Later, Brenda comes into Brandon's room wearing a giant pajama top, climbs onto his bed, and just sits there. Brandon prompts her to tell him what happened. "It's a long story," she says, and when he tells her he's not going anywhere, she says she's going to save it "for when [he's] older." Brenda, if you're just going to sit there instead of spilling the beans, why did you come into his room while he's trying to read in the first place? Brandon points out that he is older -- thirty seconds older, wah wah -- and Brenda says that, at their age, "girls are more mature," and she whaps his book and promises that one day she will tell him "almost everything," and again, if you didn't want to talk, why couldn't you just have stuck your head in to say good night and left it at that? Brandon goes back to reading, saying he's already lost interest. Amen to that, brother. Brenda moves to the end of the bed and says broodily, "I miss Minneapolis." "No, you don't," Brandon scoffs, but she really does: "Nothing was this complicated." Brandon's like, whatev-- heeeeey, wait a minute, and asks, "Brenda, did you...?" Brenda, alarmed: "No. ...Did you?" He admits that he didn't. She didn't think so. Fascinating. You two want to wrap this up? She crosses to the door, then pauses to ask, "Brandon, are we gonna make it here?" Not with clumsy dialogue like that, you aren't. Brandon points out that Beverly Hills is richer and things are different: "But it doesn't mean they've cracked the meaning of life. Know what I mean?" Not really, but let's just keep moving. Brenda's about to leave again when Brandon asks if she would have told him if she had slept with Jason. She smirks and turns the light out on him as she leaves, which is rude, and Brandon slumps down on his pillows and prepares to get some shut-eye while still fully clothed, belt and all, which is stupid, and finally, the closing credits put an end to the madness.
