Ryan continues to spin his Oliver-Stone-esque cracked conspiracy theories about Sabotage From The Letter People in a sewing circle with Lanny and Chad. Lanny tries to discount it, responding that he thinks Meredith will "take it into consideration," which is what they're there for, but that she is, ultimately able to make up her own, adult mind. Having some private time now, Ryan tells Meredith that there are few people he feels he has a connection with, y'know, "intuitively." Man. That's, like, five times he's said that word. My friend Tracie is on this Word of the Day email list that, well, sends her a word a day with its definition, and Tracie and I have a daily exercise where we each write a sentence about this one girl we both hate incorporating that word. Ryan's word in his inbox when he woke up this morning was most assuredly "intuitive." The sentence I would write would be something about the girl I hate not being intuitive. Ryan's would be about being intuitive and forgetting what it actually means. You can't alter the definition of a word just by saying it over and over and over again, Ryan. If you could, "money" and "fame" would be loosely defined as "things I have." But they're not. And you can't. So shut up. "There would never be a dull day with you," Meredith says, terrified.
"Giving me a rose this evening would be a bit of risk-taking for Meredith," Sean tells us. He sits down with her and reminds her that they haven't spent that much time together, and that she has to go with her gut. Matthew, meanwhile, tells Meredith how much he missed her, but worries that he'll never know where he stands until the rose is in his hand. Oh, hi Chris.
Up in the Gloom Room, Chris asks Meredith where her head is, and she responds that she feels she has a connection with each of the guys. She's excited about ending up with "a potential life partner," but again, she doesn't know who. Chris reminds her that tonight is a very serious point, and she tells us how not easy it is to send three guys home. Chris hands her the letters that each of the guys wrote to Meredith a really, really, really long time ago, which she muses over before heading over to the video messages. Chad is excited about their "awesome" time together but would like a rose! Brad wants a rose because he wants Meredith to meet his family! Ian wants a rose because he wants Meredith to meet his family! Ryan wants a rose because he wants Meredith to meet his family, intuitively! Lanny wants a rose because he wants Meredith to meet his family! Sean wants a rose because he wants Meredith to meet his family! Matthew wants a rose because he wants Meredith to meet his family! Man. I can't take it anymore.
