Roxanne and Tammy head to Kinko's for the flyers, while Allie goes to campus to talk to the cheerleading coach. She looks...insane. She's wearing a cute black dress, but her hair looks like she just crawled out of a wind tunnel -- in Uzbekistan -- and she's making creepy demonic faces. Maybe it's a cheerleader thing. The coach, a cute blonde, tells Allie about the exclusivity deal with GR, but says that in "all fairness to the University," not to mention blonde ex-cheerleader solidarity, she wants to split the teams now for both tents. They hug goodbye as Allie interviews about her background in cheerleading back in Florida, and how they "bonded." I'm not saying girls aren't weird, I'm just saying this episode is ALL ABOUT how weird boys are, and in such a way and to such a degree that it almost makes up for last week.
Homecoming Week! A marching band plays in a courtyard, Gold Rush passing flyers. Allie, fresh from being lied to in her face by the cheerleading coach, sees them and freaks. There's footage of Allie, the boys, Allie, all trying to get the word out. Lee tells some guy that the yellow tent "sucks," which was pretty awesome. Some dumb college boys tell Allie how much they love steak, they want steak, and she's like, "Yellow lot. Repeat after me," and they're like we know, we know. "...But we get steak?" She walkies to Roxanne and Tammy about how Rush already has their flyers out and they're on campus, and as they're talking Allie overhears a DJ talking about how there are "money and prizes" to be found at the blue tent, and screams cutely into the phone: "You don't even know what I just heard!" Roxanne listens to them clearly giving all kinds of publicity to the blue tent, and Allie takes off to get the guy to announce the yellow tent also, and then there's a long, awesome, long long shot of Roxanne staring into space with her mouth hanging open, in the van, with her phone still flipped open, the letters OMG like a halo over her lovely head. It's hilarious and so relatable. I'm altogether very conflicted about Roxanne, because I like her virtue and how it has cracks in it, and how she seems to be very sure of herself...but the cult-susceptible behavior makes me think that's not half as true as I think it is. I want to be friends with her, that's for sure, so I guess I like her, but this isn't a popularity contest. It's a game show about making sure you tune in each week, that itself doesn't really care who wins, except wanting you to talk about who wins, so you'll tune in next season.
