STORY ONE: Boys and girls cannot just be friends.
Adam can’t decide if his childhood friend, Emmy, is more than just a friend.
Adam needs from his siblings help after he “opened the door” and received help from Beverly.
Adam: “Harry and Sally are Lovers!”
Pops: “I’m pretty sure you’re wrong about that.”
Adam: “Emmy and I just watched it. They end up together sucking on each other’s faces like moray eels”
Pops: “Come to think of it. I saw that movie with my friend Miriam and we just might have left early to well…you know don’t need to know why we left early.”
Adam: “What do I do now? What do I do to get things back to normal with Emmy?”
Barry: “You can’t. The horse is out of the barn.”
Adam: “What horse?”
Barry: “The horse that goes by the name of Sexual Tension. And there’s only one way to ease that tension.”
Adam: “By remaining friends and not addressing it?”
Barry: “You’ve got to kiss her. See if there’s sparks. Me and Lexi Bloom we’re dealing with the same issue. It’s been tough. I’m not going to lie.”
Adam: “What are you talking about? She didn’t even show up yesterday.”
Barry: “YEAH because she didn’t trust herself around me.”
Adam: “Well it’s different between me and Emmy. Pops tell him he’s nuts.”
Pops: “Kiddo. You just got to follow your heart.”
Adam: “What does that mean? Tell me. Do I kiss her or not?”
Pops: “I don’t know. You’ve asked the one question that men and women have debated since the dawn of time. Nobody knows.”
Barry: “I know. It’s kissing time bro.”
STORY TWO: Trust Issues
Beverly feels the necessity to find out what Erica is doing all the time while Erica needs her mother to trust her.
Erica: “I’ll tell you what’s stupid. I can’t go anywhere without my mother ruining my life.”
Barry: “All I was doing was shopping at the same mall as you. All of a sudden that’s a capital crime?”
Erica: “Why are you always following me? I mean what is it you exactly think I’m up to?”
Beverly: “I don’t know that’s exactly why I was following you.”
Erica: “So you admit it!”
Murray: “Enough! You two have to work out your crap because it’s exhausting.”
Erica: “Dad is right. I’m heading off to college in two years. Do you really want to leave it like this?”
Beverly: “Of course not. I love you more than any other human being on the planet.”
Erica: “Then please just back off. I need space. I need trust.”
