Will rows. Overhead shot of rowing. I'm sure there's some sort of homoerotic thing here, too, but I'm becoming desensitized.
Will sees Scout sitting in a chair in some room with good lighting. He walks over and apologizes for not trusting him the night before. Will says, "I've always wanted to be here. This school. Rawley. Be one of you. For you guys, anything is possible." Scout asks if Finn said anything else. Will says the ball is in his court. "I don't belong here. I wish I did, but..." "Will," Scout interrupts, "nobody belongs anywhere. It's in your head." Oh, Lord. He tells Will that his grades were good enough for the scholarship, he just has to believe that he was good enough to get in without cheating. Will says he doesn't think he's good enough. Scout says he thinks he is. They lean in close, and the sparkle of each other's eyes is just blinding. Will rocks a little and thinks.
Scout shows up at the gas station to talk to Bella's dad. Okay, you want the long version, or the short version? Long version: Blah, blah, blah, sit down, blah, blah, Bella's dad doesn't really hate Rawley guys, blah, blah, blah, knew some great ones, blah, blah, including Scout's dad, blah, blah, blah, hard to grow up in Rawley because the rich Rawley boys get everything, blah, blah, Scout shouldn't see Bella anymore, blah, blah, blah, Bella's mother liked her some Rawley boys too, blah, blah, blah, especially Scout's dad. Short version: Scout has been tonguing his half-sister all week. Scout gets nauseous and runs from the gas station. He runs right into Bella who kisses him. He pulls away and says he has to leave. "You just got here! What's wrong? Scout!" Fade to black. Commercial.
Sprite commercial. Brought to you by the Coca-Cola company. Why don't they just change Will's name to Coke? He's the only one with a bland name, anyway. Well, at least he has a name. The two reliving Chloë Sevingy's film career are nameless.
Will walks into Finn's office and says, "My whole life's been about limitations, what I can't have and what I can't do and I bought into that. Let me take the test again." He says he wants to know if he would have passed. He says Finn can throw him out afterwards. Finn pulls the test out of a drawer and says that he can take the test. "But more importantly, I want an essay. No less that three hundred words." Will gives a look like he's never learned how to count to three hundred. "Who are you, Mister Krudski? You have ninety minutes." Finn walks out, leaving Will in a room, presumably with Internet access, so he can just copy some online journal's bio. For some reason "She speaks like silence" is written across the chalkboard, so we know Finn's all deep and shit. Crazy close-up on Will as he looks around the room fifteen times.
