The tragedy is that the most entertaining thing about this sequence, when I first saw it, was a shot where it appeared that Lisa's boob was hanging out of her bikini. My amusement was shattered when someone on the forums asserted that it was an illusion resulting from the location of her mic wire. I was initially sure it wasn't, but looking at it again, I'm afraid it is. Mostly because there isn't enough of Lisa for that to be her boob. Also because where the hell else would her mic wire be, the way she's dressed? That's about where it's got to be. But I'm heartbroken that she's not actually oozing out of her clothes, because once naked body parts start accidentally making it into prime time? That's when it's on.
Wednesday. Wocka-wocka music plays as the Black-and-White Dramatic-Tension-Cam shows Gerry winning the extremely boring veto-privilege Chuck E. Challenge. There is much talk to the effect that Gerry is big power-guy right now. Lori has a chat with Josh, who points out that if Gerry messes with the nominations, that could screw Lori. Lori nods as if Josh has just said something terribly intelligent. Oh, honestly, what are the odds?
If Josh doesn't stop wearing that bandanna on his head, I'm going to hire a plane to drop me into the back yard with a dart gun. You can take it from there.
Lisa says in the diary room that she's very confident Gerry won't use the veto. And if she had any doubts, she certainly doesn't have any once she receives the wisdom of Tonya, who agrees with her. In the diary room, Roddy also predicts that Gerry won't use the veto. In a conversation with a do-ragged Tonya and Josh in the pool, Eric says the very same thing, only even more confidently. Well, that's it. Any time Tonya and Eric agree, I'm convinced. There can be no holding back the raw power of that kind of intellectual tornado.
Gerry goes to talk to Marcellas in the Big Bed Room, which he tells us he did because he knew it would annoy Josh. Teeny props to Gerry for that. He also reveals that he has begun to realize that if the Goober alliance is about what he calls "the beautiful people," then he doesn't want to be part of it. And that's fine, I suppose, except that frankly I'd rather see him say he doesn't want to be part of it because most of the people in it are such complete idiots. The fact that they look lovely without shirts is not the reason they're objectionable, not that I would expect Gerry to draw this distinction. Gerry rants to Marcellas about how much he doesn't like the alliance anymore, and how much he wants them to all go nuts and "kiss [his] ass."
