Aaron: You don’t?
Alan Ball: Well, okay, I do, but my therapist says I need to be more tolerant and understanding of other people, so I’m trying to work on that.
David Chase: I still hate you.
Alan Ball: Anyway, I got you a little end-of-season gift.
Aaron: You did? Aww. It’s not a corpse, is it?
Alan Ball: No.
Aaron: Outtakes from Lauren’s shower scene?
Alan Ball: No. Ew.
Alan Ball: You’re close, though. Are you ready?
Aaron: Uh, sure.
Alan Ball: Okay, close your eyes. Now hold on a sec, and…open.
Aaron: Oh my God! Is that really…
Alan Ball: Yep. Now go ahead. You know you want to.
Aaron: Wow. Okay, I guess. Here goes: Marry me, Lauren.
Lauren Ambrose: Get out. Now.
David Chase: Heh. I saw that one coming from a mile away.
Well, kids, that’s it. I feel like we’ve been through heaven and hell together, so these next few months in purgatory before season two should be no trouble at all. I’ll be back for Mind of the Married Man on September 11th, and you’re all invited to come and join the party over there. Especially Lauren.
