Plot

A young adult Lisa practices her graduation speech in an empty stadium when she notices that Nelson is pushing training equipment into the storage room. The two of them talk about their past together and the time they sort of dated. Nelson then takes Lisa back to his house, which is the bell tower of the Memorial Church. The two of them spend the entire night talking to each other and watch the sun rise the next morning. Bart then comes up the tower, looking for Lisa because the family wants to have breakfast together. Bart ends up giving Nelson his rent money then the family goes off to breakfast together. Later, Lisa performs her speech, with Nelson watching from his bell tower. As the family leaves the town, Lisa imagines what her life would be like with Nelson. Not liking what she thought about, she leaves town without saying goodbye.

Five years later, Lisa and Hubert Wong are married and on a train leaving Springfield. Hubert has become a successful technology entrepreneur and became Time Person of the Year. As they talk to each other, Snake is chased by a bounty hunter called Rott. As Snake tries to escape the train, Nelson stops him. Nelson and Lisa reunite again and Nelson reveals that he and Rott are in a relationship together. Hubert is annoyed to find that Lisa used to have a thing for Nelson, since Nelson used to bully him. The two couples then tell their relationship stories. Hubert proposed to Lisa on the moon, whilst Rott brought Nelson in as he had an overdue library book. When Lisa and Rott leave to get drinks, Hubert rips into Nelson, thinking that his life is so much better than his and that he has the last laugh, since he got Lisa and Nelson didn't. Nelson then wedgies Hubert and hangs him from a coat hook. When Lisa finds Hubert like that, she tells Nelson that he hasn't changed.

Another five years later, Nelson and Lisa meet again in a phone store, owned by Hubert. Nelson reveals that he and Rott broke up, and Lisa reveals that she and Hubert broke up too. The two of them go and get coffee together at Buzz Light Roast and come close to giving a relationship a chance. Before they do though, Hubert teleports in and asks Lisa to take him back because he has changed. Hubert then uses drones to apologize to Lisa, as well as write her graduation speech in the sky. Lisa agrees to take Hubert back after Nelson tells her to go for it. Nelson gets annoyed at himself for letting Lisa go and gives himself a wedgie.

Four months later, Jimbo and Sophie are getting married and they ask Nelson and Lisa to be their best man and maid of honor respectively. They both agree and go to the wedding, but are surprised to find the other is there. During the wedding, Nelson gets upset and leaves, as he sees the relationship that Jimbo and Sophie have as the relationship he could have had with Lisa. Lisa looks at Hubert, who is just on his phone looking at a "divorce wizard", before she goes after Nelson. Lisa tells Nelson that she wants to be with him and the two of them kiss.
