In an interview, Toni says that Anthony is looking for a partner, but she doesn't think that Laura reciprocates his feelings. Toni and Laura have a chat in Laura's cabin. Toni gets Laura to admit that she is attracted to Anthony, but that she doesn't know whether she would date him. Toni's a bit of an instigator, isn't she? I like that. Back up on deck, Greg tells Anthony his standards are so high that he'll never meet someone. Ralph adds that Anthony will be alone a lot. They should just come right out and say it: Anthony will never love another as much as he loves himself. Anthony says that he could learn a little bit about each of the women on the ship, or learn a lot about Laura. Back in the cabin, Laura says that she didn't think people would be looking for things like relationships and emotions. She thought it would be more random hooking up. Yeah! Me too! Man, I can't wait to see Anthony get rejected. I'm rubbing my hands together with glee over here.
After a clip of Andrea steering the boat for no reason, we learn from Anthony and Ralph that it's time for the singles to submit their Hot Seat questions in The Booth. I don't think I've ever typed a sentence with that much random capitalization before. Except maybe this next one: The Music of Wacky Booth Hijinks plays as we see a montage of various singles mugging for the camera. Andrea has a question for Laura: "I think that you're acting like you like Anthony just to win. Is this true, and why are you doing this?" Um, to win? Didn't she just answer her own question? Tomiko has heard that Tony hasn't had sex in a couple of years, and she wants to know what that's all about, since he's obviously interested in both sex and women. Interesting. Jeannette wants to know why Laura is letting Anthony hold her back. Looks like Laura will be spending some time in the Hot Seat.
In an interview, Toni states that Anthony is more into Laura than Laura is into Anthony. In their cabin, Laura tells Anthony that he shouldn't question their status so much. Anthony knows that Laura wants to win. Laura wonders whether Anthony thinks she's putting on a front. Anthony says that he's asking her whether she is. Laura, who is getting increasingly irritated with this line of questioning, says that she has repeatedly told Anthony that she's not. Laura advises Anthony to let it go and just enjoy things. Anthony tosses his hat at Laura and tells her to "project that someplace else." So, Laura really wants to enjoy things, and that's why she's telling Anthony to do it? That makes no sense. Laura claims that Anthony always has to leave a conversation. Anthony claims that Laura is passive-aggressive. I don't see it. Maybe a little, in that she doesn't want to be with Anthony, but doesn't want to tell him, so instead she's trying to goad him into hating her. Okay, I guess that is kind of passive-aggressive. Laura bemoans the fact that Anthony always brings up the psychoanalytic crap. Anthony lies that he doesn't want a girlfriend. Laura softly replies, "Good." Jesus, are they married? Let me remind you that they have known each other for three days. Three. Days. And suddenly, they're all Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. Oh, the drama.
