Alexander: Nice shot Hitchcock. Vertigo right?
Alexander: Need someone to get drunk with?
Alex: It's water! And I don't get drunk when I'm sad. (She drinks a shot of water) I sleep with boys. You wanna get out of here? (Alexander looks at her for a moment) Do you really need to think about it?
Alexander: No, I was just giving you a chance to change your mind.
Alex: I don't do that either.
Quinn looking at the paper
Quinn: Oh look, 9 across, superficial bitch, T-A-Y-L-O-R.
(Millie enters a dark, empty apartment after a hard day at work, searching for Mouth to help keep her from turning to her coke habit.)
Millie: Marvin? Marvin. (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. Um, my name is Millicent, and I'm new here and, um, I don't really know what to say, but I keep telling everybody I'm fine, and (sniffs tearfully) and I'm not fine.
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.
Nathan: How you doin'?
Brooke: You know. Working on the ex-boyfriend's movie in the ex-ex-boyfriend's house is kinda weird, but I'm managing.
Nathan: What's goin' on with the ex-boyfriend part?
Brooke: We're trying to be friends.
Nathan: And he's okay with that?
Brooke: (emphasizes with her gestures) He's fine. I'm fine. Everything's going to be fine.
Nathan: Alright. Well, let me know if you need me to knock some sense into the guy.
Brooke: Jamie, you bug. You are exactly what I need to brighten my day. What are you doing?
(Brooke bends down to our camera's line-of-sight and our view darkens to black as she hugs Jamie and his camera.)
Jamie: Capturing behind-the-scenes footage.
Brooke: Oh! Well! (Brooke tussles her hair and smiles into Jamie's camera) Make me look fabulous.
Alex: Oh, you're cranky.
Millie: No, I'm not. I'm fine.
(Alex gives her a 'yeah right' look/nod.)
Millie: Okay, sorta cranky that I have to go to these meetings. It's a bunch of losers with serious problems.
(Alex sighs upset.)
Millie: Like leave your kid in the car or burn your house down 'cause you're so wasted problems. Mine, not so big.
Millie: Whatever. . .
(Millie turns the conversation to Alex's movie and then, Alex is called to the set. She leaves, but turns back to Millie.)
Alex: Oh, Millie. Those people at the meetings, their problems started out 'not so big' too.
(At the bar at Tric)
Grubbs: You're feelin' a bottle of something. But you should stick with water. It's safer emotionally. Wanna talk about it?
Brooke: I took a job to be near my ex. It's painful, but it's worse to be away from him. Sorry, I don't mean to be the sad, pouty girl who comes and dumps all her problems on you.
Grubbs: You are talking to a guy who wrote an entire album about a girl, every song.
Brooke: What happened?
Grubbs: She's with someone else now.
Brooke: How did you know it was over?
Grubbs: You know, for the longest time, whenever I would see her, even after we weren't together anymore, she would tell me that she missed me, and I would look into her eyes, and I knew she meant it. Then, one day she just stopped saying it, and I knew she was gone.
(Late that night leaving the movie set)
Brooke: Well, for what it's worth, I think you're doing great.
Julian: Thanks. Coming from you, that means everything.
(Brooke nods and turns to go.)
Julian: Hey, Brooke. I miss you.
Brooke: Coming from you, that means everything too.
Brooke: For what it's worth, I think you're doing great.
Julian: Thanks. Coming from you, that... means everything. (she starts to walk away). Hey, Brooke. I miss you.
Brooke: Coming from you, that means everything, too.
