(Millie sighs as she sets her things down and looks at herself in the mirror.) Millie: I am not plain. I am fine the way I am. I'm fine. (Mille desperately searches her room, tossing her clothes around. She finds a stash of coke in a coat pocket. She contemplates it and puts her hand to her forehead and sighs. Cut to Millie speaking in front of a group.) Millie: Hi.

    • Jamie: I can't believe this looks exactly like Uncle Lucas' room. Hey, remember that time he had a mohawk? Nathan: (laughs) Yeah. Jamie: That looked cool. Nathan: You miss him? Jamie: Yeah. I miss lots of people. I guess. Aunt Peyton, Uncle Skills, Quinton. Grandpa Dan, I miss him a lot. Nathan: Yeah, it's hard when you miss people. But you know if you miss them, that means you're lucky. It means you had someone special in your life, someone worth missing. Jamie: Yeah, I guess. I just don't like the missing part so much. Nathan: Yeah, me neither.
