Faking It (2014–2016): Season 2, Episode 20 - School's Out - full transcript

The future of Hester lies in the balance. Amy makes an important decision.

Previously on "Faking It"...

- Felix!
- I made it home.

You planned this whole party
just to avoid

having sex with me?

The one person I've ever
asked you to stay away from.

You can never
trust a Booker.

Hey, you know how you're
always wondering

if you're a bad person?

You are.

The real you
is so fantastic.

You're the best friend ever.

So what did it mean?

I have no [bleep] clue.

Shane, you're supposed
to help me

figure these things out.

Well, I guess it's possible

that Karma kissed you
because she has feelings,

but on the other hand,
she was a drunk girl at a party,

and kissing you for attention
is kind of what she's known for.

But it was different
this time.

There was no one around
when she kissed me.

She didn't get
any attention.

Until the lights came on
and everybody saw.

Okay, there's no use
trying to analyze it.

Let's just wait
and see what Karma says

when she wakes up.

Sorry, I couldn't wait.

Hey, Karma.
How are you feeling?

My head.

It's like my brain's
trying to escape my skull

through my eyeballs.

Babe, that's called
a hangover.

Okay, but how are you
feeling about...

What you did?

Oh, my God.

I let the soccer team
lick salt off my stomach.

And then?

And then, oh,
I danced on a table.

Uh-huh, and?

And my nipples were showing.

After that.

After that...

After that, it's blank.

Farrah and Daddy could
be home any second.

Scrub faster!

I wouldn't be
scrubbing carpet barf

if you hadn't invited
Tommy over to have sex.

Hope it was worth it.

That is none of your business.

Unless you want
to discuss your drunken

pool shenanigans with Karma.

- Girls, we're home.
- Hey.

- There they are.
- Hey.

How was your trip?

Well, it was exactly
what we needed.

I feel like this weekend,
for the first time,

we truly connected.

And we made a decision that

we're both really happy with.

We're getting a divorce.


We just rushed into marriage
way too fast.

We're sorry to have
dragged you two into this.

Hey, look at the bright side.
Now we can move back to Dallas,

just like you always
wanted, sug-plum.

You're just gonna take
her back to Dallas?

She has a whole life here.

Can't she stay
through graduation?

Of course.


No matter what happens between
your dad and me,

you will always be
the daughter I never had.

You're welcome to stay here

with us if that's what you want.

Good morning.

Hey, thanks.

And thanks again
for letting me couch crash.

Oh, please, you had
nowhere else to go,

and I am a friend
to the homeless.

Well, at least the ones
that look like you.

So, Karma and Amy
swapped spit in the pool.

The plot thickens.
What do you think it meant?

- Don't know, don't care.
- Really?

No, I'm too upset
about my fight with Shane.

He called me
a [bleep] Booker.


How dare he... call you
by your last name.

A Booker is a rich,
self-involved [bleep]

who uses money
to get what they want.

Uh-oh, I think I'm a Booker.

No, you're a good person.

Eh, sometimes.

You're way better
at that than me.

It's probably 'cause
you're only half-Booker.

I bet your real dad
is out there somewhere

doing God's work as a Rabbi
or a teacher

or a plastic surgeon.

Or sitting on the mountains
of cash that my family

must have paid him
to disappear.

Look, I appreciate the chat,
but I'm late for school.

Have a good day.

Yeah, you too.

I can't believe
you're even considering this.

So I'm supposed
to just abandon my dad

to live with
my cheating ex-stepmom?

Yes. Think about
what you'd be leaving behind.

Like my life here
is so great.

I fell in love with a guy
who turned out to be a narc.

I'm only class president
because I'm... different.

So different, in fact,

that Tommy was too scared
to have sex with me.

Tommy's an idiot.

Everyone at Hester
accepts you.

Lauren, do you really
think you're gonna

find that back in Dallas?

Back in Dallas,
nobody knows.

Remember, I will have eyes
on you at all times.

Miss Raudenfeld.

I hope that party
of yours was worth it.

Felix, what happened to you?

Uh, well, I kind of had too much
to drink at your party

and wrecked my dad's car.

Oh, Felix.

I'm so glad you're okay.

God, no wonder
he was pissed.

Yeah, he'll calm
down, though,

as soon as
I'm safely back in rehab.


Hi, my name's Felix,
and I am an alcoholic.

Okay, now you say,
"Hi, Felix."

But you're 16.

What can I say?
I'm an overachiever.

Plus my mom was one too,
so basically last night

was my dad's worst
nightmare come true.

You got drunk at a party
at my house.

I'm so sorry.

Hey, I'm the one
who should be apologizing.

I tend to spill my guts
when I'm wasted.

It's okay.

People do crazy things
when they're drunk.

Well, in my experience,
drunk people say and do

the things they wish they
could do when they're sober.

- They do?
- Yeah.

Like, I meant it when
I said I really like you.

I like you, too.

So, will I be seeing you
back at Hester next year?

Who knows?

Right now, I'm just taking it
one day at a time.

Bye, Amy.


Here you go.

Oh, Liam.

Look, I just wanted to apologize
about the other night.

I'll admit, I haven't been
myself since our breakup,

but I crossed a line
at the party.

Many, many lines.

I know I snapped at you.

Is... is there something else?

Oh, I don't know.
How about that kiss?

Oh, my God,
I kissed you?

- Karma...
- I'm so sorry.

I was really drunk,

and I wasn't trying to get
back together or anything.

Can we just pretend
it didn't happen?

- It didn't happen.
- Thank you.

No, Karma,
you didn't kiss me.

You kissed Amy.

I what?

Today is
Hester's last day of school forever.

That's right, I give up.

I have tried
to save you from yourselves,

but you have remained
academically undisciplined,

reckless, and a bad influence
on each other.

You have left me no choice.

At tomorrow's board meeting...

- What?
- I am recommending that

Hester be closed and that you
all be assigned to new schools

before you can do
any more damage.

What are you going
to do about this, Lauren?

Not my school, not my problem.

I'm going back to Dallas.

Leila, Lisbeth.

She didn't even
sign my yearbook.

Turner's shutting
down the school?

We need to do something
about this.

We need to talk
about that kiss.

So you remembered?

I know what you're thinking,
and you're totally right.

I am?

I am the worst
best friend ever.

I am so, so sorry.

You were there for me when
I was spinning out, and I go

and I do the worst thing
I could possibly do.

I wish I could
take it back.

I don't know
what I was thinking.

That's what I figured.

But listen, I promise
I'm gonna make it up to you.

This is gonna be the summer
of Karma and Amy.

Three months together
to get back on track.

No Liam, no Reagan,
just us.

After we find a way
to keep Hester open.

Because we're spending
the rest of our lives together,

and that includes
school days, right?

According to my intel,
the school board's divided.

We can still win this.

If we can convince Mina Daniels
to vote in our favor,

Hester is saved.

As the leaders of the school's
most powerful clubs...


And sports.

We need to come up with a plan.

Great exposish, Wend.
I'll take it from here.

So, first...

Whoa, whoa.
Who put you in charge, Shane?

You're not even in any clubs.

But I've known Turner
was bad news from the beginning.

I was the only one
to get naked in protest.

What's your plan?

Get dirt on the swing vote,
threaten to out her?

Well, yeah.
What's yours?

Bang her sister?


We should organize
a peaceful protest

at tomorrow's board meeting.

Non-violent social justice
is what Hester is all about.

All in favor
of Shane's plan?

I've been blackmailed
by Shane before.

It works.

And all in favor of Liam's
awesome, much better plan?

Et tu, Brenda?

- Well.
- Great.

Now that's settled, what kind
of protest should we do?

Drama club could create
an immersive,

avant-garde experience.

Yarn bombing, hello?

Everyone will have a chance
to make their voices heard.

Lauren, we can't wait for you

to get back to Dallas.

We've missed you
so, so much.

Thanks, Lana and Leslie.
Oh, I've missed you too.

Austin has been a nightmare
I can't wait to wake up from.

Uh-huh, we need to catch
you up on all the goss.

- Misty S.?
- Mm-hmm?

Totally pregnant.

Oh, and ew,
remember Mr. Flint?

He's now, wait for it,
Mrs. Flint.

He's a transistor?

I think it's transformer?


Well, whatever it is,
it's gross.

We're all trying to
get him/her fired.

I don't really think
it's gro...

OMG, Lauren.
Misty S. was dance captain.

Her spot is open now.

You're a lock for it.

In all my years
as an educator,

I have never come across
a school quite like Hester,

- and I mean that in a bad way.
- Hey. It's not too late for my plan.

No need for blackmail.

This protest will work.

There's no way
they're gonna shut us down.

Too late to get my name
on the list?

You want to protest?

Can you imagine if they sent
us all to different schools?

Saving Hester is bigger than
anything going on between us.

Right on.

You can go before Penelope does,

whatever it is she's planning.

It'll make perfect sense,
trust me.

If I can't save it,
no one can.

Thank you,
Principal Turner.

We will now hear
from the students.

Members of the school board,

Hester's motto is,

"Together, we stand apart."

And in that spirit,

our student body's shown up
to protest this injustice.

First up, the madrigal choir.

Young man,
we don't have all day.

You have five minutes.

- What?
- You can't do that.

We can't do anything
in five minutes.

We can do that.
We are doing that.



It's been a while.

I've missed you a lot,

and if I could just
come in for a second...

Who is it?

Um, Amy, this is Heather.
My girlfriend.



I moved in two weeks ago.

It's soon, but when you share

a connection like ours,
why wait?


That's just so inspiring.

Heather, honey, uh...

I think we're running
low on tea.

Will you brew some more?

Oh, yeah.

Okay, spill.
What's going on?


I know it seems like
I came back here

to get back together.

But in fact,
I wanted to...

give you back
this hair band.

I know how much you hate
your hair in your face.

It's Karma, isn't it?

It's okay.

You can talk to me about it.

That's the perk of having
an ex-girlfriend, right?

It is?

Okay, then...
well, here it goes.

I'm starting to have
feelings for her again.

- And she's still...
- Yup.

Still straight.

And I'm miserable.


And when I was with you,
I was actually happy.

But you've moved on,

and I'm stuck
going backwards.

Amy, if you don't want
to move backwards,

then you need to push
yourself forward.

Okay, you can't keep relying
on other people

to get over Karma.

You need to do it
on your own.

- I've tried.
- Have you?

Because the only way
I know to get over someone

is time and space,

and you've never done
either of those.

Why don't you just

get out of town for a while
or something?

Do you still need someone
to film that tour?

Vashti Nadira reporting live

as Hester's future
hangs in the balance.

And this balloon
represents censorship.

And this balloon
represents tyranny.

Order! I will have order!

I told you this place
couldn't be saved.

We should have gone
with my plan.

Oh, I'm sorry
that I didn't want to

cheat and lie my way
to victory.

What's that, Liam?
You don't like lying?

That's funny,
you never mention it!

Guys, stop fighting.

If we lose Hester,
we could be

split up from our
various best friends.

I should have known
it was all about Amy.

- It's not all about Amy.
- Thank you for enlightening me.

It's all about her!

I've got something to say.


When I first came to Hester,

I thought, "What the [bleep]
is wrong with this place?"

Drama club
is cooler than football?

The most popular kid in school
is an obnoxious gay guy,

and his best friend
is a straight manwhore,

and it's not even
a little weird.

Two girls pretended
to be lesbians.


Because at Hester,

being different makes you cool.

I had a hard time with that.

The one thing that makes
me different is the one thing

I've always tried to hide.

I'm intersex.

I never said that out loud
before I came here.

Turner wants Hester to be
more like other schools,

and I can't believe
I'm saying this, but...

I think other schools
should be more like Hester.


this is a school
that accepts you,

even if you don't
accept yourself.

- Yeah!
- Whoo-hoo!

Put me down right now.

You want to
come celebrate?

I have to go home
and unpack.

Leila! Lisbeth!

Well, I guess neither of us
was meant to save Hester.

As much as it
pains me to say,

Lauren was.


Shane, you're not
a bad person.

I'm sorry for saying
that you are.

And I'm sorry
I called you a Booker.

And that was a low blow.

Celebratory drum circle
in the quad.

- I'm game if you are.
- Sure.

Let's go beat one out.



Do you know where Amy is?

Oh, honey.
Didn't she tell you?

Tell me what?

Here we go, girls.
Tour starts now.

- Whoo!
- Yeah!

I think you forgot something.


You were gonna take off
for the entire summer

and not say goodbye?

I was gonna call
from the road.

Okay, I know
what's going on.

You didn't want
to tell me

that you're getting
back together with Reagan

because you know deep
down, it's a bad idea.

I'm not back together
with Reagan.

She's staying here this summer
with her new girlfriend.

It... it's your mom,
isn't it?

I mean,
Bruce is moving out,

and... and you don't want
to deal with the drama.

Do you really have no idea
what this is about?

You kissed me.

I know.
I messed up.

But we can't let
that kiss ruin everything.

I mean, this is our chance
to get back on track.

I don't want
to get back on track.

I can't keep
getting back on track.

The track is just a loop
that runs straight

through my heart over
and over and over again.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry that this year
has been so hard,

but, I-I mean,
you didn't show up

to save Hester,
and now you're taking off

for the whole summer.

Why am I the only person
fighting for us?

This is fighting for us.

No, this is running away.

We've never spent
this much time apart.

I mean, what... what if we
can't come back from this?

I mean, what if this is
the beginning of the end?

We promised each other...
roommates in college

and... and houses next door
to each other.

Best friends forever.

Don't you want that anymore?

Yeah, I do.

Of course I do.

But if I don't go, we'll never
be able to have that.

Yes... yes, we will.

We will.
This is us.

We can make it
through anything.

Then we can get through
a summer apart.

Hey, camera girl?
We got to go.


What do I have to do
to get you to stay?

You can tell me that
that kiss meant something.

I can't.

Have a good summer, Karma.

How'd you find this?

Eh, my family

Want to go find him?

- Peterson?
- Mm-hmm.

- Williams?
- Mm.

- Avilez.
- Yup.

- Harvey.
- Here.

- Jones.
- Mm-hmm.

Being a lifeguard is such
a huge responsibility.


Maybe later, we should
practice mouth-to-mouth.
