  • isabelle about the wedding decor: it's cobalt blue, elegant and masculine - very alec
  • what she means: it's gay, alec is gay
  • raphael in an earlier episode: *greets simon in an elegant blue suit*
  • isabelle to simon in that exact same suit: trim, makes you look like you work out (masculine)
  • what she means: it's gay and you're obviously not straight
  • simon: I borrowed this (elegant masculine gay blue) suit from raphael
  • isabelle: damn I'm good
Creo que lo que más me molesta
es esa incertidumbre
de no saber si dejaste huella
o simplemente fuiste una brisa en su vida.
