Be as it may, Carol and Melvin paths intersect and they change each other’s lives. Both travel with Simon to Baltimore to ask his parents for financial help. He’s broke and facing a slow recovery from that vicious attack, but Carol’s friendship turns out to be the best palliative of all. Melvin gets jealous and makes all kinds of mistakes in order to conquer Carol’s heart. She eventually falls under the unusual charm of a man she used to dislike in a huge way and the OCD patient learns how to express his own feelings to make her feel good about herself.
