Don says that he's not ready to quit, to which Jillian retorts that he has quit and can't even express one fucking emotion. She tells him to either get angry and say what he thinks, or acknowledge that he's not brave enough to engage. Don continues to try not to engage, which is normally a good tactic when confronted with a crazy lady, but only leads to more misery in this particular situation. Jillian tells Don that he's afraid to get angry, afraid of feeling anything, and afraid of questioning his life. She wants him to let her have it and show that he can be mad. Don tells the editors to get the bleeps ready. And I quote: "I am so fucking tired of everyone calling me a goddamned liar to the entire fucking world that yeah, I'm pissed. And I don't give a shit whether you believe me, I don't give a shit whether you believe me. The only thing I care about is my reputation. I did not do anything wrong. Bleep, bleep, there." Jillian is pleased. Bob says that Don has created a huge hole, and is going to have to work incredibly hard to make it through the weigh-in. It has yet to be seen if he has what it takes to do it.
Courtney runs on the treadmill and has Jell-o legs. She's really struggling, and decides to have a talk with Jillian. Courtney says when she was over 400 pounds, she always felt like a confident person. Everyone wanted her to be successful with her weight loss and her life, and she pushed them away. This includes her mom. She says she never wants to be a disappointment to her parents. Apparently Marci will talk about how she sees people stereotype Courtney, and it really hurts Courtney who never noticed it until Marci brought it up. Jillian says that a lot of times, kids interpret their parents' attempt to help as an indirect form of discontent. The unconscious implication is, "You're broken, and we've got to fix this." As a kid, you think that means that your parents are ashamed of you, and that you're a disappointment. This is indeed how Courtney feels. She hasn't been able to talk to her mom about this yet, and Jillian tells her that she needs to be brave enough to have the conversation. And then Marci needs to work on herself, and not project things onto Courtney. Crisis solved. Thanks, Dr. Phillian!
