The Comeback
Mresuperstar
@547984: Office job might be the only option. Pfft

@Ian Butler: So, you don't believe Travis?

@sutty68: You might be on to something. Wink

@baseballlover312: About time you should some emotion. :lol:

@547984: "Travis, any comments?"

Everything he said is right. I'm not going to argue with him. I made a mistake and I'm going to have to live with it. The only thing I can do now is try and push forward. Hopefully I can earn some of your respect back along the way.

@The Hobbit: I always have a plan. Cool

@lluuiiggii: Thanks for the kind words. The Joseph reference is referring to the actor's name that plays Tom in the movie. As you can see above Travis did agree with Baseball, and the last 2 episodes move forward so no jumping back. And the remaining two episodes may or may not have to deal with Chloe... :lol: Okay, they do. Wink

"It's all gone Travis. We don't have any more money saved up."

I knew this moment was coming eventually, it was unavoidable.

"Well, what do you want me to do?
You can't take care of these kids by yourself.
And last time I checked... I'm still banned from cycling anyways!"

"There are more jobs in the world than just cycling Travis!
Now would be a great time if you had one.
They are going to kick us out of our apartment if
we don't pay the rent in the next 5 days."

"Then we move back to USA, you know I can't get a job here because
I can't speak Spanish. It would be best for us to just go home."

"Then what? It's back to the farm life? I don't want to do that Travis.
We are better than that. I was enjoying the life we were living."

"And I tried everything in my power to keep that, how did that turn out?"

"Really Travis? Everything? You used performance enhancing drugs!
What kind of example are you trying to set for your children?"

I was speechless. Chloe was right. I couldn't argue with that.

"Nothing to say? I thought so.
Travis I'm starting to think we might not work out.
I just can't comprehend why you thought PEDs was the answer.
What happened to hard work and dedication? You threw all that away.
I don't know if that's the man I want to spend the rest of my life with."

I have a bad feeling about T and C... The fact that got used to the way they were living makes me think she will date a team mate of T soon Grin

Btw, very good episode going here. Never been such a huge fan of neither this movie nor ZD (especially as my brother became kind of a fanboy of 500dos), but i like that kind of story telling! Looking forward to the next comeback Smile

"Come on man get up. It's not the end of the world.
I mean she hasn't filed the divorce papers yet, that's a good sign."

"I blew it Kyle, it's over. It's only a matter of time."

"Seriously get up! I have been letting mope around my place for 2 months now.
And I can't take that bouncing of the tennis ball on the floor anymore.
I was going to suggest that we hit up the club like old times but..."

Kyle points to baby Joseph taking a nap on the floor.

"You got stuck with this little fella. So, instead let me take care of this guy
and you should go out and hit the town tonight. It's LA anything can happen."

"Really? I'm still technically married, that would be cheating."

"No, no, no... I'm not suggesting that.
Just go out and talk to people, interact, doing something.
You are driving me crazy just laying on my couch.
Who knows, you might even find yourself a job."

He was right. I had to do something.
Here I was in LA over 1,500 miles away from Chloe and Zooey
(they decided to fly back to Kansas as I went west to California).

Chloe said she needed time away from all the drama to help clear
her mind and decided if this marriage was going to work or not.
I don't blame her, I needed time alone by myself as well.

These past 500 days have been the craziest of my life.
And it all started when this little guy was brought into the world.

What a life he has had so far. A name change would probably
seem normal to him and it actually has a nice ring to it.

A few hours later I got the phone call. It was official.
Chloe had sent in the divorce papers.

The life I knew 500 Days ago had officially crumbled in front of my eyes.
It was time to pick up the pieces and start over. Rebuild. And get her back.

I had to make another Comeback.

I honestly don't like Travis anymore. Especially after the dopingWink

I'll still follow, maybe he can be a better guy in his 19th comeback.

He can get her back. He has to show her you've changed.

NO MORE DOPING!!!!!!!!!! and take care of Joseph like he was your bike Wink

They are my tips. Good luck with your 19th comeback.

You should make that the name. Travis Newton - My 19th Comeback Grin

@welker3257: 19th Comeback? I only remember 3 or 4. Pfft

@Jakstar22: Tips taken. Wink

@All: I got a special Behind the Scenes episode planned with extended and deleted scenes from Season 11 (along with the timeline). I hope to have that up in the next day or so. I have started on Season 12 but I'm still trying to figure out where it's heading plot wise. Smile

Nuggets From 500 Days of Summer

Disclaimer - Author note and introduction based off the opening of 500 Days. "Especially you Lance. Bitch." Lance referring to Lance Armstrong.

S11E1 - None, but I will bring up the headings are colored based on the mood.
The brighter colors mean good things while dark colors are bad things.

S11E2 - Baby named after Joseph Gordon-Levitt, actor that plays Tom.

S11E6 - Bench is from the movie.

S11E7 - Faucet joke from the Ikea scene.

S11E12 - Picture from the breakup scene.

S11E13 - Joseph Newton-Levelle --> Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Bouncing of the tennis ball taken from Tom trying to get his life back together.
Last picture is from the movie. Losing Chloe compares to letting Summer go.

Day 99: Travis get PED's from Kyle.
Day 103: Travis and Chloe's 1st Wedding Anniversary.

Day 500: wow, Travis really is a stand up guy at the moment.

Gotta say, it was a risky season for a story-writer to write, so congratulations on that. Some people will not like it at all, so it takes courage to do it. Very nice.

Curious where it's going now, though, with the ban Smile
