Luke and Nathan arrive at his place after their practice. It must be Saturday. Nathan jokes, "Check it out, Hails, an entire afternoon together and no one threw a punch!" Haley looks down at the computer and says quietly, "Can I talk to Nathan alone, please?" Luke says, "Yeah! Sure. I'll catch you guys later." Nathan sits down and asks her what's up. Haley has her poor-me voice on as she tells him she was doing research when she found the site. Nathan makes some excuse about how he stumbled upon the site and it's no big deal. But remember, it's a Big Deal for Haley. She's a virgin with a capital "V": "What about the half a dozen other sites that you stumbled upon and bookmarked?" She launches right into her woe-is-me speech: "It's hard enough that I have to compete with the girls at school that just give it away. Now, I've got to be a porn star." He tells her she's overreacting. She doesn't think she is, and his web porn hurts her. He argues that he's a "guy," and that "guys" look at this stuff. She says, "Well, don't be a guy, Nathan, be a man." Because no men look at porn on the internet either. Oh no, men abstain from internet porn, it's the teenage boys who are making the industry what it is today -- not the unfulfilled, unhappily married Joe Blow in Winnipeg or anything. Give it a rest, Haley. ["And don't steal your lines from Say Anything." -- Sars] Haley continues, "I'm not a prude, and I think you know that, but the thought that this is what I'm going to be compared to --" Nathan interjects, "So this is what you're worried about, that I'm going to compare you to --" She shouts, "Yes! That's part of it. Nathan, it's hard enough for me to even think about being naked in front of you, and the thought that this is the standard I'm going to be held to, forget it!" He shouts, "Haley!" But she's already gone. Her high horse is hitched outside and is aching for some water and a good trot.
