Bankruptcy Diner. Heavy-set extras sit on the area outside the restaurant. There are lights on inside, and there are even a few customers. Scout stares at Bella through the restaurant window while she sits at her table. He's still in his Crew uniform. He inhales, exhales, and enters the restaurant. He asks her to buy him a COKE. She says that she's just a poor working girl. He says he'll treat. She pulls out another straw and sticks it in her glass. He's touched. He apologizes about earlier. "You must be completely freaked out about this whole thing." Bella lowers her head, listens to more music from the Nick Drake soundtrack and says, "Yeah, I am." She says she thought she wasn't going to hear from her again and she wonders what she wants. Scout says that she probably wants to meet her. Bella says she's not going to tell Charlie or Grace because they'll just end up miserable again if they see her. Scout reminds Bella that she's talking about her mother. "You know what, Scout? She forgot that a long time ago?" There are so many statements asked in the form of a question in this show. Scout nods, looks down, blinks, nods, looks up. Bella blinks, looks down, blinks, blinks, exhales through her nose. She says she's going to add this to her list of what she did on her summer vacation. She met her dad, but really only filled his gas tank at the station. She fell in love with her brother. And her mother who's been missing for ten years suddenly resurfaces "and wants to get together." Scout's all, "Fell in love?" And Bella says she was being "dramatic." Oh, so that's what it looks like. Scout looks down, nods, blinks, smirks, nods, blinks. Bella looks down, blinks, nods, blinks. She says as far as she's concerned she doesn't have a mother. "Are you at least curious?" Scout asks. "Scout, this is my mom, okay? Do you not get that? And I have a lot of issues with this, and a lot of them have nothing to do with you, okay? And all you care about is whether we're related or not. That's all you care about." Scout says that he, in fact, cares about her. "Really? Then act like it." Bella storms off. Scout mouth-breathes, blinks, blinks, sighs, shifts, sighs, blinks, sighs, and puts his hand by his crotch. What? He does.
