Bob takes Estella away for some alone (and masseuse makes three!) time, and we're finally seeing another one of those staggering changes on this show we've been hearing so much about: during the spa massages this season, the guy and the girl face each other! What will they think of next? Candlelight dinners at fancy getaways that feature pinot noir instead of a merlot? Because this is really thinking outside the box here. Anyway, Estella (faces Bob and!) tells him that everyone thought her deaf dad rocked. Seriously. "All my friends loved my father. They thought he was so cool. He was deaf, but everybody understood him." Yeah, but they made fun of him the second they left your house. Hey, get those flaming torches out of here! I'm just the messenger, the deaf-imitator. Kids just do that shit. I'm sure he was a great guy and all, but as soon as his back was turned...oh now, see, that one was totally my fault.
Bob employs a lot of repeat-the-last- thing-your-companion- just-said-to-you- to-show- you're-listening TherapySpeak in this segment, which seems to mean he actually likes her quite a bit. He regurgitates, "You grew up with a deaf father." What? "You grew up with a deaf father." What? "You grew up with a deaf father." WHAT? See, now that one was my fault, too. Bob continues, "You basically grew up with two languages." That's true. My aunt was a therapist for the deaf for a long time, and so I know the alphabet. And how to say "asshole." And also, to say my favorite thing, "flying asshole." There's actually a way to say that in sign language. It's kind of hard to explain, but I'm doing it right now at my desk.
