After he is implicitly threatened by Martin, Simon asks Abby and him if they want to rehearse their lines for the play at Waffle House to avoid Martin sharing his secret.
Blue describes how he was unable to come out to his father at their Hanukkah celebration, and while responding Simon lets the revealing information of his English teacher's name slip out.
Freaking Casanova?! Well I'm very sorry, but I hope coming out to your mom goes well! And thanks for telling me (even though Mr. Wise says I'm not grammatical).
I wasn't able to come out to my dad - he got me a book by "freaking Casanova!" I think I'm going to come out to my mom first.
After a visit to Waffle House with Martin, Simon comes out to Abby while they drive to his house.
I haven't told anyone yet, but I'm gay.
Simon has an email conversation with Blue, who tells him that he came out to his mom and that it went well.
I'm so proud of him!
Want to practice your lines at WaHo?
Simon has fun hanging out with Cal Price and Abby during some down time in rehearsal; meanwhile, Martin is furious at Simon for "humiliating" him by being close to Abby after she rejected him (unbeknownst to Simon).
D*%n it, Spier!
Simon emails Blue about coming out and why he thinks everybody should have to go through the awkward process rather than just non-straight people.
Why don't straight people have to come out? I feel like everybody should have to.
More like the Homo Sapiens Agenda!
I agree! This sounds like the Homosexual Agenda :-)
