And then she transitions into talking about Tim, and suddenly we're in the house and Brooke is there too and Maggie brings up the kiss factor. Brooke says that Tim looks cool and you, Nicole, are just running after him and he likes that. Nicole tells us she's tired of this. Brooke gives good advice, saying Nicole needs to go to Tim and ask what the fuck is his deal and if he doesn't respond well, then say "don't talk to me." Brooke thinks someone needs to confront Tim. Maggie agrees. Now Nicole calls Tim on the phone, telling us she's going to talk to Tim about all her concerns. Yeah, right.
Day. It's raining. Applebee's! Seriously, what the fuck? That's Karissa's Theme Restaurant Of Confrontation. She's gonna be pissed when she finds out. Nicole is dressed like she's fifty. She brings up why haven't they kissed, in a real roundabout way. She starts backtracking immediately and Tim says, "I don't want to see you get hurt." Jesus. They talk about Kristi, and she claims she wasn't hurt by that. Nicole then asks are they just friends or more than friends and Tim gives the perfect dick answer: "I don't like getting caught up in all that mumbo-jumbo." Ha. Nicole should throw down her Snausages right now and get the fuck out of Applebee's. Seriously. But she doesn't. Tim goes on and Jamie-Kennedys that two people don't need definition and if he kissed her it would take it to a whole different level and he needs to do things in his own time and it's just the way he grew up (the fuck?!). It's as if he's just reading randomly from a book of Excuses To Give Clingy No-Self-Respect Girls When They're Trying To Pin You Down But You Like Having Them Around For When You're Bored. And Nicole's buying it all. Nicole tell us that Tim is playing the knight in shining armor and he's looking out for her. No no no. Wrong. She says she's really frustrated. So are we all. And commercials I mean, aside from the big one we just sat through for Applebee's.
Back. Buffalo. Night. Pledge house. Nicole tells Maggie and Brooke (who is on the internet right now, surfing the "Girls Looking For Girls" section of Friendster) what Tim said about having too much on his plate for a girlfriend right now (yeah, too much pussy). Maggie isn't buying it. Brooke suggests that Nicole tell him that until he can make her life easier instead of harder, he shouldn't talk to her. "Ummm," says Nicole. Brooke camera-talks that guys always have the upper hand. Brooke tells her if she really likes him, just wait. Nicole then latches onto that part of Brooke's advice, saying she likes that part of it a lot and she should let Tim come to her. She lies to the girls that she's going to take a step back and stop approaching him. Brooke goes into overkill, though, lying that Tim has something great in Nicole and if he doesn't see that, then 100 billion other guys will. That's a lot of guys! She could let herself be played by all of them. Just think.
