Back at the ranch, a teary Amy interviews that she's offended by Vicky's comment. Phil then says what might be my favorite thing ever uttered on this show: "Why are you going to your room and crying when those fuckers are in there eating chicken? Why?" Generally when I'm feeling bad or down about something I play Dolly Parton's "Better Get to Livin'" repeatedly on my iPod. However, I think I might have a new mantra. Phil wonders why Amy's mad at him when she should be getting into the HBV virus's face instead. Phil is going into the kitchen to have some damn chicken of his own. He is upset that Amy is so upset, and says that as a husband he feels like he needs to confront Vicky and defend his wife. I mean, really he's defending himself, but if he gives it to Vicky with panache I don't even care what his motivation is. Phil walks up to Vicky and simply says, "You are so mean." He repeats it for emphasis. He tells her that Amy is crying because she's so upset, and tells Vicky that she pissed on the parade of everyone who came back to try to win a spot on the show. Oh, Lord, and then Brady feels like he has to intervene because Phil is getting in Vicky's face. He interviews, however, that he's not going to get violent unless it's in total self defense. Personally, I wouldn't want to throw down physically with Brady. He has the scary Cro-Magnon glint in his eye. Some annoying testosterone-fueled stuff happens, and all the others wonder why they can't eat their damn chicken in peace. Except for Heba, who has to jump in and ask Phil why he has to play the victim all the time. Is this bitch for real? Vicky then classily states, "Go cause your crap somewheres else." Is this bitch for real, part deux?
Phil seems somewhat defeated. He interviews that he's taking an opportunity to put his whole life on display in front of America, and to change his life, and these bastards try to take something that's so pure, honest and real, and make it something so evil and mean. It takes a lot of energy to defend yourself, he says. For reals, man. It's like going back to middle school. Vicky says she's sorry to the others, and adds that she's proud of all the weight they lost. I'm sure they're touched by the golden sheen of her benevolence. Heba surprises everyone by making a rational comment, saying that maybe Vicky should just go upstairs and apologize to Amy if she's truly upset. Vicky says, "For what? I didn't do anything to Amy." Stacey starts crying. She tearfully interviews that she was looking forward to coming back for so long, and to have everything be so different is very upsetting. She tells the Blue Team that she doesn't even know if she wants to come back if she'd be stepping into this pile of doo. Heba says that it's not like this when Phil isn't there. Until the Blue Team members start turning on each other and the carnage piles high like so many temptation challenge leftovers. Stacey does not buy that Phil is the only one who's causing problems. They're all causing problems, and she knows it.
