Felicity and her father are walking near a building on campus, I guess. Dad says that they can have lunch together more often. Felicity stops walking and Dad asks her what is wrong. She says he called the Dean, even though she specifically asked him not to do it. Dad says he thinks it was pretty nice of him to call when he didn't even want her to take art classes in the first place. Felicity says, "Everything's feeling a little claustrophobic," and admits that she's not okay with him staying in NYC. Dad says that it's because the hotel is too close to campus. Felicity says it's not that, and as soon as her mom moves there they will be having weekly dinners and going shopping. Her father interrupts to say her mother is not moving there -- in fact, they are separating. Felicity looks stunned. Dad says he was supposed to wait until her mother arrived to tell Felicity. They've been talking about it for a while and then he got the offer. Felicity says, "You chose a job over mom?" Dad says, "This was your mother's decision." Felicity can't believe it and asks why. Her father says he doesn't know, and that they wanted to tell her together. I have to say, Keri Russell did a good job with this scene.
Felicity is on the phone with her mom and keeps asking how she is doing to see if she will tell the truth about the separation. In a voice-over, Felicity tells us that she doesn't know why she didn't tell her mom that she knew. Her mom was trying so hard to sound normal, it was heartbreaking. Now we see that Felicity is talking into a tape recorder, and she continues by saying that a week ago, she was home playing Scrabble with her parents, and things made sense: "Now everything feels like it's come loose, like nothing was tied down tight enough."
