CORDELIA
[Tori ignores Paulie's beckoning to her and Mouse and sits with Cordelia and Kara, and Mouse continues to Paulie's table] [to Tori] So... how are you?
TORI
First of all, whatever they're saying is trash talk. Stupid. I know you guys won't listen to it.
CORDELIA
Of course not. God, I mean, even if it was true, I'd still be like, "So? Grow up."
TORI
But it's not true.
CORDELIA
I mean, like, my aunt is gay. Like, get over it.
TORI
Yeah, but I'm not. Totally. So...
CORDELIA
No, I know.
MOUSE
[She and Paulie have overheard the conversation] She's upset. Give her time.
PAULIE
Bedford, this is a dark day.

Mouse, where is your father? Did I see you cry? Did you cry like a girl? Like a girly, girly girl? I've been crying, too, Mary B. I've been crying like a girly girl, sucky suck for weeks now! And it's time... it's time for the raptor... Are you with me? I hate my father! Say it, it's easy... come on... Say I HATE MY FATHER!

MOUSE
[Quietly, in tears] Paulie... Paulie... please!
PAULIE
[recites] 'I will make me a willow cabin at your gate, and call upon my soul within the house... '
PAULIE
[quietly] I rush into the secret house...
TORI
PAULIE! [Paulie leans forward and then falls off the roof. The falcon flies away]

PAULIE
Liar! Liar, Liar, Liar! You've all got your heads up your assholes because love is. It just is and nothing you can say can make it go away because it is the point of why we are here, it is the highest point and once you are up there, looking down on everyone else, you're there forever. Because if you move, right, you fall. You fall.

MOUSE
Paulie!
PAULIE
Say, "I... give... her... up!"
JAKE HOLLANDER
Go fuck yourself!
MOUSE
Paulie, no!
JOHN

JAKE HOLLANDER
[to John and Phil] She cut me!
MOUSE
[Shaking Paulie] What are you doing? What are you doing?
JAKE HOLLANDER
You are fucking crazy! [Paulie breaks down and runs off screaming]

PAULIE
Lesbian? Lesbian? Are you fucking kidding me, you think I'm a LESBIAN?
MOUSE
You're a girl in love with a girl, aren't you?
PAULIE
No! I'm PAULIE in love with TORI. Remember? And Tori, she is, she IS in love with me because she is mine and I am hers and neither of us are LESBIANS!

PAULIE
I bet he doesn't know how to do what I can do for you.
TORI
Paulie...
TORI
Paulie!
TORI
Paulie, there'll be no more of this, ok?
TORI
I love Jake!
TORI
Paulie, listen to me, ok? Because I'm only gonna say this once and never, ever again. I will never love anybody the way I love you. Never. You know that, and I know that, and I will die knowing that, ok? But it just can never, it just can never, ever, forever be. Do you understand? [pause] It just can never, ever, forever be. [She kisses Paulie. Tori gets up and Paulie holds on to her hand, but Tori pulls it away. Paulie leans over on the bed face down and starts to cry]
