Money for nothing, and your wedding for free
Aaaanyway. Rob shows up at the shower, and when he gives her the flowers, it seems like part of the reason it's a nice gesture is that he's kind of shown her up, in part, and embarrassed her in front of her friends by not showing when he said he would. So a nice paws-up move like that gives her a little of her pride back, as revolting as that sort of is. Plus, it's flowers, and that can't be bad. Amber introduces Rob to the crowd, a little sheepishly even, and everyone applauds, because anyone who hasn't met him has certainly seen him on television. She explains in an interview that she knew just what he was up to with giving her flowers to make up for being late. Heh. "The charm worked," she admits. At least she's self-aware about it. It's the ones where you don't know you're doing it. That's how you get yourself in trouble.
Rob and Amber take off for Boston now, a trip Rob predicts will not "go as easy." They make their way to some house or another in Boston, where Amber asks Rob whether he feels like going dancing, and he tells her he doesn't. It turns out it's not a real question, because she thinks they should take some lessons. "We're not taking dancing lessons," he mutters. "Why not?" she asks with a smile, and he chuckles, "There's going to be a fight if we're taking dancing lessons." Girls like dancing and flowers! Boys like cars and glowering! Some rules are absolutes! Anyway, Amber says that they should just see if he needs lessons, so by way of a test, he pulls her in and starts with the disorganized swaying. Which is awesome, and which I could do all day if it were me, but...did I mention disorganized? She starts asking what would happen if she wanted to dance faster, and clearly, that's dumb, because she should only be worrying about the one where everyone's going to be watching, and that will be a slow song. He would have been fine in a first-dance situation, meaning that I declare this a waste of time. In fact, when she asks about something faster, he says, "Then go dance with your friends." Mm-hmm. This may not be the hill she wants to die on, really. Amber tries to convince Rob to want to learn to dance, but Rob has an unlimited supply of "I don't care," as it turns out. And then there's a brilliant moment where she asks him why, when they were "on the island," he told her he wanted to learn to dance. He cops to the fact that this was a line. She is shocked! Oh, Amber. Come on. Ultimately, though, Rob unhappily agrees that if it's important to her, he'll do the dancing thing. He explains in an interview that for their wedding day, he figures he can swing doing what she wants.
