Melissa is sitting on the porch painting on canvases while Matt continues to paint the chairs he's been working on for like three weeks. Matt asks if the painting really helps her "sanity." Melissa says it does. She's working on a little painting of a yellow chick on a blue background that says, "Scared." It's really good! I swear! I totally want one of those paintings. In a confessional, Melissa says that painting is "therapeutic," and it's "less emotionally invasive" than talking to a therapist. Isn't the point of therapy to be emotionally invasive? Melissa admires her painting. In a confessional, Matt says that Melissa is "so much more fun to be around and more solid, and a little more likeable." In an interview, Melissa says that she is "stepping far, far outside of the person [she] was when [she] first got there." Melissa continues to admire her painting. Hey, I would too!
Melissa shows Lionel all of the paintings she has been working on. She says that they are "all things that [she] feels about [herself] sometimes." Okay, I know I keep saying this, but they are all really good. In an interview, Melissa says that most people can't "acknowledge their flaws with words," but that painting makes it easy for her. We see a close-up of a painting of a dragonfly that says "Nasty." Lionel compliments her paintings. As he leaves, Melissa hugs him and says, "I'm an artist!" In an interview, Melissa says that being there has taught her that she "can try new things and [she] might possibly be good at them." Melissa lies down on the couch and then starts talking to herself, saying that she has to paint, but falls asleep instead. What was that about?
We see a big crowd, and the on-screen text tells us that it is New Orleans Jazzfest. In an interview, Danny says that Jazzfest is "way better than Mardi Gras." Remember Danny? Yeah, we haven't seen him or David this week. Jamie and Julie wander through the crowd. Jamie gets a sticker for Julie that says, "I love sex." He sticks it on her chest, totally feeling her up in the process. Is he drunk, or what? Oh, he is holding a big cup of beer. Julie hands Jamie a sticker that says, "I love 2 Pimp." In an interview, Jamie babbles about spirituality some more. Julie leans back against Jamie as they sit on the ground and listen to music. Julie tells Jamie that he's "trying so hard to reach this elevated level" of spirituality, when he's already there. In an interview, Jamie says that to see these levels, you could travel to places like Tibet, or you could live with "the horny Mormon at the Belfort." I liked Jamie better when he was throwing grapes at cars. Julie and Jamie dance together in slow motion. Because they've learned something.
