Previously on The Real World: Irulan and Alton fought. Irulan didn't know if she could trust Alton because he makes out with lots of chicks. Irulan wasn't sure what the point was of her relationship with Gabe. Steven accidentally told Trishelle he loved her, and they decided to be just friends. Or did they?
Trishelle and Irulan get into the elevator wearing their work outfits, which consist of a black bikini top, a short black skirt, and a silver cowboy hat. Irulan and Trishelle see Steven on their way out, and find out that he's not working that night. In an interview, Trishelle says that she cares about Steven, but that she's confused about their relationship. Irulan says she thinks Trishelle and Steven have unfinished business. Trishelle says she feels like a liar. Wuh? Where did that come from? In an interview, Trishelle says that she loves Steven but she doesn't know if she wants to put herself in that position. Insert your own doggy-style joke here.
Suddenly, Trishelle and Steven are going somewhere in the van. Isn't she supposed to be at work? In an interview, Steven says he's learned that he can't separate sex from caring. Steven tells Trishelle that he doesn't think you can sleep with someone for as long as he slept with her and not develop feelings. Trishelle fucked the love right into him! Trishelle didn't think Steven cared, and he says he didn't think he did. In an interview, Trishelle says it's good to have their feelings out in the open. Trishelle asks if they still have a moratorium on hooking up. Steven doesn't know. In an interview, Trishelle says she doesn't know exactly what the boundaries are with Steven. Do these people even know what "boundaries" are? Is there a boundary they haven't crossed this season?
Irulan calls Gabe and gets his voicemail. We get to hear every ring, so this episode must have been a little short or something. Because seeing Irulan on the phone, I think we all could have filled in the dialing and the phone ringing parts without actually hearing them. In an interview, Irulan says she hasn't really talked to Gabe since everything happened with Alton. Irulan complains to Brynn that Gabe won't talk to her. In an interview, Irulan says she and Gabe haven't exactly broken up, but they're not exactly together.
The roommates go to volunteer at a homeless shelter. Ha! Just kidding. I just got sick of typing, "The roommates hang out in a bar." But that's what they are really doing. Alton and Irulan have a conversation that doesn't make any sense, as usual. They both really just like to hear themselves talk. In an interview, Irulan admits that she cares for Alton deep down inside. Alton starts babbling about how he loves Irulan and she doesn't love him. I don't know. Alton makes no sense. He says something about how he thinks sex is special. In an interview, Irulan says that Alton has slept with half of Vegas, which makes him a "dirty bird."
In an interview, Frank explains what happens next, but of course, we don't get to see it, even though there are cameras right there. Frank claims that Alton was really drunk. One of Frank's friends, Sara, reached for a drink, and Alton drunkenly hit her hand, causing her to spill some of the drinks on the table. Sara agreed to pay for a replacement drink for Alton. Alton is all fired up about it. Frank tells Alton to lighten up, because he's drunk and it's not a big deal. Alton won't drop the chalupa. I can't believe I just used the phrase "drop the chalupa." Do you see what this show is doing to me? In an interview, Irulan says that Alton drives her up a wall, and sometimes it's due to his drinking.
