Felicity s04e14 Episode Script

Raising Arizona

Previously on Felicity.
- I know you.
I know how you are.
And this choice that you've made, I just I don't know if you're gonna be able to live with that.
- That wasn't very professional.
- Is that a problem? Yeah.
Well, you know what I think? I think you're great.
Thank you.
Adam, I have a boyfriend, and this really isn't a good time for me.
- I'm sorry.
I'm gonna go.
- Okay.
- Hey there.
- Hey.
Ben's still at Dean & Deluca.
Yeah, I know.
I actually wanted to talk to you, unless now is a bad time.
No.
What's up? It's about Adam.
I don't know what to do.
I've been completely avoiding him.
- Because of that kiss? - Yes.
I really like working with him.
I just don't want it to be weird.
- And it's gonna be weird, right? - It's not gonna be weird.
You need to talk to him.
Adam's a grown-up.
He'll be fine.
- You think? - Yeah.
All right.
I'm gonna talk to him.
Good.
- Okay.
Thank you.
- Of course.
I was online and they had these architectural tours of the city.
There's one tomorrow at noon.
Do you wanna go? - I'm having lunch with Zoe.
- Oh, yeah.
How's that going? It's good.
I really like her.
- Can I talk to you for a second? - Yeah.
There's another one that starts at six.
- That sounds good.
- Okay, let's do that, then.
All right.
I'm sorry about that.
I didn't mean to interrupt.
No, it was fine.
We were just talking about architecture.
It was no big deal.
- What's going on? - I've just been trying to figure out this whole pregnancy thing.
I know you have.
It's pretty screwed up, but that's not this kid's fault.
I know what it's like growing up without a dad.
I feel like I have to be there for him or for her in some way.
- Okay.
- That's it? Just okay? What am I supposed to say? It sucks.
It's the right thing to do, but it sucks.
Yeah, I know, but we're gonna get through it.
I hope so.
I just feel like it's gonna get harder.
I know, but it'll be okay, I promise.
- How can you promise that? - Because it's true.
* 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 * - Ben.
- Hi.
- Hey, Wayne.
- Hi.
Can I come in and talk to you for a second? Sure.
- Hi.
- So what's up? - Nothing.
How you doing? - I'm fat.
- No, you look good.
- Oh.
Thank you.
So, I just wanted to come and talk to you about all this.
Okay.
I know I said I didn't wanna participate, but I changed my mind.
I really think I should be a part of this.
- Really? - Yes.
- That's that's great.
- That's great, but? No, no buts.
That's Well, there actually is one.
I'm moving to Arizona next month.
- What? - My parents are there in Phoenix.
There's a lot of job opportunities for me there.
That's what I'm saying.
I'm gonna help out, so you don't need to move.
- Ben, you're 20 years old.
- I'm 21.
You're going to med school.
You don't have time to raise a baby.
And my parents are retired and they're available all day, every day.
- I just think the kid needs a dad.
- I'm not saying it doesn't.
- Am I supposed to move to Arizona? - They have schools there.
- Well, I can't.
My life is here.
- I need to do what's best for the baby.
And right now what's best for the baby is Arizona.
Hey, Adam.
Can I talk to you for a minute? - They're gonna call any second.
- Who is? The judges just decided about the library project.
- They're gonna tell us if we won.
- That's so exciting! Sorry.
Adam Davis here.
Yeah, I was expecting your call.
I see.
Okay.
No, I understand.
I appreciate it.
Thank you.
Okay.
- We got it! - No way! Yes way! Congratulations! That's so great! - Can you do this? - Can I do what? I mean, next year can you be here to help develop this thing? You mean you'd want me to help? - Yeah, if you can do it.
- I don't know.
I mean maybe.
My boyfriend's gonna be here taking a fifth year of pre-med.
- In New York? - Yeah.
- So it's perfect.
- Yeah, it kind of is.
Did you have something you needed to ask me about? Oh, yeah.
Well It was just about the kiss.
Oh.
Yeah.
- That wasn't good.
- It's just - It just can't happen again.
- Of course not.
Lxnay on the isskay.
I got it.
- Okay.
- Good.
What about Cape Cod? The beaches are incredible.
God, a weekend off? That sounds so good.
It's before the summer rush, too.
- Oh, my God.
- What? What, Zoe? What are we doing? - Pauline just walked in.
- Who's Pauline? - From work.
- You guys in a fight? - Zoe, is that you? And Noel? - Hi.
- What are you two doing? - Well, we were Discussing the Brooker account.
Noel's helping us.
I meant what are you doing under the table? Right.
He got dizzy.
- Are you okay? - It happens from time to time.
- I'll be fine.
It'll pass.
- Okay.
Well, feel better.
I will.
Thank you.
I'll see you guys at work.
- What was that all about? - Nothing.
You dove under like we were being bombed.
I just don't want her to find out about us.
She's a total rat.
She'd go straight to my dad.
So we're really not telling anyone about this.
- Are you kidding? No.
- I know your dad doesn't like me - Can we just go? - Can't we just talk about this? I don't wanna talk about it.
Let's just go.
Today we went over the three main concepts of stereochemistry: Chirality, handedness, and symmetry.
These problems overwhelm a lot of students.
Don't let that happen.
You have questions, you know where my office is.
Question? I'm fine, actually.
The upcoming lectures are based on this.
If you have a question, ask it now.
It's only gonna get worse.
It's not about the lecture.
I was wondering if you had any information on any pre-med programmes in Arizona.
I thought you were gonna stay here.
I probably am.
I just I'm looking into it.
I do know someone on the admissions committee at U of A.
But it's probably too late for next semester.
I could call and find out.
I'd appreciate that.
Thanks.
Thanks.
For if thou art in sooth what this man saith, God pity thee, Oedipus.
Thou was to misery born.
Ah me, ah me! All brought to pass, all true! O light, may I behold thee nevermore! I stand a wretch, in birth, in wedlock cursed, a parricide, incestuously, triply cursed! I'm just saying maybe next time give it a little more oomph.
- Give me something to work with.
- You know what? What? That's what acting is.
You gotta give in order to get.
Like I care about acting.
Excuse me.
Hi.
I'm Paul.
Well, I'm not really interested in dating anyone right now, Paul.
No, I'm a director.
Oh, my God.
Nice try, creepo.
He said he's not interested.
What do you mean, a director? I make commercials.
I'm here scouting for new talent.
I gotta tell you, I loved what you did with Oedipus.
Oh, thank you.
Even though the whole eye-stabbing thing was ad-libbed.
Well, it was terrific.
You would be perfect for a spot I'm doing for a mattress warehouse.
- Him? - We're looking for someone special.
- Would you be interested? - Interested? - Does Rolaids spell relief? - You're falling for this.
- I'd like you to come, too.
- What? You got a real attitude thing going on.
Yeah, that attitude says no.
- Well, it pays $3,000.
- Really? - Wait.
What about me? - You'd both be trying out.
- Against each other? - Yeah.
Unless that's a problem.
No, not for me.
Good.
Okay.
Well, here's your scripts, and I will see you both tomorrow.
- Okay.
- Okay.
- A walking tour? - Yeah.
Wow.
That guy does not waste time, does he? - Who, Noel? - It sounds just like before.
You and Felicity are dealing with stuff and, boom, he moves right in.
- He doesn't even know about Lauren.
- Guys like that can sense it.
I don't think that's what this is.
It sounds like Making Out on the Roof Part 2.
- Trevor, it's a walking tour.
- What is a walking tour? I don't know, but it's fine.
If it's fine with you, it's fine with me.
- Hey, you ready to go? - Guess what.
- What? - Adam's design won the competition.
- What? - Can you believe that? - That's amazing.
- He asked me to work with him.
- I might have a job next year.
- Congratulations.
- Thank you.
- Oh, my God.
Speaking of next year, one of Ben's professors called and left a message.
He needs to talk to Ben today about some pre-med programme in Arizona.
- Arizona? - I figured you'd know what it's about.
No.
You guys are going on the walking tour? Yeah, we were just about to leave.
I'm gonna go study.
Have a good time.
I'll be right back.
So what's in Arizona? What? Noel said your professor called and left a message about some pre-med programme in Arizona.
- Noel said that? - He was just passing on a message.
Why is he telling you? Why does it matter? What is going on? Lauren's moving to Arizona.
So you're moving? No, I don't know what I'm doing.
- When were you gonna tell me? - I found out this morning.
- I haven't had time to think about it.
- But you told your professor.
Yeah, I did.
He's looking into possibilities for me.
- So there's a possibility? - I don't know.
We're gonna figure it out, okay? You keep saying everything will be okay, but suddenly you might be moving to Arizona.
- I wish he'd mind his own business.
- This has nothing to do with Noel.
This is about us.
Ben Adam won that competition.
He wants me to stay next year and work on it with him.
- That's great.
- Not if you're gonna be in Arizona.
We have to talk about this.
What happens after graduation? I don't know.
- Are we gonna be together? - I said I don't know! I'm trying to figure it out.
I don't have all the answers right now! Okay.
- All right? - Yeah.
Hey.
Hey.
How was your big tour? It was pretty cool, actually.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
Next time I get a message, give it to me and not somebody else.
- What are you talking about? - Message from my professor.
I just thought Felicity would see you before I did.
- Just tell me about it next time, okay? - Sure.
What was that all about? Come in.
Close the door.
Oh, my God.
Yeah, it's a mess.
- I'm sorry.
- Thanks.
- But Noel doesn't know, so - I won't say anything.
Thanks.
Legally, you could keep her here.
- What? - Fathers have rights.
Am I supposed to get into some legal battle with her? Yes.
- I don't wanna do that.
- What do you wanna do? I have no idea.
You don't wanna hear this, but Santa Fe is supposed to be beautiful.
Yeah, that's New Mexico.
Aching back? Sleepless night? Then come to Loony Larry's for our super firm, super comfy and super cheap mattresses.
If you're not sleeping like a baby, your money back, guaranteed.
We have the best deals in town.
No interest, no payment, no money down.
Your lumber will love Loony Larry! - That was so good.
- It's lumbar, not lumber.
- That's what I said.
- Okay.
- Isn't that what I said? - Why don't you just try it again? You're not gonna do the whole thing like that, are you? - Like what? - Never mind.
Okay, I know what you're trying to do, Miss Suddenly I'm A Big Actress.
I don't know what you're talking about.
Your mind games are not gonna work.
- Relax, Javier.
- No, she should relax! - She's trying to steal my dream.
- I'm not trying to steal anything.
- You don't even care about acting.
- No, but I care about the $3,000.
$3,000? - Maybe I should audition.
- You now too? Fantastic.
- A real friend would drop out.
- A real actor wouldn't care.
Okay, that's it! This actor is going to nail that audition.
Wow, that is a dream.
Just don't come crying spilled milk to me when you don't get the part.
Don't worry.
When this is over, the only one that'll be crying is you.
I was going through some stuff.
There's some books you should look at.
What? I don't think I'm gonna be able to do this with you.
Oh, no.
It's not the kiss, is it? I told you I won't do that again ever.
No, it's not the kiss.
I just don't know where I'm gonna be next year.
I thought you were gonna be here with your boyfriend.
I know.
So did I.
But it turns out that he might not be.
Does he know what a big deal this is? He has kind of a big deal of his own.
So why does his big deal trump your big deal? I don't know.
It just does.
I'm sorry.
Am I prying? Dina says I pry too much.
No, it's fine, it's fine.
I really wish you could do this.
So do I.
- Hi.
- Hey.
How's it going? - Good.
So I talked to Pauline.
- Who? - Pauline, from lunch.
- Oh, right.
How is Pauline? I wasn't sure if she believed our story, so I just clarified it a little.
- I think she's convinced.
- I was thinking about this.
I think the smartest thing would be to tell your dad.
- No, that is not happening.
- Why? - Because.
- He'll find out eventually.
Don't you think he'd rather hear it from us than Pauline? I don't want him to hear it from anyone.
I don't understand.
Look it's not just my dad, okay? - Fine.
What else is it? - Can we not talk about this right now? I don't wanna be in a relationship you gotta hide from everyone, do you? - No.
- Okay.
So what is it? Look, I don't think this is gonna work out.
What? You and me, it's just - This was obviously a mistake.
- A mistake? Zoe.
I'm sorry.
- Professor Hodges.
- Yes.
Okay.
- I'm sorry.
- You got my message? - Just that you called.
I spoke to my colleague at U of A.
- The deadline was last month.
- It was? But she said she'd consider your application as a favor to me.
But only if I can fax her your transcript and a letter by tomorrow.
- By tomorrow? - She's going on a lecture tour until the end of the summer.
I haven't had a lot of time to think about this.
I understand, but it's a big favor.
So I don't wanna ask her unless you're certain.
Of course.
It's just I honestly don't know.
It's happening so fast.
I'm sorry.
There's nothing I can do about that.
Okay.
Thank you.
That's a lot of pressure.
I'm sorry.
I was thinking you could wait until next year to move.
- Ben.
- I could take classes at night.
I've got everything worked out: A job lined up, a pediatrician.
- There are doctors here, jobs - It's not that simple.
You said you wanted what's best for the kid.
I do.
Isn't it best for the kid's parents to live in the same state? I'm I'm sorry.
I'm really sorry.
But I'm moving.
Fine.
You wanna go to Arizona, go to Arizona.
- Looking for Ben? - Yeah.
He's not here.
- What are you doing? - Nothing.
- Can I join you? - Yeah.
So what's wrong? - Zoe broke up with me.
- Why? What happened? I don't know.
I thought she liked me, but I guess I was wrong.
You okay? What is it? Nothing, I'm just Oh, God.
What? I'm just going through kind of a hard time right now.
- Is it Adam? Something happen? - No, no.
What? What is it? Ben got Lauren pregnant.
Oh, my God.
And she's gonna move to Arizona and he might go with her.
I'm so sorry.
I just don't know what to do.
It's just I know.
I know, I know.
It's okay.
Hey.
Unbelievable.
Oh, my God.
You should go talk to him.
What the hell is that? What's going on? What do you mean? Every time something goes wrong, you run to him.
I didn't run to Noel.
I came here to talk to you.
- It didn't look like it.
- We were just talking in there.
What were you talking about? Me and Lauren? This is really hard for me.
- You won't talk to me.
- What a bunch of crap! - He was making me feel better.
- I bet he was.
- This has nothing to do with Noel.
- Are you kidding me? If you hadn't slept with him, none of this would have happened.
You're blaming Whoa, no.
You're blaming me for this? If you hadn't cheated on me, I never would have been with Lauren.
- No one forced you to sleep with her.
- No one forced you to sleep with him.
Oh, my God.
You're never gonna get past that, are you? I guess I'm not gonna get over it, so why don't you just go be with him? 'Cause I'm sick of this.
- What are you doing? - I'm looking at these books.
- I really like this one.
- Schindler.
He's one of my heroes.
- Cheesy puff? - No, thanks.
If I were to change my mind about working with you - You changed your mind? - Yeah.
Would it be too late? - Are you kidding? No.
- Good, because I really want to.
Can I pry? Sure.
I'm just wondering, did something happen with your boyfriend? Yeah, we sort of broke up.
Wow.
I'm sorry.
Yeah.
Thanks.
Do you wanna talk about it? I give really good break-up advice.
I have plenty of experience.
Not right now, but I will keep it in mind.
Well, at least you're doing your big deal now and not his.
That's gotta be a good thing, right? Yeah, actually, it is.
You wanna talk at this thing or should I? - You should.
I'm not going.
- What? - I'm gonna go home and work there.
- What's going on? - I just don't wanna see Zoe right now.
- Why not? - Because we broke up.
- What happened? We were just talking about her father and that was it.
What does that mean? She said she didn't think it was gonna work out.
Wow.
Sorry.
I really thought she liked you.
I know.
I thought she liked me to, but - You two coming to the meeting? - I got that dizzy-ish problem again.
I'm gonna get outta here.
I'll talk to you later.
- All right, I can't take it any more.
- No one's forcing you to do it.
Not the audition.
This, us.
It's so dumb.
I was thinking about that guy Oedipus last night.
He had problems.
We don't.
This is a commercial for mattresses.
- So what are you saying? - I'll drop out if you want me to.
- This is more of your mind games.
- No! Okay.
Why don't we do this? We both try out and whoever gets the part has to take the other to dinner.
Deal.
Just remember, it's lumbar, not lumber.
- Can we hug now? - No.
Okay.
So what happened to Noel? Nothing.
He just had some stuff to take care of.
Oh.
Okay.
- So he's all right? - Yeah, fine.
Good.
Look, Zoe, I know it's none of my business, but Noel's a really great guy.
- Yeah, I know.
- One of the best guys I've ever met.
- Yeah, I know.
- Okay, well If you do, then I'm a little confused.
He said that you're calling things off? - Sean, it's complicated.
- Is it your father? Is that what it is? I really don't wanna talk about this.
One last thing, and trust me on this.
If you let Noel go, you're gonna be sorry.
- He's not here, is he? - No, he's not.
I just wanted to get a few of my things.
Sure, yeah.
- You okay? - I don't know.
Does he really think there's something going on between us? I don't know.
I just I don't think he's gonna get past what happened.
I'm just picking up some of my stuff.
This is ridiculous.
Can I talk to you? No, I don't wanna hear it right now.
- You don't have to say anything.
- There is nothing going on between us.
If you think there is, then you're wrong.
God, she loves you.
She loves you.
Not me.
I have relationship problems of my own.
I don't need to be a part of yours.
You guys love each other.
You should be together.
Just work it out, okay? Please.
Do you want me to go? You can do whatever you want.
Okay.
Wait.
Wait.
I shouldn't have said what I said.
Obviously what happened with me and Lauren wasn't your fault.
It was my fault.
I was angry.
I'm sorry.
Ben, you have to know, there is nothing going on between me and Noel.
I made a horrible mistake, but it will never happen again.
- I know.
- But do you really know that? Yeah.
Then why did you get so angry? I don't know.
Things are just so crazy right now.
I feel like I'm drowning, and I feel like I'm pulling you down with me.
The thing is, I Sometimes I think you should be with somebody else.
Sometimes I think you should be with Noel.
Ben, Ben, I wanna be with you.
I wanna be with you too.
Ben.
I was wondering if you would come to Arizona with me.
I've been thinking about that too.
I just can't do that.
I just feel like I need to find my own direction now.
I need to find out what my life is.
But I wanna find that with you.
There's gotta be some way we can do this.
- That is hideous.
- That is hideous.
- She knows it.
I know it.
- Tell him that is hideous.
- Hi.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Can I Can we talk? I'm gonna go to the kitchen and get some more of those little waffle things.
So what's up? I'm gonna tell you the truth, which is that my father doesn't hate you.
He's just protective.
Why? It's not like I'm gonna do anything.
Actually, none of this has anything to do with you.
Okay, so what is it? It's me.
I've just I've been going through a really hard time.
For about three years.
What happened? - It's gonna sound stupid.
- No, it won't.
I fell in love with someone who was in love with someone else.
- See? It's stupid.
- No.
That's not what I was thinking, believe me.
I just I got really depressed and I ended up in hospital.
I mean, I'm fine now, but That's why my dad acts the way he does.
He's just worried about me.
- I'm sorry.
- I should have told you before, but I thought once I did, you wouldn't wanna see me any more.
Why? Why would you think that? I don't know.
It's embarrassing.
No, it's not.
I know more about this than you think I do.
Yeah? Yeah.
Noel, Mr Webb wants Oh, sorry.
So I guess we have to tell my dad.
- Is that okay? - Yeah.
Good.
"Then had I never come to shed my father's blood nor climbed my mother's bed" - So? - So what? So, did they call to say you got the part? - Wait.
Didn't they call you? - Why would they call me? - Because.
- Because why? - Because you were supposed to get it.
- What are you talking about? - I flubbed my line on purpose.
- What? I wanted you to get it, so I said lumber every time.
We are such idiots.
For your information, I think that was a really sweet thing for me to do.
Yeah, except I messed up so that you would get the part.
Oh, my God.
Just got a chill.
That's the sweetest thing I've ever heard.
This is what I'm saying about acting: You give to the other person and look what you get.
Nothing.
Neither of us got the part.
No, but we got a real friendship.
- Don't hug me.
- Come on.
- Hi.
- Wow.
It's becoming a habit.
- Can I talk to you? - Come on in.
No, thanks.
Okay, what is it? There are a lot of good reasons for you to move to Arizona, but I really think you should reconsider one last time.
I'm trying to be reasonable, I am, but I do have some rights here.
- What? - Legally, I could try to keep you from going.
- Oh, my God.
- I don't wanna do that, I really don't.
But this is my kid too.
Like it or not, I'm part of this now.
I'm involved.
You've made all these decisions without me.
You can't do that any more.
Okay.
Okay what? - Okay, I'll think about it.
- Good.
