Rebecca replies that, yes, everything does have to come to an end, including 'us'. Noah tells Rebecca that when his first article was published, he thought he couldn't be happier, but then he fell in love with Rebecca. He says that he had an incredible two years, and wouldn't want that opportunity to be taken away from anyone else.

Around a makeshift wedding cake, they all share a sentence or two to sum up their time at buzz.
