PRESTON: So, it turns out Amanda and I weren’t meant to be. Which, you know, sucks — but at least… well at least I finally know. And now it’s over. And who knows? Maybe nothing happens for a reason. Maybe that’s all bullshit. So now I can just go off and – meet somebody else. Somebody who really is right for me. And next time I won’t wait four years just to talk to her… On the other hand, maybe this was all some sort of hero’s trial, you know? Something to make me… come out a better person. ‘Cause in a way, I think I may have really learned something about myself. Look, I’m trying to make the best of it okay? Would’ve been cool to make out with her, though.
