Nick Nelson: I promised.
Charlie Spring: What do you mean?
Nick Nelson: When we went to the beach. I told you I was gonna come out, but... I've just been finding it so hard.
Charlie Spring: You didn't promise anything. I think there's this idea that when you're not straight, you have to tell all your friends and family immediately. Like you owe it to them. But you don't.
Tao Xu (to Charlie and Isaac): I like Elle. Okay? I said it. And don't laugh! I bet you've all been laughing behind my back because I've been so oblivious. Honestly, Elle can do better, and she probably doesn't even like me back, and this is probably going to destroy our friendship, it's going to destroy our friendship group, and it's going to leave me devastated for years to come. So this is a really selfish and stupid thing to do, but I'm going to tell her. Help me.
Tori Spring: You're telling people then?
Charlie Spring: Yeah.
Tori Spring: And you're not worried?
Charlie Spring: About what?
Tori Spring: About getting bullied again?
Charlie Spring: It's not gonna be like when I got outed. We just want people to know we're together. I'm gonna do everything I can to make sure Nick doesn't have to deal with what I did. I can protect him. I can make sure that he never feels pressured or stressed or... scared. Everything's gonna be perfect.
Nick Nelson: Imogen, um... I... I kind of have something that I... I wanna tell you. Well, it's... It's kind of hard to...
Imogen Heaney: Is it about you and Charlie? Oh my God. I should've let you say it. It's just... it is kinda obvious. And, like, it totally makes sense. Like, the whole date thing and the sports-day thing. You didn't like me because you're gay.
Nick Nelson: Uh... Well, I... I'm bisexual actually.
Imogen Heaney: Oh.
Nick Nelson: Yeah.
(Imogen hugs him)
Imogen Heaney: I'm sorry. I don't actually know how to react.
Nick Nelson: This is... This is good.
(Charlie rejoins the rugby team...)
Nick Nelson: You know you don't have to do this if you don't want to.
Charlie Spring: I want to. Otherwise we'll barely see each other this term. And I've missed rugby.
Nick Nelson (laughs): Have you now?
Charlie Spring: Yeah. I love running around and falling over.
Nick Nelson: Oh, well, you are very good at the falling over part.
Charlie Spring: I'm good at the running part, too, actually.
Nick Nelson: What, running away from the ball?
Charlie Spring: Okay, well, if you don't want me here...
Nick Nelson: Oh, no, no, no, no. Come on. I need you.
(Text messages between Nick and Charlie on Instagram...)
Nick Nelson: Hi ♥
Charlie Spring: hi 👀
Charlie Spring: does being boyfreinds mean we do good morning texts now
Nick Nelson: Does that technically qualify as a 'good morning text'
Nick Nelson: Because technically all I said was 'hi'
Charlie Spring: it was first thing in the morning so i think it qualifies
Charlie Spring: good morning boyfriend♥
Nick Nelson: I was thinking... What if I came out?
Charlie Spring: Do you really want to?
Nick Nelson: I really want to. I know I've been pretty unsure of everything for a while, but, like, I'm definitely bisexual. And I don't want to have to sneak around pretending we're platonic BFFs. I'm not saying I want to have a public announcement or anything, but... I want to tell the people who matter. And I want you to be able to tell people too.
Nick Nelson: I know people have hurt you. And you feel like I'd be better off without you, but... I need you to know that my life is way better because I met you.
Charlie Spring: You don't have to say that.
Nick Nelson: I do. And I'll keep on saying it until you believe me. Look, I don't care about getting into fights or pissing off my mates or anything like that. It's all worth it to be with you. You are the kindest, most thoughtful and caring and amazing person in the whole world, and if you really want to break up, then I would respect your decision, but I want us to be together.
Charlie Spring: Nick...
Nick Nelson: You're my favorite person, I need you to believe me.
Charlie Spring: Nick. I believe you. I believe you.
