I’ve Never Done This Before is the four-hundred twentieth video in the lonelygirl15 video series. It is also the tenth video of season three. This video is correctly called "I’ve Never Done This Before", with a punctuation apostrophe (right single quotation mark) instead of a typewriter apostrophe - it resides here for easier accessibility.
(Gina is lying on her stomach on a bed with a notepad in front of her.)
Gina: Hey. Can you see me? I've never done this before, but it's kinda cool. Weird, but it's cool.
(Gina looks up and turns the camera around to show Daniel.)
Daniel: Hey. Am I bothering you? Can I-?
Gina: Yeah- No, of course.
Daniel: Here, let me help you out. (takes the camera from Gina and turns it around to show her) You can't just put it on the bed... (sets the camera down on a chair) ...or you won't see anything.
(Gina laughs as Daniel plays with the zoom. He then dives onto the bed.)
Daniel: Aaaand... (lands on a piece of paper) Sorry.
Gina: Hi. (giggles)
Daniel: Hi. (nudges Gina) Smile! (Gina smiles awkwardly at the camera) Okay, now you can go. Just talk.
Daniel: Um... Well, let's start with these! (looks at Gina's drawings) You turn out, like, ten of them a day. (nudges Gina) With your eyes closed. Why do you do that?
Gina: I don't know. When I start drawing, I just- I try to clear my mind. I try not to see anything.
Daniel: And how do you know what to draw?
Gina: (shrugs) I don't. I mean, not really. It's kind of the whole point. It's a way for me to... access the unconscious?
Daniel: So it's like meditation? (pokes Gina with his elbow) You're like a zen master?
Gina: Yeah. (grins)
Daniel: (laughs and pushes Gina over) Whatever! Geez.
Gina: It's, uh... It's actually something that I taught myself during the study - the Hart Study. During the worst parts, I'd... I'd be so tired and I couldn't remember anything. And I felt like I couldn't feel anything. Do you know what I mean? (Daniel silently nods his head) Well, drawing always brought me back again. It was... It was just a safe place for me.
Daniel: (picking up a few of her drawings) So these are like your memories?
Gina: No. (grabs for her drawings)
Daniel: Your dreams?
Gina: No, they're nothing.
Daniel: Why can't I look?
(Gina grabs her drawings out of Daniel's hand and rips them up.)
Daniel: No, you don't have to-!
Gina: It's private!
Daniel: Okay, I'm sorry! (gets off the bed) Just stop! Sorry.
Daniel: I'll j-I'll...
Gina: No! Daniel, you don't have to go.
Daniel: It's okay, I'm- It's fine. I'm sorry.
Daniel: I'm sorry.
(Daniel leaves and Gina looks disappointed. She quickly turns off the camera.)
- Daniel flirts with Gina by climbing on the bed next to her and asking her questions. This is resemblant of his earlier days with Bree.
- Gina laying on the bed with bare feet is reminiscent of School Work in Summer... BLECHH!!!.
- One of Gina's drawing is of three flowers in a vase, as seen on the right.
- Gina is wearing what appears to be black nail polish.
- When Daniel grabs the camera, as he's turning it around, you can see a member of the crew in the mirror over his shoulder.
