Dinner arrives, and I bet these dancers pretended to eat more carbs in the weeks the show was filming than they've even looked at in the grocery store over the last two years. And just then Katie says people would be shocked to know how much the dancers eat. Allison goes through how many times she eats during the day (seven) and Katie says she doesn't think there are any anorexics at Ballet West. Christiana says she eats potato chips and a croissant sandwich before every show. Beckanne says the other dancers are ignoring her, and asks if anyone else is freezing. They ignore her. It's not personal; they're just afraid that her split ends are contagious.
At the theater, Katie C. and Allison watch two of the boy dancers eat sandwiches (not in the How I Met Your Mother sense, although that would be great). One of them is Tom, who is 24 and who Allison says is the only gay person at Ballet West. Really? Adam is straight? The girls want to go out with Tom and find him a man. He says they're welcome to try. In his talking head, Tom has a beard and he looks gorgeous with it. I hope the ballet- and beardy-loving gays of Salt Lake City are watching tonight.
Rehearsal for "Paquita." I desperately want Elena to yell at them about Nureyev or Lenin or how Natalia Makarova slept on the barre, but she seems awfully nice. Whenever she interrupts the dancers she does it by saying, "Sorry, sorry, sorry." Allison says she doesn't know the part well and is afraid of Elena stopping her. Which she does. Beckanne is smugging in the background, and she says compared to other ballets they've done "Paquita" is really easy. Allison does not appear to find it easy. In a break, she asks other dancers Liz and Sayaka if they ever want to murder their childhood ballet teachers. I'm not sure if she means now, as revenge, or if she means she should have killed them then to prevent her from a life of ballet. Liz and Sayaka are also confused, and look like they're considering asking Adam to call the folks in the white jackets with the butterfly nets. Allison says she was a tomboy as a kid. And then Beckanne does more things perfectly and Allison plots how to dispose of her body.
Rex comes over to see Allison at home, and they make dinner. Allison says Rex is the person she wants to talk to no matter what mood she's in, but a minute later she says she can't get in a committed relationship with him. He is unable to look at her without those giant puppy eyes, and as there's already an actual dog in the room, it's difficult to tell which of them is more eager to crawl into Allison's lap and plaintively lick her hand.
