Aww. sometimes, when we get flashes and glimpses like this, I wonder why it took this pair so long to work it all out. Like why it even took so long for him to realise his feelings and everything. But life is like that, little things and then big things compile and serve to distract, divert and change life plans and goals.
Here it is interesting too to see a less confident and assured Hank, slipping almost into a morose mode (which he can be guilty of later in life) but Bethany serves as his buoy and keeps him afloat. She's his little constant, a bright beacon. And I felt this a very genuine moment in a young man's life, weighing up being social and getting out and plain wanting to bum out and relax and no better person to do it with that your bestie (and soul mate).

Poor Hank! Admittedly, he brought it onto himself with his daring, bold, boredom busting antics, but even so, I can imagine that even a social butterfly like him would have to get homesick, even if he wouldn't define it as such. And that Bethany would most certainly correlate with 'home'.
He was a bit homesick here. Heartsick too. Bethany served as a reminder of both. Later on, as the two's careers would take them to different places, being able to make these types of calls would be a rare, rare thing. But even in those lean years of friendship, the two managed to find a way to stay in touch. Not a lot, but enough. Thanks for the review. :)
