After Parke mentions how she was with Alex at the dance, Sophie is quick to say that she was just with him as a way of keeping peace between Daniel and Brooke.
In the Eagles dormitory, Sophie is trying to record herself, as the earthquake rumbles on. In the recording she introduces herself as a student of the Greenhouse, going onto say that this earthquake she could remember, before beginning to conclude her footage, just as Parker interrupts, telling her that he had always wanted them to be together.
