Stephen checks out the furniture in the bedroom, which he thinks will "foster his fashion." Nathan shows Lindsay the fishing hole. In an interview, David says that Lindsay is "beautiful" and "ripped, like grinding her teeth, like 'arrrrrrgh!'" Once again, I have no idea what he's talking about. Lindsay and Janet look in the fridge and Lindsay tells Stephen they have a lot of "big pickles, bigger than yours!" like that's an appropriate thing to say to someone you've known for less than an hour. Or ever, really. David says, in a voice-over, that Lindsay and Janet "are going to be a trip. I could tell they were gonna be a team right away." Nathan opens the garage door in the wall, which leads directly out onto the pier. Rebecca points out the rock-climbing wall. Lindsay (once again) can't believe the house, and she and David start climbing the wall. Lindsey passes in front of David, who says he is "coming" and Lindsay replies, "Inside me, baby." Ew! Ew, ew ew! Janet calls out, "You and your sexual innuendo." ["Is it really 'innuendo' if it's completely explicit? I don't really think it is." -- Wing Chun] Nathan suddenly has a stocking cap on. Did it get cold in there? In a really bad edit, Stephen laughs and says, "That would be so cool," even though we have no idea why. Did someone say something, and he was responding to it? We'll never know.
A cab driver asks his passenger if she's ever seen the Space Needle. I have! That makes seven times in this episode alone. His passenger is named Irene, and she's got dark, super-curly hair and a whiny, nasal voice. She asks about the restaurant in the Space Needle, and says she heard it's fancy. She says she'll have to find "a boy to take [her] out there" and "work it in Seattle." Is that where they are? Because the seven sightings of the Space Needle didn't tell me that. The cab driver takes Irene to Pier 70, her new home. Janet walks out for a smoke, and sees Irene. David says, "This poor girl's not going to know what's going on," referring to the fact that they have all met and started to get acquainted. Remember what I said earlier about the producers planning everything? I think they planned for Irene to be the outsider from the start, and this is Exhibit A. Lindsay, Nathan and Stephen introduce themselves to Irene, who has entered the house. Stephen volunteers to show her around the house, because it's so great, in case you didn't get that earlier. In an interview, Irene says, "I arrived. I got this phat pad. I'm not even noticing the people because I've never had a house like this." Hey, do you think the house is amazing? Lindsay and Janet are standing outside, and Lindsay whispers to Janet that Irene is going to hate them, and they should get Rebecca to sleep with them in their room. I hate women like that. I hate people like that. I hate people who make snap judgments and try to cause dissension. ["But not me, right? Because right after that line, I made a snap judgment that Janet and Lindsay were nasty beeyatches, and having seen the whole season, I think I was right." -- Wing Chun] I bet the producers were loving it, though. Janet shushes her and giggles and Lindsay's all, "Why? Who cares?" Inside, Irene asks Stephen if they were waiting for her to pick rooms and Stephen says they were. Back outside, Lindsay tells Janet that she's kidding and that she's not that judgmental. She pauses a beat and says, "Yes, I am," and Janet says, "Who are you kidding?" and they giggle together. Are they in junior high? Stephen says that being in the bathroom feels like being outside, and Nathan says that whole house feels like being outside. Are they done talking about the stupid house yet, because it's getting kind of boring. Lindsay says something that sounds like, "I should just not deal with a great roommate" but I don't know what she's referring to, and I never do find out. Stephen thinks they should pick rooms and the plot thickens.
