And here they come. All of the women are dressed down as they enter into Andy's house. Jen notes in an interview, "The tone is definitely different. There's [sic] less [sic] girls." The tone is definitely not grammar-checked, for one thing. Andrew tells us that the stakes are raised in this Rose Ceremony because giving someone a rose is tantamount to "ask them [sic] permission to come and meet their family." Outside now, Andrew and Christina have a chat by the pool. Andrew tells Christina, "You're obviously the most..." Old? She's definitely the most old? "...driven. Ready. Mature." Right. Old. He tells her he thinks that she's "ready to get married," and wants to know why he is the one she she wants to get married to. She tells him that he's got "all of the little details" that make her want to meet "the right person." Jen, meanwhile, tells him that this is "much more serious" than she ever thought it would be. Andrew's "a little bit put off" by Tina's unwillingness to open up. She tells him, "If you're looking for a trophy wife, I'm not it." He tells her that a trophy wife would be "easy to come by," and that he wants a real girl. He goes to kiss her, and she turns her head in highly dramatic slow-mo, a power play Andrew notes is his being "lucky to give her a kiss on the cheek." Which is exactly what it is.
Inside, Jen and Kirsten (who I'm more and more convinced will be the final two, I really have to say) crunch the numbers yet again, Kirsten not leaving the recapping to the professionals: "It was one out of twenty-five. Now it's one out of six." And if Johnny gives Jane four apples, how many kids do each of Andrew's siblings have? Kirsten doesn't care, because she feels "really secure." Jen purses her lips and nods, telling us that if it comes down to the two of them, she'll be "a nervous wreck," because if Andrew's looking for someone like Kirsten, he wouldn't be looking for somebody like Tina.
No one cares about The Great Watch Subplot. Tina sits between Kirsten and Christina on the couch while Liz sits about six miles away (and get edited on and off the couch about six times during the scene, by the way). The only saving grace of this scene is that, by this point, I think most of these girls are totally wasted. Tina tells Christina, "If you're making a big deal out of it, whatever. I'll give it back." Christina slurs, "Zhahm no may-ging a big deel outtof it," asking if this is "junior high." Tina deems it a "bomb watch," and says the only nice thing any of the girls say about Kirsten during their entire time in the house, as Tina accuses Liz and Christina of caring that she'll be wearing Andrew's watch during the Rose Ceremony. Kirsten is too busy being carted off by Andrew for some more one-on-one time, as they walk outside to admire "the skyline" of L.A., which is basically comprised of a Gap, a Coffee Bean, a duplex in the Valley, and, on a night when the sky isn't too obscured by smog, the tallest building in Cleveland. Good thing Andy was thoughtful enough to make a special trip.
