Adam's on the roof, drawing in a large sketchbook, when Joan arrives with a box of stuff and sits down next to him, asking what he's drawing. He shows her his sketch: "Um you." It's a nice image of Joan, holding a piece of paper -- probably the poem. She smiles shyly and says, "I never got a chance to sit for you." Adam: "Well, I didn't need you to." Boy has an eidetic memory, remember? The song playing is called "Love and Hope" by 4 Way Street. He draws intently while Joan looks at him, her expression a mixture of fondness and anxiety. She finally says, "Adam you know how you said I could talk to you about anything, and I said I knew that?" Adam: "Yeah." Joan: "I -- I lied. I think I've been afraid to talk to you about almost everything." Adam asks why. She replies, "I didn't want to mess up what we have." Adam's dismayed: "Jane you " She confesses she didn't take back her pictures: "I got fired. I'm not a photographer or an artist like Iris, I'm not a literary editor or a science geek or anything. I mean, I tried to be, but I'm not. I'm really just digging around in the garbage, trying to find something that matters." Adam puts his sketchbook aside and turns to her: "That's what I love about you, Jane." Joan: "Yeah?" Adam: "Yeah." They kiss gently and smile at each other. Joan remembers why she came up there, and pulls the box closer. Grabbing a few pages out of the box, she says, "Grace can still be anonymous -- but everyone's going to see her poem. Like Notre Dame. Come on!"
They go to the edge of the roof, where it overlooks a courtyard, and we see brilliant leaves of neon-coloured paper -- pink, green, orange, yellow, blue, and purple -- float to the ground, surprising students. Students grab them and start reading. A skateboard rolls to a stop, and Grace bends down to see what's on the page. She reads it and looks around cautiously to see people's reactions. Everyone's reading it; no one's reacting badly. No one's magically figured out that she wrote it. She looks up to see where it's coming from, and spies Joan and Adam standing there. Joan is gleefully throwing more pages down. Grace smiles; Joan and Adam wave. Grace picks up her skateboard and walks off smiling. Man, this show does endings like nobody's business. The final shot is the courtyard, swirled with the colourful confetti, as more papers sink to earth.
