This next part doesn't make much sense, either. The boys are all standing on the stage with towels around their necks, and it's supposed to be some sort of interview. A young girl that we never see sing-songs her question, reading that she was wondering whether the guys are closer now because they're in a band together. We still hear girls scream and cheer, even though we don't see anyone cheering or screaming. Erik says that they're like brothers. We hear some girl scream, "We love you, Erik!" and hear girls scream like it's any boy band other than O-Town on stage, but we never actually see these hysterical females. Erik tells us in a voice-over that he's always been an only child before, but that now he has four brothers. They taught him the importance of family and brothers. Another gem of speech victory: "Without each other we wouldn't get through things that we get through." What a wordsmith.
We see Fabian and Florinda, Erik's younger brother and sister, as we hear Erik say that he's nervous. Florinda tells us that she's nervous as well. Erik looks like his father. I just found out that you spell it Ruben, not Reuben, as I've been doing for the past four episodes. ["That's okay -- I searched and replaced." -- Wing Chun] Sorry, Ruben. Perhaps you could have shown up earlier in your son's life, you know, before his fame, and I wouldn't have made the mistake. Ruben touches Fabian's shoulder. He wipes a tear. He wears a cream-colored sweater with an American flag across the front. Erik's still philosophotizing in a voice-over: "The person that helped give you life. Meeting him for the first time." He tells us that he feels really weird: "I've never felt anything like this before. I have to just go for it. You know? I have to just dive in and whatever happens, happens. We have to meet up face-to-face. You know, like, eyes need to catch each other. 'Cause that's when you know someone's for real." No lie, Erik's wearing exactly the same sweater as Ruben. He's walking over to where Ruben's waiting.
