Oh, my God.

- Shh! I'm freaking out, man.
He could come in and rip your throat out.
He's not gonna rip my throat out.
I would.
If you'd slept with my woman, forget about it.
- Say hello to your grave.
- Right.
I think he saw me.
Okay, can you just hand some of these out for me? Man, seriously, just come stay at my place.
For your own safety.
No, I'll find something.

It's actually edgy yet professional.
- Yeah, thanks.
- Ben hasn't told you yet? - Shut up.
- He'll find out.
- Find out what? - You want me to kill you? - I'll tell him, if you want.

- Explain what? - Say it.
The suspense is killing us.
Okay.
I slept with Felicity.
- You what? - You slept with Felicity? - Are you serious? - When? - Does Ben know? - Relax.
Give the man some room.
Yes, Ben knows.
I told him.
You told him? - And he didn't hit you? - That's what I keep saying.
- You gotta be careful.
- Stop it.
I'm going to work.
I know this is gonna cause tension in the house.
- You think? - So I'm looking for a new place.
I'll be out as soon as I can.
I'd take his room in a heartbeat, except my parents won't let me live off campus.
Great.
Yeah? What's up? Uh, I just heard about Felicity, you know.
And, you know Yeah.
If you want to talk or hang out I'm all right.
I got a lot of studying to do.
My mom's in town, so - Really? - Yep.
She's here to see my dad.
Oh, that's great.
Yeah, it is.
I mean, that they're talking.
Look, if you, uh If you change your mind, wanna grab a beer, whatever.
I appreciate that, Sean, I really do.
Thanks.
Yeah.
- You slept with Noel.
- Oh, my God.
Everybody knows? - This is horrible.
- Oh, no, it's not horrible.
It's about time.
Sorry.
Hey, are you okay? Don't worry.
I know all about it.
Ben won't even talk to me.
- Why? Because of this? - It doesn't get much worse than this.
Uh, yeah.
Sean lost a testicle.
Oh, please, I'm eating.
- Are you gonna get back together with Noel? - No, I want to be with Ben.
You will be.
He needs time to cool down.
Yeah.
It's like, the one time that I cheated on a boyfriend well, the one time I got caught he was mad at me all summer.
But when I got to eighth grade, he was all mine.
He was hot, too.
What was his name? Meghan? Sorry.
Anyway, I came over 'cause I thought maybe you'd want some female solidarity.
- You want me to sleep over? - No, that's okay.
Don't worry about it.
Okay? Ben loves you.
And you love him.
You followed him all the way to college.
It's like a fairy tale.
It'll work out.
When you're the most romantic one in the room, I know we're in trouble.
I know you're doing double-duty with your other job.
Mr.
Webb, that is one thing that you do not have to worry about.
I've given notice at the university, and no matter what's going on in my personal life, I guarantee you that Webb Group Graphics is number one.
That's good to hear.
I'm gonna put you on Emily's Bat Mitzvah.
- Great.
I love bat mitzvahs.
- No, it's a band, not an event.
Right.
Right.
We're packaging the CD.
See Dave in Publicity.
First desk by the Ping-Pong table.
Then talk to Zoe in Print Media about the ads.
Okay, uh, Dave in Publicity, and then Zoe in Print Media, yeah.
- Yeah, I'm all over it.
- Who's all over me? Oh, Zoe, this is Noel.
I'm gonna put him on Emily's Bat Mitzvah with you.
I hope you have ideas, because I have none.
- Welcome to the team.
- Thanks.
Thanks.
Come find me.
Bye, Dad.
- She's your - Daughter.
- Yes.
- Wow.
She seems great.
- Let's get to work, Noel.
- Okay.
Great.
I'm on it.
- Hey, Felicity.
Can I talk to you for a sec? - Yeah, sure.
- I'm having a problem with my midterm project.
- That was due last week.
That's my problem.
I didn't get mine in.
I was hoping for an extension.
Otherwise, I take an F.
Then I'm not eligible for the hockey team.
We had this away game last week.
Coach told us to focus on the game.
I completely forgot about the midterm project.
So what do you say? Um, yeah, sure.
Excellent.
Thank you.
Thank you.
Okay, so the R group attacks the carbon and forms carboxylic acid.
What? Nothing.
I just can't believe you can concentrate.
Well, it's due tomorrow.
- Sulfuric acid reeks.
- I'm gonna take off.
It's not that bad.
Uh, we're done.
Ben figured it out.
- No way.
- Yeah.
Wasn't that hard, actually.
- All right, man.
See ya.
- Bye.
Just so you know, he's dying inside.
- It's not the kind of thing a guy can get over.
- Like it's easy for girls? Well, it's not nearly as bad.
Oh, my God.
I hate that double standard.
A guy cheats, and it's no big deal.
A girl cheats, and it's the end of the world.
Okay, look.
The two are totally different.
When a guy cheats, it's just sex.
It doesn't mean anything.
For girls - For girls it's just sex, too.
- No, it's about emotions.
- When a girl cheats, it means more.
- I've cheated.
It means nothing.
Okay.
All right.
Fine.
When a guy and girl cheats, it's exactly the same thing.
- Yeah, it is.
- Okay, great.
- Can we go over this now? - Yeah.
Hey.
I just wanna come get my stuff.
Okay? - There's - No, I got it.
You know where my green sweatshirt is? - It wasn't in there? - No.
Um, maybe it's in the, uh I'll just check and see.
Here's your key.
Oh.
Sorry.
You want some ice cream? Yeah, so that's the living room.
Um, these are the bedrooms back here.
This is, uh, my room.
Right in here.
- Honey, it's, it's great.
- Yeah, it's all right.
Oh, wow.
Who did that? Uh, Felicity did that.
Oh, you know, I just saw her mom at yoga class.
- She was telling me how passionate - What do you want to do? Go for a walk? Get something to eat? Um, you know, actually, I'm just gonna get back to the hospital.
- Really? - I told Dad I'd be back by 3:00.
Okay.
You heard he's back on the transplant list, right? No, I didn't know that.
Th-That's great news.
Yeah, it happened yesterday.
Doctors got together and decided he was strong enough.
That's great.
I'm hoping he'll be healthy enough to take home in a couple weeks.
You're gonna take him home? Well, as soon as they let me.
Sure.
For how long? Till he gets a transplant? No, I'm I'm hoping longer than that.
You guys are getting back together? Yeah, I think so.
Mom.
Ben.
I know it's it's hard.
Yeah, well.
I mean, I understand if it's what you want, but I gotta tell you, it makes me very, very nervous.
It is what I want.
It's just, after all we've been through together, - he's a part of me, you know? - Yeah.
It's not easy to let go.
I know.
Hey.
Hi.
I know you don't want to see me.
Uh, and I keep telling myself I need to respect that.
I wasn't gonna do this, but I couldn't help it.
Just take it.
- Hey, thanks a lot.
- Excuse me? Midterm grades are posted.
I got an F.
Did you ask for an extension? You asked me about that yesterday, didn't you? Uh, yeah.
Nick, I am sorry.
I've had so much going on.
Look, I don't care about your problems.
Okay? I'm on athletic scholarship.
If I get kicked off the team, I'm out of school.
- I'll take care of it.
- You said that last time.
I'll talk to Professor Cavallo today.
Well, okay.
You were listening this time, right? Yes, I was.
No worries.
I have nothing better to do with my time than to wait for you.
Oh, check this out.
You finally did some work on your own? Yeah.
It is the evolutionary theory of gender relations.
It's about how men and woman are different when it comes to sex.
- And you're just figuring that out? - Listen to this.
"Males who fertilize the most females, win.
Therefore, they should share their sperm with as many mates as possible.
" You see? Guys can't help but fool around.
We're wired that way.
- We gotta spread the seed.
- No, you don't.
"In contrast, the female's strategy is more selective.
She shops for a mate who can protect her.
" That's why women pick such protective and caring guys.
Yes! "This may be why the female brain produces oxytocin, which is responsible for a woman's desire to snuggle and be held close after lovemaking.
" I hate snuggling, and I don't care what that article says, cheating doesn't mean more to women than it does to men.
This is medical science you're arguing with.
I'm not arguing with anyone.
Where are you going? We gotta do this lab.
Since you know so much about science, why don't you figure it out? Well, um No, but Damn.
Hey, what are you still doing here? Oh, hey, I'm just I'm just working on the CD cover.
- It's still really rough, though.
- No, it's great.
- Thanks.
- I like it.
- I was just about to do that.
- It's a little too - Biblical? - Exactly.
- Yeah.
It's only your second day here.
You should go home.
I mean, unless you're a workaholic, like I am.
Yeah, no, I am, too.
Uh But I should, um, I should finish this.
- Okay.
- All right.
Before you do, do you want to get something to eat? I'm gonna be here late, too, and I'm dying for a pizza.
You know what? You're right.
You're right.
I should, um I should go home.
And I'll get this stuff to you tomorrow.
- Okay.
- Okay.
But if you change your mind, - I'll be here.
Slaving.
- Yeah, sure.
This is good, right? You're relaxing, throwing back a few, got your posse with you.
And you're taking out a little aggression.
- Sean? - What? If I'm talking too much, tell me.
- You're talking too much.
All I'm saying is, you needed to get out.
- I know what he needs.
- I don't need anything.
A blonde, brunette, or redhead, preferably 5'10" and hot.
I'm gonna get another beer.
Want another? - Yeah.
- Me, too.
- You sure? - I only had one.
All right.
Nothing's going on? - We're working on a CD cover.
- Keep it that way.
The boss's daughter is not a line you want to cross.
I speak from experience.
- Oh, crap.
- What? - Just be cool.
I got your back.
I gotta use the little boy's room, so you know where to find me.
I hope you like pepperoni.
Oh, my God.
You, you're my hero.
One second! Tammy, you said that five minutes ago.
- It's Gaby.
- Sorry.
I just need to Is that Ben's sweatshirt? This? No, I've had it for years.
- Gaby.
- What? You think these are your pants, too? I don't think that's your sweatshirt.
It has a bleach stain on the back like Ben's.
- Oh, gross.
- Yes.
- It's not mine.
- Thanks.
He really wants it back.
Oh, by the way, we're out of toilet paper.
Who are those girls? - Good.
You got my message.
- Yes.
Here.
- Thank you.
- Whatever.
And here's the sweatshirt.
- This? - It's his favorite.
I'd take it to him, but I can't see him again.
There's literally hatred in his eyes.
Thank you for doing it.
I cannot wait to give him this and a piece of my mind.
- Meghan, I appreciate that - No, no.
I'm doing it for me.
I'm sick of this.
- He's gonna think that I sent you.
- He won't.
Not after I get through with him.
Just give him the sweatshirt and don't say anything.
Fine.
Thank you.
Oh, good.
More toilet paper.
Ah, no, no.
This roll is for her, not for you.
Or your little playmate.
If either of you uses a square to pick your nose, you'll regret it.
Okay.
- I remember that.
- What? Nothing.
- Thanks for bringing this.
- You're welcome.
- I like that one.
- You do? Yeah, that one's definitely the best.
I designed that one.
- Really? - Yep.
- It's great.
- Thanks.
It's nice here late at night, isn't it? Yeah.
Yeah, it's quiet.
Sometimes, when I don't want to be in my apartment, I come here and hang out.
That sounds good.
It's like an escape from the real world.
Look at that! No, the top button.
- Yeah, there you go.
- There you go.
- There it is.
- This is fun.
- You having fun? - Yeah, I'm having fun.
Good.
There you go.
You having fun now that I passed you? - Hey.
- Here's your ugly-ass sweatshirt.
- Thank you.
- Don't thank me.
Thank Felicity.
If it was up to me, it'd be in the incinerator.
- Meghan - I'm giving Ben a piece of my mind.
- I don't want to hear it.
- You won't talk to her? It's moronic.
- I don't have to listen to this.
- Don't listen to me or Felicity.
Walk around with your fingers in your ears.
- Nice.
- Shut up.
Look, Felicity loves you.
She really She loves you so much it's disgusting.
I'm serious.
If I think about it too long, it makes me want to barf.
The least you could do is talk to her.
Just hear what she has to say.
Okay, fine.
Do what you want.
Okay, what's wrong? - Nothing.
- You're cleaning the kitchen.
Something must be wrong.
I can't believe you're taking her side.
She's my friend.
She cheated on her boyfriend with her best friend.
That's doesn't bother you? In the greater scheme of things, no.
- Now you're defending her? - No, I'm just not judging her.
- You think it's okay to cheat? - I think it happens.
I can't believe I'm married to a person who thinks someone can cheat, and it's okay because "it happens.
" - This is stupid.
- Now I'm stupid.
No, this.
We're fighting.
We don't even have a problem.
This isn't even about us.
- You're right.
- I am.
- I'm sorry.
You're right.
Sorry.
Hey.
- Sorry.
- Hey.
Um So what does she want to talk to me about? There's a couch back here.
- Dad? - What? Ah, Mr.
Webb.
Hi.
Uh, we were Uh I was just, uh - We thought you left.
- Yeah, we thought you left.
I mean, that's not why We were working on the CD cover, on the project together.
- It's almost done.
- Yeah.
It's good.
- You'll like it.
- I don't think so.
Maybe you won't like it.
But I don't care, 'cause I'm firing you.
- You're firing me? - Dad, come on.
You're lucky that's the only thing I'm gonna do.
I tried everything.
I told him about your eligibility, your scholarship.
He won't listen.
Hey.
Whoa, you're big.
- What are you doing here? - He's changed his mind.
- Cavallo? - No, Ben.
- A friend.
- He's meeting you for dinner.
- Are you kidding me? - No, he wants to talk And he is not just a friens, he's the love of her life.
- I didn't know that existed.
It does.
It's kinda gross, but it does.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
Hey, Dad, how you doing? Is your mother here? No, she went to get something to eat.
You need something? Some water.
- Okay, I'll get it.
- Thanks.
Did she tell you about the transplant list? - Yeah, she said you're back on.
That's great.
- Yeah, thanks to you.
She also says you two might be getting back together.
She did? - What, it's not true? - No, no, it is.
It's I'm surprised that she said something.
She was worried you'd be upset.
Are you? I wouldn't say I'm upset.
But I am worried it's gonna be the same crap all over again.
I still love her, Ben.
Okay, um, so this, and then, yeah, okay.
So So that, uh, magnesium metal and dry ether gives you a Grignard reagent.
Exactly.
- Thank you.
- Why? You did all the work.
When I did the work, I got a C-.
- That's why I had to grovel for help.
- I did not make you grovel.
- Uh, yeah, you did.
A little.
- No.
- Can I ask you something? - Yeah.
It's about your wedding.
Was it called off because you cheated? No, um We called it off because - It's hard to explain.
- Right.
- Your poor fiance must've been shattered, huh? - We both were.
Yeah.
Well, he had it worse.
- Oh, my God.
Not that again.
- No, no.
No, no, no.
It's just Well, you know, because he lost you.
* I hear them coming * * The blue parade * * They're throwing snowflakes * * And singing my name * * In deep blue voices * * I hear them say * * There's good love out there * * Just you wait * * Hold on, I'm coming * - Hey.
- Hi.
How are you doing? I'm okay.
A little wet, but Yeah, it's supposed to be like this all week.
Yeah.
Hi.
Can I get you two something to drink? Maybe some wine? - No, I'm all right.
- No.
What do you want to say? I mean, now that I have you here, of course, I don't know It's just hard to know where to start.
Can we just sit and talk for a bit? I didn't come all the way here to talk.
What do you have to say? Okay.
I wish I could take it back.
I wish I could make it so it didn't happen.
Because I don't know what I was thinking.
I was going through that stuff with my dad, and It just happened.
Noel and I were on the roof.
I was really upset, and I- I'm sorry.
This is just too weird.
I really gotta go.
Ben, wait! Ben, I love you.
I'm really starting to hate that word.
The way people use it, like you and my dad.
Like you say it, and it makes everything better and everything goes away.
- Just tell me what I can do.
- You've already done it.
Honestly, I've really tried to understand why you do this.
Every time I think about it, about you and Noel - If you could only understand - I'm sorry.
I just I can't do it right now.
I just can't.
I was just leaving the studio, and I saw you.
I'm just taking care of some stuff.
- When do you start your new job? - Oh, yeah.
That didn't exactly work out.
I'm sorry.
I know you were excited about it.
It's okay.
You know, I mean, I've still got this, right? Which is good.
It's a backup.
It's good to have a backup.
Noel, it's gonna take me a long time to understand why you told Ben.
Me, too.
Why did you? I don't know.
I mean, it's like I keep doing these things where the whole time I can hear myself saying, "Stop.
" But I don't.
It's weird.
Well, I'm gonna go.
I just I just wanted to say hi.
Hi.
Hi.
Hey, I'm, uh I'm looking for an apartment.
I haven't found one yet, but I will.
I'll be out soon.
- I thought you should know.
- Okay.
How's your dad? Uh, he's better.
Good.
That's good to hear.
Yeah, thanks.
She used to cut his hair, too.
I suppose it was to save money, but I don't know, I think she just wanted to be close to him.
Man, I do, I want to forgive her.
Your mother? No, Felicity.
But I don't know.
I don't know how.
I'm just I'm not like my mom like that.
* I'm standing on the edge * * I'm trying to find my way to you * Dear Ben, I dreamt once that I lost you.
We were on icebergs.
And I can't remember if you were floating away from me, or I was floating away from you.
But I remember waking up beside you.
It was the middle of the night, and it was raining, like tonight.
And I heard your breathing, calming me.
It was like we could speak without words.
I wonder how and when we learned it, this secret language.
I only know that, at some point, in the silences, I heard you.
And now I'm left with words, these useless words, when all I want is to be beside you again.
To make you feel safe.
To help you sleep.
To bring you back to me.
* I just wanna feel * * Feel live again * * I just wanna feel * * I just want you feel * * Feel live again *
