Will is at Horton Town Square. Marlena arrives.

Marlena: Will. I'm glad I found you. I'd like to talk to you, after that last thing you said.

Will: I don't think so.

Marlena: Why don't you just look at me for a second. You don't have to talk, not if you don't want to. But I can't believe you want to handle this all by yourself. I can't believe you don't want someone to help you and share your life with.

Will: I do. I'm tired of fighting what I know is true.

Marlena: Good for you.

Will: I'm gay. I said it and... You know, this time, I'm- no fixies- I'm not going to take it back. I'm gay.

*

Marlena: You told me you were gay, and the sky didn't fall and... you told me you were gay... and I still love you with all my heart.

They hug.

Will: Thank you.

Both: [chuckling]

Will: Listen, I'm so sorry. How I... I was so- I lost my temper with you earlier and I've been so difficult. And I- I'm fully aware of how supportive and patient you've been with me. And I want you to know how much that means to me and... how much I love you.

Marlena: I do know that. And you must never worry about apologizing to me. I'm just so glad you were finally able to admit your true feelings.

Will: Finally.

Marlena: Mm-hmm.

Will: I know. You must think I'm pretty lame, because, like, I couldn't even admit something that was obvious to you- so obvious to pretty much everybody.

Marlena: No. I think you're one of the bravest men I've ever known. And I am exquisitely proud of you.

Will and Marlena are eating at a table. Will is hogging the dessert.

Marlena: Pardon me, in the middle, if you don't mind.

Will: [mouth full] Excuse me.

[laughter]

Will: Can't believe I said those two words. I'm... [slurps] gay. I'm homosexual. I'm a- [slurps]

Marlena: Mmm, I think that's four words. But how do you feel, know that you've said it?

Will: Hungry. Just kidding. Relieved. So relieved. I'm mean, it's like I can't believe that just saying those two words makes such a big difference, you know, but it does. And-

Marlena: I'm so glad to hear you say that.

Will: What Sonny- Sonny told me, and it's true, it's like this huge weight has just been lifted from my shoulders.

Marlena: It is so good for me to see you finally feeling at ease with yourself.

Will: I wouldn't go so far as to say... "at ease"

Marlena: Why? Are you having some little doubts?

Will: No, no, no. I mean, I'm definitely gay. But, um, you know, I'm just worried about what that means. You know, I'm worried about my future a little bit.

Marlena: Well, sure. It's natural to be a little worried about your future no matter what.

Will: I know you said that it's going to work itself out, but... I don't know, I feel like I just gave up a couple of my hopes, you know, a couple of my dreams- several of my plans. I don't know, it's just like, you know, now what?

Will and Marlena are walking together through the square.

Marlena: You've taken a very big step today. I think we can save the decisions for the rest of your life until tomorrow.

Will: Yeah. I know it's gonna take a lot of time to figure things out.

Marlena: But, you know, remember that being gay does not mean you've got to give up on your dreams.

Will: I know.

Marlena: They may just take a little different shape than you're expecting, that's all. And we all have that happen to  ourselves.

Will: Yeah.

Marlena: Will... I'm curious... What got you to this today? Did you find somebody that interests you?

Will: No. No, lets not rush things, okay?

Marlena: Okay, okay.

Will: I'm not ready to date guys yet. I'm not- I don't know. I don't know think I'm ready to be that open yet.

Marlena: Is there anybody else you feel you can talk to?

Will: Well, Sonny, of course. But, um, I mean, he'll be okay because I think he already knows. You know, if he has a brain cell in his head he'll- I'm sure he knows.

Marlena: He'll be a very good friend for you, and somebody you can talk to.

Will: Yeah. I mean, I talk to him a lot already. I- I just don't want him- I don't want to turn him into, like, my gay-life coach or anything. Seriously.

Marlena: [laughs] Ahh! What about your other friends?

Will: Well, the ladies will be crushed.

Marlena: Of course.

Will: Of course. No, I think they'll be okay. Um, except for I'm a little worried about, uh, Gabi. Because I think she might feel betrayed. You know, I think, um, she'll think I purposely led her on and that I wasted her time.

Marlena: Wow. But, knowing Gabi, I think she'll understand that you were confused, and that you never meant to mislead her.

Will: I hope so.

Marlena: The big one- your parents. You thought about telling Sami and Lucas?

*

Will: You know, I don't think I should. I don't think I should come out to either of my parents.

Marlena: Well, they may surprise you.

Will: Mom's not gonna surprise me. She always makes everything a production starring herself...

Marlena: [laughs]

Will: Written by herself. Produced by herself.

Marlena: Yeah. All righty. What about your dad?

Will: I don't know. After our conversation earlier, I learned he has no idea. He's not gonna be thrilled.

Marlena: Hey, Will, don't sell him short.

Will: I don't want to. I mean, it's just that he didn't like Sonny and me messing around, because he was afraid about what other people were gonna think about me.

Marlena: Honey, no matter what you decide, please remember, your parents love you so much. Almost as much as I do.

Will: Yeah. I know. Thank you. I never could have gotten this far without you.

Marlena: I'm not sure that's true. You are such a strong young man. I'm so proud of you. And your road may be a little bumpy. It won't be easy all the time. But you are going to be happy. And no one deserves it more than you do.

Good thing the office is empty today. I was laughing my ass off. I can't wait to see this. I think I might need to put it on my phone for re-watching. (I have the kiss and the coffee card incident on there already.) This is so wonderfully hilarious.

Will: Mom's not gonna surprise me. She always makes everything a production starring herself...

Marlena: [laughs]

Will: Written by herself. Produced by herself.



And of course my dirty mind...

I'm... [slurps] gay. I'm homosexual. I'm a- [slurps]

They may just take a little different shape than you're expecting
