In this scene it is now early morning and Arnold and Ed are talking after Arnold has come home from a night of drinking. Ed broaches the subject of him and Arnold reuniting, but Arnold encourages Ed to return to Laurel where he has a ready-made socially acceptable life. Ed persists and just as he is about to tell Arnold of his love for him, David enters the room making preparations for another school day. David is able to glean the nature of the conversation between Ed and Arnold and tells Ed not to be too concerned about Arnold's initial denial, because Arnold always changes his mind. Soon after, Ed prepares to leave and Arnold indicates to Ed that the idea of their becoming a couple is a possibility. Ed is encouraged and leaves on a positive note.
