Hey, for once we don't open an episode with Felicity making a tape! Knoll is lying on a couch, telling someone about his problems. He's doing the whole "a friend of mine has this problem" thing that hasn't worked since The Brady Bunch. Knoll explains that there's a guy on his floor who really likes this girl, but that she keeps coming to him to talk about another guy. A voice suggests that Knoll's "friend" has that "nice guy friend" thing going on. Knoll says that the guy swears there is a spark there, but that he can't make it happen. Another voice says that this RA meeting is supposed to be about the new fire code. See what they did there? With Knoll lying down and the off-screen voice, you thought he was talking to a counselor or something. Unfortunately, Toni Pavone doesn't appear this season. Some guy tells the fire code girl to chill out. Marissa Ribisi doesn't understand Knoll's "friend's" problem. Knoll says that his friend doesn't know what to do. Marissa suggests that his friend "draw the line." And we have an episode title! The chill out guy agrees. Some other guy suggests that Knoll's friend say, "I like you, but I don't want to be your girlfriend. I don't want to talk to you about this other guy anymore. So, stop it! Stop talking to me about this other guy!" Knoll looks around, and everyone seems to agree with this advice.
So now we get Felicity making the tape. Felicity tells Sally that "buttinsky" is a weird word, and that it's actually in the dictionary. Felicity reads the definition -- "a troublesome meddler" -- but I'm sure you all know what it means. Who hasn't heard that word before? I guess Felicity really did lead a sheltered life. Felicity realizes that she is a buttinsky, and that it's ruined her whole life.
FVO continues over scenes of Felicity working at Dean & Deluca. FVO explains that she looked up and saw Ben walking down the street. We see Felicity smiling at Ben, but he ignores her and keeps walking. Felicity tells Sally that she is "a troublesome meddler"; she adds that Ben is still mad at her for rewriting his essay, and that she doesn't think he'll ever forgive her.
Elena's on hold with financial aid. When she hears a knock at her door, she stuffs a bunch of paperwork under her pillow before answering. Blair appears with a box, and she tries to get rid of him. He hands her a record that she's been looking for, and she's excited but admits that she doesn't have a record player. Blair reveals that he has one in the box, and tells her that he bought it used, so she shouldn't worry about the cost. Elena tells him that she really can't accept it. Blair theorizes that she doesn't like bald guys, and says that he might grow hair for her. Just then, someone picks up the phone, and Elena asks the person to hold. She tells Blair that she can't accept his gift because she doesn't know whether she's staying at school. Blair wonders what she's talking about, as she pushes him out the door. Elena promises to call him later.
