Time's up for this family gathering. As Aaron and Helene say their goodbyes, Ed tells us that Aaron's an okay guy and that he could see him fitting into the family. Leona says that perhaps Helene is falling just a little bit too hard for Aaron; she worries that Helene will be hurt if she isn't chosen. Helene repeats for us that she is indeed falling for Aaron and that they have "chemistry." See 'N Say Aaron tells us that he's getting to know the women better and that all of this is really tough. Aaron and Helene kiss goodbye.
Commercials. We return to Albertville, Alabama. There's a shot of a Baptist church, because it's the South, y'all. See 'N Say Aaron says he "never imagined being as impressed with these families as [he] has been." What the hell was he expecting? And what was he impressed with? That they were all genial and dull, just like him? He recaps the first half of the episode for us in this very annoying voice of constant surprise. Clearly, he must have thought Gwen's family sold babies on the black market and Helene's family performed black magic ceremonies in their basement to summon demons. That's the only way Aaron's shocked tone of voice makes any sense. So now he explains that he's in Alabama to meet Brooke's family. He sits on a dock on some lake or river and feeds ducks. He tells us that he's heard some "interesting" things about Brooke's family and wonders if meeting them will change his opinion of her. I thought his opinion of Brooke was that she's a hot little blonde chick that will probably put out. Does the family even matter?
Brooke tells us that when she saw Aaron sitting out on the pier, she thought he looked handsome and it caused her heart to start racing. These women all seem to have heart conditions of some sort. She comes out to join Aaron, who gives her a single yellow rose. They hug and say they missed each other. Aaron tells us that when he sees Brooke, he's always surprised "in a good way." He calls her a typical Southern Belle, and adds that she's a "bombshell." Essentially, he's saying that whenever he sees her, it makes him horny.
Aaron and Brooke head off in the limo, and twangy music plays. Aaron asks Brooke what Albertville is known for. He was totally fed that line so that Brooke can explain that Albertville is the "fire hydrant capital of the world." I assume that means they manufacture fire hydrants in Albertville, and not that they actually have more fire hydrants on the streets that anywhere else on earth. There's a shot of a statue commemorating Albertville's fire hydrant market domination. It's a statue of a fire hydrant. Aaron urges Brooke to exposit her family background for us. She makes no mention of jailbird dad, but explains that her mom remarried about eight years ago, and that she "inherited" this new family that she just adores. Apparently, that "pride" that Brooke allegedly has for her imprisoned father has some limits; she says that she refers to John David, her stepdad, as "Dad."
