The Homicide cameras come back out for a line that I wish I could put up here in Real Audio so you could giggle along with it. I'll try, though. Picture trying to say the next line as quickly as you possibly can and then on the last two words make it a strong, hoarsey whisper (a poorly executed "stage whisper" we'd call it in the biz): "Okay, Julia's a teacher. You're a student. You're both desperate to keep this thing a secret. There's a reason for that. IT'S WRONG!" Dan says he doesn't care because he knows how he feels about Julia and he wouldn't trade it for anything. "Yeah, it's still wrong," comes Miss Debate Team's rebuttal. Dan asks how come at the party before when he told her that he was seeing someone else she said she was happy for him and now that's all changed. "That someone else is Julia," Meghan reminds us all yet again. Dan tries a different tactic and tells Meghan to remember when Julia first came to the school and how on the first day she just talked to them in class and their homework assignment was to "learn the lyrics to any Smashing Pumpkins song and recite them as poetry." As they walk down the hall they pass beneath a sign with an arrow over their heads that says "Prom King, Queen." Oh, just in case you were wondering if I did my assignment from Julia, I did. It reminds me of this episode. Ready?
emptiness is loneliness, and loneliness is cleanliness
and cleanliness is godliness, and god is empty just like me
intoxicated with the madness, I'm in love with my sadness
bullshit fakers, enchanted kingdoms
the fashion victims chew their charcoal teeth
Dan says that it was because she was different that they were both drawn to her. Meghan starts to tuck her hair, realizes this scene calls for a hair-in-the-face-head-tilt, and decides not to tuck. Dan confesses that he loves Julia. Meghan seems shocked. "What are you, clinical, she's twice your age, you're gonna get killed here," Meghan machine-guns out. Dan tells her to keep out of his business and keep quiet about it because everything is fine. He opens the door and almost walks on Blonde Girl. Blonde Girl walks up to Meghan and says she thought Meghan and Dan had broken up. Meghan says that they had broken up. "So, what was that about?" Blonde Girl asks, letting us know she's Best Friend Episode Seven. I don't have to tell you that Meghan tells BFES that she doesn't want to talk about it. BFES asks if he's trying to get back together with her. Meghan tells her she doesn't want to talk about it. BFES starts up again until Meghan says, "Amy, Amy, please, please just let it go." "Okay!" Amy flippers. "It's gone!" She chews her gum as Meghan looks at her like, "I can't believe this miserable bitch has to be my best friend for a whole episode." "Thanks," she mumbles.
