Poppy: There’s no reason to tell rj.

Luna: He deserves to know.

Poppy: But why take that risk? You could mess everything up.

Luna: “Could”? Mom, no, I already have. I messed it all up as soon as I got into zende’s bed.

Poppy: Yes, ’cause you didn’t know what you were doing! That the mints you took could–

Luna: Could? Could what? Make me hallucinate? No, mom. I thought they’d do what mints do. I didn’t know that I– I had your mints that are laced with god knows what.

Poppy: Yes, because I take one, luna! And definitely not with alcohol.

Luna: Okay…

Poppy: No, luna, I am sorry. I am so, so sorry.

Luna: I thought I was with rj, mom. That’s how out of it I was. That’s what your little drug habit did to me. It ended up with me sleeping with zende. I spent the night with him, cuddled up in his arms, thinking that he was my boyfriend, mom.

Poppy: Yes, because of me. Okay, this is all my fault. Don’t turn a terrible mistake, my terrible mistake, into something so much worse, okay? Rj doesn’t need to know anything about what happened last night.

Thomas: Wow, look at that pencil fly. Didn’t know anyone could sketch so fast.

Rj: Yeah. Just trying to get this idea on paper as quickly as I can.

Hope: Oh, you mean before it escapes your brain?

Rj: Yeah, sure.

[ Hope chuckling ]

Hope: I– I don’t know. I think, maybe, I don’t know, does someone have other plans?

Rj: Um… yes, I do, actually. I do have plans. I am meeting luna at the beach house and I’m trying to set up a special date for tonight, and I am trying to leave early to do that, so yes.

Hope: Well, lucky luna.

Thomas: And lucky rj. Hey, look, we’ve, uh– we’ve seen the positive effect she’s had on you lately.

Hope: Yeah. It’s been really nice to watch the two of you. You’re a sweet couple.

Luna: You want me to lie to rj about this?

Poppy: You’re not really lying. You didn’t mean to.

[ Knock on door ] Oh, no. That’s probably him.

Luna: Probably. Go. Zende.

Zende: I know I’m probably the last person you wanna see right now. I’m just– I’ve been so worried, and, uh, I just, um– I know you’ve been freaking out, and honestly, I have too. I just– I can’t have you thinking that last night, that– that what we shared, that somehow I took advantage of you–

Luna: Mom, what are you doing?

Poppy: I want the truth. Did you take advantage of my daughter last night? Answer me!

Zende: Absolutely not! No, no, no! We spoke earlier in the night, and I told her that I was across the courtyard, and then there she was, waiting for me. You– you– you told her, right?

Luna: Yes, yes.

Zende: I didn’t– I wasn’t trying to. I didn’t–

Luna: Yes, I remember enough to know that you did nothing wrong. I just– I just really thought that you were rj. Mom, come on, I told you this. My mom knows all about what happened last night. More than you think. Mom, we owe zende an explanation.

Rj: Is it that obvious how close luna and I are getting?

Hope: Mmm, don’t worry. Everyone approves.

Thomas: Yeah, everyone approves. Has that ever happened in this family before? Like, where everyone is just on board from the beginning?

Rj: I don’t think so. No. Never.

[ All laughing ] I mean, there’s not really anything to object to with luna. I mean, she’s– she’s kind, she’s funny, she’s beautiful. I’m a lucky guy.

Luna: I’m sorry. I thought you were rj. I really– I really did.

Zende: I– I wish I could understand how. The last thing– the last thing I would want for our first time would be for her to think that I was someone else. All I know is that luna was there when I walked in. She told me that she had been waiting for me. You– you said that I’m owed an explanation?

Luna: Listen, I didn’t understand why I spent the night thinking you were rj… until I talked to my mom about it. What happened between us, it’s all her fault.

Zende: Your mother?

Luna: Yeah. My mother and her mints. In all my travels I’ve never seen such dry skin.

Rj: I tried to make it as romantic as possible considering it was her, um…

Thomas: Oh! Okay.

Rj: I’ve– I’ve revealed way too much to you.

Hope: Um, yeah. I– I’m gonna table this conversation, you know, for a different time, a different place, a different conversation that doesn’t involve me. Um… but I will say, as a woman, that the first time is– is a bit of a big deal and should be treated with respect.

Rj: I know, I get that, and– and– and I respect that. That’s why I, like– I tried to make everything just as perfect as I possibly could.

Hope: All right. Well, I’m sure… it was great, and you are a nice, caring guy, and I am happy for you both. And let’s change the subject, please.

Rj: Yeah, no– let’s– no, but she is– I wanna emphasize though, she’s– she’s amazing. I’m thinking about her, like, all of the time. I just can’t wait to see her again.

Thomas: Would you look at that guy? He has got it bad. You’re in love.

Luna: Well, are you gonna tell him, or am I?

Zende: You said something about mints?

Poppy: Recreational. I take them every now and then to take the edge off.

Luna: Those mints do a lot more than just take the edge off, mom.

Poppy: That’s because I have one, luna. One. I don’t pop two or three at a time all night long. And because I’ve taken them for a while, I’ve, uh, you know, built up a tolerance. But yeah, someone who hasn’t had it before, it could have a much bigger effect. Especially if you mix it with alcohol.

Zende: I– I am not following. Why are we talking about your mother’s mints?

Poppy: Because luna likes mints too. Normal ones. And somehow, mine got mixed up with hers.

Zende: Are you– are you saying you were high last night?

Luna: Yeah. I ate quite a lot of them. You know, ’cause I don’t know. I thought they were regular mints. I thought that I was just keeping my breath fresh. But little did I know.

[ Zende laughing ] I started getting really tired and– and then fuzzy headed, so I– I told rj that I have to go home.

Zende: And this is why you left early.

Luna: Yeah. I mean, I was exhausted. And so thirsty. Suddenly so thirsty. I’m guessing that’s a side effect or something.

Poppy: It can be. Yeah.

Luna: And so I walked outside to call a ride. That’s when I saw the water bottles in the guest house. I literally just went in and I downed the whole thing. I don’t remember sitting down or getting in your bed, but… I don’t know. I guess it makes sense because of how tired I was.

Zende: Are you, um, you’re– you’re telling me that you were drugged by your own mother?

Luna: Yeah. And that’s why I thought you were rj. ‘Cause I was, like, hallucinating or something.

Zende: How could you do this to her?

Poppy: I am horrified! Trust me!

Zende: Yeah, you should be! I mean, you didn’t just take something from luna. You took from me too. I really, really like your daughter. And I’ve been hoping, I– I’ve been– I thought that maybe we might share something beautiful, but… not like this.

Luna: Okay, great. Now zende knows. It’s time for someone else to know too. I have to tell rj.

A year after a heart attack,

Rj: In love? Yeah. Yeah, I totally am. But, hey, you know what? She is too.

Hope: Wait, wait, wait. You– you said it to each other?

Rj: Yeah.

Hope: Look, I– I think it’s– it’s wonderful. And in all seriousness, I– I have been working here with her for a while now, and I have to say, you did great. She’s so wonderful.

Rj: I definitely feel like I’m a– I’m a very fortunate guy.

Hope: Luna’s pretty fortunate too, to have such a caring, honest guy.

Rj: Yeah. I mean, I try. But luna, she’s just– she’s the epitome of honesty. Like, I think that’s one of the reasons why I’m so attracted to her. It’s just so easy for me to trust her.

Thomas: Is that sketch finished?

Rj: Yeah. Why?

Thomas: Get out of here.

Rj: Yeah.

Luna: I’m telling rj what happened.

Poppy: You can’T.

Luna: I have to, mom. Rj thinks that I’m– I’m a good person, and he believes in me. Like– like, when he looks at me, he sees someone that’s honest and committed and sweet and pure.

Poppy: You are.

Luna: I was. Our relationship was, but not anymore. Not after last night.

Poppy: No, don’t say that.

Luna: All because of your disgusting mints, mom. Now our relationship is tainted.

Poppy: Honey, no.

Luna: Yes, mom. It is. It’s ruined. I mean, I can’t believe that this is happening right now. All because of you and your damn drugs. Like, I can– I can barely look at you right now.

Zende: As much as I wanted what happened between us– I would hope for it– to find out why it happened? Look, I respect you wanting to be truthful, but your mother’s right. There is absolutely no reason rj needs to know.

Luna: Well, what about trust?

Zende: And telling him would break it!

Luna: Well, maybe rj would understand. Like, he’d appreciate that I’m confiding in him.

Zende: No one would understand, luna! No one would understand at all, ever. Not– I can hardly understand this. Look, telling him, you will just lose him. You will lose your reputation too. It’s just– telling him will do no good. It will just hurt you.

Poppy: And not to mention hurt rj too, and I know you don’t want that. Zende’s right.

Luna: Oh, my god, none of you guys understand what it’s like–

Poppy: No, honey, he’s right. He’s right. Look at me. Look at me. Rj’s expecting you. Go to him. Hug him. Kiss him. Remind yourself everything you’d be giving up if you told him. Rj doesn’t even know anything what happened last night. It was just a horrible mistake. Don’t say a word. Moving forward with node-positive

Hope: You know, all this talk about romance and love, it’s really got me thinking.

Thomas: Yeah?

Hope: Mm-hmm. About you. And this ring.

Luna: I saw rj. It was him. He was here. I don’t understand. This doesn’t make any sense. I saw his face. How could I make that up?

Zende: Are you saying you were high last night?

Luna: And that’s why I thought you were rj. I was like hallucinating or something. I have to tell rj.

[ Knock on door ]

Rj: Hi. Are you feeling better?

Luna: Um… not entirely.

Rj: Okay. Is there anything I can do to help? Um, I know you were with your mom earlier, right? You know, I know what it’s like when you’re sick and your mom takes care of you. It’s the best feeling in the world. I was actually with mine earlier, um, when we were talking and I was just, uh, I was just telling her I was worried about you, you know? Um, she was reassuring me that poppy would be taking good care of you. You two are close. Nozawa power, right? Luna, look at me. What’s going on? Does it have something to do with the party last night?

Luna: Yeah.

Rj: Well, I mean, if you’re– if you’re feeling guilty, don’T. I’m– I’m sorry. I’m really sorry. I shouldn’t have asked you to stay at the party. I mean, you were tired. You wanted to go home and everybody totally got it. I mean, you know, we all wanted you to stay. Of course, we all missed you, me most of all. And I, um, I– I don’t know. I just, I got back here and I thought about you, you know, at your apartment alone and I wish you were here and I could wrap you up in my arms.

Luna: Yeah, you have no idea how much I wish I was with you last night.

Rj: It’s– it’s okay. You’re here. You’re here. Come here. It’s okay. Everything’s all right. Hey, look at me. You’re so beautiful. And I’m– I’m so lucky to have you in my life.

Luna: It was rj’s face, mom. He was there and I thought that he was the one in bed with me and that’s why I did what I did. What are you telling me? That me waking up in zende’s bed this morning was because of you and your mints?

Poppy: It’s my fault. It’s all my fault.

Rj: Luna, come on, talk to me. What’s going on? You could tell me anything, anything at all.

Luna: I want to believe that.

Rj: You can. You can believe it. I’m here. I’m right here, okay? And all– all I want to do is help you. Tell me.

Luna: I love you so much and I always want to be honest with you and… there’s something that I need to tell you. Something that you need to know about last night.
