|Season 4 / Episode 22: - Back to the Future|
Ben Covington: [after Felicity wakes up from the "dream"] Look, I know you don't want to hear what I have to say. [pause] But I am so sorry for what I did. It was stupid and immature. And it was unforgivable. And I know this is an impossible thing for me to ask. But you have to find a way to forgive me. Because I don't want to live my life without you.
Felicity: Oh my god. That's exactly what you said in my dream.
Ben Covington: What did you say?
Felicity: I didn't say anything. But I know what I was thinking. Which is that I don't want to live my life without you either.
Ben Covington: I'm so sorry. I'm sorry.
Felicity: I know.
Ben Covington: Does this mean...?
Felicity: Yes. I forgive you.
|Season 1 / Episode 22: - Felicity Was Here|
Felicity: I can't go with you, because that would make me the devil.
Ben Covington: Driving with me makes you the devil?
Felicity: I was in bed last night, just trying to figure it all out, like, what it would mean if we went together.
Ben Covington: How come everything has to have so much meaning? I mean, I've never met someone so desperate for meaning. Look, I'm leaving tonight, are you gonna come with me?
Felicity: I can't be having this conversation, because I am the devil.
Ben Covington: You keep saying you're the devil, I'll tell you what: You are not the devil.
Felicity: What if I am, then what?
Ben Covington: Then, I'd still want you to come with me.
Felicity: You would not.
Ben Covington: Yes, I would.
Felicity: Okay, first of all, you would not want me to go with you if I were the devil. And secondly, it's not just us, I mean, you know, there are other people involved.
Ben Covington: Yeah, but I like you, I can't help it. I mean, you're crazy! And you analyze everything, and that kind of scared me at first. But I don't know, you're really smart about things, and you've been a good friend to me, and I really like you.
Ben Covington: Look, I... I understand why you rather see Felicity with someone like Noel. Someone who's obviously going to make it. And probably long before, I mean, I figure out what I'm going to be doing with my life. But I always remember this one thing a teacher said, which was, all the interesting people she knew they had no idea what they were going to do with their lives when they were 20. So chances are, I'm going to turn out to be a pretty interesting guy. Look, for some reason, Felicity cares about me. And on a good day, I feel like I might become everything she sees in me. It is because of that, it is because of about a million other reasons that she means pretty much the world to me.
Meghan: This is how I know Felicity still likes you. You ready?
Ben Covington: Yeah. Wha... what is it?
Meghan: Sarah McLachlan.
Ben Covington: What?
Meghan: When Felicity showed up last year, head over heels for you, Sarah McLachlan was all she listened to. If "Fumbling Towards Ecstasy" wasn't in the CD player, it was only so "Solace" could get a little airplay. I started calling it 'Ben music'... not to her face but behind her back. But then it went away, and I thought Sarah was gone for good. I almost started celebrating. And then you showed up again. You offered Felicity this cross-country trip of a lifetime, which means I got to memorize every lyric from "Surfacing"... all 10 songs! This year started off McLachlan-heavy, until the big break-up, and then all of Felicity's hair went away, and so did Sarah. Until you guys broke into the pool. Now maybe it was a coincidence, but guess who started to make a comeback? It was gradual, but constant, and now if you want me to, I can sing any song from "Mirrorball" which really annoys the hell out of me! So if you're ever curious about whether Felicity has the hots for you, just check her boom box.
Ben Covington: That's the dumbest theory I've ever heard.
Sean Blumberg: Well, I buy it.
Meghan: Let me put it this way, Greg knows how to work it. If she spends too much time with him, Sarah's going back on the shelf.
