Melissa drives her white sports car alone at night. So sad. Voice-over reveals that she's "never gone off on anyone like that in [her] life." Lenny Kravitz sings, "Welcome to the reeeal wooorld! You betta be strong!" Then an anvil drops from the sky to hit you over the head, just in case you didn't get it.
Daytime. Sarah's chilling with Dan. She pops open a can of something. Beer? Soda? Anyone's guess. Drama Queen Dan says Melissa HIT HIM: "Where do you go from there?" Um, NO, she did NOT hit you. You did call her a fucking bitch though. Sarah, still mad at Melissa, says, "She's not a friend."
More Tense Guitars play as Dan hogs the phone/computer area and Melissa sits at the table. There's a bad edit/cut and now Melissa is standing by Dan with her hand on the phone's hang-up button, saying, "I still need to use the phone, we still have to live together, there's a level of respect we need to maintain." She drags a chair over, primly sits in it, and they talk. "Hit you? You call this [gentle shove on chest] hitting you?" Neither do I, woman. Dan asks what is going on. Melissa restates the facts about the current troubles in her life, and remembers how, early on in their roommate-hood, Melissa took the time to listen to and talk with Dan about his feelings, and "never once have you asked me how I'm feeling or if anything's wrong." Melissa gets misty and says she never yelled at anyone like that before and that "that was my father that came out, not me." Dan apologizes (yay!) about twenty times and says it won't happen again: "I was being stupid and immature." Yes indeed! Thanks for not making me point that out.

Night time, again. Sarah, her three homies, Cyn, and Melissa are sitting around playing Truth or Dare. Dude, if I'm that bored, I'd rather play Spin the Bottle. Hank is videotaping the non-event. Foreshadowing, people. Then, Hank dares Melissa to jump into the pool, and she does! She looks really pretty in the water. Sarah dives in too, and Hank, as Cyn stands on the sidelines and expresses her general disbelief at Melissa's newfound free-spiritedness. Flying in the face of convention, Melissa jumps in the pool again. Splash.
