DAVE: You know, Tracy… I don’t know how to say this, but… Well, I notice you don’t seem to have any close friends at Millard. You seem to be kind of a loner. I know. I know it’s not by choice. I just mean, well, being the kind of person you are, it must be really difficult to find someone you can talk to.

Tracy, I’ve been watching you for going on two years now, and I think you are one of the most talented, hard-working, sensitive, attractive, brilliant students — no, human beings — I have ever met. I mean, you’re the real thing. Special. And I know sometimes people like you have to pay a price for their greatness, and that price is loneliness. I don’t know. Maybe I’m wrong. But it seems like you might need a friend.
