In the Big Blue Chair of Multiple Alliances, Kent explains that Bunky named the non-Chill Town alliance TOP, which stands for "The Other People." I take it that Bunky's career as a technical writer doesn't involve a whole lot of creative copywriting? Kent says that the members of TOP are Kent, Bunky, Monica, Hardy, and Nicole. What about the UT? This is complicated. I know Kent doesn't know about the UT, but is the UT an alliance within an alliance? And does Krista know about TOP? Can she be UT if she's not in TOP? Does the UT no longer exist? I am so confused. Anyway, Bunky asks Hardy whether he's not just a little upset that Krista didn't kick off the exodus of Chill Town last week. Hardy sighs that Krista's goal was personal: to get Autumn out of the house. Bunky thinks that's a little selfish of her: she's making sure she's safe, to the detriment of the rest of them. Hardy looks thoughtful.
Hardy heads into the bedroom to talk to Kent. He tells Kent that he needs Kent to keep his mouth shut about Krista, because he doesn't want dissension in the group until Chill Town is taken care of. Kent calmly tells Hardy that Krista told Kent that she's not in any alliance. Hardy is all, excuse me? Kent repeats himself. Krista told him she's not a part of any group. She's not in TOP.
Outside, Hardy scampers over to Bunky and quietly says that he doesn't want Bunky to think he's declaring "war on Krista," because he's not. But, he says, "it's not only who you nominate, it's who you hang with." At this point, I'd like to thank the subtitles people over at CBS, because all the apostrophes are correct! Whee! Grammar! Oh, right, Hardy: "When somebody says they don't have a problem with how those fucking animals act, and says, 'Oh, they still haven't done anything to me, that's okay,' then [that person is] guilty by association in my book." Bunky nods. Inside the house, Krista hangs with Chill Town.
The next day (I think), Nicole makes a nice dinner for the entire house. Everyone gathers in the kitchen, except Hardy, who's finishing up his workout in the yard. Someone asks Bunky to say grace, which he does -- tearfully, of course. And Shannon starts snickering! During the prayer! Has she no shame? Will's sort of grinning, and Mike's clearly biting his tongue. Shannon is full-on laughing. Krista looks fairly amused, herself. Bunky finishes up and look at them balefully. "You all was laughing," Monica angrily snaps. "You were snickering." She's pissed. Will says that Mike was the one doing the laughing. Mike cheerfully says that he thought Bunky was kidding, with the tears! "I don't kid when I pray," Bunky solemnly says. Mike laughingly apologizes. Monica looks ready to tear someone a new one, and Will steps in and thanks Nicole for making dinner. Wow, I hate Will the least of Chill Town right now. Who would have thunk it? So, Will starts dishing out the salad. Someone reminds him not to forget to serve Hardy. Shannon snips that she doesn't know if Hardy ever showed the same consideration for someone in the group, if such a someone wasn't at the table. Kent speaks for the universe and asks her to drop it so that they can have a nice dinner for once. Shannon chirps that she doesn't see him "giving it a break," and accuses him of being loud and obnoxious while other people are trying to sleep. Everyone else, seriously, is like, dude, shut up.
