In the Big Bed Room, Danielle raises the unthinkable with Marcellas: what if they booted Roddy instead of Josh? Marcellas reacts with horror, because he doesn't think tactically like Danielle does. He thinks emotionally, and he still hates Josh so much he can't really bring himself to be strategic. ["If I were in the house, I would be Marcellas." -- Wing Chun] Danielle asks him to consider it. She diary-rooms that it would take three votes to oust Roddy. Later, Marcellas tells her he might consider it if they could find the third vote for sure. They agree that they'll rarely have a better shot at Roddy, so it's awfully tempting to go for it. But Marcellas is only willing to go along if they know for sure that it's a done deal. They aren't confident they can convince Lisa, though, and Danielle reports that Jason told her he couldn't do it -- probably because everyone is already suspicious of him because of the Eric/Lisa vote, and if he wants to continue to have a toe in the opposing camp (which benefits Danielle as well as himself), he can't give them additional reasons to worry. Or else because he likes Roddy. They move on to Gerry, who enters at a particularly convenient moment. He's distracted by worries about the returning evictee, because if it's Eric, he's convinced he's out the door. Gerry wants to think about the whole idea of booting Roddy, but he's willing to consider it (in spite of his dead mother's soul and that sort of thing). Gerry says that breaking his word would be wicked yet oddly appropriate: "It's cold-hearted, it's strategic, it's nasty -- it's Big Brother 3." Good point. More lying! More fighting! It's the only chance we have against boredom!
Roddy and Josh talk in the Aquarium Room. Roddy repeats to Josh that he's not enjoying this week they're going to be spending together on the block any more than Josh is. Josh declares that if he gets the veto, he is indeed going to use it on Roddy. Josh is very depressed, and as he begins Stage Four Of Josh's Descent Into Madness, Roddy comes over and gives him a very manly hug.
The next day, it's time for the veto competition. As usual, the veto competition is boring. It is almost as boring as the veto itself, considering that no one ever uses it. This week's competition involves placing groups of five still shots of events that happened in the house in chronological order. Snore. Lisa wins. In the most entertaining moment of the competition, Chiara gets a big fat zero in the first round. She is...really something.
