Haven't they eaten there a million times already, why do they need to read the menus? Well, that's to give Ben enough time to get there and interrupt their date. Greg and Felicity are both stunned that Ben has shown up and Greg is more than a little pissed off. Ben blurts out, "I've got to say something, so please just let me say it. I've made a lot of, lot of mistakes. And nobody knows that more than you do. But the biggest mistake I ever made was letting you go. What I should have done is realize that being with you made me the luckiest guy on the planet. What I should have done is treat you with respect. I should have done a lot of things I didn't do. And I didn't do them because I was afraid. I was scared." Felicity points out what should be obvious to Ben, which is that she is on a date. Ben persists with, "You and I should be together and the reason I'm saying this now, the reason I'm not waiting, is because I don't want to risk losing you again and the only difference now, is that this time you're the one who's afraid." Felicity says, "I'm afraid?" Ben thinks she's afraid because she doesn't trust him anymore. Greg squeaks, "Why do you think that is, Ben?" Ben asks him for a second but Greg angrily tells him he's had his chance. Ignoring Greg, Ben continues, "Felicity, I'll do whatever it takes because the only thing I'm afraid of now is that you're not willing to take the chance too." Felicity tells him he can't "show up, and make these little speeches" because that's not how it works. She accuses him of doing the same thing last year. Ben argues that what happened last year is not the same thing. She counters, "It's exactly the same thing. I was leaving to go with Knoll, and you just show up and you make these overtures. I mean this is how you operate!" Ben pleads, "It's not how I operate, it's how I feel about you." She thinks he's not interested in her, but only in the "chase." Ben denies it but Felicity won't hear any of it. Greg has had enough and things deteriorate from there. They grapple for a bit then he slugs Ben and sends him to the floor. Felicity goes to Ben and Greg gets up and says, "We're leaving," and he walks out. Ben touches his lip and says that Greg has quite a punch. Felicity tells him he should put some ice on it, then gets up and scampers after Greg, calling for him to wait. Ben stays on the floor in shock. Maybe he'll find Felicity's brain down there because she's obviously misplaced it.
