Julie (gack!) plays her guitar in the lounge as Felicity walks in. Felicity asks whether Julie is okay. Julie starts to explain about seeing Krakow's movie, and then says that she hasn't seen Ben since the laundry-room discussion. Felicity says that she doesn't have to explain, but Julie kindly says that she knows Felicity was wondering. Felicity admits that she was. Julie goes back to the Krakow story, explaining that she gave her opinion and that Krakow got mad. Felicity says that Julie was just giving her opinion, but Julie thinks that she might have been a little harsh. Julie asks Felicity whether she's okay. Felicity leans forward and says that Knoll kissed her. Julie already knew, because Meghan told her, and asks what it means. Felicity says that they are going on a "maybe date" to discuss it. Julie giddily asks whether Felicity likes him, and Felicity says that she does, but in that "best guy friend way." Julie can't believe that Knoll kissed her, and they giggle. Felicity says that she's going to have to let him down tonight, and hopes they can still be friends. Julie says that she's somehow managed to avoid giving that speech. Felicity asks how, and Julie says that she usually dates them all until they break up with her, which sounds harder, "but it's actually a pretty efficient system." Felicity mulls that over.
Ben gets his mail from his box, as Julie greets him. Ben asks whether she got his message, and Julie replies, "Which one?" Wow, that was kind of mean. Ben reminds her that there's something going on after tryouts tomorrow; the team is going to some bar, and he thought Julie might be interested. Ben asks whether Julie is interested -- if she likes him -- and wishes that she would just tell him. Julie says that she does like him, and that she had a good time with him. Ben asks whether she had too good a time. Julie says that they both know where it would go -- they would date for a few weeks and then get tired of each other and break up, and then feel awkward around each other for the next four years. Julie suggests that they "feel awkward with the other people that [they're] going to date and break up with." Ben asks whether she's doing this because of Felicity. Julie says that she wants to keep on thinking that Ben is "a really special guy." Ben smiles. Julie says that she also doesn't want to think that Ben is pursuing her just because she doesn't return his phone calls. Ben says that she knows that's not true, and Julie brightly replies, "Now I always will."
