Nicole, who supposedly has been listening outside the room all this time, goes over to another door and calls out, "Hey Summer you're missing some comments out there." You're missing some comments? What, like Summer's supposed to hear every last thing that's said about her? Should she be setting up wire surveillance throughout the house? Summer sticks her head out the door, understandably confused: "Comments? Like good ones? What kinds of comments?" Why, they're cruel, heartless PUN ON SUMMER'S NAME comments. Natasha discusses leaving a note that says, "Summer turns to fall." Maya and Patricia gasp, "That's horrible!" No! Not the jokes about the seasons! Have they no mercy?
In an interview, Summer admits that Natasha, Maya, and Patricia seem a little exclusionary. Patricia says that "cliques happen" and it's "only natural"; she seems to see it all as a sort of social Darwinism thing where it's Survival Of The People Who Are, Like, The Most Comfortable With Each Other, You Know. Patricia goes on to talk about the private cocktail party she, Natasha, and Maya want to throw in the room they share together. "We were thinking about inviting all the guys in the house, having them all come up at a certain time, and in order to come to the party they have to wrap a towel around their waists and bring three compliments." What kind of fevered imagination thought that up? You can tell that spending this much time secluded in a house being given mandatory date instructions and forced to play bizarre games is starting to affect them. Natasha explains to Dan, "It's a fifteen-minute complimentary martini party we're going to give you guys drinks for free, and you have to give us compliments." See how the whole concept of spontaneous human interaction is getting fuzzy now? Tomorrow they'll be throwing a special jamboree where everyone who brings a coffee cup and says "good morning" will get free breakfast! Won't that be a kick? Woo hoo!
Natasha and Dan Barbato lie around on the beach, murmuring about what a "genius" idea the cocktail party is. The camera makes a point of the showing how their intertwined hands play with a rubber band. Their love, it stretches, it snaps, it binds them together! Their love is like a ponytail! Or something. Maya says in an interview that she knew immediately that the guys-only party would cause a conflict with the rest of the girls. Cut to montage: Nicole! Summer! Amy! Sarah! They're pissed! Or maybe not! But they look pissed! Natasha tells Dan that Maya's not sure about the party. "She feels like it's mean to the girls. Which it is, but you know, like, whatever." Patricia says it's a great idea and adds, "You realize we're going to have a lot of haters because of it." Hater montage! Sarah! Summer! Nicole! Hating! Or maybe just getting something out of the fridge. But with hate!
