Haha. Yeah, she did, but I think Jordan was hinting that she should come. With his "whatever happens, happens" philosophy, he didn't want to make too big a deal out of it though. Did you notice that he looks back at her when he leaves the room? I think he actually is a little nervous/excited about Angela. In general, I'm surprised at how forward Angela is with Jordan. It took a lot of guts for her to ask him to a movie in front of his friends. I couldn't do that at the age of 15.

I've always wondered why she would pick that film. The Bicycle Thief is certainly not a date film. It's depressing! It's a great film, but the hero doesn't win in the end. I left the film feeling emotionally gutted. It would have been hard to have a conversation about the film afterwards and then try to be romantic. I do think that she wanted to look smart in front of Jordan, and leaning in to whisper the subtitles to him might have crossed her mind. :)

Yeah, I agree. A lot has been said. But this is one of my favorite episodes, if not my number one. I love the tiny hints of vulnerability that Jordan shows to Angela.
