And then Julia goes out to the deck so we can look at the Ben-inspiring Matterhorn while Julia blathers on about how you have to go into things a hundred per cent, or you might lose someone like Ben, like that is some kind of scary prospect. And Lindzi is talking about how she went into this thinking it would be fun, and how weird it is to actually fall in love. And I hate how every man and woman on this show does this: at the beginning, they all pretend that they're there in all serious. And by the end, they pretend that they just did it for a lark and then it got serious. EVERY DAMN TIME.
And then Julia wants to know about this other chick, Courtney, and the music shifts, and Lindzi says the two of them are very different from each other, and then the jaunty acoustic guitar starts up and Julia is apparently convinced that Lindzi is awesome and they hug.
She tells Ben that she liked Lindzi, and she says she's convinced Lindzi wants to give herself to him. News flash, Julia: the overnight dates were a couple episodes ago. Ben tells us it's been a great day, and he's glad Lindzi was well-received. Lindzi says Ben's family is "awesome" and I bet the Flahskaksjfk family is excited to get the incredibly discerning Lindzi's seal of approval.
Barbara tells us that she thinks Lindzi is "the total package" when it comes to women who could totally be possibly ready for a potential marriage if Ben maybe proposes a potential marriage.
And then Julia is expressing concern when Ben talks about Courtney being a model, because I guess not getting along with other people is one thing, but being considered pretty enough for people to want to pay you to take your picture is quite another. Anyway, red flag!
The next day, Ben goes outside to whack it while looking at the Matterhorn or whatever, and now Ben is telling us that his sister and mom have already heard a couple of negative things about Courtney, so either they HAVE been coached, or Ben is admitting to saying negative things about Courtney I guess.
Inside, Barbara and Julia are having the world's boringest conversation about Courtney and Julia says "red flag" again.
And then Courtney shows up, still playing the role of the apple-cheeked sweetheart who totally knows what humans are talking about when they talk about love, and who totally doesn't have a fist where her heart should be.
