Aired December 19, 1999
Written by Jed Seidel, Directed by Lawrence Trilling
Guests: Amy Smart (Ruby), Simon Rex (Eli), Adam Rodriguez (record executive), Sally Kirkland (Professor Sherman), Tinsley Grimes (Bruce)
Felicity's criticizing a painting. Professor Sherman's calling her a slut. Is this a dream?
The alarm goes off. Apparently so.
Noel apologizes for the kiss. They both seem to think Sherman will hold it against them.
Felicity thinks the kiss has screwed her up. But you knew that.
Felicity and Noel choose each other for self portraits. Which only means one thing: a lot of Felicity-and-Noel-staring-at-each-other-into-oblivion scenes are coming up.
Sean's excited about new Smoothaise prospects. Julie's excited about an upcoming gig. Ben's slamming doors. Can anyone say conflict?
She's dreaming, again. Noel's there, so is Eli, Ben and Lucky, the French speaking dog. Noel's voice snaps her out of it. Somehow, they fall asleep together.
Elena gives her the talk. Felicity's still hung up on Noel. Noel's still hung up on Ruby. Pass me an anesthetic.
Felicity decides to confront Noel about her feelings. Unfortunately, Ruby's there.
Felicity finds Noel's Christmas present for Ruby: a Palm Pilot. For someone who's technically broke, he sure has a lot of money. Felicity finally tells him The Truth. Noel's legs start to buckle.
A record guy approaches Julie. Sean approaches Julie. The record guy gives her his card. Sean gives her a hug. Call it a draw.
Felicity tells Elena about Noel. Felicity meets Elena's slow talking lab partner. Felicity wants Noel. Elena wants Felicity to move on (okay, so she didn't say that exactly. But she was definitely thinking it).
Ruby and Noel are studying. Noel gives her the Palm Pilot.
Sean thinks Eric's trying to hit on Julie. Julie gets mad. Ben's trying to do his paper. Ben gets mad.
Noel's drawing a really cute tomato. Felicity's doing his eyes. They do the staring thing, then the near kissing thing. Elena interrupts before they can go through with it. Aargh.
Yet another dream sequence. Ruby's in bed with Felicity, complaining about Noel's gift. Maybe she's just wishing that Noel was more like Felicity, in bed. But don't get me started.
Ben's frustrated. Sean wishes he could trade places with Ben. Ben confuses H.G. Well's Invisible Man with Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man, wondering how a man wrapped in bandages has anything to do with the oppression of African Americans in society. Ben feels like a total idiot. Enough said. Julie comes in and announces she's getting a contract. Sean's happy for her even though his Smoothaise deal fell through.
Ruby's thinking of buying a plane ticket to L.A. for Noel. We're happy that Noel may be leaving. Felicity's not.
Noel thinks Felicity's throwing him a curveball. Felicity thinks Noel's dodging the question. Both think their near kiss meant something, or would have, had they continued without interruption. Noel is indecisive as to whether or not he should re-date Felicity. This editor thinks...
Ruby confronts Felicity about Noel. Felicity denies it. Ruby is happy. Ruby is easily appeased [see: The Love Bug]
Sean proofreads Ben's paper. This time, it's about the right Invisible guy.
Felicity thinks Noel should go to L.A., with Ruby. Professor Sherman doesn't criticize their art work after all.
Outside of class
Felicity thanks 200 proof Annie for her generous critique.
Felicity takes a cab to the airport. She gives Noel a kiss on the cheek. It's over, they're going home. Thank God.
