Outdoor shots of Seattle. At Pier 70, Poull asks Lindsay if people call her "Puff Mama." Lindsay says they call her "Big Hair." Who calls her that? No one has ever called her that. Ever. And if they did, what a lame-ass nickname. Poull sits down and tells Janet that all he's heard about for months is her, and what a great friend she is. Janet peels the label from her beer bottle as she says, "God, she's the only one [in whom] I invest a half-assed effort. Without Linds, I'd be dead by now." Wow, I'm sure that made your other roommates feel just great. And I'm sure Lindsay, for that matter, was glad to hear that you only invest a "half-assed effort" in her. I hate Janet. Lindsay tries to save it by saying she "likes everyone in this house" but she doesn't "like everything about everyone in this house," just like they don't like everything about her. But she can invest a lot of time into Janet, and she thinks that means a lot. Janet just lights up another Marlboro Light.
Daytime at The End offices. Lindsay informs Janet that even though they "are all used to Aspen, which is fairly high, the altitude [in Nepal] is killer." Okay, Lindsay is from Colorado, so I guess she would be "used to Aspen," but why would anyone else be? I love these out-of-context conversations: they just make the roommates look like bigger idiots than they actually are. Janet says it's going to kill her. In an interview, Janet says she's heard that "people suffer from the altitude, like, all the time" and she's never been higher than, "like, seven thousand feet." She tells Lindsay that she's starting to get really worried about being sick the whole time. I've got one word for you, Janet: Nicorette. Get some. Trust me on this. Lindsay says that she's worried about "poo" and getting "the worst padoodles" because everyone gets them. Could she speak English, like, ever? Janet says, "So basically, we're gonna stink, our bums are gonna be on fire, our stomachs are gonna explode, I'll be vomiting from the altitude, but it'll be peaceful." In an interview, Lindsay says that all she is thinking about is how much time she's going to have to spend in the hospital after this vacation. Now that's the positive attitude I've come to know and love from this show! Hello? It's a free trip! FREE! Ingrates. Lindsay and Janet giggle about poo, and then Lindsay makes a weird little rabbit face for no apparent reason.
