Erica: Uh, just now, I mean … on stage … I, not that I'm complaining at all, but, I mean, you said that you weren't gonna do the kiss, so … why did you do the kiss?
Ethan: To prove to you … that I, Ethan Wakefield, am not gay. You know, I should be really mad at you for spreading that little rumor.
Erica: I - I …
Ethan: No, no, no. I get it. I'm a guy in drama and I kinda freaked out when you kissed me.
Erica: I am so sorry, Ethan.
Ethan: It's an honest mistake.
Erica: So, you don't, I mean, you don't hate me?
Ethan: I did, at first, but, um … I owe you.
Erica: For what?
Ethan: Your crazy rumor was a definite conversation starter with Claire. When I cleared everything up, she asked me out on a date. It's because of you.
Erica (tight lipped): Oh!
Ethan: So, buds? (offers fist bump)
Erica (exhales): Buds.
