And now it's time for a little of the aforementioned Sarah McLachlan as the gang packs up and gets ready to say goodbye. Chrys makes a rare appearance, helping Neil to move out. Everyone else puts their things into boxes. Sharon does a little comedy by dropping a box full of fragile glass things. Lars asks Jeannette over the phone if she's "prepared" for something or other. She's not. Jay and Lars hug goodbye, and Jay rides away in a cab. Mike and Neil make smart remarks to each other about the "real" experiences they've been had together, and Mike tells Neil to have some McDonalds to remember him by. Jacinda photographs the fish tank. Neil says he'll miss "taking the piss" out of Mike. That plus the "squirt" comment lead to believe that something was going on between Neil and Mike that I really don't want to know about. Jay tells a cab driver about his experiences. The cab driver doesn't care. Jacinda, Kat, Sharon, and Legend get into a limo and drive to the airport. Kat is wearing another Tori Spelling ensemble -- her hat has a sunflower on it just like the one Donna Martin used to wear when she was the temporary DJ of West Beverly. "They were nice lads as lads go," says Sharon, obviously thinking she's a supporting player in a BBC adaptation of a Jane Austen novel. "We could have done a lot worse." Mike and Lars take their own cab and commiserate that they're going to miss the house. Jacinda checks Legend in at the airport. The three girls tearfully hug goodbye at the gate, and then Kat and Jacinda catch their plane. Kat explains in a confessional that she didn't have long to say goodbye, but "maybe goodbyes shouldn't be very long." We see flashbacks of the gang having good times together while Kat voice-overs some meaningless drivel about never really saying goodbye to the people you care about. Lars and Sharon sing. Jay does his play. Neil sticks his mutilated tongue out for a doctor. Jacinda flies. Legend poops in the house. The entire gang watches Mike race. Yet again, we see that shot of Lars from the first episode, when he toasts the gang and hopes they'll all be "friends forever." A double decker bus cruises forlornly past a darkened Attention Deficit Manor...and I'll bet you anything that the MTV production assistants are still cleaning it up.
