This serves as a segue for Aaron's meeting with Brooke. They have to have each of these meetings in a different part of the Malibu Dream House, for some reason. I guess since they're paying for the whole thing, they want to show off as much as they can. Brooke asks if the fact that she's twenty-two bothers Aaron. Rather than hearing Aaron's response to the question, we get a voice-over response that she seems really concerned about it and he wants to "put her mind at ease" that he wanted to keep her around and meet her family. First of all, I think there's a reason that they constantly cut off Aaron's answers to questions: probably because he never actually answers them. Second of all, Brooke is hardly in some sort of panic about this. She gets emotional when she talks about her family, but honestly, she doesn't seem to be all that concerned that she might not get a rose. I think it's one of those situations where Aaron has to convince himself that he's calming down a hysterical woman in order to feel like he's in control, much as he did with Helene a couple of weeks ago. Aaron assures Brooke that she doesn't have anything to worry about "this time." Brooke wonders if this means that she has to worry about "next time."
Next up is Helene. Except for some reason we get Hayley telling us here that she doesn't think Helene and Aaron wouldn't make a good match because Aaron is somebody who "appreciates positive energy and positive attitude." Like yours, Little Miss I Only Talk When I Have Something To Say? She says, "I don't know that Helene is like that all the time." Well, who is? Jeez? Is she trying to say that Helene is a bitch when Aaron isn't around? If so, she should just say so. Christi made similar hints when she was rejected. Just spit it out! Helene tells us that she hopes to get a rose and meet Aaron's family and have him meet hers. Outside, she says that she knows that Aaron's job is important to him and worries that he won't have enough time for a wife. Helene, he's a veep at his dad's bank. He probably spends half the workday golfing, and the other half playing computer golf in his office. Aaron tells us that Helene is smart and "diligent" (I don't think that's the word he actually meant), but that after talking to her, he feels "bruised and battered a little bit." Yeah, she's got all these questions! Do you have time for a wife? What a nag! You'd think she was trying to make an important decision or something.
