Nicole and Dan walk on the beach. Dan talks about the date in an interview: "It was very cool, we were very chilled." They continue a little farther down the beach, and between Dan's drinking and Nicole's lurching and drinking and the waves coming in, it's, well, pretty action-packed. Finally they stop and Dan kisses her several times. The camera goes up their noses, practically, and there's one slo-mo shot of their lips disengaging from each other, but, you know, I've seen far worse kissing. Nicole admits in the interview that she was surprised by the kiss. Oh, no. Nicole tells him, "I'm really into you." Dan tries to reflect that shit. "Seriously. Seriously we had fun." They hug. "It was cool," says Dan. "Very cool," says Nicole. They walk back, and Dan says that he's glad she chose him -- "seriously." Okay, a little bit after this Dan says that he believes "in communication," and I agree, except it would really help if he learned more ADJECTIVES. Seriously.
In the car, Dan tries to tell her that it's just the first night of the reunion, and they don't know what's going to happen yet. "You've got to understand that," says Dan. "You understand that?" "Yeah," says Nicole. She doesn't understand. Dan tries to explain that maybe in two days someone might ask him out. "Yeah," says Nicole. Dan thinks she understands. "But that would freak me out," says Nicole. Nicole doesn't understand. Dan says "seriously." Nicole says, "Yeah yeah yeah I get it," like she understands. "But what if you have a great time with someone else?" she asks him. "Right! That's what I'm saying!" says Dan. Nicole understands! "I understand it," says Nicole. "But I don't like it." She doesn't understand. "So you understand," says Dan. She nods. She so does not understand.
They're shown walking back into the house with just enough of the slooooow video motion to sufficiently convey the fucked-up-edness of the situation. Nicole's voice-over: "Dan doesn't know the extent of how I felt about him. I don't kiss many people. I don't." Slooooowww walking. Dan: "She did say she had a crush on me. But I told her really clearly that I didn't want this to be, like, a pressure situation." Slower and slower still, Dan and Nicole walk The March Of The Fucked into the living room, where they join the rest of the classmates. "I'm really confused about the whole thing," Nicole says. "Maybe Dan is not the person I thought he was." Nicole looks around slooowwly. "I feel like I'm back in high school," she says. Slow Nicole.
