Transcript[edit | edit source]

Nanase I'm not going to be in a relationship with someone who is in love with someone else.
Elliot What are you talking--
Nanase Don't even try, Elliot. I can see it in your eyes how you feel about her, and I know how your mind works. YOu're afraid of dating her because you think she'll eventually dump you and the two of you won't have any further contact.
Elliot How do you get that from anything I've said or done?!
Nanase Well, your actions just label you as a coward, but the fact taht we've actually discussed how you feel about relationships before kinda helps my synopsis. I just didn't realize you were talking about a specific person until now.
Elliot Nanase, I... I'm sorry...
Nanase Don't be sorry for me, be sorry for her. She's the dope who loves you or whatever. Besides, you and I both know this relationship was little more than two good friends giving each-other privileges.
Elliot I never liked to think about it that way.
Nanase But that's what it was. Name ONE romantic thing we ever did together.
Elliot Does making out in the car outside the movie theater count?
Nanase Nope.
Elliot *sigh* I do want to be with her... but I've been so stupid!
Nanase Yeah, but if she really loves ya, that won't matter.
