administration doesn't fire me for being in a sex tape, how am I ever supposed to stand in front of a class full of college students again? My academic career is over.
And so are we.
Lindsey, don't do this.
I really like you, but you lead a very public life.
And even if our relationship didn't have all these other complications, it's not the kind of life I want.
How did it go? Dixon's had a setback.
He's back at the hospital for a few days.
I couldn't tell him.
You know what I think? You still love him.
I don't know.
I'm confused.
I'm not.
I can't do this anymore.
Dixon's a lucky guy.
I just hope he knows that.
What do you want? Liam, uh I I'm really sorry.
You can kick my ass if you want.
You can even tape it and put it on the Internet.
Trust me, it I would feel a lot better.
What are you doing? This is for everything that you put into the club.
Liam, please.
Hey, hey, hey, I'm sorry.
Get the hell out.
If I ever see you in here again, I will kick your ass.
Good news our lawyers our lawyers think we can hit Colin with an infringement suit.
Why is she here? Max, come on.
I know things got out of hand at Phenomi-Con.
I'm sorry.
It's too late for that, Alec.
So you're choosing her over me? Look, I asked you two to find a way to make it work.
She tried; you didn't.
Well, you can't fire me.
Not without approval of the board.
I'm not firing you.
I'm asking you to resign.
You have to buy me out.
It'll cost you a fortune.
Good thing I married well.
Alec Congratulations.
Looks like you won.
I didn't want it to be like this.
Yeah, you keep telling yourself that.
Baby, I know it's hard.
It's for the best.
It just doesn't feel that way.
It feels like our marriage just cost me my best friend.
