Jennifer gives them each ten seconds to plead their cases. David says it's been amazing and no one can take it away from them no matter what happens. They kiss. Chris goes all intense and whispery and then blows it, saying that he spent time with her, and if she hasn't figured what it is about him by now, he thinks they should spend some more time together. David and Jennifer laugh. I think Chris is still thrown by his own terrible acting back there. So now Jennifer says she didn't think she'd connect with two such different guys on this level, but that she's going to let go of Chris. He looks really upset and suddenly isn't so confident anymore. He hugs David, and then Jennifer unchains him. Quick! Before he cries! She gives Chris twenty-four hundred dollars. He smiles, and oddly, suddenly he's like a normal person, having dropped the schtick. All schtick, that boy. Sad. And a terrible actor to boot. He's not going to make it after all. He leaves. Jennifer and David kiss.
Short bus. Chris says he's bummed and hurt. Jennifer says she doesn't think she could have made this decision yesterday. Chris now goes stupid again, blaming getting cut on the fact that Jennifer can't open up. I don't get it. I used that tactic when I was in high school and it was kinda tired even back then. ["God, no kidding. As Regina once observed, 'Why can't you open up?' usually means 'Why can't you blow me and iron my shirts?' Shut up, Chris. Your shit is played." -- Sars] Jennifer says it hurt her to release Chris. Chris thinks Jennifer went the easy route by picking David. Jennifer says that she and Chris are both nuts and thus wouldn't make a good pair. Ah ha! I understand. She needs a sedate person so she can be the center of attention. Well, that makes sense and yes, it probably is the easy way out. Chris might be right about something. Who knew? Chris says that David outplayed him, but he doesn't think it's "the last chapter between Chris and Jennifer."
