“The next day we all drove down to the beach house to do something I’d never thought I’d have to do. Help the Flynn’s get ready to sell it.”
The Kissing Booth 3 is set to be shot at Flynn’s beach house where the gang spends their last summer together before the beach house is sold. The summer bucket list along with the beach house are important aspects of Elle and Lee’s childhood. The gang gets ready to sell the house to prospective buyers during the course of their stay.
“Yeah, I’m just calling to let you know that I’ve—I’ve made a decision.”
One of the most important decisions Elle ever had to take. Berkeley or Harvard. Elle makes a call to the Berkeley admissions and declines their offer.
“They’ve been waiting their whole life for this”
It’s time for the super Mario go-kart race. Elle and Lee have been awaiting this moment their whole childhood where the entire cast of the Mario brothers compete in a race. Elle and Lee ask Noah to play Wario but when he declines the offer, Marco steps in and steals the show.
“Okay, well, you can paint everything else in this house, just not this doorway.”
The longer you hold onto things, the harder it is to let go. Some memories of the trio from their childhood at the beach house are shown in the duration of the movie. The doorway represents one such memory where Lee, Elle, and Noah had recorded their growth. It was a memory that Lee was not ready to let go yet.
“There’s, uh, two things in life that are worth spending a little extra on.”
Post Elle and Noah’s breakup, Elle is heartbroken. While she cleans up the beach house the garbage bag gives in and tears, spreading the trash everywhere. Imparting words of wisdom of Mrs. Flynn, Lee tells Elle that garbage bags and bacon are two things that are worth spending a little extra on.
“Other than Noah, why did you wanna go to Harvard?”
Were Noah and Lee the only reason why Elle applied to Harvard and Berkeley? Following a cat with Mrs. Flynn, Elle takes a step back to think about what she wants and what her actual goals are. Was she always going to be happy at Harvard? Or was it just Noah that was keeping her there?
“I hope you don’t mind how I addressed this, but it’s how I feel about you”
Through Noah, Marco, Lee, and the latest addition, Linda, the one constant in Elle’s life was Mrs. Flynn. She was a mother to not two, but three. Elle finally addresses her as ‘mom’ when she shares the portrait of the trio.
“I don’t know, you just- you seem so grown-up”
The conclusion shot of “The Kissing Booth 3” shows Noah and Elle standing across a kissing booth. It depicts a full circle. After six long years, the duo comes back together again to share a few moments on screen. Both are equally successful, happy, and in awe of the other.
