90210 (2008–2013): Season 4, Episode 5 - Party Politics - full transcript

Silver is asked to make campaign videos for political candidate Marissa Harris-Young who is running against Teddy's Uncle Charles for public office. Teddy runs into an old flame and Annie gets stuck with Leila during an important date. A surprise visitor threatens to tear Liam and Jane apart, while Naomi can't shake her growing feelings for Austin during a party to encourage students to vote.

Previously on "90210"...

They paid us to
hang out with them?

Bree, we are like

No, we're not prostitutes.

We're escorts.

You are a reminder of
what happened this summer,

but not just
the accident.

I was supposed to be
comforting my friend's wife.

And instead,
I started falling for her.

You're running a car theft ring
out of my stage?

No, we're running a car theft
ring out of your stage.

For you.

I'm not taking your dirty money.

It's already yours.

You are the single most
annoying man

on the entire planet.

Well, you're no peach
yourself there, sweetheart.

What happened to MIT?
I decided to stay
closer to home

and to you.

You haven't met anyone else?

No, I haven't.

Max might see the good in you,

but I see the bad,

and I like it.

I've been that person before.

I'm not gonna
do this again.

I met a guy
on the pier yesterday.

You're Jane's husband.

Jim? You're dead.

Don't tell them.

So, why didn't you
just tell Jane and Liam

you're still alive?

How could I?

What do I do?

Just walk in and go,
"Hey, guess what?"

Well, I don't know,
not like that.

But spying on me,
sneaking around,

asking me all kinds
of weird questions.

I needed to know
what was going on.

When I was lost at sea,

I was so out of it
when they found me

that I couldn't even
remember my own name.

Did Jane even look for me?

She said there were
search parties.

She was heartbroken.

I saw them.

They're living together.

Are they in love
with one another?

Just please...
tell me the truth.



They're together,
and they're happy.


I'll, um... I'll go.

Well, I obviously have to
tell them that I saw you.

Please don't.

It's probably best
that I just stay dead.


Now I have you where I want you.





You okay?

That must have
been some dream.

You were tossing
around so much,

you almost knocked
me out of bed.

Max, I'm so glad
you're here.

Show me the nightmare.

I will obliterate it.


Like this.

And this.


Ooh. Oh, yeah.


I'm picking up Teddy from
the airport in an hour.

Oh, and tomorrow,

I have a meeting
with that guy.

What guy?

Uh, a student activist
named Shane something.

He saw the commercial
that I did for Liam

and he asked if I'd help him

on a political project.

He's running for student
council president?

Mm, probably something like
that. What are you doing today?

Booked all day.
Haven't got a free minute.

"Leila, what are you
doing today?"

I'm so glad you asked.

I'm going to school,
and then I'm coming back here,

and then I'm going
to school...

And you're coming
back here.

Yeah, it's called
being grounded.

After the ransom stunt
you pulled,

get used to it.

You're the worst brother
who ever lived.

Worse than Mom and Dad.

But way better
than a nice,

strict Swiss
boarding school.

Shut up.

Can I say,
"You shut up"?


I hate you both.

(door slams)


She's gone.



(phone ringing)

Oh, no.

Oh, it's Teddy.



It's Teddy?

Hold on.
Where you going?

What are you doing?



No, great. Uh, just-just
get your baggage and I'll...

Yep, I'm on my way.

Okay. Can't wait to see you.



His plane landed early.


Can't we assume
that he lost his luggage?

It'll take time.

He's only got carry-on.




(muffled shouting)

Listen, great song, great song.

Thank you.

Hey, would you like-- No? No?

Would-- What about you?

You want-- No?


Hey, great song.
You'll love it.

Fellas, fellas.


Ladies, come on, please?

No? No? No?


These people are cold.

You want one, right?
And what is it?

It's me.
It's my best track yet.

It's gonna blow your mind
how good it sounds.

Somebody's got to put it

on Twitter or Facebook
or something.

I just need
a little bit of buzz.

Is this coffee?

Uh, you're welcome.

You sure you
need that?

You're going a
mile a minute.

Been up all night.

I'm, like, running on fumes.


Oh, yeah, um,
your lawyer hit me up.

Asked me to write you
a character reference.

And I told him
that you party all the time.


Dixon, that's not
even funny, okay?

My lawyer is trying to gather
all of the ammunition he can

to stop Marla's relatives
from blocking my inheritance.

And what's gonna happen
if I don't get it?

I already lost the
Kappa scholarship, too.

I might have to
drop out of school.

No, no, no.

You're good
at thinking stuff up.

I mean,
you'll land on your feet.

Plus, your lawyer
has it under control, right?

Oh. You think
he'd want to hear one?

No, I'm good.

How long do we have to sit here?

I think we need to make a decent
dent in the pile of forms.


Hey, ladies.

Having fun?

Oh, tons.

Not anymore.
I can fix that.

If you want to get out of here
and go to Big Bear, I know a guy

with a ski house.
That might be tempting

if it were actually winter
and we could actually ski.

Well, actually, I, uh, wasn't
planning on skiing.

Sorry, I have a boyfriend.

And much more important things
to do than

to fool around in a ski house
with a rodeo clown like you.

Really? You're doing
more important things?

What exactly are you doing?

Giving away these.

registration forms.

Oh, my God, really?


Have fun not skiing
at your ski house, Austin.

I will, and, you know,
so would you.

See you, ladies.

I would go to that ski house.

And you would regret it.

Giving up something real
and wholesome,

that makes you feel like
a better person,

for 48 hours
of hot sex.

Shame on you,


Oh, hi.

Oh, voter registration.

That's fun.

It's not.

That's the problem. All right?

We're going about this
the complete wrong way.

Nothing that involves
poster board and Sharpies

is ever gonna get
anyone stimulated.

We just want them
to register to vote.

Nobody is going to do
the right thing

when they can be doing
the fun thing.

So we have to make
the right thing fun.

I'm gonna put new meaning behind
the words "political party."


I don't know why I ever
leave this place.


You kidding me?

You just got back
from the tennis tour

to beat all tennis tours, man.

Cannes, Sienna, Barcelona.



Is he...?

Yes, I think he is.

He is blushing.

All right, now,
who's the guy?

He was a great guy,
but, you know, summer romance.

He went his way, I went mine.


Hey, how are you
and Navid doing?

Well, um, it's
not exactly easy

having his sister
live with us.

Actually, something's
been bothering him

and he just won't
talk to me about it.

I think it has
to do with money.

Well, maybe it's just
hard for him to talk about.

Like your dad?

You did tell
him, didn't you?

I, uh, I left him a message,
told him I was gay.

And he never even
called me back.

Uh, maybe... maybe he
didn't get the message.

Or the other two?

At least my aunt and uncle
are trying to understand.

They actually invited me over
as soon as I got back.

Wait, really?


I thought your Uncle Charles
was uberconservative.

I know.

You think they're just
trying to be polite?

Well, at this point,
with my family,

polite sounds
pretty damn good.



It was busy last night.

People are still talking about
that commercial

Silver made.

Hey, give some props
to the cast.

Uh, Academy Award for best
wet, shirtless performance?

Don't laugh.

I can finally afford to fix
that leak in the stockroom.

I'm really into this.

It's like I was made for it,
you know?

You sure you're good with this?


The baby?

I'm more than good.

I finally feel like
my life makes sense.

JANE: Jim?
You're alive.


JIM: The cable broke loose
and whipped me into the water.

I can't believe
you're alive.

We searched for hours.

We sent out planes the next day
and the day after that.

Big ocean. You fall in at
night, you're a dead man.

You know that
should have been me, right?

If I hadn't have gotten sick,

if you hadn't have
covered for me...

You wouldn't have been there
to take care of Jane, right?

JANE: You must have
been so afraid.

Afraid that I'd
never see you again.

Of how worried
you'd be.

That you'd be
so lonely.

Cabin cruiser
picked me up.

I grabbed onto
a piece of wood,

and I don't know how
long I was in there,

but I was unconscious
when they found me.

Took a few weeks to
remember everything,

and then I thought of you,

and it all came back.

Minute I got into town,
I came right over,

and now here we all are.

So I got

a hotel just outside
Santa Monica.

I thought Janie
and I would...

Yeah, go, it's
stupid of me to...
Of course, that's great.

Good, great,
I'm gonna go grab my coat.

What are we gonna do?

I can't tell him.

We have to.

No, please, I can't
tell him, not now.

Thanks again,

I owe you one.

15 feet, nine inches.

Oh, Ivy,

I need your help
with something.


Come on, you like helping
the world and all that.

I want you to do a
photo booth at my party.

"Your head on the shoulders
of a great American."

Help the democratic process.

Be fun, right?

Actually, yeah, that sounds
dope and so not like you.

Come on, since when did you
start caring about the world?

Oh, I accidentally
watched a documentary.


It moved me.

Sure, count me in.

I'm always down to support
the democratic process.



Max, I'm so glad
you're here.

(both sigh)


Are you okay?

Yeah, I've never
been better.


Uh, you told me to round
up some volunteers.

Uh, Naomi,

this is Austin.

Yes, I know.

I mean, we've met.

We've, we've definitely met.

Oh, anyway, um,
amazing thing--

Austin heard about
our vote party

and he has some
great ideas.


And what might those be?

Go ahead.

How's this?

Strip registration.

So you get some gorgeous girls
and you set them up

at tables with
registration cards,

and, you know, they're wearing
a lot of layers of clothing...

Well, not too many layers.

But for every-- let's say--
ten voters who sign up,

they take off
a piece of clothing.

I mean, everyone's
going to sign up.

Some twice.


that is a lovely idea, Austin,

but I'm pretty sure
we don't need your help.

I think you do need me.

He said he could
get us a band.

Yeah, my
father knows

some people
in the music business, so...


I bet his daddy can get us
a nice jug band.

How about I just surprise you?

After the way things went
with Dad, I...

really appreciate you inviting
me over, Uncle Charles.

Of course,

Your lifestyle choice
doesn't matter to me.

Have a seat.

It's not really
a choice.

Figure of speech,


Can't keep up
with the right thing to say.

Gay used to be a mood,
you know.


What, what I'm trying
to say is,

you have my support,
whatever you choose to do.

I really appreciate that.

Well... you know you've always
been a favorite of mine.

I look at you, I still see
the same little boy

who loved rolling
down the front lawn,

but, uh, people change,

times change.

Maybe I should change, too,

if I'm gonna be running
for congress.


That's great.

Mmm-- 57th District's wide open.

It's going to be a fight.

I'd like you to help me out.

Maybe you'd consider
joining me

at some
of the campaign events.

I... I-I don't know,
I'm not really that political.

Doesn't matter.

Just be yourself

and show
that you support me

the way I support you.

You want me

to make campaign commercials
for a real congressional race?

I, I don't even know
who's running yet.

Most college students don't.

Who's in congress decides
what happens in this country

on every level.

Marissa Harris-Young...

Is that your candidate?
And yours,

I hope.

Okay, wait, I'm, I'm
talking too fast.

Just, you know, I'm, I'm
excited, and her policies

are great, but there's
more to her than that.

You know, she
really believes

that one person can
make a difference,

like you did with
your commercial.

Internet video.

It was for my friend's bar.

but it was funny and, and
you got people's attention.

Marissa has got some
tough competition

and we need young votes,
and you can do that.

It's going to be a demanding
job, she'll need you 24-7,

but you get full access to
Marissa, no strings attached.


I... wow.

What can I say?

Say yes.

Well, yes, I'm...
I'm overwhelmed.

Um, it's amazing, yes.

Amazing, great.

I was supposed to meet
my friend here.

There he is.


It's going
to blow your mind.

Teddy... I can't
believe this.

I never thought
I'd see you again.




So what happened to Big Bear
and the ski lodge?

Ah, well,
like you said,

there's nothing more fun
than community service.

Oh, please,
I'm not gonna stand here

and pretend
to be impressed

by your deep commitment
to voter registration.


Listen, you're not into
this any more than I am.

Okay, you're just
trying to impress Mr.
Boy Scout in there.

You don't know what I want.

Hmm, but I know
what you need.



Then I guess

you know I need
someone to, uh...

move the outdoor furniture

to make room
for the bandstand.

Sound good, Austin?

I'm gonna go find Max.


(both sigh)

So, what are you
doing here?

I thought you were going
back to D.C.

No, I took
the year off,

mostly to recover
from chasing you

up all those steps
at the Gaudí church.

Hey, you were the one
who insisted we make it

to the top with a stomach
full of tapas.

I had to impress you.

You did.


Well, I hope this does, too.

I'm working for
marriage equality.

California is
a key state.

Marissa Harris-Young is running
for congress, so I volunteered.

You're working
for a congressional candidate?

My uncle is running--
um, 57th District.

The 57th?

That's your uncle?

He's running
against Marissa.

Wow, must be tough for you.

What do you mean?

I mean, the guy is
a total homophobe.

That's not
my opinion;

check his record.

I mean, everything he
believes and supports

hurts people like us.

Look, he thinks what he thinks,
but he's my uncle.

Maybe he's open
to change.

Maybe that's why he asked me
to help him on his campaign.

You said no, right?

Teddy, you're a gay man.

The choices you make
have to make sense.

This is

We could never be together if
you're going to work for him.

So the date's tonight.

They are so nice.

Investment bankers--
ginormous bonuses.

I actually have
this thing

that I have to do
at my friend Naomi's.

Okay, so you can
either hang out

with your friends for free
or hot guys for money.


Look, if you don't
want to do it,

I can totally find
somebody else.

No, no, I do.

I will do it.


Okay, I got to go.

Call me later.

Hey, Annie. Hey.

Hey, guys, what's up?

our most responsible,
reliable friend.

Uh, Silver here just got
the most amazing job, uh,

that'll completely take up
what little time

we have for each other,

and so,

uh, we need a babysitter.
For Leila.

She is grounded
unless she is

with someone
responsible, you know,

in loco parentis, if you
would just be willing
to be driven loco

for the evening.


Oh, my God,
thank you.

Thank you.
Thank you,
thank you.

Pick her up


Uh, oh, I'm, I'm,
I'm sorry, guys,

I have dinner with Bree
and her friends from New York.

So? You said
Bree's great.

I'm sure her
friends are great.

Just take Leila
with you.

Guys, I'm, I'm really sorry,
but I can't.


I just really can't.

No, Annie, you
don't understand.

We really need some time
alone together, and...

I will pay you
a thousand dollars.



Annie, I just really, really
need you to do this for me.



Awesome, great.

Thank you,

Let's go.
You're a rock star.


Hey, did something spill?

Jim came back.

He's alive.

It's a miracle, right?

Wait, Jim was here?

He said he was leaving.

What are you talking about?

Okay, you know how I thought
that I had a stalker?

Well, it wasn't.

It was Jim and he had been
watching you and Jane.

He said he could tell

that there was something
between the two of you.

But he, he acted
like he just got here.

He said if you
were happy,

he would just go away.

Where's Jane?


My wife?

Are you all right?

Liam, yeah, why?

Jim talked to Adrianna,
he's been watching us

for a week.

Why didn't
you tell me?

I'm your friend.

You stole my wife.

Why didn't you
say something?

Because we didn't want
to hurt you.

No, Jim!

Liam, no.

When did it
start, huh?

Stop, stop! Get off him!
When did it start, huh,

You Idiot,
she's pregnant.


All right, we're gonna
get you to a hospital.


All right.

This way, ladies, okay,

so, girls, it's going to go

right directly
between the lanterns,

a little to the left.

Max, sweetheart, the
Washington Monument

is in Sherman Oaks,
and I need...

It's actually in Washington.

No, it's a cake.

I need somebody
to go pick up the...


There's Austin.

Could you be

a dear and use that big,
practical, useful truck of yours

to go pick up the cake?

I'll pick up the cake.

No, I need you here,
and I need him to be there.

I should probably stay
with the band.
He's right.

I'm sure Austin can help
with whatever you need here.

Of course.


Mmm. Oh.



(both moaning)


I'll hurry back.


Well, you heard the man.

Just tell me what you need.



How is she?

She has a mild

They want her for a few more
hours just to-- I don't know--

keep an eye on her.

The baby?

He said it's
fine in there.

Nature protects the weak
from thoughtless jerks.

I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.

I'm... Yeah, you shouldn't be
the one to apologize.


I mean, I shouldn't have even...

No. You shouldn't have.

But you did.

In fairness to you, I was dead,


Yeah, but still...
No. Liam,

here's the thing.

You knew she was my wife, yeah.

But you also knew
that was my baby.

And you were there
for both of them.

You stepped up.

Jane's a great girl.

I know, right?

Oh, she...

I don't deserve her.

If you think
that you're the one she wants,

No. I'm not.

Jane came

to me because
we were both grieving.

Jim, she loves you.

I'm glad she has you back.

I'm glad I have you back.

Come on, that's
my favorite.

You don't like that
at all?

Is Jane gonna be okay?

Everything is fine.

Don't worry.
I'll talk to you later.

Dude, are
you serious?

Hey, guys.

Ooh, CDs.

Uh, Ivy's actually
shooting me a cover.

She swears she got some crazy
good shots on the beach.

Check it out.

Are you...? Oh,
that is so good.

Wow. These are really terrific.

Ivy, you're really good at this.

Yeah, she better be.

I need to start
moving these things,

or I'm gonna
have to tell Liam

to start using
them as coasters.

Well, sometimes it takes
a while to get attention.

Which isn't the worst thing.

Yeah, well, Cobra Starship is
playing at Naomi's tonight,

so I have to go watch and see

what I'm not gonna be doing
with the rest of my life.

I know their manager.

He's a nice guy.

You know their manager?

Can you get him my CD?

Dixon, I'm not invited
to Naomi's party.

No, everybody is.

Democrats, Republicans,
Communists, even you.

What? Look,

I would do it myself, but
nobody wants to know somebody

if they don't already
know them, so...

You got to do this for me.

Please, just help a
brother out, please?

So, just a
quick dinner,

and then we go straight home.

No, no, no, no, no.
No rush!

Navid and I are going
to sneak out of Naomi's party,

we're gonna come back here, so
just bring her home super late.

You girls have fun!


They just want to have sex.

Good night.

(door closes)

(music begins playing)

Hidden treasure.


What is this?

Oh, my God.

Looking good, girls.

Naomi, it's Max.

Oh, thank you.
Take off a couple more layers.

Max, hi, honey. What?!

Ah, I hate the 405!

Okay, well, just hurry.

I love you, too.

Okay, bye.


Well, good job.

How does your father know
Cobra Starship?

Oh, I'll be more than happy
to explain in a quieter place.

How's your room?

No, no. No,
this is not happening.

Okay? And you know what?
Would you look at that?

We just ran out
of sparkling water.

I'm gonna go get some.
It's outside.



Oh, you are not getting
sparkling water.

You just can't deal with
how I make you feel.

You make me feel
like I need a bath.

Oh, perfect.
Shower's upstairs.

You know what?

Get out!


Shoo! Get lost.

I... I am a good person,
and I have a boyfriend.

Well, you're only as good
as your last good-bye, honey.

Then, good, good, good-bye.
Naomi, just shut up

for a second, okay?

You're an idiot.

The door locks automatically,




Can someone please
let us in? Hello!

You know, maybe you shouldn't
have such loud parties.

Be quiet, and help me get back
into my house!




Okay, uh, listen, Leila,

if you get bored,
we could totally go home.

Why? I thought these guys were
big friends of this girl, Bree.

Well, they are, but I don't
really know them that well.

Annie, you
brought somebody!

Oh, great.

Hi. I'm Leila.

Well, hello, Leila.

I can see this dinner is going
to be worth every penny.

Well, may I buy you
something to drink?

Please. Very dry martini,
two olives. I'm starved.

I'm-I'm sorry, but Leila,

you know
you shouldn't be drinking.

Well, she's an alcoholic.

Oops, busted.

Anyone got any weed?

Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you.

Shall we?

(camera shutters clicking)

Good luck to you.


After shaking
that man's hand,

I better count and make
sure I have all my fingers.


Oh, Marissa,

this is Erin Silver,

the videographer
I was telling you about.

Oh, so you're
the video whiz.

I guess, yeah, sort of.

I hope I'm up to it.

Oh, you are if you believe
in what you're doing.

You want to help people?

You don't just say it's
complicated, even if it is.

You work through the
complications, and you do it.

I like that.

So, you're in?

Yeah, I'm in.

I swear you're gonna
suffer for this.

Oh, I'm suffering.

And it's so sweet.

(Naomi sighs)

Stop right there.
Do not move.

This is my house.
Let's see those hands.


Okay, I understand there
are very important people

inside the party.

I'm Naomi Clark,

a very important person
outside the party.

And he is?

I haven't the faintest idea
who he is.

You have no I.D., and you're
breaking into a political event.

To get back into my house.

It's my party.
You can ask anyone.

I mean, who else would come
up with "Strip the Vote"?

Uh, actually, that was me,
and there is an easy way

to prove this is Naomi Clark and

this is her house.

If you just check
the name for priors.

She was busted for growing pot
about three months ago?


It's not true.

Are you really throwing us
into a van?!

You know...

Don't... speak.



Not only are these people

but they are absolutely stupid!

Do they really think
a dangerous subversive

could afford a dress like this?


It's... it's really hot in here.

Yeah. Yeah, it is.

Might as well settle in,
you know?

What are you doing?

It's hot in here.


So, if you're working
for Marissa,

does that mean you
and I can't be friends, either?

If you and I are
still friends

after you came out
while we were dating,

I don't think an election
can pull us apart.

See, why can't Shane say
something like that?

I mean, why

does he have to think
our feelings depend on politics?

I mean, this is about
family for me.

Well, I mean, maybe
you just need to tell him that.

God, look. Adrianna.

You want me to go
say something?

No, thanks.

Got worse problems
to deal with than her.

I got to go find Navid.




Okay, well, he can't
promise anything.

But I really hope
that he likes your EP.

Oh, thank you.
Thank you.


Where have you been
my entire life?



Stop. Stop. Stop.

What did I do?

We need to talk.

I found the money.

Tell me what it's for.

Please. You have
to tell me now. I...

Oh, hey, just, I needed
some money, that's all.

Well, then Bieber-- he
rented a studio space...

Bieber pays his bills in cash?

I found $100,000 in that bag.

Plus, you bought Dixon

a recording studio for a week,

and then you financed
my commercial shoot.

That is not a fee for renting
a stage at Shirazi Studios.

God, it is kind of.

Do remember the dirtbag
my sister was dating?

I borrowed money from my Uncle
Amal to buy this guy off,

but my uncle is now making me
pay it back in stage space.

He's got stolen cars back there.


Go to the police.

No, if I go to the
cops, I'm implicated.

I'd go to jail.
Do you want that?

No, but you can't
take the money.

You're a good guy.

Yeah, who is
stuck in a mess.

Yeah, I'm trying
to fix this, okay?

But the only good I can do is to
let my uncle do something bad.

Navid... I don't know, okay?

I got to go.



I love you.

I love you, too.


You decide to join me up there?

Uncle Charles,
I-I still don't know.

Son, listen to me.

I believe in things
and stand for things

that-that some people
disagree with.

You know, maybe
that makes me old-fashioned,

but part of being old-fashioned
is sticking by my own.

Whatever you decide to do
about this campaign,

nothing can change that.

All right. Thanks.


Tijuana sounds good.

Okay, guys, well,
we've seen the ocean,

so I think it's about time
we call it a night, yeah?

I know. Let's go

Oh, no, no, no, no.

No, no, you keep
your shirt on, okay?

You can't tell
me what to do.

Oh, yes, I can,
and this stops now, all right?

No... no skinny-dipping,
we are not going

to a strip club,
and we are not

going to Tijuana
for Mojitos.

Well, if we aren't
gonna have any fun,

then what are they
paying you for?


Come on.
Those guys aren't your friends.

The guy even said, dinner
with us is worth every penny.

You get paid to hang
out with them, right?

Oh, my God, Leila,
you cannot tell anybody.

Okay? Please, promise me.
I could get kicked out of CU.

I don't even know
what I would...

Oh, don't get all sad
and pathetic.

I won't tell anyone.

So do I get a cut?

Good evening, everybody.

I would love to tell you
why you should vote for me,

but this is a bipartisan event,

so I'll just say,

it's easy to say,
"I'm a good person,

and I think the right things."

But thinking right

just isn't the same
as doing right.

So get out,
get registered,

and fight for what you believe.

Thank you.

(applause and cheering)

My opponent and I may
not agree on much,

but I support everything
she just said.

We live in a country
where every voice

and every vote counts.

And to get your
voice to count

is to stand up for
what you believe.


Which is why I am proud
to stand here tonight

with the many different voices
that make up my family.


Where are they?!

It's so hot in here.

What if we suffocate?

I mean, I can't...

I can't stand this.

My-my dress is just sticking
to my skin.

Well, I mean, what are you
wearing? Is this rayon?

Well, I'm just saying,
it's not making you any cooler.

You actually think that
I would wear rayon?

It's silk,
you redneck.

Well, silk's worse.

I'm telling you,
just take it off.

It helps.


Don't look.


It's not like I haven't
seen that before, you know?

You know what you are?

You are a spoiled,
little immature brat.

I cannot believe
I was with you.

You just want
to break me and Max up

because that would be
one big hoot.

That's it,
isn't it, Austin?

Tell me the truth.

The truth?

The truth is... I don't want
to see you with Max

because I can't stand
the thought of you with him

and not me.

And it's not because
I'm some immature brat.

I'm crazy about you, Naomi.


Oh, my God.

Where are your clothes?

Hey, it's just really
hot in here, man.

It's not what
it looks like.

Okay, stop.

Yes, it is very hot, but Max,
I have to tell you something.

Okay? Listen.


I had sex with Austin.



Just now?

God, no, no, no, no, no.

Before you came back.


Why didn't...?

Why didn't you just
tell me right away?

Because I don't know.
Because I was embarrassed.

Because I wish
it never happened.


you bring out
the best in me, okay?

I would never risk
losing that.


I feel nothing for you.

Hey, um,

if-if the lady says
it's nothing,

it's-it's nothing.

(clears his throat)


All right, all right.


Let me explain.
Don't bother, all
right? I got the idea.

Can't you understand?
This is about my family.

My dad wouldn't even speak
to me after I came out.

My parents were shocked
when I came out, too.

Your dad'll get over it.

I don't know that.

But I do know
my Uncle Charles backed me up

when no one else
in my family would.

Yeah, well, great.

You can be gay in private,
but just don't ask

for any civil rights
or anything, right?

Your uncle is
just using you

for votes that he
doesn't even deserve.

And what are you doing?

Using "gay" to mean
I have to think like you?

You expect me to stand for stuff
I've never even thought about,

or if I did,
you know what?

90% of the time,
I probably agree with my uncle.

But this isn't about politics
for me, Shane. This is my life.

I knew when I came out,

I'd lose people I cared about.

Like my dad.

And now I have one chance
to still have a family,

and I am not going
to let it slip by.

Even if it means losing people
like you.


are you okay?



I will be.

Oh, come here, you.

Oh, you are the best



Why? What happened?

Cobra Starship--
their manager loved my EP.

They're putting me up
on their Web site

as their favorite new
artist of the month.

Guys, it's happening.
I'm getting there.

(Liam laughs,
Adrianna whoops)

That is so wonderful. Oh.
Bring it in, come here.

I'm so proud of you.

These things happen fast,
though, okay,

so I'm sure
that this whole thing

is great, but
promise me

you'll be careful.

Are you kidding me?

This is me
that you're talking to. Promise?

I swear. Guys,
I'm blowing up, huh?

Is the bar
still open?
For you.

Thank you, sir.


Ready to go?

I'm not coming with you.

I want to stay with Naomi
for a little while.

You and Leila can have my place.

Look, Silver, I tried...
I tried to explain to you.

I know, and I know you.

You're a good guy
who has to do something bad.

Except that you don't.

Good guys do good things.

I just want you
to do what's right.

It's complicated.

No, it's not.

End this thing with Amal.

- I can't.
- Then I can't be with you.
