Maxie says she could find any “computer nerd” if that’s what she wanted. She claims to have “felt sorry” for Spinelli and only “put up with” him because of Georgie. Maxie claims she “slept with” Spinelli because she felt nobody else “ever would.” Maxie says she’s finished with Spinelli and suggests he goes to Winnifred. Spinelli leaves.
