Victor Salazar: When I first reached out to you, I... I didn't have anyone to talk to. And now I have all of these people, because everyone important in my life knows that I'm gay. You have been so amazing to me. But I think that... I'm ready to figure out this next chapter of my life without you.
Simon Spier: Wow. I think you're ready, too. Don't be a stranger though, okay?
Victor Salazar: I won't. And Simon... Thank you for everything.
Simon Spier: Good luck out there, Victor.
Adrian Salazar: Why was Mia your girlfriend if you're gay?
Victor Salazar: Uh... good question. I was still figuring some stuff out.
Armando Salazar: Sometimes people don't know what they like until they try it. Um, like when you thought blueberry pancakes were the best until you tried your mom's French toast.
Adrian Salazar (to Victor): Cool. Glad you found your French toast.
Victor Salazar: Thanks, papa. Me, too.
Victor Salazar: It must be hard for Lake, too. You know, to see you going through all this stuff, and have to deal with your mom all by yourself.
Felix Weston (about Lake and Benji): So what, they just... love us both so much they can't bear to see us in pain? (looks in the mirror and sighs) Damn. It's a curse to be this beautiful.
Victor Salazar: I just kind of want our first time to be special, you know? And it's so hard to find privacy. But nothing sounds more private than a secluded lake house.
Felix Weston: I can't believe we're gonna be losing our virginities together. You know, we're gonna be bone brothers.
Victor Salazar: Yeah, okay. Don't, don't call us that.
Felix Weston: Deflowered dudes?
(Victor throws something on him and leaves)
Victor Salazar: Mia, I'm... I'm sorry. For everything.
Mia Brooks: Did you know you were gay the whole time we dated?
Victor Salazar: Kind of. But, like... I also didn't. Um, I just loved being around you, and, and I thought that if there was any girl in the whole world that I could be happy with...
Mia Brooks: You know what really sucks? I feel like I'm not allowed to be mad at you. Because, I mean, coming out is, is the most important thing you've ever done, and... I am glad you did it. Because I want you to be happy. Because I love you. But, um, I just wish that you doing the most important thing you've ever done didn't make me feel like sh*t. I wish I didn't lose my best friend.
Victor Salazar: You didn't lose me. I'm right here, and I miss you so much. And I love you, too.
Mia Brooks: This is not how I used to imagine our first "I love you"s.
Victor Salazar: You are so amazing. You know that?
Mia Brooks: Okay...
Victor Salazar: No, no. I'm, I'm serious. Like... Even after everything, you still... You still want me to be me.
Mia Brooks: Of course I do. What kind of person wouldn't?
Victor Salazar: It's like coming out gave everyone an excuse to share their opinion. Or to get my opinion about things I know nothing about.
Student: Hey, girl!
Victor Salazar: Me?
Student: What do you moisturize with?
Victor Salazar: Water.
Student: Water? (laughs) Fine, don't share with us your flawless skin secrets, b*tch!
Victor Salazar: Okay. (laughs nervously) I never thought coming out would be an invitation for strangers to talk to me. Or that the people I used to talk to would suddenly feel like strangers.
Victor Salazar: Dear Simon, it wasn't as smooth as I planned, but Benji and I are officially out at Creekwood. To be honest, I don't know how people are gonna react, and I don't care. You taught me everything I know about being brave. And, and who knows? Maybe one day I can inspire someone to be themselves, the same way you inspired me. Love, Victor.
Victor Salazar: On Monday we start school. And part of me is so excited to yell from the rooftops that you're my boyfriend. But there's another part of me that is completely terrified.
Benji Campbell: I understand.
Victor Salazar: I just wish things could be as simple as you and me, Lake and Felix, in our perfect little summer bubble.
Benji Campbell: No, Victor. It is that simple. You and me. That's what matters. School... Parents... It's all just noise. As long as we remember that, we'll be okay.
Benji Campbell: We broke up.
Victor Salazar: Benji, I, I'm so sorry. I, I never meant for any of this...
Benji Campbell: No, no. I broke up with him.
Victor Salazar: Why?
Benji Campbell: Something's been off with us for a while. He makes me feel bad a lot of the time. About the stuff I like to do. About being a romantic. I want to be with someone who doesn't make me feel anxious all the time. You know, someone who makes me feel like I can just be myself, and that's enough. That's how you make me feel, Victor.
Victor Salazar: That's... That's how you make me feel, too.
Felix Weston: So, what's the game plan with Mia?
Victor Salazar: Uh, I'm gonna ask her if I could come over tonight so she has some privacy when I tell her the truth. Am I doing it? Am I walking towards her?
Felix Weston: Nope. You are fully rooted in place. Now, let me just give a tiny... Yep. (pushes him toward Mia)
Victor Salazar: I don't know how I'm gonna say this, but I know that if I don't say it now, I'm gonna lose my nerve, so, um... Here it goes. Can you turn around?
Felix Weston: Seriously?
Victor Salazar: I'm, I'm sorry, it's just too much pressure with you staring at me, especially since you hardly ever blink.
Felix Weston: What are you talking about? I blink a normal amount.
Victor Salazar: Felix, uh... I... Like guys. Like, I'm into them. I thought I might for a while, but I wasn't totally sure, and. I really wanted to make things work with Mia, because she's awesome. But I, but I can't. Because. I like guys.
Felix Weston: Can I turn around now?
Victor Salazar: Yeah.
(Felix hugs Victor)
Felix Weston: I, um... I really don't know the perfect thing to say. But I'm really happy you told me. And this doesn't change anything between us, obviously.
Victor Salazar: Actually, as... As far as perfect things to say go, that was pretty good. Felix, don't cry.
Felix Weston: I'm not crying. You made me aware of my blinking. Irritated my eye.
