Tricia asks Helene how she thinks the experience has affected her. Tricia's rocking now, too. Helene says she had a good time. And stuff. She met a great guy. You know. She says that, in the future, if Aaron doesn't pick her, she's going to end up comparing future boyfriends to him. Everybody there thinks that's a compliment, while I suspect most single men are relieved. It's really not hard to measure up to Aaron. Tricia tells Helene that Alden and Kathy love their family very much. Everybody goes, "Awww." Alden says that Tricia "set the bar pretty high for the next daughter-in-law in the family." Ewwww. He makes it sound like anybody marrying into the family has some sort of obligation to prove herself to them in order to be accepted. Repulsive. Aaron tells us that Tricia is a "cohesive" part of this family, and that he needs to know where she stands. Whatever. I think they're just holding up cue cards for Aaron to read during these interviews so that they can have some sort of narrative, no matter how redundant or unnecessary. Aaron drags Justin and Tricia into the kitchen to get their opinions. They think Helene's fine. Tricia says that if Aaron and Helene are having a good time, that's all the matters. Tricia makes a point of saying that Aaron doesn't want a woman who is totally "dependent" on him. I think Tricia's been getting bribes from Foreshadowing. Outside, Helene jokes that they're trashing her inside. Alden asks Helene if she's got any questions about Aaron. But then Aaron comes back out, and Helene jokes about trying to get "dirt" on Aaron, and no actual questions are ever asked.
The evening comes to an end, and Alden tells Helene that they enjoyed having her around and she's great blah blah blah. He tells us that marriage is a big commitment. Whatever. Don't expect me to give much credence to the comments from people who willingly participate in a show that makes a mockery of it. Aaron and Helene head back out in a limo. Kathy tells us that she thought Helene was great. But tomorrow, they're going to open up their house to Brooke, and Kathy's looking forward to meeting her, too. Kathy has the same vocal tic that Aaron does -- her pitch goes up at the ends of her sentences, like she's surprised at what she's saying.
Inside the limo, Helene tells Aaron that she's impressed with his family and felt at ease. And stuff. Whatever. You know. They make out. Helene tells us that before she met the family, she was 100% sure that she'd accept a marriage proposal. Now she's 110% sure. See 'N Say Aaron tells us that tomorrow is an important day. He's hoping that after the family meets Brooke, they'll be able to help him decide. I can see that conversation with them: "They both have great asses. What am I supposed to do?" Aaron and Helene make out in the limo.
