Dex falls in love with Syd and realizes the emptiness of his life. He tells his disciple not to imitate him, "I'm not sure I want to be me anymore." Syd returns to her set designing career in New York. She decides to phone Dex, so they can get some closure on what happened between them. While leaving a message on his answering machine in Taos, she hears, then sees, the new Dex ,who has come to be with his beloved, tripping over the stage sets.

Guy Holladay

Dex: Why would I lie about a spider?
Syd: You lied about the spider so you could get in my tent, so.
Dex: So what?
Syd: So you could... you know, make a move on me.
Dex: You are such a self-aggrandizing, solipsistic ego queen, you don't even know.
Syd: Did you just say solipsistic?
Dex: I most certainly did.
Syd: I love that word.
Dex: I do too.
Syd: Don't even think about it.
Dex: ...solipsistic.
