View Transcript Lissa: Hey, Alex... you, uh, look kinda down.
Alex [whose new design features an orange t-shirt and periwinkle blue shorts]: Gee, what tipped you off?
The fact that I've been forcing myself not to cry 24/7 for *four fucking months*?

Alex: Sorry, that was... unnecessary.
Look, ever since I helped hitch Steve and Robyn, I've just been...
...sad.

Alex: Steve was like, the last single guy around my age that I knew.
Now that he's with Robs, I'm... the only one of us that's single, Tiny David not withstanding.
I don't like it.

Lissa: Dude, for as long as I've known you, you've been *fine* with being single.
What... what changed?

Alex: I don't... I don't know.
I just feel so lonely.
And it hurts.

Lissa: Hey, don't get yourself down, Alex.
You got us, and we'll help you find someone.
Things'll get better. I promise.
Alex: I hope to god you're right.
