MELANIE: Heather's dating a wrestler.
NICOLE: That's different. Heather and Jolt are practically married.
Don't say that too loud. My mom might hear you. I like this shade on you, Mel.
MELANIE: I know, but that was before Matt.
NICOLE: Oooo.
What's he like?
MELANIE: I don't know. He's kind of shy.
Jolt doesn't have a shy bone in his body.
NICOLE: That sounds kind of boring, Mel.
MELANIE: It wasn't.
NICOLE: Oooo.
Do you know what Jolt did yesterday? He bought me one of those skimpy, underwear things. All lace.
NICOLE: No!
Yeah, can you believe it? We were upstairs in my room, and one thing led to another, you know...
NICOLE: Oh, my God!
...and my mom was right downstairs in the kitchen!
NICOLE: I can't believe it.
I was so afraid we'd get caught, but that just made it more fun.
NICOLE: I want a boyfriend just like that. It's so romantic. (Pause) But I don't think I'm ready to be sexually active.
God, Nicki, you sound like an afterschool special.
NICOLE: Well, I don't know how else to put it. I don't want the first time to be with just anyone. Maybe there's something wrong with me, but I'm kind of scared.
You would be.
MELANIE: You didn't meet the right guy yet, that's all.
NICOLE: You really think so?
Or else you're horribly repressed and probably frigid.
NICOLE: Shut up, Heather. My mom says, "Wait, don't hurry. You'll know when it's the right time."
You listen to your mom?
MELANIE: I think you're smart, Nicole. Take your time.
Well, she doesn't want to become a member of the over eighteen club. You don't have much more time left, Nicki. Maybe you could be the president.
NICOLE: If you tell anybody, I'll die.
I won't tell anybody. But you better hurry up.
NICOLE: All the good guys are taken. like Matt.
I'm kinda surprised you like him, Mel. I wouldn't think he's your type.
MELANIE: Yeah. It's kind of weird. He does this thing when I talk to him. He listens.
What?
NICOLE: That's so romantic. I want my boyfriend to listen to me.
Jolt loves me. He can't keep his hands off me. And he's jealous. I think it's so cute that he's jealous. As if I'd even look at another guy. Is Matt the jealous type?
MELANIE: It's like...he's my friend.
NICOLE: I want my boyfriend to be my friend.
That's not what she means, Nicki. Go on, Mel.
MELANIE: Never mind. It's nothing.
No, tell me, what is it?
MELANIE: Well, don't tell anyone, okay?
NICOLE: Scout's honor.
What is it?
NICOLE: Maybe he doesn't feel good from losing all that weight.
That's stupid. Jolt says the wrestling season makes them all so horny they can hardly stand it.
MELANIE: It's like he's being careful, cautious for some reason.
Maybe.
NICOLE: Why don't you ask him?
She can't do that. That's stupid. You don't ask a guy something like that.
MELANIE: I kind of like it, in a way. One less thing to worry about.
There might be another reason.
MELANIE: What?
Maybe what they say about Matt and Luke is true.
NICOLE: Hey, that would explain it.
MELANIE: Why would he be going out with me if he's gay?
NICOLE: Yeah. That doesn't make any sense.
HEATHER: Unless he didn't want anyone to know. Then dating Melanie would be.. well, excuse me for saying so, Mel... the perfect decoy.
NICOLE: Yeah, maybe he's just dating Mel so that people will think he's not gay.
That's really low. Drop him, Melanie. Don't let him use you like that.
MELANIE: That can't be true.
How else can you explain it?
NICOLE: Yeah. Why doesn't he act normal towards you?
MELANIE: Maybe he's just not a sex fiend.
Come on. That's not normal for a guy.
MELANIE: You're right about that.
NICOLE: Why don't you ask him?
I told you. That's stupid. You can't just come out and ask a guy a question like that.
NICOLE: Why not?
Get a boyfriend of your own before you wither up and die of old age.
NICOLE: I told you. All the good ones are taken.
Maybe you could have Matt after Melanie dumps him.
NICOLE: I still think he's cute, even if he is gay.
You would. Well, Jolt's coming over, so...
