Gerry, Marcellas, and Josh chat in the HoH room. Josh assures Gerry that he "handled [him]self very well." Is this the same Josh who called Gerry a "Nazi," not to mention calling him and Marcellas "spineless bitches"? Goodness.
Outside, Lisa tells Kiki and Danielle that she has a sense that she won't go yet. In the bathroom, Roddy assures Eric that he's certainly not going anywhere. "There's not even a question," Roddy soothes. Chiara comes into Gerry's room to drop off some laundry and oozes righteous indignation all over him, so he calls her back in to tell her calmly that he went strictly on strategy, and he hopes she understands. She winds up giggling. I actually think he handled Chiara quite well, which I suppose is the result of his vast experience with seventh-graders.
In one of those side conversations I find more interesting than many that are more plotline-significant, Roddy and Danielle chat about Gerry in the hammock. They agree that he isn't nearly the villain he's being made out to be, although Danielle remains horrified by his hygiene. Today, the discussion concerns his nasty feet. Roddy isn't sure there's anything you can do if you have nasty feet, but Danielle thinks he could at least have the decency to soak them. Heh.
Josh comes into the HoH room again to talk to Gerry, and I am instantly sent into a fetal position, because Josh's pants are about four inches too low, resting right on his hipbones. The horrifying consequences of this are twofold. First of all, he has a tan line way above the waistband, so there's an expanse of skin that stamps a general impression of nudity on my subconscious that will take months of scrubbing to remove. Second, when they shoot him from the back, you can see...yeah, just a little bit of the top of his...oh, I may never be hungry again.
Outside in the hammock, Lisa, Queen of Morality, tells Danielle and Roddy how awful she thinks it is that a bad person like Josh has been spared, while she and Eric, who have been dry-humping for the benefit of needy children across the globe, have been mercilessly nominated for eviction. She says that the game "should come down to the good-hearted people." Which, of course, is why she let Josh lead her around by the nose for the first week and nominated the deeply evil Marcellas and Lori when she was HoH. They both encourage her to share these feelings with Gerry, in case the veto is used and he has a chance to nominate someone new. Emboldened by her self-righteousness and driven by the desire to hang on to the frequent helpings of first-hand soft-core pornography she's been receiving, Lisa visits Gerry in the HoH room. She asks him why she was nominated instead of Josh, who after all spent a couple of weeks treating Gerry even worse than the rest of them were treating him. Gerry patiently explains that as much as he would like to use the nomination process to exorcise his personal grievances, he chose to use it strategically instead. Lisa says that her heart is weeping because "the bad people don't deserve to be here." Gerry nods indulgently and ignores her. She diary-rooms with a smug smirk, "I tried to pull off the feminine innocent-ness." "Innocent-ness"? Do I have to start adding entries to the Lisa-English/English-Lisa Dictionary now? It's good, however, to know she's full of it, because as sad as this speech she's giving is as a strategic move, I think it would be even sadder if she really believed it.
