Ted: Gone Out

"Gone out" the note said. Martha looked at it again, flipped it over to look at the back, hoping to see something she might have missed. A note and a pair of shoes. After eight years. No more courtesy than that. Shit. Martha threw the offensive shoes into the alley. He'll be sorry if somebody came along and stole his shoes. That'd show him.

Frank, returning home, stood in the shadows, listening to Martha rant. Dammit. He had left his shoes to show that he was coming back, but still she bitched. He put on his shoes and kept going.

Michele: In His Shoes

He was knocked right out of his shoes.

I always thought it was just a saying. A person couldn’t physically be knocked out of snug, laced up shoes, right?

I really don’t remember much except a blur of motion and Chris’s pained scream.

When I opened my eyes, Chris was laying on a stretcher, his face and chest covered with someone’s I ❤NY sweatshirt. His legs and feet were uncovered and I noticed the socks. Black socks.

I found one shoe in front of the car that hit him, the other near the curb.

I took them home with me.
