Roddy confronts Josh outside about Josh's having broken their pledge not to campaign against each other. I would point out, of course, that this was an easy pledge for Roddy to make, given that it appeared that booting Josh was a foregone conclusion, and there were plenty of people to advocate that position if it became necessary, whereas the only person who was ever going to make a case on Josh's behalf was...well, Josh. Josh denies having campaigned, trying to draw some kind of bizarre distinction between real campaigning and whatever it is he's doing. Roddy scoffs at some sort of line between "first-degree campaigning" and "third-degree campaigning." Josh claims that he only said anything about the votes when he was asked by other people, so Roddy asks the other houseguests who are watching this debacle whether they have, at any time, gone up to Josh to ask about votes. Josh asks Gerry to back him up, but Gerry points out that the original discussion started not with him, but with Josh.
In a particularly regrettable development, Marcellas jumps into this argument, lecturing Josh that although Josh believes that some conspiracy between Chiara and Roddy is responsible for his nomination, it is in fact his own behavior that is responsible for his nomination. Of course, you'll recall that Marcellas has never been willing to admit that his own behavior could have played any role at all in his own nomination. Well, nominations. "There are eleven people in this house who probably never want to see you again," Marcellas tells him. Way to speak for everyone else, dude. If Marcellas is looking for sympathy for the times Josh has spoken cruelly to him, he just lost it right there, because there was really no reason for that remark. Marcellas is doing nothing except basking in the fact that now he's up, so he has the power to put Josh down. Common, but wrong.
In the diary room, a chuckling Josh allows that he was "caught stealing," but he doesn't think he had much of a choice. In Stage Eight of Josh's Descent Into Madness, he looks into the camera and maniacally insists that he will "fight on" and "beat this thing." Yeesh. Get the hook.
Time for Julie to check in with the houseguests. Jason is wearing another shirt with a little teeny pattern on it. Wow, yuck. Jason is definitely in the running for World's Worst Dressed Hottie. Julie asks whether Roddy and Josh have made up, and Roddy blandly insists that the fight is all over. Which is what they always claim. Josh insists that Roddy went "a little New Jersey," to which Julie counters, "And you didn't get Queens on him?" Oh, don't take me there, Julie. She asks how they're feeling about the evicted houseguest returning, and goes to Marcellas for a quote. "Why, when my best friend was wrenched from my arms on national television, why would I have any vested interest in who comes back?" he dramatically asks. "If Amy's not standing right next to you, Julie, I have a problem," he bitches. Hee. Julie asks Chiara how hard the week as HoH was, and I think they've taken my advice and done away with the HoH interview! Yay! Well, okay, they might have considered it because of tight timing in this episode, but I'm sure my advice was the turning point. Josh stands up for his parting words and surprisingly says nothing objectionable. He loves everyone, he had a great time, and he has no hard feelings. Eh? Roddy puts a whoopee cushion on his seat, which he obligingly activates when he sits back down. Where in the hell did these people get a whoopee cushion? They don't even have watches, for God's sake. Roddy says that the whole thing is a bit complicated by the fact that he and Chiara are "a bit of an item," and then he quotes the old saying, "All's fair in 'I like you a lot, but we're on network television and my mom's watching' and war." Oh, please. He "loves" Kiki about as much as he "loves" the glider and the free weights. He offers some more warm words.
