Previously on Felicity: Felicity found the suddenly evil Ben kissing the possibly evil Claire. Felicity drunkenly confessed to Meghan that she wished that she had stuck with Noel after she slept with him. Meghan did a spell to send Felicity back to that night, and Felicity freaked out, but eventually pulled it together long enough to get together with Noel.
A Felicity voice-over (FVO) begins the episode: "Dear Sally: Okay, you're not going to believe this. Remember last week, when I told you I was stuck in the past? Well, I'm still here. And now, something's happened that makes me wish I wasn't." I really wish we could see Sally's reactions to all this. I'm surprised she hasn't called Felicity's parents and tried to get Felicity committed. Then again, Mr. Assface Porter would probably be like, "No! She's pre-med! Leave her alone!" Anyway, as we hear Felicity's tape to Sally, we see Felicity and Noel throwing laundry at each other and goofing around, and then they start making out. FVO continues, "As you know, Noel and I started going out. And the thing is, it began really well." Meghan walks in and clears her throat, causing Felicity and Noel to jump apart. Meghan tells them not to stop because she's "seen this whole domination/submission thing before." Did anyone else just go to a scary visual place? Noel and Felicity mumble excuses. Why would Meghan care if they were making out? She's not Ben. Meghan says that she doesn't judge because she doesn't care. Felicity and Noel stand up and agree that they should get out of there. FVO says, "But given the awkward situation, we thought we should try to be discreet. So we started going places where we wouldn't run into anyone we knew."
Felicity and Noel walk through a street fair. Noel encourages Felicity to try the fried dough. What kind of heathen has never had fried dough? That's just wrong. FVO says that in trying to avoid their friends, they ran into someone else. An offscreen voice calls out, "Noel!" Felicity and Noel turn to look, and see Hannah standing nearby. She runs over excitedly as FVO says, "Someone who has become quite a problem." Noel and Hannah talk about how they haven't seen each other in three years. Felicity jumps in and says hello, and Noel re-introduces her, since Hannah and Felicity have met before. Awkward pause. Noel tells Felicity that she has sugar on her nose. Heh. Hannah wants to know what Noel has been up to. Noel says that he's looking for a job. Hannah says that she is, too, and holds up some flyers she's passing out advertising her services as a piano teacher. Hannah explains that she hasn't done much teaching because she's been spending so much time looking for work. Noel agrees that looking for a job is a job in and of itself. Felicity tells Hannah that she should see the websites Noel designs. Hannah thinks that Noel should design a website for her, advertising her lessons, and that she'd pay him. Noel offers to do it for free. Oh, Noel. Never do a website for free. At least ask for a token payment. Otherwise, the client gets all pushy and you get all resentful because they're not even paying you, and it's a bad scene. Trust me. Anyway, Hannah says that she has to go, but that Noel should "definitely call [her]." Noel asks Felicity for a pen, but Felicity points out that Hannah's number is on the flier. Hannah gives Noel a big hug, and Felicity looks kind of annoyed. Felicity and Hannah stand there and look at each other, unsure of the proper thing to do. FVO says, "And then Hannah hugged me. Okay, that's not exactly the truth. I hugged her. But I felt so stupid just standing there. I had to do something." Felicity and Hannah both look incredibly awkward after the hug, and Hannah runs off. Noel says that it was weird, and Felicity says that it wasn't, but her face tells a different story.
