Nathan and David arrive home from somewhere. Space Needle number twenty-eight.
Nathan, David and Stephen are in bed, and Nathan tells David to turn off the lights. Stephen says they can't turn off the lights yet because they have to talk, and apparently they need lights to do so. Stephen gives a speech about how he's big on respect, and he gets pissed off if he feels that someone doesn't respect him. Nathan is wearing a baseball cap to bed for some reason. Stephen apologizes for disrespecting the others in the past, and says that he can't ask for respect from Nathan or "Donnie Brasco" (David) if he doesn't give them respect. Stephen knows that Nathan is a good guy, but he has a temper sometimes. Nathan says that he can't deny that. Stephen says that a friend told him to kill them with kindness, and he thinks they should all follow that philosophy. Stephen says he came into the house on the defensive, and he shouldn't have. Nathan shakes his hand and then hugs him. David says that Stephen "blew him away," and we see them all hugging in their underwear. This scene is very homoerotic.
It's Valentine's Day, and the song "We Got a Love Thing" takes me back to, well, 1997. The gang is working at the Westlake Center, where a DJ from the radio station is performing a mass wedding. Janet and Lindsay stand outside and piss and moan about the crappy weather and how Janet is in a bad mood. In an interview, Stephen says that he has been missing Natasha for a year (and he still hasn't told his mom they broke up?) but she'll always hold a piece of his heart. Stephen gives the girls flowers. Lindsay teases Janet about her bad mood. Lots of shots of people getting married. They don't show that Rebecca and Irene were one of the couples who got married though. That would have been a lot more interesting than Janet and Lindsay bitching about the rain.
It's night. There's Space Needle number twenty-nine. Will we make it to thirty before the end of this episode? Janet comes into the house, carrying her flowers (hey, weren't they supposed to arrive like three days ago when Rebecca took the call?). They're from her parents and grandparents. Lindsay says that Janet's family should give her family a lesson. Janet says that it's a big move on her parents' part. It's kind of sad, though. I remember in high school, the National Honor Society used to sell carnations for a dollar and then the members would deliver them to the various homerooms, and every year, I used to hope that I would have some sort of secret admirer or something. And every year, I would get one from my mom. I love my mom, and it was a nice gesture, but it was kind of anticlimactic. Oh, I think I have revealed too much about my past. I'll shut up now.
