Nathan is (sigh) on the phone with Stephanie, crying. Stephanie tells him that they'll get through it. Nathan says he just wants to hold her hand, and that he doesn't have any affection in his life right now, and he needs it. Maybe he could snuggle up with David one of these nights? Stephanie says she knows. Nathan says he's "thinking for the worst tonight," whatever that means. In an interview, Nathan says that if they don't make it through this five months, it will be a lesson to him, and he'd rather learn it now than six years down the road after they're married.
Irene is giving Nathan a back rub in his bed. Doesn't that count as affection? She asks about the phone call to Stephanie. Dude, which one? It looks like he made about ten in that one day. Nathan says that Stephanie was out with her friends and she had a great conversation about him, and she misses him. Irene says that of course she misses him. Nathan jokes that he thinks she knows he was upset, considering that he was bawling on the phone to her. Of course, we don't even know that he was referring to the phone call we just saw, but I have to make these kinds of assumptions or I'll go mad. In an interview, Irene says that Nathan has "awesome qualities" and that he "needs to be independent Nathan right now." I enjoy the comparison between loser Nathan and loser George Costanza quite a bit. I also agree that Nathan and Stephanie could use a little distance. They seem really, really dependent on one another. Irene goes into her bedroom and Nathan calls out, "Good night, jackass!" Irene responds, "Good night, loser!" I'm sure the other roommates appreciate them yelling to one another while they're all trying to sleep.
Aubbie is talking to the gang at the radio station. She says she's not mad about the doorjamb because stuff happens. Who would be mad about a doorjamb? Well, I guess Glenn would. Nathan says that there were other people carrying equipment, implying that maybe they weren't the ones who did it. Dude, don't make the producers break the fourth wall and bust out the footage. They're going to have to do it later this season, anyway. Aubbie prevents that from happening now when she explains that Glenn saw one of them jamming equipment through the door, but he didn't say who it was, and it doesn't matter. If he saw them doing it, why didn't he tell them to stop? This whole subplot is so stupid. Aubbie says they will all go back and fix it. She starts to leave and Rebecca and Lindsay call out to her. They start explaining that they may have been the ones who caused the damage, but they're not sure. Stephen walks up and says they will all go back and fix it together and have fun. Aubbie agrees that they will make it fun. How many people does it take to fix a doorjamb?
