Scotty/Jackie/Sonyae: "Say It Back." Scotty tells Jackie to do the same thing with the voice, by singing all country, and she does a good job with that. It's more nasal than her usual beautiful voice, but it's all there. It's the best song, lovely harmonies, and if there's one thing I know about this show it's that the fact I like the song means they're going to fail. Jackie is going home. Somehow, they are going to get her.
Nick: "[Bitching. Bitching anyway, bitching all day long, bitching and making that face. That dreadful, nasty, childish little bitchy bitch face.]"
Scotty: "I wonder who won first place? Just kidding, it was us."
Nick: "I don't know! Could be anybody. Except Jackie, because I hate her irrationally..."
Everybody: "What a strangely valid, not-horrific thing to say."
Nick: "...Because the judges are stupid and this show is stupid and farts and hatred."
Everybody: "There it is."
Brian: "You're in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down and you see a tortoise. It's crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping. Why is that?"
Nick: "Because turtles suck. They are not punk rock. They're just turtles. Fuck that turtle. I hate that turtle more than I hate Jackie. Unless Jackie hates the turtle, and then it is my friend. Unshakeable ideology is the privilege of the young and the damaged. It's okay to only have one dimension if that dimension is 100% ass horrible."
Jewel: "Everybody but Jes and Nick, come to the stage."
Jes: "Goddammit. Or not, depending on whatever Jewel decides are the rules this week."
Johnny: "I love writing with Brian. I love having an apartment to myself where he can't come, though, too."
Brian: "Johnny and I have so much in common, such as we both want to get married immediately to the next girl we date. Or rollercoaster."
Jes: "That's so silly! (I hope he means it.)"
Johnny: "Yes, we are really zeroing in on masculinity. As a team. I think getting married at whatever baby age I am is a totally valid way to prove my point, whatever it is."
