The Squeaky Clean Legacy, Chapter 17.2
“The truth shall make you fret”
Part Two
Elaine:

Nausicaa!

Nausicaa!

Elaine:

We
got
engaged!

Oh,
I’m
so
excited.
Will
you
be
my
bridesmaid?



Elaine:

Isn’t
it
wonderful?

I
am
so
happy.

Elaine:

Well,
to
Angus,
of
course!

You’re
going
to
love
him,
Daddy.

Elaine:

Ian!

You
came
over!

Thank
you!

Ian:

Of
course
I
came
over.

I’m
one
of
your
best
friends,
and
you
said
it

was
something
big.

Elaine:

I
got
engaged!



Ian:
Oh.

Well,
that’s
great.

Elaine:

I’ve
always
dreamed
of
this
day.

I
think
every
girl
does,
don’t

you?

Ian:

I
really
don’t
know.

I’ve
never
been
a
girl.
But
as
long
as
you’re

happy,
that’s
all
that
maIers.



Elaine:

And
I
wanted
to
tell
you
right
away,
Ian,
because
you’re
the
only

one
who
was
so
supporJve
and
I
just
knew
we
we...
Ian:

I
never
said
that.

You
know
I
never
said
that.



Elaine:

Really?

Ian:

You’re
always
fishing
for
compliments,
aren’t
you?

Why
do
you
do

that?

It
drives
me
out
of
my
mind.

Why
do
you
al...
Ian:

Oh,
forget
it.

I’m
really
happy
for
you,
Elaine.

Gawaine:

This
Council
of
the
Round
Table
is
now
in
session.

Parsifal:

This
isn’t
a
round
table,
Gawaine.

It’s
oblong.
...
Gawaine:

As
you
all
know,
Elaine
has
goIen
herself
engaged
to
a
Maxis
pre‐
made
playable,
thus
giving
us
all
untold
grief...
Parsifal:

Do?

We
have
to
support
her,
I
suppose.

Gawaine:

What?

Parsifal:

Brother,
if
you
had
paJence
and
purity
of
heart,
you
would
have

had
the
wisdom
to—

What
I’m
trying
to
say
is
...
Gawaine:

Oh.

Palomides:

What
were
we
supposed
to
do?

We
can’t
lie
and
tell
her
it’s

all
right.

You
know
it
isn’t.

Gawaine:

I
DO
know
it
isn’t,
but
Percy’s
right.

ConfronJng
her
doesn’t

work.
We’ll
have
to
think
of
something,
but
righ...
Palomides:

So
what
you’re
saying
is
that
we’re
going
to
wuss
out.

Parsifal
and
Gawaine:

Agreed.

Parsifal:

I’m
so
happy
for
you,
baby
sister,
and
I
know
you’re
going
to

be
.
.
.

Parsifal:

HNNNGH.

Gawaine:

It’s
really
preIy,
Elaine.

Elaine:
Thank
you!

Angus
has
wonderful
taste.

Elaine:

Thank
you,
Parsifal,
I’m
glad
you
like
it,
too.

Palomides:

I
don’t
like
him,
Elaine.

You
know
I
don’t
and
you
know
if
I

said
I
did,
it
would
be
a
lie.

But
I’ll
try
to...
Elaine:
Thank
you,
Palomides,
because
I
really
need
your
help.

I
need
you

to
help
me
figure
out
some
way
around
the
rules...
Palomides:

Have
you
lost
your
mind?

Palomides:

I
can’t
make
it
be
all
right!

You
know
it’s
not
right.

Thou

shalt
not
marry
a
playable.

What’s
next,
Elain...
Palomides:

I’m
not
going
to
tell
you
who
to
love.

I
won’t
tell
you
who

you
can
marry.

But
don’t
ask
me
to
help
you
do
...
Back
at
his
dorm,
Angus
writes
his
term
paper.

NoJce
something

interesJng?

No
ring.

Angus:

Dusty?
Are
you
busy?

Angus:

Do
you
have
Jme
for
me?

I
haven’t
talked
to
you
in
weeks.



Dusty:

I’ve
been
really
busy.

It
isn’t
anything
pe...
Angus:

If
you’re
that
busy,
you
probably
don’t
have
Jme
to
let
me
buy

you
dinner,
but
it’s
the
only
way
I’m
going
to
cat...
Lenore:
HUH.

Zane:

Isn’t
that
Angus
Pleasant?

Lenore:

Yes.

Zane:

Isn’t
he
engaged
to
your
friend
Elaine?

Lenore:

YES.

Zane:

So
if
he’s
engaged
to
your
friend
Elaine,
why
is
he
out
having

dinner
with
another
girl?

Lenore:

Bless
your
heart,
you
really
have
no
idea,
do
you,
Zane?

Zane:

No,
I
don’t.

Should
I?

It
makes
no
sense
to
me.

Lenore:

Oh,
Zane.

Never
change,
OK?

Zane:

I
don’t
understand
him,
but
.
.
.I
don’t
deserve
you,
Lenore.

Lenore:

What
on
earth
are
you
talking
about?

Lenore:

Oh,
GOD,
this
is
just
gross.



Lenore:

Excuse
me
a
sec,
Zane.

There’s
something
I
have
to
do.

Lenore:

Hi,
Angus.

You
don’t
know
me.
.
.

Lenore:

But
now
you
do.

Come
on,
Zane.

We’re
geZng
out
of
here.

Lionel:

Hi.

You
must
be
my
brother’s
fiancée.

Elaine:

I
don’t
know
if
I
should
be
happy
to
meet
you
or
not,
Lionel.


Angus
tells
me
you
buIered
the
stairs
when
you
we...
Lionel:

I
buIered
the
stairs,
huh?

Angus
has
a
very
.
.
.
interesJng

relaJonship
with
the
truth.

He’s
probably
inside,...
Dusty:

Angus?

Who’s
this
girl?

Angus:

Wait!

Wait,
Elaine!

Angus:

It
was
just
dinner.

Dusty’s
an
old
friend.

It
shouldn’t
be
such
a

big
deal.


Dusty:

Please,
do,
go
on
discuss...
Elaine:

But
it
should
have
been
a
big
deal,
Angus.

We’re
engaged
to
be

married.

You
love
me.

You
shouldn’t
even
want
...
Angus:

Look,
you
really
don’t
understand.

It’s
not
my
fault!


Dusty:

I
don’t
have
the
Jme
for
this
stuff.

I’ve
got
oth...
Angus:

You
see
me
and
Dusty‐‐
Dusty
and
me—we’re
Maxis
premades.


We’re
supposed
to
get
together.

We
were
going
steady
...
Elaine:

On
the
rebound?

Angus:

And
I
just
wanted
to
find
out
whether
or
not
I’m
sJll
physically

aIracted
to
her.

Which
I’m
not.

Well,
not
a
lot...
Elaine:

How
can
I
believe
that?

How
can
I
possibly
believe
that?

Angus:

Look,
it
was
your
idea
to
get
engaged,
not
mine.

It’s
not
my
fault.



Angus:

I
didn’t
mean
that.

Oh,
God,
I
didn’t
mean
that,
Elaine,
not
that

way.

You
HAVE
to
forgive
me.

I
sound
like
my...
Elaine:

He
didn’t,
he
didn’t,
he
never
did,
I
am
so
stupid.

Hedidn’thedidn’theneverdidI’msostupidhedidn’theneverdid.
.
....
Angus:

Are
you
going
to
forgive
me?

Please
say
you’re
going
to
forgive

me.

I
couldn’t
stand
it
if
you
didn’t
forgive
m...
Angus:

I
promise
I’ll
come
by
tomorrow.

I’ll
make
it
up
to
you
somehow.



Elaine:

Excuse
me
Angus
I
have
to
go
home
now,
bye.

Angus:

How’s
my
girl?

Elaine:

Angus,
let
go.

Angus:

What?

What
did
I
do?


Elaine:

What
did
you
do?

What
did
you
DO?

It’s
not
all
beIer
now.

You

can’t
cheat
yesterday
and
then
come
here
today
...
Elaine:

Get
away
from
me.

Don’t
call,
don’t
write,
don’t
let
me
ever,
ever

see
you
again.

Away,
now,
beforebeforebefor...
Angus:

Elaine,
wait,
no.

It
will
never,
ever
happen
again.

I
just
need

some
Jme
and
some
space.

Elaine:

Well,
you’re...
Max:

A_er
midnight.

And
nothing
has
happened,
as
I
knew
it
would
not.

The Squeaky Clean Legacy, 17.2.b: The Truth Shall Make You Fret, Part Two

  1. 1. The Squeaky Clean Legacy, Chapter 17.2 “The truth shall make you fret” Part Two
  2. 2. Elaine:

Nausicaa!

Nausicaa!

  3. 3. Elaine:

We
got
engaged!

Oh,
I’m
so
excited.
Will
you
be
my
bridesmaid?



  4. 4. Elaine:

Isn’t
it
wonderful?

I
am
so
happy.

  5. 5. Elaine:

Well,
to
Angus,
of
course!

You’re
going
to
love
him,
Daddy.

  6. 6. Elaine:

Ian!

You
came
over!

Thank
you!

  7. 7. Ian:

Of
course
I
came
over.

I’m
one
of
your
best
friends,
and
you
said
it
 was
something
big.

  8. 8. Elaine:

I
got
engaged!



  9. 9. Ian:
Oh.

Well,
that’s
great.

  10. 10. Elaine:

I’ve
always
dreamed
of
this
day.

I
think
every
girl
does,
don’t
 you?

  11. 11. Ian:

I
really
don’t
know.

I’ve
never
been
a
girl.
But
as
long
as
you’re
 happy,
that’s
all
that
maIers.



  12. 12. Elaine:

And
I
wanted
to
tell
you
right
away,
Ian,
because
you’re
the
only
 one
who
was
so
supporJve
and
I
just
knew
we
were
both
right.


I
sJll
 don’t
think
my
brothers
are
going
to
like
it,
especially
not
Palomides,
but
 I’m
glad
you
decided
to
be
my
friend
even
if
you
don’t
think
I’m
preIy.


  13. 13. Ian:

I
never
said
that.

You
know
I
never
said
that.



  14. 14. Elaine:

Really?

  15. 15. Ian:

You’re
always
fishing
for
compliments,
aren’t
you?

Why
do
you
do
 that?

It
drives
me
out
of
my
mind.

Why
do
you
always
have
to
ask?

 You’re
objecJvely
one
of
the
most
beauJful
women
I’ve
ever
seen,
and
 you
wreck
it
by
asking
all
the
Jme.

Why
can’t
you
look
in
a
mirror
once
 in
a
while?



  16. 16. Ian:

Oh,
forget
it.

I’m
really
happy
for
you,
Elaine.

  17. 17. Gawaine:

This
Council
of
the
Round
Table
is
now
in
session.
 Parsifal:

This
isn’t
a
round
table,
Gawaine.

It’s
oblong.
 Gawaine:
Shut
up,
Percy.

  18. 18. Gawaine:

As
you
all
know,
Elaine
has
goIen
herself
engaged
to
a
Maxis
pre‐ made
playable,
thus
giving
us
all
untold
grief
and
bringing
on
early
gray
hair.

 We’re
her
brothers.

We’re
sworn
to
protect
her.

What
do
we
do
now?

  19. 19. Parsifal:

Do?

We
have
to
support
her,
I
suppose.

  20. 20. Gawaine:

What?

  21. 21. Parsifal:

Brother,
if
you
had
paJence
and
purity
of
heart,
you
would
have
 had
the
wisdom
to—
 What
I’m
trying
to
say
is
that
this
might
not
have
happened
if
you
hadn’t
 come
down
on
Elaine
like
a
ton
of
bricks.

  22. 22. Gawaine:

Oh.

  23. 23. Palomides:

What
were
we
supposed
to
do?

We
can’t
lie
and
tell
her
it’s
 all
right.

You
know
it
isn’t.

  24. 24. Gawaine:

I
DO
know
it
isn’t,
but
Percy’s
right.

ConfronJng
her
doesn’t
 work.
We’ll
have
to
think
of
something,
but
right
now
I
have
no
idea
what
 that
is
and
you
don’t
know
how
much
I
hate
saying
that.

  25. 25. Palomides:

So
what
you’re
saying
is
that
we’re
going
to
wuss
out.

  26. 26. Parsifal
and
Gawaine:

Agreed.

  27. 27. Parsifal:

I’m
so
happy
for
you,
baby
sister,
and
I
know
you’re
going
to
 be
.
.
.

  28. 28. Parsifal:

HNNNGH.

  29. 29. Gawaine:

It’s
really
preIy,
Elaine.
 Elaine:
Thank
you!

Angus
has
wonderful
taste.

  30. 30. Elaine:

Thank
you,
Parsifal,
I’m
glad
you
like
it,
too.

  31. 31. Palomides:

I
don’t
like
him,
Elaine.

You
know
I
don’t
and
you
know
if
I
 said
I
did,
it
would
be
a
lie.

But
I’ll
try
to
like
him
beIer.

  32. 32. Elaine:
Thank
you,
Palomides,
because
I
really
need
your
help.

I
need
you
 to
help
me
figure
out
some
way
around
the
rules.

  33. 33. Palomides:

Have
you
lost
your
mind?

  34. 34. Palomides:

I
can’t
make
it
be
all
right!

You
know
it’s
not
right.

Thou
 shalt
not
marry
a
playable.

What’s
next,
Elaine?

Motherlode?

 MaxmoJves?



 We
all
follow
the
rules,
even
the
spares,
and
you
want
to
break
them
 because
you’re
the
heiress?
That
makes
no
sense
to
me.

Sorry,
it
doesn’t.

  35. 35. Palomides:

I’m
not
going
to
tell
you
who
to
love.

I
won’t
tell
you
who
 you
can
marry.

But
don’t
ask
me
to
help
you
do
something
I
think
is
 wrong.

  36. 36. Back
at
his
dorm,
Angus
writes
his
term
paper.

NoJce
something
 interesJng?

  37. 37. No
ring.

  38. 38. Angus:

Dusty?
Are
you
busy?

  39. 39. Angus:

Do
you
have
Jme
for
me?

I
haven’t
talked
to
you
in
weeks.


 Dusty:

I’ve
been
really
busy.

It
isn’t
anything
personal.
 Angus:

I
mean,
you’re
probably
daJng
someone
else
by
now
and
I
don’t
 even
know.
 Dusty:

No,
I
really
have
been
busy.

I’ve
been
at
work
and
the
library
and
 then
I
crash.

The
only
Jme
I
go
out
is
when
I
tend
bar.



  40. 40. Angus:

If
you’re
that
busy,
you
probably
don’t
have
Jme
to
let
me
buy
 you
dinner,
but
it’s
the
only
way
I’m
going
to
catch
up
with
you,
so.
.
.

 Dusty:
Maybe
just
this
once.

  41. 41. Lenore:
HUH.

  42. 42. Zane:

Isn’t
that
Angus
Pleasant?
 Lenore:

Yes.
 Zane:

Isn’t
he
engaged
to
your
friend
Elaine?
 Lenore:

YES.

  43. 43. Zane:

So
if
he’s
engaged
to
your
friend
Elaine,
why
is
he
out
having
 dinner
with
another
girl?

  44. 44. Lenore:

Bless
your
heart,
you
really
have
no
idea,
do
you,
Zane?

  45. 45. Zane:

No,
I
don’t.

Should
I?

It
makes
no
sense
to
me.

  46. 46. Lenore:

Oh,
Zane.

Never
change,
OK?

  47. 47. Zane:

I
don’t
understand
him,
but
.
.
.I
don’t
deserve
you,
Lenore.
 Lenore:

What
on
earth
are
you
talking
about?

  48. 48. Lenore:

Oh,
GOD,
this
is
just
gross.



  49. 49. Lenore:

Excuse
me
a
sec,
Zane.

There’s
something
I
have
to
do.

  50. 50. Lenore:

Hi,
Angus.

You
don’t
know
me.
.
.

  51. 51. Lenore:

But
now
you
do.

Come
on,
Zane.

We’re
geZng
out
of
here.

  52. 52. Lionel:

Hi.

You
must
be
my
brother’s
fiancée.

  53. 53. Elaine:

I
don’t
know
if
I
should
be
happy
to
meet
you
or
not,
Lionel.

 Angus
tells
me
you
buIered
the
stairs
when
you
were
in
high
school.

  54. 54. Lionel:

I
buIered
the
stairs,
huh?

Angus
has
a
very
.
.
.
interesJng
 relaJonship
with
the
truth.
 He’s
probably
inside,
if
you’re
sure
you
want
to
see
him.

  55. 55. Dusty:

Angus?

Who’s
this
girl?

  56. 56. Angus:

Wait!

Wait,
Elaine!

  57. 57. Angus:

It
was
just
dinner.

Dusty’s
an
old
friend.

It
shouldn’t
be
such
a
 big
deal.
 Dusty:

Please,
do,
go
on
discussing
me
as
though
I
wasn’t
even
there.

  58. 58. Elaine:

But
it
should
have
been
a
big
deal,
Angus.

We’re
engaged
to
be
 married.

You
love
me.

You
shouldn’t
even
want
to.

  59. 59. Angus:

Look,
you
really
don’t
understand.

It’s
not
my
fault!
 Dusty:

I
don’t
have
the
Jme
for
this
stuff.

I’ve
got
other
things
to
do.

  60. 60. Angus:

You
see
me
and
Dusty‐‐
Dusty
and
me—we’re
Maxis
premades.

 We’re
supposed
to
get
together.

We
were
going
steady
in
high
school.
I
 shouldn’t
even
have
been
a
date
drop.

I
guess
I
met
you
when
I
was
on
 the
rebound.

  61. 61. Elaine:

On
the
rebound?

  62. 62. Angus:

And
I
just
wanted
to
find
out
whether
or
not
I’m
sJll
physically
 aIracted
to
her.

Which
I’m
not.

Well,
not
a
lot.

And
that’s
a
good
thing,
 right,
because
at
least
I
know
and
it
won’t
happen
again.

  63. 63. Elaine:

How
can
I
believe
that?

How
can
I
possibly
believe
that?

  64. 64. Angus:

Look,
it
was
your
idea
to
get
engaged,
not
mine.

It’s
not
my
fault.



  65. 65. Angus:

I
didn’t
mean
that.

Oh,
God,
I
didn’t
mean
that,
Elaine,
not
that
 way.

You
HAVE
to
forgive
me.

I
sound
like
my
mother.

I
don’t
WANT
to
 be
my
mother.


 I
promise
you
it
will
never,
ever
happen
again.
I
love
you,
Princess.


  66. 66. Elaine:

He
didn’t,
he
didn’t,
he
never
did,
I
am
so
stupid.
 Hedidn’thedidn’theneverdidI’msostupidhedidn’theneverdid.
.
.


  67. 67. Angus:

Are
you
going
to
forgive
me?

Please
say
you’re
going
to
forgive
 me.

I
couldn’t
stand
it
if
you
didn’t
forgive
me.
 Elaine:
Didn’tneverdidI’msostupid
.
.
.

  68. 68. Angus:

I
promise
I’ll
come
by
tomorrow.

I’ll
make
it
up
to
you
somehow.



  69. 69. Elaine:

Excuse
me
Angus
I
have
to
go
home
now,
bye.

  70. 70. Angus:

How’s
my
girl?

  71. 71. Elaine:

Angus,
let
go.

  72. 72. Angus:

What?

What
did
I
do?


  73. 73. Elaine:

What
did
you
do?

What
did
you
DO?

It’s
not
all
beIer
now.

You
 can’t
cheat
yesterday
and
then
come
here
today
and
.
.
.touch
me.

It
 makes
me
sick
to
think
of
it
ohgodsostupidsostupidsostupid,
 ohgodyouneverdid.



  74. 74. Elaine:

Get
away
from
me.

Don’t
call,
don’t
write,
don’t
let
me
ever,
ever
 see
you
again.

Away,
now,
beforebeforebefore
.
.


  75. 75. Angus:

Elaine,
wait,
no.

It
will
never,
ever
happen
again.

I
just
need
 some
Jme
and
some
space.
 Elaine:

Well,
you’re
going
to
have
PLENTY
OF
IT.

  76. 76. Max:

A_er
midnight.

And
nothing
has
happened,
as
I
knew
it
would
not.

  77. 77. Max:

P.

.Papa?
