In the studio, Julie enthusiastically tells Monica to "forget the handshake," and hugs her. Julie's shoes, again, are hot.
Back in the house, Will wonders whether Nicole really knew the answer to the car question, or whether she was guessing something she thought was incorrect. She doesn't really want to talk about the competition, she snaps. Will looks at her levelly and tells her that she handled the eviction "phenomenally well." He's such a liar. "[Monica] just totally shredded me," Nicole points out. Will reminds her that Monica has reason to be upset, under the circumstances.
Interview time! Monica is so sassy in this episode. I love it. Maybe I'm just feeling nostalgic, because I know the show is almost over, and I'll never forget how much pleasure her "my shit. Is good."/ "It's on!" repertoire gave us all. Monica tells Julie that she knew she'd never make it past the final three because, as Julie translates, she's "a threat." "That whole song and dance [Nicole] gave about her honeymoon and her husband -- that's crap," says Monica. Julie basically cracks up at this. "Whatever she needs to make herself feel better," Monica continues, as Julie laughs. Julie then asks what, exactly, Monica thinks Nicole "needs to work on." Monica nods maniacally, and dives into a whole laundry list of psychological problems, including "[Nicole's] controlling [sic], her self-esteem, and how she feels about people and life." That's a lot. Julie asks whether "it's on" now. Monica asserts that it is, in fact, on. "What does that mean?" Julie asks. You just know the people around the Big Brother production offices are telling each other that it's on, like, all the time. Like, "Someone jammed the copier and didn't fix it? That's it, it's on!" or "I swear to God, if Shirley reschedules this meeting one more time, it is going to be on!" Monica tells Julie that Nicole will not get her vote. Because it is, as she said, on. Julie introduces the videos Will and Nicole made for Monica, and Monica's reaction is genius. While Will wishes Monica the best and tells her how much he likes her, Monica ["and North America" -- Wing Chun] bounces up and down in her chair with glee and makes kissy faces at him. When Nicole performs her Fake-ola Tears of Regret, Monica ["and North America" -- Wing Chun] rolls her eyes dismissively and disgustedly. When the videos conclude, Monica explains that she and Will made peace with each other. "I knew there was another side to him," she says. And Nicole? Julie wonders. "That weepy stuff? That's for her, not for me," Monica says. She tells Julie that she "knew" all these people before she got there, so she knew how to deal with him. I think she means that she recognized their personality types. Or something. Anyhoo, Julie winds it all up by explaining that Monica's family isn't there, at Monica's request, but that she'll be reunited with them shortly. "Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family," Julie finishes. Monica nods.
