"Fine," Maile says, walking away. I only know she's walking away because I'm following Nicole's eye line. Nicole says without a hint of emotion, "And I'm just joking. If you're kidding then I'm kidding too." Maile says something that gets bleeped out and Nicole goes, "Fine. Well, then fine. I apologize." She stands up. "Because everyone can say what they want to me, but if I say something back?" Maile tells Nicole that saying "--ck you" is a big bold statement. Nicole says she apologizes again, and that it just came out. Then she gets all pissy and says, "And if I want to say '--ck you,' then I'm going to say '--ck you,' alright?" Maile retreats with a million "Fine!"s and everyone tries to calm Nicole down before they get beat up again. Someone's saying that it's over. Nicole wraps her Pashmina around all diva-style and swoops out of the room with Rosanna's perfect Three's Company entrance at the same time through a different door to deliver the classic, "What happened?" Maile is running around telling the girls that she's never said "--ck you" to any of them.
In her own personal moment, Nicole is wearing her blue Hawaiian flower and her puka shells, reminding us of her constant femininity and serenity. Oh, God. They even start up the Tesh music for this shit. "All my life I feel like sometimes I'm overlooked, or I'm easy to pick on sometimes. Not that the girls pick on me, but I'm just a very sensitive person? So, um, sometimes people say things that hit me the wrong way, and I don't know how to take them, and they, and it, they find that it's okay and then it bothers me so they just keep going. And sometimes I get to a point where it just piles up and I'm just like, 'Look. You may not realize this, but you know when you say things like that I have feelings and it hurts.'"
I love this. The calm, collected, laid-back Maile is using a totally friendly tone to go, "And I just said, 'Okay, Nicole, why don't you choose a photo that you think you look pretty in, and we'll work around you. We'll, we'll see if see if there's something that, you know ' And I think it came out wrong. I think it was kinda like, 'Well, you pick a photo and we'll well, you know, wuh, wuh, well you like, wuh, you choose what you like and we'll work around you!' I think that's how it came out. I think she was a little offended by that." Nice. Does Maile not know that her conversation was recorded on film? It's just like Sandy saying to Danny, "I still think you and Cha-Cha went together," and Danny goes, "We did not GO together, Sandy, we just went together," and she says it's the same thing and he somehow doesn't see that it is even though he just said just what she just said.
