Coming down the stairs at the House of Aunts, Olive runs into Ned. "I never thought I'd say this," she tells him. "But we need to back off on the PDA 'cause Vivian's Ps & Qs have gone AWOL and I can't take much more of what I just took before I'm DOA." Ned: "Olive. Use your words." Hee. To clarify, she holds up the veil. "We're still just playing, right?!" Ned asks, aghast. "Vivian's jumped the bridal shark!" Olive says. She thanks Ned for being so nice to go along with this whole rigmarole, but says they've got to tone it down before they get in any deeper with the deception. "You don't have to thank me," he says, smiling. "I've been curious about having a normal relationship, and this one has been really interesting to try on." Vrrrt! The needle comes off the record. "Try on?" Olive snaps. "You try on a sweater at the mall. You try on your best friend's bra and then smile on the inside because yours are bigger and better. You don't try on a person." Ned backpeddles that it was a bad choice of words, but Olive goes on. "Is that what 'well I wouldn't say "never"' was about?" she asks. "Were you 'trying me on' in your head?!" Ned nearly chokes with all the fumbling he's doing. "I don't know," he says, desperately, "what words to choose, now." Olive, pushing past him: "WHOA, I DO."
