Ruby and Knoll are at Knoll's apartment, I guess. Knoll is showing her a model he made of a building. He says usually he does computer design, but sometimes he likes to make actual 3-D models. She asks if he's used Zap Glue, because it's her favorite. She has a favorite glue? Knoll asks if she rates glue. Ruby starts describing Zap Glue, as she and Knoll get closer and closer and then start kissing. He lays her down on top of his model, crushing it. She apologizes and he says he can fix it with Zap Glue, and they make out some more. When I write this down, this scene sounds incredibly stupid. However, I think it's true that in situations where you want to kiss, but neither of you really wants to make the first move, you do end up talking about stupid things. So it was realistic at least.
It's 6:35 PM, and they've spent five and a half hours underground. Everyone is yelling. Suddenly, Older Wise Man gets up. He hasn't spoken at all. He uses his cane to walk over and gets everyone's attention. He states that Felicity and Julie were never best friends to begin with. He gives a whole speech about how they were just lonely people who shared some experiences, but you don't get best friends, you become best friends. He talks about his own best friend, who played baseball with him and went to war with him, and they were friends for sixty-three years. He says that best friendship doesn't happen in a year or two, and that it's only as valuable as what you put into it. He says judging it after one year is like looking for the final score before you've seen the second inning. So, he doesn't think they were best friends to begin with. Older Wise Man starts to walk back to his seat. That whole speech reminds me that I should call my best friend. Twenty-two years of friendship, thank you very much. Older Wise Man stops and says that one of two things will happen to them. They'll come through this and become best friends, or this will become a memory that will fade into nothing. There is another garbled announcement and the train starts moving again. Everyone smiles and looks happy. Felicity looks thoughtful. Julie looks the same as always. I think she's going for thoughtful, but it's not quite coming through.
The train has arrived at the next stop and everyone is getting off. Angry Bald Guy wishes Felicity and Julie luck. Annoying Lawyer Guy offers Angry Bald Guy help if he can't get his loan. Ditzy Blonde Lady tells the girls that if they can't work it out, it wasn't meant to be. They walk up the stairs to the street and pause at the top, making small talk about their experience. Felicity asks Julie if she wants to go get coffee and Julie says no, pleasantly enough. We hear Felicity telling Sally that they spent all that time underground and she doesn't think they came out very well. All she can do is ask for Julie's forgiveness (again!) and it's up to Julie. Still, even if they weren't real best friends, she misses her. I liked the ambiguity of this ending -- a lot of television shows would have had them realize they should be friends, or have Julie say something mean. Instead, it could still go either way really.
