On the roof, Beth and Dom talk about Dom's freelancing gigs; he sold two articles to Daily Variety and is stoked. Beth, on the other hand, spent $300 on food at the mall that day. She Jessica Wakefields a laugh and a hair toss. In the confessional, Dom says that he thinks they may all get along after all.
Jon sits on his bed and plays his gee-tar, while David irons. David jokes that the song Jon is singing is "about masturbation." In the doorway, Aaron and Dom, in the time-honored fashion of boys everywhere, burst into guffaws at the word "masturbation." Jon wonders if there isn't something better to talk about than sin. David explains that he likes to push people's buttons. Really? Who knew? In the bedroom, Jon is stunned that David doesn't know the words to "Friends in Low Places," and truthfully, so am I. I thought everyone knew that song. Anyhow, David and Jon chat for a bit about Dolly Parton, and a song of hers about a dog that died, which both of them love. David quips that he's Jon's "cultural brother." See? Music: bringing roommates together.
In an interview, David explains that his relationship with Jon is such that they will be getting along fine, and then "bing! Something happens." Something indeed, because this statement is followed by the stupidest argument in Real World history, wherein Jon and David argue about cleaning up some spilled Styrofoam packing materials. Yes, you read that correctly. Styrofoam peanuts: tearing roommates apart. The best part of the argument is when Aaron, in his Lambda Chi Dad's Day T-shirt, has to jump in and prevent David from physically attacking Jon over the Styrofoam peanuts. No, I take that back. The best part is when David screams, "You're the only motherfucker that has Styrofoam!" Jon just stares at him. Aaron, predictably, tells David to chill, dude. David starts squealing like a girl. Later, in an interview, Jon tells us he was proud of how calmly he handled David during the Great Styrofoam War of 1993. Yeah, put that on your résumé, country boy.
