Quotes

Summary

R.A. Meeting

Carl's got mono on the brain. No one's convinced until he keels over. Meeting adjourned.

Date with Yucky Older.. er, David

Felicity's worried because he's not kissing her. He asks her to lunch. With him is the catch.

Noel's place

Noel's talking about killers. Felicity's thinking about David. And Ruby's about to put grapefruit on her Lucky Charms. Oy.

Coffee house

Maggie's speaking Japanese. Ben hasn't mastered English yet. But more importantly, Maggie gets to kiss a college boy.

Dorm

Meghan's got mono. David's got the jitters. He asks Felicity to stay at his place. Noel comes by--looks like Ruby called the killer. He doesn't seem happy with the sleeping arrangement.

Coffee house

Javier smells a scheme. Felicity learns that David's apartment is being fumigated, apparently.

Dorm

Noel and Ruby are doing it. Felicity's trying not to hear. It's a very seminal time for Noel, the makeout bandit.

Coffee house

Felicity's looking like the bottom of the cappucino maker. Javier's thinking he's the best boss in the world. Then David stops by, completing the absurdness of this scene.

Noel's place

Noel and Ruby are acting. Ruby's contemplating her "killer" part. More gratuitous makeout (we'll call it "MGM" for short).

Felicity's room

Meghan's delirious. Ruby needs a diaphragm. And Felicity's wondering when Noel is going to mention his past girlfriend (but Meghan's giant sneeze keeps her from revealing it).

Elena's place

Felicity's showing off a new dress. Elena's thinking tonight's the night. Felicity's mad that Noel still hasn't told Ruby about her. Noel's jealous over David. Get me an icepick. Ruby and David come by. Elena wants them all to go away. Finally.

Catering place

Maggie thinks she's a psychic Japanese speaking caterer. Ben thinks he's about to get lucky. Turns out he's right, and they do it on the kitchen table. Without the muffins. Or the dog puns.

Bar

Noel flicks Felicity's eyelash. Ruby and David witness said flicking from afar. Ruby is worried.

Catering place, exterior

Maggie likes sleeping with Ben. Ben likes sleeping with Maggie. Get me a pillow, because I'm falling...

Bar

Noel calls out Felicity's name--while making out with Ruby. Ruby storms off. David just leaves.

Noel's place

Felicity's got mono. Elena's got compassion, for like a second. Back at the dorm, Felicity learns that Meghan has slept with Carl (killing two birds with one sick stone).

Noel's place

Ruby likes Phish food. Ruby forgives Noel. Ruby is easily appeased.

Catering place

Ben invites Maggie to Vermont. Maggie's husband calls. Ben makes like a banana.

Noel's place

MGM. Noel finds out that Ruby got the part. Cyber boy's busy getting the condom. Yee haw. Looks like Ruby will be kissing Tom Cruise, after all.

Felicity's room

Felicity drags herself to David's. David tells her to give him mono. Wretching noise from editor's living room. Cut to credits (oddly enough, Ben & Jerry aren't mentioned).
