It left so much open to speculation. Probably the best part about the episode.

I kind of like that when they leave room for interpretation. It sort of encourages the imagination of fans. What was PB and Marcie's dynamics like? Why did Marcie give PB the shirt? etc, etc. It allows the mind to wander and become that much more engaged in the story itself by wondering and (in many cases) contemplating their friendship (or more-than-friend"ship") and what it was like before they grew apart. It's cool, cause they aren't treating their fans like simple consumers, but allowing them consider what was meant by what was said and, more importantly, what was not said.

Sorry, I rambled, got a bit theoretical there. ^^;

Yeah, those are the benefits of our dear friend Subtext.
I expect we'll be given more hints towards whatever past they had but so far in the show they've only ever talked to each other in one episode.
But I'm afraid that there will be some sort of closure - despite the fact that closure is something that we tell ourselves we want, we never end up happy with it.
So let us continue with beloved subtext for now! :D

As a Buddhist would say, nothng is ever quite the way we imagine it will be, and closure never is. So, lay that subtext on me. It's more fun this way. :XD:

That makes a lot of sense. I didn't think of that. Shows how much I have to learn about relationships in general. Haha

This is wonderful! It's so sweet to see them get to know each other. =)

Personally I hope they go with the story that they are friends who don't realize they have a crush on each other (but they start to realize in What Was Missing). hehe I want to see the relationship blossom on the show, and I'd be disappointed if we missed out on a prior relationship between the two.

same here! i feel like they'd been through a break up- got that vibe from the movies episode

Interesting, looks like I'll have to rewatch that one. The part that makes me think they're just friends (for now) is when PB said said that the shirt meant a lot to her. Like, if they had been together before, it seems to me that it would have already been obvious that the shirt would have meant a lot to her, break up or no. Plus PB was so shy about it, like someone with an unspoken crush.

Oy, I need to see what's up with them on the show!!!

Oh and to add to my previous comment (so it makes more sense =P) I guess I would have expected a line more along the lines of "It *still* means a lot to me" or "I couldn't get rid of it"--something that more heavily implies a break up if that was the case. =)

Or Was it Freindship.

i wanted to leave it just as vague as the show did- because i LOVE the idea that they were in a relationship but i can't bring myself to accept it until the show does XD
