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.
Lake Meriwether: Um, hi. I'm Lake, accepting on behalf of Mia, who has disappeared. Um... And I'd like to invite Felix Westen to accept on behalf of Victor. Because, um... Because he told me he just wants me to be happy. And the truth is... That little nerd makes me happy. Talking to him makes me happy. Kissing him makes me happy. And making him happy makes me happy. So, Felix, please join for me for the king and queen's dance. In front of everyone. Watching us. And maybe someone will go live and it will go viral, and follow me through college and my first year at a PR firm. But it'll be worth it.
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)
