St. Elmo’s Fire (film)
Wendy moves into her own place, where Billy comes to visit. He says he has finally agreed to divorce his wife, and pays back some of the money he owed Wendy. He also announces he will be moving to New York to go for his dreams and pursue a full time career playing his saxophone. He explains that he’d spent so much time trying to “be like Alec” (meaning being a member of the 9-5 type work world, because it seemed to be expected of him) but it wasn’t who he was. His heart has really always been in his music and Wendy of course, who knows him so well, recognizes this as she repeats in the movie, “You’re really talented, Billy.” He asks her for a “going away present,” which turns out to be them making love.
