Jamie and Kelley are having a discussion. Jamie says that the relationship between them is "strained" and "tense." In an interview, Jamie says that Kelley has a "distaste" for him (he really likes that word), and he wants to tell her that she needs to "take ownership over her feelings." Shut up, Jamie. He tells Kelley that "jealousy is rooted in competition." When he says the word jealousy, Kelley cocks one incredibly thin eyebrow, like, "Oh no, he didn't." Kelley interrupts to say that it's vain of him to assume she's jealous or has a problem with him because she likes him, and that it's crazy. I notice that Jamie is wearing a T-shirt that says, "Ithaca is Gorges," and I saw the same one when I was in Ithaca a few weeks ago. Just inserting some local flavor for you. Jamie believes Kelley is "frustrated" by "the way [he] lives [his] life with [his] business," and that if he says he drives a BMW, Kelley gets pissed off. First of all, please don't talk about your "business" anymore. Second of all, I think Jamie has some guilt issues over his circumstances and is projecting them to Kelley. And third of all, shut up, Jamie. Really. Kelley tells him to "stop talking out of [his] ass" and that he's the one with issues, not her, and she wonders why he even cares. Jamie says that the whole thing is "immature" and "third grade." Kelley storms off and says that she can't communicate with him. Jamie says it's "because [he's] dealing with a psycho woman." Kelley stops outside her room and says, "Now who's in third grade?" This is one of those instances where I'm sure the roommates wish there were actual doors on their rooms so there could be some door-slamming. As it is, Kelley has to be satisfied with whisking her curtain shut. Not quite the same impact. Meanwhile, her friend Kristi just kind of stands there.
Julie comes down the stairs to greet Musical Matt. He tells her he took the day off school to practice with her. In a confessional, Julie says that she needs to "grab this opportunity and run with it" and "not keep wallowing in the past or worrying about the future." Julie introduces Musical Matt to Danny, and they shake hands. Julie tells Danny that she went to Neutral Ground, but didn't end up going to Baxter's later. Danny says that he's disappointed in her. In an interview, Danny says that it's obvious that Baxter is interested in Julie, and he's going to step in and fix it. I appreciate him trying to help out, but he's kind of crossed a line between interest in a friend, and nosiness here, don't you think?
