“You’re not Korean”

MRS. KIM: He’s not Korean.

DAVE: Lane? Hey, Lane? Is everything all right?
LANE: You’re not Korean.

Just as Mrs Kim has blindsided Lane, so she too receives a shock when Lane says she wants to go to the prom with Dave. It’s clear that Mrs Kim quite likes Dave, but has never considered him as someone her daughter might date – Lane and Dave have been so very careful not to let anyone know they are seeing each other. Mrs Kim has always imagined Lane dating a Korean boy, and can’t yet get past that.

Lane is naturally devastated. The red roses in the scene seem to offer hope for the future.
