Noel tells Felicity that he's glad she didn't say anything to Elena because he's seen these things turn really ugly. Felicity says that if she had never seen Blair with Tara, she probably would have become friends with Tara. Oh, God forbid Felicity become friends with someone who is morally ambiguous. Like, um, Ben in the first few seasons? He did some shady things. The elevator opens and Natasha says hello. Natasha tells Felicity that she could make a lot of money selling her hair. Felicity isn't sure if that's a compliment or what. Noel asks where they are headed, and how many trains they will have to take. Natasha says that they're going to Brighton Beach, and that her cousin has a gypsy cab. Noel gets into the elevator and mouths, "Help me!" to Felicity, who giggles.
At the loft, Julie babbles on and on about which trains she's going to take to see her birth mother, like what is with all the train talk in this episode? Did the Metro Transportation Authority subsidize it? Ben thinks Julie should take a cab, and gives her some money. Julie doesn't want to take his money, so he gives her a kiss and says that she just paid him back. Is Julie a prostitute now? That was kind of icky. Ben says he wants to wish her luck, but he doesn't know if that's the right thing to say. Julie says it will be like meeting an aunt that she's never met. She looks in the mirror and exclaims that her hair looks like crap, and starts pulling clips out, because she looks like she's twelve. You wish, Julie. Ben tells her she looks great, and should put the clips back. Julie asks Ben to come with her. Ben nods and says he will. He holds up the toaster so that she can look in her reflection and fix her hair.
Blair and Elena hang out in the lounge. Elena is wearing the hair band that she thought was a skirt, given to her by Blair. Nice touch. Felicity watches them cuddle and kiss. Blair looks up and sees Felicity staring at them. Creepy!
Noel and Natasha arrive at her family's warehouse. Natasha says that her family worries about her being alone, and she figured that if they see Noel, they wouldn't worry so much. Noel says that he is a good RA, and Natasha clarifies that she told them he was her boyfriend. Noel walks after her and asks why. Natasha says that he's a nice guy, and adds that her family constantly pages her to check on her. Pretending that Noel is her boyfriend will get her family off her back, and it will get Noel a new vending machine, so Natasha thinks it's "a win-win." Noel asks about his self-respect, and Natasha tells him that he'll get it back in an hour. Or a few seasons. Same difference.
