Three days later, Alice calls Bob and tells him that while she still cares about him, it just wasn't meant to be (or that she has some personal issues that she needs to work on before she can be happy in any kind of relationship), and that he should move on.
But he still has feelings for Alice, and dumps his new girlfriend for her.
Defied: Alice decides right then and there that she wants to pursue a relationship with Bob again, and they once again become an Official Couple.
Discussed: "Face it, Bob. It's over. It didn't work out the first time, so what makes you think it would work out again?"
Played For Laughs: Bob goes through a lot of trouble to win Alice back (rehearsing a big speech, buying expensive flowers, navigating a tough Godzilla-related traffic jam on the way to her house, etc.) only for the door to be answered by Alice's new boyfriend.
Played For Drama: Bob goes through all kinds of trouble to win Alice back, only to have her mother answer the door and state that Alice has committed suicide.
