In an interview, Melissa says, "So, the meal's done, if you want to call it a meal." Should she be criticizing when all she did was make the salad? Evan figures out how to use the corkscrew and opens a bottle of wine. Clearly, he does have some experience in that arena. They toast their meal. In an interview, Melissa says that they sat down at the nice dinner table and their meal looked like dog food. Oh, dear. It looks like Evan tried to make sort of a sirloin tip/mushroom combo served over egg noodles, but there's no sauce to speak of, so the noodles are going to be a bit dry, and the mushrooms are kind of burnt and shriveled. Melissa starts laughing at the food, which seems kind of mean. Maybe I'm still sensitive about the lasagna incident. And did they already eat the salad or what? In an interview, Melissa says she couldn't stop laughing. Melissa tells Evan that she thought the meal was a joke and that they would get a real dinner soon. Evan says that this is the real dinner. He tries to put some egg noodles on his plate but they're all clumped together. He chews and looks like he wants to spit it out. He tells Melissa that she'll be cleaning up, which seems fair. Melissa princesses, "Yeah, right! I don't clean." In an interview, Evan says Melissa is fun but he got the feeling that she's the type of woman who needs to be pampered. ["Because she can't cook you a steak? Shut up, Evan. I'm sure she was kidding about the cleaning, besides which, if I were living in a house with a butler, I might not really think I'd have to clean anything, either. I know Melissa kind of sucks, but as a fellow non-cook, I feel Evan's being a jerk." -- Wing Chun]
Evan gets philosophical as he asks Melissa, "If you were in my position, what would you want to do with the, you know, the funds that you were made, were made available to you?" Wow, I bet he wasn't fed that question by the producers, based on the incredibly awkward wording. Melissa launches into this speech about how she would go to a Third World country and "bathe their children and give shots and do things like that." "Bathe their children"? I thought she just said she doesn't clean. Also, of all the things you could do for poverty-stricken children, I think that bathing them is about at the bottom of the list. How about feeding them? Melissa concludes, "But that's me. I'm a mercenary kind of person." Bwah! "Mercenary." That's rich. So Evan wants to domesticate her, and she's a mercenary. The best part is that Evan doesn't even bat an eyelash, so he clearly didn't even notice that she meant "missionary." Also, what a bullshit answer. I'm so sure she would go to Cambodia and feed the poor. In an interview, Evan says he was confused by her answer, because he doesn't know if she really feels that way or if she's just telling him what she thinks he wants to hear. I'm confused by her answer for a bunch of different reasons. Melissa says she was thinking about it in the hotel, and she wondered if it would get boring to be waited on all the time. I'll answer that: No. It would never get boring. Melissa asks Evan if it would get boring to him, and he just takes another bite of the clumpy noodle/dog food meal. Evan points out that she didn't eat much. Melissa asks if he had fun cooking, and he says he did. Melissa asks if he's mad that she can't cook, and he says he doesn't care, because that's why they made restaurants. Or, you know, frozen dinners.
