Spinelli is sitting at Jakes on the phone. Maxie sees him and says she didn't know he was gonna be there (er um Maxie he hasn't reported to you his whereabouts in 11 months). She even apologizes for not seeing that he was on the phone. He asks her if he has heard from the Original Blonde one and mentions all the messages he has received from her (to locate Luke), and her taking over Haunted Star. Maxie fills him in. He wanted to know if he should assist her. Maxie doesn't think so. Maxie says its like his book, where every case ends up ok in the end. Maxie went on about the book. Praising him. He calls her Maximista. She points out its been a while and she thought he never would again. Matt, Robin, Patrick see them and comes over. They discuss why they are late. Maxie gets up and leaves poor Spinelli at the table alone.
Spinelli watches/listens as the 4 of them enjoy themselves. He gets up and starts to walk away. Robin calls him over to enjoy fries with them. Robin admits she hasn't read his book yet, but hears its great. Maxie says its amazing. She says it made 3 of the summers best reads list. Robin gets him a chair. Robin says she always wanted to write a book, and wants to know how it feels. Maxie says she would have invited him over to join them, but she assumed he was working. Maxie points to Matt/Patrick saying she assumes they haven't read the Secret Life of Damian Spinelli, but they should because its excellent. She then gets a phone call. Maxie goes to take the call from Kate. Patrick wants to buy another round as he has never sat and had a drink with a real author before. Matt wants to know what he he drinking. Orange soda it is. Maxie comes back complaing about Lulu. Maxie starts to choke. Spinelli askes if she is ok.
Matt does the hylimic on her. Spinelli apologizes. She says to Matt that he really is her hero.
