Right next to the fishing poles is an intercom, and Nathan plays around with it, accidentally hitting the gate release. He runs out to shut the gate, but sees someone entering and runs back in to tell David, because apparently they are attached at the hip. They both go out and offer the newcomer some help in carrying her bags. Nathan introduces himself to the newcomer, who is named Rebecca, and tells her that they just arrived themselves. Nathan introduces David too. Rebecca is a thin blonde, and somewhat ethereal-looking. She looks like a flower child, or a headliner on the Lilith Fair. Rebecca checks out the house as David and Nathan carry her bags in, and David mumbles that she must be "smuggling midgets" into the house. Once they get inside, David says he wants the bedroom that has a "velveteen rabbit thing" going on. Seriously, how many drugs is he on? He doesn't make any sense. In an interview, Rebecca says that David is a "bit of a smooth character" and she "definitely sees a machismo side to him". She really emphasizes the "cheese" in "machismo," and rightly so. Nathan asks Rebecca where she's from, and she replies, "Richmond, Virginia." Nathan is also from Richmond! David says "the drama's unfolding" as Nathan explains to Rebecca that he and David know each other from VMI. Rebecca says in an interview that she's "surprised that two bonded individuals came in together" but she "thinks it's great" and she would "love it if [her] best friend came out" with her. In fact, she would be "stoked." Nathan asks Rebecca if she has ever gone rock-climbing, because they have a rock-climbing wall right in the living room. David says in an interview that "five minutes into the place, she puts on her rock climbing shoes and goes to work, and I'm like 'What's up with this chick?'" Rebecca reaches the top of the wall.
Rebecca wonders aloud which room she should put all her stuff into. Nathan says he's just leaving his in the living room for now, so he doesn't "piss anybody off." Ah, the drama of choosing rooms. I love the first-episode antics. David is eating an apple, and he says he is "digging that back room real hard." Nathan says he wants the back room. Rebecca does too. Fight! Fight! Oh, no such luck. Nathan reasons that it's a guy's room and Rebecca tells him to stop trying to intimidate her. Nathan says the front room is a girls' room because it has jewelry boxes. Rebecca says, "I can tell what school y'all go to." See, they're trying to set up tension between Rebecca, who is from Virginia and familiar with VMI, and the two guys. Rebecca assumes the guys will be all aggressive and sexist because they go to military school. Don't think the producers didn't totally plan who arrives at what time for maximum conflict.
