Kaichou wa Maid-sama! s01e19
Titre original : Re-paired in the Footman Audition
In the second round of the footman auditions, Usui and Misaki succeed in the required task of setting up a high class table for afternoon tea. Usui also had to contend with Yukimura's curiosity by assuming a false identity and calling Misaki as a boy. But before the third round begins, Misaki falls down from the stage but Usui rescues her. Despite being injured from the fall, Usui tries to hide it which Misaki decides to do all of the tasks in the third round—a butler serving his master—to conceal it. This raises Maki's suspicions on Usui's condition, which the latter covers it up by playing the violin. However, seeing Usui secretly in pain is too much for Misaki to bear and she begs him to stop and defends her actions to Maki, their judge, over the importance of helping colleagues. Maki, moved by Misaki's speech, decides to call off buying Maid Latte and move his butler cafe elsewhere. As Maid Latte continues operating as usual, Misaki heads over to Usui's apartment to take care of him as he forced himself out of the hospital despite being still sick. There, she apologizes for becoming dependent on him but he confesses that he has also become dependent on her, just as she is to him, much to her embarrassment.
