Felicity s04e11 Episode Script

A Perfect Match

Previously, on Felicity I think I'm just gonna go back to the hospital.
I told Dad I'd be back by 3:00.
I'm hoping he'll be healthy enough to take home in a couple weeks.
- You guys are getting back together? - Yeah, I think so.
Hey, did you ever get my message? I called you back.
Yeah, I did, I did.
I've been meaning to call you back.
I've been really busy.
I'll see you later.
- Hi.
- Hey.
Did I wake you up? Um, no.
Are you okay? Yeah, I'm okay.
I was just I was at the hospital.
I was walking home, and I just wanted to say hi.
- Um, my dad still hasn't gotten a liver.
- Ben, I'm really sorry.
Yeah, so My mom and I got tested.
I'm not a match, but she is.
- That's good, isn't it? - Yeah, it's good, but he's not letting her do it.
So, what are you gonna do for break? I'm going home.
- You are? - Tomorrow, yeah.
- Ben.
- What? What are you doing? I know you wanted to say hi, but - Do you want me to go? - No.
I just The last few weeks, you've been stopping by, calling and It's great.
I mean, I love seeing you, but it always ends with you pulling away, and then it hurts all over again.
Well, I'm sorry.
Ben, I want to be with you, and if you were to tell me today that you wanted to start over, I wouldn't hesitate a second.
But that's not what you're saying, is it? I don't know.
It's late.
I should go to bed.
Have a good break.
You, too.
* Can you become * * Can you become * * A new version of you * * New wallpaper * * New shoe leather * * A new way home * * I don't remember * * New version of you * * I need a new version of me * * New version of you * * I need a new version of me * Okay, let me ask you something.
Do we live in Indiana? - No.
- No.
Nor do we live in lowa or Montana, or one of those other heartland places where you can leave the back door open so neighbors can come by and drop off some homemade pies.
- The door was unlocked.
- Just, please, lock the door.
- What are you doing? - Just packing things up.
Ah, Benjamin stuff? - Yeah.
- Yeah.
I did that with my Samuel stuff.
Whatever you do, don't read the love letters.
You're too late.
- You know what might make you feel better? - What? Getting all dressed up and going dancing with your best friends at the Snow Ball! I got us tickets! - Javier Don't say no.
This is our last winter formal ever.
I invited everyone.
You, me, Elena, Rita.
We're gonna "trick" the light fantastic.
I can't, Javier.
I'm flying out today.
- I'm going home for winter break.
- You're leaving us? Yeah, I just need to get out of here and figure some stuff out.
- But I'm gonna be back.
- I know.
I'm just gonna miss you so much.
I'll miss you, too.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Just the man I was looking for.
- How's the graphic biz? - It's going okay.
How many clients you got? - Right now I have none.
You got one.
I was at trying to sell the gut shirts, which he didn't want, but his loss.
Turns out he's looking to expand.
I told him about your business.
He's interested.
- You're kidding.
- Nope.
We got a meeting this afternoon.
- That's great.
- Yep.
What do you mean "we"? Look, Noel, I know you want to fly this baby solo, but the truth is, 90% of business is getting business.
I've just proven that no one's better at that than me.
- What about mixing friendship and business? - No.
Nothing bonds friends like success.
- I don't know.
- What about a trial basis? We'll try it out for a couple weeks.
If you don't like the team, then, you know Hey, I got Shmeghan Shirts, all right? I'm fine.
- Okay.
- Yeah? - Yeah, we'll try it.
Good! Okay.
This is just the beginning, man.
This is gonna be huge.
I hope so.
No question about it.
Would you turn the TV off for a minute? Is there something wrong? I was gonna ask you the same thing.
What do you mean? Lauren was here.
She told me that you and Felicity are not together anymore.
If you're gonna be mad, be mad at me.
She didn't want to talk about it.
Well, it's not that.
It's not a big deal.
You have more important things to worry about.
Than my son's happiness? I don't think so.
Tell me what happened.
She cheated on me.
Oh, God.
I'm sorry.
But you still love her? Yeah, I do.
But you think she might do it again? No.
- Pride is a stupid reason not to see somebody.
- It's not that.
Then what is it? I honestly don't know.
You know, I have been lying in this bed week after week after week, and I've had a lot of time to think about things.
Mistakes that I have made.
- Dad - Ben, listen to me.
Love someone.
It's the only thing that really matters.
It's the only thing.
Andrew! Oh, Ben, you're here.
I just talked to Dr.
Allison, we're not doing that surgery.
We don't have to.
They have a liver.
It's in Philadelphia right now.
The transplant team's leaving any minute to go get it.
We got it.
You're gonna be okay! Are you kidding me? Of course it's depressing.
You're watching them without me.
The point was for us to watch this together.
Can't be that disgusting.
If you stop talking to me, I could get there a lot faster.
Okay, bye.
- That was Rita.
- The one who has a crush on you? Did have a "crunch" on me.
But I took care of all of that.
I did.
- I told her everything.
- So you're watching porno together? Okay, Miss Smarty Pants and Miss Nosey, it is not porno.
Rita and I are video mating together.
You mean video dating.
That's what I said.
- You guys, I gotta go.
- No, not yet.
If I don't go, I'm gonna miss my flight.
You can't stay one extra day and come to the dance with us? Geez, leave her alone, Javier.
She doesn't want to go.
You're gonna have fun without me.
- Have a great break.
- I'll miss you.
- I'll miss you guys, too.
- Think of us every day.
I don't do good with good-byes.
See you later.
All right.
I'll see you guys in a few weeks.
* Is this the way you want it * * Is this the way you like it * * You're turning from the inside out * * You stumble through the front door * * An early morn and I saw * * No enemies, no fears, no doubts * * And you feel * * Like traffic on the freeway * * The engine revs and there's no thrust * * And you feel * * Like static on the airwaves * * The signal's just not strong enough * * And all you need * * Is someone who can let you breathe * * Everybody needs to feel they're breathing * * All you want * * Is someone who can let you breathe * * Can't shake away this feeling * * Can't silence all the screaming * * You're crying 'cause you can't get out * - Hey, Javier.
Have you seen Felicity? - She left for the airport an hour ago.
What airport? I don't know.
La Guardia, I think.
Why? Are you going after her? You are, aren't you? That is so romantic.
- Can I come with you? - No, you can't.
I understand.
You want to be alone.
* You feel like music on the airwaves * * But the signal's just not strong enough * * And all you need * * Is someone who can let you breathe * * Everybody needs to feel they're breathing * * All you want is * * Someone who can let you breathe * * Everybody needs to feel they're * - What are you doing here? - When it snowed, - I thought you might still be here.
- My flight was delayed.
You asked me last night why I stopped by.
It's because I miss you.
I want to start over.
* And all you want is someone who can let you breathe * * And all you need * * Is someone who can let you breathe * - You're not gonna leave, are you? - No, I'm not gonna leave.
* All you want * * Is someone who can let you breathe * * - How long have you been awake? - For a while.
- It's still snowing out.
- I'm so glad.
So, what do you want to do today? Everything.
- What about you? - Well, I have to go to the hospital, but then I want to take you out on a date.
- What do you mean "a date"? - Just a date.
What? - There is this dance.
- You want to go to a dance? I know it sounds kind of stupid, but No, it doesn't sound stupid.
We can go to a dance.
- You know what else I want? - What? I want to go sledding.
I mean, Central Park is probably amazing right now.
Go away! - Please.
- It's your mom.
I'll talk to her, and then we'll go, okay? Thank you.
Aren't you supposed to be in California? He came to the airport.
Can I just say, never doubt my spells.
I won't.
I'll get the details later.
Nicely done.
What happened? - My dad's not getting the liver.
- What? Yeah, they can't get it here because of the snowstorm.
Ben, come here.
Okay, um, before we get started, guys, I want to reiterate that I got some hesitations about this so-called Web site.
It's a big step for this operation.
Eric, yesterday, didn't you say you were a dreamer? - Yeah.
- Right, right.
This is how dreams are made.
You got to think big.
Look around.
I just don't like being pushed where I don't want to go.
- We understand completely.
- Okay, show me what you got.
- You're gonna love this.
- Okay, um This is a site that I made for myself, but it gives you an idea of what I do.
You click on a building, and it takes you to that department.
- Oh, that's pretty good.
- We're the best out there.
Thank you.
I used buildings because the site's about going to school in New York.
But for you, we'd use something more sports-related.
Say, like balls.
Tennis balls, basketballs, bocce balls.
- Sure.
- Footballs.
Any You know, we could use balls.
- Baseballs.
- I don't know.
- I'm thinking I should see something first.
- Of course.
- Yeah.
- He wants to see something.
I'm gonna be upstate next week.
What about tomorrow? Can you get something to me by then? - No, tomorrow's not - Sure.
Tomorrow's no problem.
- Tomorrow's impossible.
- He was on the fence.
- It was the only way to get this job.
- The site I showed took me a month.
You know what the difference is? You got me.
- I can't believe this.
- Everything's gonna be fine.
- Blumberg-Crane Graphics is on its way.
- Blumberg-Crane? - I wanted to see how it sounds.
- It doesn't sound good.
We'll come up with something.
We're a team.
- What about Sean-Noel Graphics? - Get your hand off my back.
Hey, Mom.
Hi, honey.
You okay? Yeah? Mom, you remember Felicity? Oh, yes.
- Hi.
- It's nice to see you again.
- I wish it were under different circumstances.
- Me, too.
- How's he doing? - He's unconscious.
They hooked him up to the ventilator again this morning.
I keep whispering like I don't want him to wake up.
But I do.
I want him to wake up so badly.
I know.
- Ben, I'm just gonna go wait outside.
- No, no, no.
No, stay.
Come here.
I talked to Dr.
Ansari, and I told him I'm gonna go ahead and do it.
- You're gonna do what? - Donate part of my liver.
- Dad said he didn't want that.
- The surgery's scheduled for tomorrow afternoon.
Mom, I really don't think that's a good idea.
What other choice do we have? We could wait a little longer.
Ben, I know it's scary, but it's not your decision.
Actually, Mom, it is my decision.
He gave me power of attorney, which means I speak for him when he can't.
And I don't want you to do this.
At least talk to the doctor before you make up your mind.
He said no.
I was there.
I heard him.
Maybe you should just hear what the doctor has to say.
I don't even know what to say.
I'll go with you.
- I'll go with you, okay? - Okay.
My name is Bill.
I'm 37 years old, never married, and I enjoy bowling, movies, uh, long walks on the beach What? He was nice.
I don't like what he said.
- He likes movies and long walks.
What's wrong? - That's so cliche.
Well, cliches can be very good.
That way you know exactly what you're getting.
You're funny.
Can I point something out to you, please? This is my "yes" pile.
And this is yours.
I know.
I know.
I'm impossible.
That's why I'll be alone forever.
Are you crazy? Any guy would be a lucky duck to have you in his life.
- Really? - Yes, really.
Why don't we do this? I have so many yeses that I can't choose, and you have no yeses, so you can't choose.
So let us choose each other's dates.
- That's a good idea.
- Yes, it is.
Just don't choose Daniel for me.
He's too good-looking, I don't need trouble right now.
- Oh, I understand.
- Okay, thank you.
Which do you like better, movable or static? - Let me see it again.
- All right, movable.
- And static.
- Movable.
You don't think it's too distracting? Yeah, it's distracting.
That's why it's great.
- Good.
You used my snowboarder guy.
- Yeah.
It's a good idea.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
- Thanks.
- This is gonna work.
- I hope so.
I hope Eric likes it.
I mean you and me coming up with ideas.
It's real.
It's It's like a career.
I'm so ready for that.
Yeah, me, too.
- So, movable only? - Yeah.
Wanna talk about it? - I don't know.
This is too much.
- I know.
It is.
I can't stop thinking, even in the best-case scenario where my mom goes through with it and they're both okay, what's the guarantee? How do I know he's not gonna do it again? - Do what? - Treat her the way he used to.
She could literally give him a part of herself, and it could all be for nothing.
- How do I know that's not gonna happen? - You don't.
You just don't.
I think maybe you have to take a leap of faith.
Maybe that's what love is.
Risking a part of yourself.
Should we go back up? No, I'm gonna stay here.
I don't feel like seeing her.
- I want to think about this.
- All right.
I'll meet you up there then.
- Oh, hi, Felicity.
- I brought you some tea.
Oh, thank you.
It's chamomile.
I hope that's okay.
- It's perfect.
Thank you.
- Sure.
- Where's Ben? - Taking a walk.
He's hiding.
- He's worried.
- I know.
He wants to protect me.
He always has.
I remember this time, Ben must've been, I don't know, ten years old, and Andrew was drunk and threw a plate at me.
And he didn't mean to hit me, but, well, he really got me.
I had to have stitches.
Anyway, uh Ben was right there by my side the whole time.
You know, I kept saying to him, "It's okay.
It's okay," so that he wouldn't be scared.
But what I think he heard was, "It's okay.
This is what love is.
" It isn't.
I know that.
And this that I want to do for Andrew now, is different.
I just wish Ben could see that, but he can't.
Then, I never taught him that, did I? Oh, this is good.
- This is really good.
- Thank you.
I'm not crazy about Snowboarder Guy, though.
- Really? - I don't like him.
Snowboarder Guy goes.
Snowboarder Guy is the link to the manufacturer's Web site.
Yeah, well, he's kinda lame.
La Are you kidding? Snowboarder Guy is exactly the opposite of lame.
I mean, he makes the whole site work.
- You're shooting yourself in the foot.
- But we will trust your expertise.
No, no, this is our expertise.
Are you kidding? This is what you're paying us for, right, Eric? If you can't grasp what we're about, maybe you should go with someone else.
What could I do? He didn't appreciate our work.
- It was my work.
- What? He didn't like one aspect of it, which happened to be yours.
That's how it's gonna be? We're keeping track of who does what? No, you're keeping track.
He didn't like your idea, and you took it personally.
- I thought you liked Snowboarder Guy.
- I did.
- Really? Yes, Sean, but we needed this job.
- No, we didn't.
- What? That's what a partner like me does for you.
It gives you freedom to say no.
You don't have to listen to that bozo.
You know that I have a zillion other jobs waiting to be lined up.
- You do? - Yes.
Well, I will.
So, you don't! - I will.
- God.
I will.
Paul? - Javier? - Yes, hi.
Nice to meet you.
Ah, should we get a table? - Sure.
- Okay.
Oh, hello.
Nice mousse.
I can't believe you worked at Coney Island.
- Tenth grade.
I sold cotton candy.
- Oh, my God.
I was the first booth on the boardwalk for three summers.
High five.
Um, can you excuse me? - Sure.
- I just have to go to the bathroom.
- Hello? What is the cutoff before someone *** is technically considered a little person? Javier, I was just gonna call you.
- How's your date? - Well, he's a little enthusiastic.
How about yours? It's not.
I cut it short.
- Pun intended.
- I'm gonna do the same thing.
- Rita? - Yeah? I don't want to be alone for the rest of my life.
Any guy would be a lucky duck to have you.
- Now you're sounding like me.
- It's true.
Why don't you come over to my place.
We can trade dating stories.
It'll be fun.
- That sounds nice.
- Doesn't it? I'll see you later.
How's he doing? Okay.
Mom, are you sure you want to do this? Yes.
Okay, then, let's do it.
So, I got rid of Snowboarder Guy.
Yeah, I didn't like him.
And instead you click here, and you're back to your online catalogue.
Well, that works.
I like it.
It's good.
So, uh do we have the job? - What about the big guy? - Sean.
- Whatever.
He seems argumentative, but it's pure enthusiasm.
Ever hear the story about the swimmer who strapped a 100-pound rock to his back? - No.
- That's because the guy drowned.
You got a rock on your back.
Look, Eric.
I appreciate the advice.
But I have a partner.
If you hire me, you hire us both.
- But I'm only talking to you.
- Fine.
Okay, "some estate workers," seven letters starting with a G.
- I I don't even understand the clue.
- Yeah, neither do I.
What about this one? Twelve letters, "really bad TV show.
" Excuse me.
- Are you Ben Covington? - Yeah.
- Can I talk to you? - Yeah.
Good news.
Your father's gonna pull through.
Okay, okay.
My mom's not doing so good.
They don't know anything.
She's still in surgery.
She's bleeding, and I guess it won't stop.
Hey, man.
So, I was just picking up a plant for Ben.
- Why are you buying Ben a plant? - I'm dropping it by for his parents.
- Good idea.
- So I have no idea the name of the store that I'm in.
No logo in sight.
We're pitching them on Tuesday.
- Cool.
- Yeah.
What are you working on? I'm working on the sporting goods site.
The 8th What, are you messing around with it? No, actually I went back down and talked to Eric Scott, and I got us the job back.
- You getting rid of the snowboarder guy? - I got rid of the snowboarder guy.
- You went behind my back - It's a good thing.
That's a good thing.
That's a great thing.
That guy made me feel like an idiot.
That was embarrassing.
You know what? So what? So you were embarrassed.
I'm embarrassed all day long.
I'm a guidance counselor at the school where I just graduated with honors.
I'm not just watching these kids pass me by.
I'm helping them do it.
Look, Sean, I want to work with you.
I really do, but you're not making this very easy.
I just want to move ahead with my life.
- So do I.
- I want to be a success.
- And I don't? - It doesn't seem like you do.
I guess you were right.
Friendship can't survive business.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
I saw Sean and Trevor in the lobby.
- They want to know if they should come up.
- I don't care.
I knew this was gonna happen.
I knew it.
It's not fair.
No, it's not.
What were you guys talking about yesterday, you and my mom? She was telling me about you, when you were a little boy.
How you used to always want to protect her.
Yeah, I did a great job this time.
Ben, you did everything you could do.
She loves him.
Yeah, I know.
- Tell Trevor and Sean to leave? - Yeah.
- Okay.
- You're gonna come back, aren't you? - Of course I am.
My mom's okay.
She's gonna be okay.
- She is? - I talked to the resident.
She's in recovery.
They're both gonna be fine.
Ben, I'm so glad.
I'm so glad.
I am so hungry.
- Want to get something to eat? - Yes.
- Let's go to China Fun.
- Sounds perfect.
All right.
- Isn't there a dance you want to go to? - Yeah, but that's okay.
No, let's go.
You wanted to go.
Let's go.
- Are you sure? - Yes, I am.
Let me wait for them to bring my dad back.
Then I'll meet you there.
- All right.
I'm glad you're here.
- It's where I wanted to be.
- Hold still.
- Don't handle me.
Just do the tie.
- I don't understand why you didn't get a clip-on.
- Because guys don't get clip-ons anymore.
It's not manly.
- Hey.
You know how to tie a bow tie? - Yes.
- No, I'm fine.
- No, you're not.
We've been here 20 minutes, and I've got to do my hair.
Would you handle this? - Yes.
- Good.
I got papers for you to look over.
These are bank forms.
I opened a business account.
You need to co-sign.
- There's cash in the account.
- Yeah, we got an advance from Eric.
- Can I Should I - Yes, please, do the tie.
- If you don't want me to do it - I'm sorry.
Yes, please.
This morning, I saw a bunch of kids bumper-skiing, holding onto the - back of a car, getting pulled through the snow.
- We called it skitching.
- This job feels like I'm stealing a ride off of you.
- You're not.
This wouldn't have happened without you.
You said ninety - percent of business is getting business.
That's sales.
- Anybody can do that.
- I can't.
You're good at it.
- And I like working with you.
- You do? - Yeah.
We just need rules about business and friendship.
- Now you got rules? - Yeah.
Friendship comes first.
- Well, that's not very cutthroat.
- There.
Thank you.
Are you gonna sign the papers? Yeah.
- Why don't you come tonight? - To the Snow Ball? No.
- It's gonna be fun.
- I don't go to school there anymore.
And I do? All your friends are gonna be there.
I want to go with both my partners.
All right.
How you doing? So, Mom and I pulled a fast one on you, huh? - You do that a lot.
- Yeah.
I did listen to one thing you said.
I talked to Felicity.
I just hope we don't keep hurting each other.
You will.
That's what life does.
It tests you, but you love each other.
You'll pass the test.
Like you and Mom.
How's it going? All right.
How you doing? I'm good.
I heard your parents are better.
- Yeah.
- That's great.
Yeah, it is, it is.
Look, Ben, I'm sorry about everything that happened.
Felicity, I mean.
It's my fault, and it shouldn't have happened.
Just try and forget it.
That's what I'm trying to do.
I want to forget it.
Thank you.
- You're here.
- Hey.
Yeah, sorry.
I was with my dad longer than I thought.
- That's okay.
- Yeah.
- I'm gonna embarrass myself on the dance floor.
- All right.
- What were you guys talking about? - Nothing.
Everything's fine.
- It is? - Yeah.
You want to come dance with me? Come on.
Come dance with me.
Come on! Come dance! - I don't want to go home.
- She still has the boogie-oogie fever! - We can go to The Tunnel.
- I like that place.
- Yeah, let's go there.
- I'm craving french fries.
- When are you not craving french fries? - French fries sound good.
You know, french fries on me for everybody! - I wonder what's gonna happen.
- What do you mean? I mean, with us.
By this time next year, we could be anywhere.
What are we gonna be doing? This is like the end.
Yeah, what are we gonna be doing?
