Taking a shot at The Bistro, Alex laments how badly he feels for messing up everything for everybody. It was simpler when he was shallow and self-absorbed, but meeting her changed everything.

But his going to therapy to change is a big deal. He shouldn’t give up after one bad day. She likes this version of him way better than the last one.
