Paramedics bring Todd Mulcahy into the hospital on a stretcher. Felicity races alongside them. The paramedics try to ask Todd questions, but it's hard to understand his answers, since he's wearing an oxygen mask. He manages to say something to Felicity about his jeans, and she grabs a note that was sticking out of his front pocket. Todd manages to tell Felicity that it's a note that she gave him when she was twelve. The medical personnel tell Felicity that she'll have to stay behind, and they roll Todd into surgery. Felicity stands there, stunned, and then opens the note.
FVO reads the note to Sally while the camera pans over the box of stuff that Todd gave Felicity in the last episode. FVO says, "'Dear Todd: I'm sitting in Mr. Dorfman's human biology class. I know summer school is supposed to be boring, but this is worse. I keep thinking how happy I am that I met you. You ask me smart questions, things no one's ever asked me before, including me. I guess I could be an artist if I wanted to, but that would probably mean my dad would never talk to me again.' And then I drew a little smiley face after that." As FVO speaks, we see Felicity eating a Mallomar, and then pulling a sketchpad and some paintbrushes out of the box and looking at them quizzically, then pulling something out of her closet that looks to be an art portfolio and browsing through the contents. FVO continues, "I know some day when I grow up, I'll have to make a decision if I'm going to be an artist or a doctor. I'm just glad that day isn't today." Then there's some business about going to McDonald's after class as the scene changes to Felicity stopping her tape.
Felicity and Elena read a list of names posted outside an office door. Both Felicity's and Elena's names are on the list, and Elena cheers and jumps around. Elena says that it means they are smart. Felicity reminds her that they still have to interview for the seminar. Elena isn't fazed, but Felicity doesn't look so confident.
The camera pans over all of the crap from the box, which is now strewn about Felicity's bed. Noel knocks, and Felicity tells him to come in. Felicity asks if Noel's ever seen Dead Poet's Society, which she is currently watching. Noel says that he has. Felicity, crying, says, "This movie...is so good!" Noel points out that Felicity is eating Todd's cookies, and Felicity tearily hands him her note and tells him to read it. Felicity turns off the TV and then says that she thought Todd was an annoying pest, but if she had listened to him and been less defensive, a bus wouldn't have hit him. Felicity thinks the accident was her fault. Noel tells her that it's not true. Felicity hands him her art portfolio. Noel tells her that they are good, and asks if Todd drew them. Felicity says that she did. She adds that she came to New York, talking about how she didn't want to follow in her father's footsteps, but that's exactly what she's doing. Felicity sits down and says that somehow between getting to New York and the current time, she lost track. Noel sits down and tries, "Well, you have an excellent boyfriend." Felicity starts crying, which I don't think is the reaction that Noel was looking for. She says that some strange guy from her past (Todd) showed up and started criticizing her life, and that she thinks Todd is right. Noel doesn't know what to say, so he just keeps looking at the portfolio. I think it would be hard to be the boyfriend of Season One Felicity.
