Teleportation. Will is at the softball game, watching Sean pitch. One African-American man sits behind Will ("We need someone to play Ralph's dad! Quick! Is the sound guy black? Can we have him sit on this bench?"). And if you're keeping score at home, that's African-Americans: 3, Fat Guys: 1. We watch the catcher put his fingers in front of his crotch (you know they wouldn't miss that opportunity). As Sean goes for the third strike he glances a look at Will. Will nods. Sean nods back. They're in looo-huu-hooove. The guy hits the ball and Sean catches it. Sean throws the ball to Ralph on first to tag out the guy running back to first. Ralph tags the guy out. Game over. Ralph and Sean win the game, but Will knows it should have been him. Incredible cheering like Robert Redford had something to do with this game and Glenn Close is glowing in the stands. All of the boys throw down their mitts and have a group hug in the center of the field. Someone grabs Sean's tittie. Will laughs as Sean is being man-handled. Sean looks at Will and shouts, "Woo!" Will starts to walk off with his bike but stops to look at Sean. Sean stares at Will. Will stares at Sean. Will smiles and walks off. Sean looks back at his teammates and goes back to cheering. Sean looks back at Will again and gives a half-hearted, "Woo." Ha.
Will is riding his bike down Main Street. Sean stops him on his bike. "You kicked ass," Will says. "Long time comin'," Sean nods. Sean asks what it's like on the inside. "Rawley? Pretty intimidating." Sean asks why he wouldn't tell him. Will says that he figures one morning someone will figure out that he's "faking it." Oh, you mean like last week, Will? When everyone found out you faked it? He says that he didn't want everyone to see him fail. "Will! You're not going to fail. You got a scholarship. You're the smartest freaking guy I know. You're gonna own that place!" Ooh. I want a t-shirt that says "Smartest Freaking Guy." Will and Sean then go into the longest game of "Remember when" I've ever seen. Sean: "Remember when we were kids? [Um...like, last year? You're fifteen!] You had this way of looking at things. You make anything seem possible. I never told you this, but, because you were gonna be somebody? Made me feel that I was gonna be somebody too." Will: "Remember we'd hang out in the woods and get chased around by the Rawley groundskeeper guy?" Sean: "Was that guy a freak, or what? Oh, man." They sigh. Will: "Those were some good times." Okay, quick break here so we can all laugh at that line. Now, we're going back in. Will: "Remember that girl, Coralee, from elementary school?" As they walk off talking about how Coralee was asking about Will (Sean has now developed a Southern accent), Bella walks out of the gas station to look on approvingly at them. They kick each other, and run each other's bikes into their legs.
