Zoe: Rose, is that you? Is that really you?
Rose: Duh, and it was really me when you pretended you didn't know me five minutes ago.
Zoe: Okay, I know how that may have looked, but --
Rose: Remember how you promised to take me out for my sixteenth birthday in New York? Well my sixteenth birthday was yesterday, so I had to come here with the model UN field trip. I'm Egypt, and my stupid idiot classmates got into a food fight so now I'm starting my sixteenth year in some New York hospital babysitting Finland while he get's a french fry removed from his sinus passages.
Zoe: I know that you are probably angry at me, and I should explain.
Wade: No need to explain. I don't have any regrets. As for the rest of the people of this town, I can't say they were as charmed by your adios as I was.
Zoe: Well, that's why I'm here. To smooth all that over.
Wade: Good luck with that, Doc.
Zoe: Lavon, please tell me that you don't hate me.
Lavon: What? No, never. (Lavon and Zoe hug) Why didn't you tell me you were coming?
Zoe: It was all just very last minute. I've been thinking about this place and I wanted to end things right. Plus, I need Brick to sign this reference letter.
Zoe: I don't get it, why are people this mad. I moved, people are allowed to move, right?
Tom: Yeah, I think it might be because you ruined all our lives.
Wanda: That is most certainly the reason.
Zoe: Wait, I did what?
Brick: Oh, please let my eyes be deceiving me. Let this be a stroke and not --
Zoe: Brick Breeland you look great! Have you been working out?
Brick: --not you. You are supposed to be gone. This practice is mine now, I have the email to prove it.
Zoe: Of course it is. I am just here to visit, to see how you are. How's Magnolia? How's the old golf game? Did you get that reference letter you sent?
Brick: I do not sign my name to false statements, young lady, and you were most certainly not a role model for this community.
Zoe: Wade, I feel like I owe you an explanation.
Wade: Really, after all this time Doc, what's the point right?
Zoe: What you said to me before I left, it meant something and I thought about it a lot when I first got there. But then, it's like real life just took over.
Wade: Real life?
Zoe: Yeah. Being back in New York? It reminded me of who I was. You know, who I've always been. Things, they're just easier there. It doesn't mean that it's not nice to see you.
Wade: Doc, it's all good. I just wish you good luck in New York and with the rest of your life. I hope you're happy.
Zoe: I hope you're happy too.
