Nicole calls Tim and invites him for a hot tub. "I'm such a loser," Nicole says when she hangs up. That's the first thing she's said in weeks that I haven't disagreed with. She camera-losers that she can't ignore boys though everyone tells her she should, especially with Tim. Now they hot-tub. "I'm hot," says Nicole. She's hot in a hot tub? Call the doctor! Tim says, "I've been telling you that for weeks." Okay. He is kind of playing her. They wrestle a little. The editing staff goes nuts. Then Tim yells up at the house for Brooke. Brooke isn't here, says Nicole. Nicole then drops a bomb on us: that there is a "Tim Likes Brooke" joke going on. What? She explains that it started when Tim and Alex called the house for Brooke. What? Why? And now Nicole makes sad passive-aggressive references to "Why don't you call Brooke?" all the time. We see Tim and Nicole hanging out, and Tim says something about Nicole wanting to see Brooke and Tim go at it, and Nicole I think mishears and thinks he's talking about watching Brooke and Nicole go at it (or she just hopes he is). It's all very confusing. She says, "Yeah. Am I right?" Which makes no sense after his saying, "What? You want to watch Brooke and me go at it?" Confusing. All of them.
Equally confused is Brooke, who says she doesn't know what this whole Tim-likes-Brooke thing is. "Like, I'm not in on the joke, so it's not at all funny to me," says Brooke, with incredible even-headedness.
