Felicity and Ben are working at Dean & Deluca. Well, Ben is working. Felicity is talking to someone on the phone and she's all, "You deserve it!" and "Congratulations!" She hangs up, and Ben comments that he should get half of her day's paycheck, like, how long was she on the phone, anyway? Felicity explains that Noel was chosen to be part of an exhibit in the graphics department. Ben says it's great, and Felicity agrees that it's a big deal. Ben says that she must have been right when she told Noel on the phone that he is talented, and I wonder if he was listening to the whole conversation or just that part. Javier walks in and tells Ben that if he refuses to wear a hat, he has to wear a hairnet, since the Health Inspector could be there any minute. Felicity laughs, and Javier asks to speak to her in the back. Ben is upset about having to wear a hairnet.
Felicity and Javier go in the back. Javier says he has two things to discuss with her. The first is that he's giving Felicity a raise. Felicity thanks him. Javier says that it's not a big deal because the raise was either going to go to Felicity or Consuela, and Consuela is "eighty-two years old [and] can't even carry the coffee box without falling over." Felicity doesn't even know who Consuela is, so Javier explains that she was just hired yesterday, and she's a friend of his mother's. Javier brings up the second thing, and tells Felicity she can say no, but she should keep in mind that he just gave her a raise. Javier tells Felicity he would appreciate it if she would marry him. Felicity is shocked and asks him to repeat himself. Javier does. Felicity can only say, "That's what I thought you said."
Felicity sits blah blah darkened room blah blah tape to Sallycakes. She explains how she always pictured her wedding; it's the usual cliché, which she admits. Then, Felicity explains how she didn't picture it: "Me and a short, balding, Spanish homosexual filling out papers in City Hall."
In the dorm lobby, Noel goes through some work for the show with some other random guy. Felicity gets out of the elevator and walks over. Noel explains what he's doing, and adds that his brother is coming for a visit; he just called from the airport. Noel's brother had something to talk to Noel about, and Noel thinks he might have proposed to his girlfriend. Maybe. If his girlfriend's name is John. Felicity uses the mention of a proposal to try to segue into the Javier situation, but Noel is too wrapped up in himself to listen. Noel thinks his brother -- who is a big-time graphic designer -- won't be impressed by the show. Felicity tries to shore up Noel's sagging self-esteem. Noel admits that he's never shown his brother any of his work. Felicity thought they were close. Noel says that they are, but that they haven't seen each other in almost a year because his brother has been so busy. Being gay. Oops, did I say that out loud?
