Next is the flight simulator, which is basically a chair in front of a bank of fake controls with a map pinned onto it. Yo, I had a better flight simulator on my GameBoy seven years ago than this accredited jet-fighter school has. Msaada is first, and she has to shake out she's so nervous. She floats that she's nervous because she's so close to fulfilling one of her "dreams in life." Holly is next, and James and Laterrian stand quietly behind her in the little room waiting for their turns. There is a glimmer in Holly's eye. Is it...can it be...the Holly we used to know and hate, circa the Winter Games mission? "I just want you guys to leave," she snaps. Yes! Welcome back Holly! Goodbye, sweet li'l Holly-ho-ho. Well, not the ho part, but the sweet part. The boys innocently wonder why, and Holly continues telling them to leave. As they sheepishly walk out, she smiles that annoying, bitchy smile we haven't seen in forever and says, "Nothing personal, I just don't like a bunch of people watching me." (Oh, bullshit. Holly loves having people watch her.) She continues to talk about being made to go first and then having people watch her and, "well screw that," long after the boys have left. Speaking to the ether. Holly then tells the camera proudly that she's "retained everything perfectly" from the classes, but that she's never played video games in her life so she thinks she's going to lose based on the simulator. Excuses. Bitching. Complaining. Passive-aggressive, self-aggrandizing behavior. Insensitivity. Rudeness. Yup, Holly's back, alright. James is next on...in...sitting next to...the "simulator." He does well, says PudgyInstructor. James tells the camera that he did well, and that he does want to fly the jet, but mostly he doesn't want to lose to Holly, Laterrian, or Msaada. Ha. He knows Kathryn and Theo aren't going to make it? That's cold, yo. So the kids sit around in their jumpsuits and wait for the scores. Theo yodels that "three of [them] are about to fly and three of [them] are about to take a nap." Hick-boy then talks to the camera, sitting inside what looks to be a garbage can, about how they are waiting for the scores etc. etc. Kathryn then says that she hopes no one will have animosity. She says this because, during the simulator, she blew PudgyInstructor in order to guarantee herself a spot. (Yes, I'm kidding. Not ruling it out, but kidding.) Regarding Kathryn's talk of "animosity," Holly says, "I will...I'm warning you right now, this is the one mission that I, like, really, really care about. The one mission." She goes on to say that she'll just be mad in general, not at anyone, but Msaada is already just cracking up. I Mlove Msaada. James then floats, over a double-shot of Holly giving her water bottle a handjob, that Holly is always very open about how she feels, and that she will tell "you" right "in your face" if she's unhappy or mad. James goes on to suggest that Holly should instead do what he does: drink your feelings away or bottle up the anger until it erupts in violence towards wall-furnishings or blathering red-faced tirades against women.
