Dan and Johnny, sitting in a car. The sun has set. Dan has the nerve to whine about the fact that Johnny is taking the news of his move so well. I guess drama queens don't attract. Johnny says, "I don't wanna..." Dan snaps, "You don't wanna what?" A million Ramones songs start out this way. I don't wanna walk around with you, I don't wanna be a pinhead. I could go on. Then Johnny says, "Okay, I'm really sad." Dan says he's sad too. Aww! They are so sweet. They cry a little and the closed captioning says, "sniffles." Hee.
Sunrise. Everclear play the hit that has since been rewritten a million times to produce their other hits, "Santa Monica." Mark and Flora enter the house, and Mark goes outside to have a little chat with Cynthia. He tells her that he knows Flora is using him to get the business "up," but that Cynthia and the other roomies can still use the shareholder's agreement as leverage: "One of the conditions can be that Flora doesn't work!" Oh, that would be sweet. Mark says that Flora is sacrificing "all the friendships," and Cyn says that she is "very, very aware" that Flora thinks the business will be all hers. Hooray for sabotage! This so precedes Survivor in every way.
Okay, whole house meeting. Right off the bat, Flora says that if she isn't president, she won't work in the business. Mike says that's "kind of, like, putting an ultimatum out." Kind of. Melissa says, "It's our business." They take it to a vote. They write down either "Mark" or "Flora." There are no tiki torches or a bamboo vase to put the slips of paper into. Mark wins five to two. Flora starts ranting, and Sarah goes into a voice-over to say that when "Mitchell gets her pregnant, and she gets a boy instead of a girl, all hell is going to break loose." It could happen. Flora continues to rant that the house has "personal problems against [her], and that's why you're voting against it but the only way [they're] going to get this money is if [she runs] it." She is nuts, dude. Joe stands up (you can barely tell he is standing!) and says there will be no business because he isn't signing anything. "Ultimatums? You're going to give ultimatums to shareholders?" In an interview, he says that moment was "the beginning of the end" of Flora's rise to power and all I can say is THANK THE LORD, because this whole business idea was such a bad one, and Flora would be such a bad boss. She says, "I hate my roomies, I hate them all." Saul the lawyer says that if he were an investor, he would tell them all "no," and The Replacements blare out their song, "I Hate My Generation." We have slackers, in action, on tape. Be ashamed, be very ashamed.
