BJ and Tyler come to the airport and wind up next to Joseph and Monica at the Qantas counter. "MoJo," Tyler calls out, thinking he's cool. "What happened to those other taxis?" BJ is more specific, saying that "there's a rumor" that they canceled all the cabs. "That sucks," Joseph says noncommittally. Tyler asked if they did it, and according to the editing, Joseph just keeps facing the window -- probably wracked with guilt because he stood and watched Eric and Jeremy do it and isn't sure whether to rat them out -- but Monica shakes her head. So Tyler smugly says to BJ, "They did it." Next, Ray and Yolanda arrive at the airport, and when they get to the counter, Ray conspicuously directs some remarks in MoJo's direction about the canceling of the cabs. Then Joseph turns around, losing any claim to the high ground by saying, "Somebody canceled y'all's cab?" like he's surprised. BJ and Tyler say that's the scoop from Eric and Jeremy. "Sneaky bastards, they're telling them that we did it," Joseph mutters to Monica, a tiny bit amused. Obviously, my level of sympathy for them is somewhat limited by the fact that while Joseph didn't cancel the cabs, he was standing there and knew about it, and he was enjoying the "jump" he knew he'd get from it. Lie down with dogs, wake up with fleas.
And now, Eric and Jeremy are at the airport. When they get to the line, Monica confronts them. "You told everybody that Joseph was the one who canceled " Eric hops in with his most mischievous smile, insisting that he didn't say anything of the kind. Now, if BJ and Tyler were here and paying attention, they'd immediately see from this exchange that it was Eric and Jeremy, not MoJo, behind the cab-stealing. Eric's non-denial denial makes that perfectly obvious. BJ isn't done stirring shit, so he says to Eric, "You know, there's a rumor going around that you and Monica are getting kind of close." Right. Because to weaken men, you know what you do? You get them to fight over girls. This is where you learn that the progressive granola-eating is all completely faux, because this bullshit about "He's trying to steal your girl" is retro, sexist claptrap. It's Girl As Property, and it's not attractive. It's also something that is a pretty sensitive topic for a lot of people; the idea that they're not being respectful to the person they're with. I'm not sure I would actually try to cause problems in somebody's real-life relationship using things I knew were bullshit, just on the off-chance that it might distract them enough to gain me a competitive advantage. It just seems...low.
