Previously on Felicity: at his new job, Noel played tonsil hockey with the daughter of the boss, a woman named Zoe Webb, and was summarily fired. Felicity went out with Sean "Owen" Hatosy. Lauren begged Ben to give her one night of hot loving, and who can blame her, really?
Sean, Noel, Ben, and Felicity are sitting around in the loft. Sean urges Noel to ask out their upstairs neighbor, Joanna. Noel doesn't think that Joanna was hitting on him. I guess we're supposed to realize that some time has passed since last we saw this crew, since everyone seems to be getting along just fine and Noel hasn't moved out of the loft or anything. Noel gets tired of the teasing and announces that he's going to do some work, since he and Sean are "pitching this huge account tomorrow." Felicity suggests that Noel ask Joanna out to celebrate getting this huge account. You'd think it would be weird to have Felicity discussing Noel's love life in front of Ben, but again, time has passed. I guess. Noel says he can't do that, because he's "getting [his] ducks in a row," and getting his life back in order. There is a knock at the door, and Sean jokes that it must be Joanna. Noel answers the door, and finds Lauren standing outside. Well, Noel doesn't know Lauren, so he just thinks it's some lady. Lauren asks to see Ben, and he walks over to the doorway to see what's going on. She wants to talk to him, but looks around at all of the people in the loft and suggests that it might be a bad time. Ben suggests that they step outside, which they do. Ben closes the door behind him.
Once they are in the hall, Ben asks what is going on, and if something is wrong with his dad. Lauren hesitates, and then announces that she is pregnant, and that she thinks it's Ben's baby. Ben repeats, stunned, "You think it's mine?" Lauren says definitively that it is definitely Ben's baby. Ben looks like he's about to throw up. Lauren says that she knows it's a big shock. Ben takes a deep breath and asks if she's going to keep the baby. Lauren says that she is, but that she's not asking Ben to do anything; she just thought he should know. Ben is speechless. Lauren tells him to call her if he wants to, and bails. Ben stands there, stunned, and then tries to recover before going back into the loft. When he walks in, Felicity turns her head to look at him, trying to figure out what all that was about, but no words are exchanged.
