In this scene from “Just Friends With Benefits”, Stephanie looks to pop culture and God to cleanse her of a sin committed to love interest Ryan.
“When I closed my eyes to go to sleep that last night in the Outer Banks, I imagined asking my fairy godmother to grant me not three, but a measly single wish-that I had never broken up with Ryan. And I drafted in my mind a persuasive essay to Mr. Rourke explaining why I deserved a spot on Fantasy Island; a place where Ryan would certainly forgive me for my sin. And I thought about how great it would be if I could just ask Bill and Ted to make one extra stop on their Excellent Adventure, to 48 hours prior, before I had left that stupid fucking voicemail to Ryan. In a last ditch effort, I sat up in bed and looked up at the ceiling. “Please God,” I whispered, looking over at a sleeping Denise. “Please let there be a message waiting for me from Ryan when I wake up.”
