Amanda tells J-R that what's going on with him is his problem to solve with Courtney. This is kind of rotten of Amanda, really, considering that Amanda has complained just as Courtney has about J-R being creepy, and if she's decided not to pursue it, that's fine, but acting like they just have a disagreement when she knows that Courtney actually feels uncomfortable with him (as I seem to recall Amanda did herself) is pretty...unfortunate. Todd, his head covered in a kerchief, announces that he likes the person Jean-Robert has showed that he "can be." In other words: "I dislike you, but occasionally, I have had a flicker of disliking you somewhat less." Is that supposed to be diplomacy? Because it sure smells like bullshit. Todd refers to the Courtney/J-R business as "a tiff," and says that it's up to them to resolve it or not. Of course, you'd think that since it has the potential to interfere with Todd's plan, he'd take more of an interest, but he doesn't, because...he's not a big thinker, so much as he is a very, very big talker. Courtney interviews that J-R treats her like shit, and that even the people who are trying to pretend to be her friends still "suck up to" him, so she knows they don't actually give a damn about her. She finger-quotes not only "friends" here, but also "Todd and Amanda," like, "IF THOSE ARE YOUR REAL NAMES." She says those two are just the ones she dislikes the least, and that they seem to mistake that for friendship. Heh. She pauses, taking a full beat or two before breaking out into a kind of creepy grin. I don't like her at all, really, but I don't really blame her for not being all that impressed by the entirely transparent efforts by Todd and Amanda to "befriend" her for the sole purpose of telling her what to do. The thing that's kind of sad about that, of course, is that Todd was right there when J-R was being all vile about Courtney being kept around to be fucked, basically, and Todd saw her cringe and vow not to sleep near J.R. again, and he looked right into the camera and vowed to get rid of those guys, saying he would "take out the trash." Remember? I think that's part of why this is happening: if Todd was saying that to us, he was undoubtedly saying it to her, and I think Courtney believed him that he was going to take up for her because of the personal shit being directed at her, and Todd totally flaked on that, and I think it hurt her feelings. I mean, she should have been more realistic, but she didn't make this up, this idea that there was originally a sense that they were her friends and that they were going to back her up.
