Jamie asks about a picture of Danny and Paul sitting on the mantel. In an interview, Jamie says he hasn't ever lived with a gay guy before, and then asks the interviewer if "gay" is the "politically correct" word. First of all, I refuse to believe that he went to Cornell, because he's so stupid. Second of all, I refuse to believe that he went to Cornell, a fairly large university, and never encountered a gay man, or had to deal with issues of sexuality, unless he went out of his way to avoid it. Loser.
Julie and Kelley are unpacking in their shared room. Julie starts playing the guitar. Here it comes. Danny stands in the doorway listening, and tells us in a voice-over that he wants to "protect her" because she's "so cute and innocent." What is she, a kitten? Julie stops playing (mercifully) when she sees Danny but he tells her to continue. In an interview, Julie says Danny is "super sweet, ultra-sensitive and a beautiful human being." She knows all this in less than twenty-four hours, I guess. Then again, the interview could be from the end of the season. In an interview, Julie says she thinks she will do a lot of growing while she's living in the house. As they prepare for bed, Julie says she can't believe she gets this big bed all to herself. Danny tells her she doesn't right now, and hops in with her. Julie still has all her clothes on, by the way, even though Kelley is parading around in a camisole and boy-cut pants. In an interview, Julie says at BYU she would never be allowed to lie in bed with a male friend and talk. Julie tells Danny it's 4 AM and she has a boy in her room, which is definitely against the rules.
In the morning, everyone gets up and we see some morning rituals including David working a heavy bag. Julie's on the phone with her parents. Her father asks if she went to church, and she says she did. He asks if she met a particular bishop or something, and she says he was "out of town." That sounds kind of like going to church for the last five minutes just to get a church bulletin to take home as "proof." Not that I've ever done that. Her father asks her who her roommate is, and she says Matt. This provokes her father to say he has to have a talk with her. Did her parents not know she would be living with guys? In an interview, Julie says that living in this house, she feels like she can say anything to her parents and they can't do anything about it. Her father tells her he is going to build a "Wall of Jericho" down the center of her room. Julie jokes that it's a king-sized bed so everything is fine. Her mother seems to get the joke, but her father doesn't seem very amused. Matt and Melissa are sitting in the room, totally listening in, like butt out! Julie says that she just wants her parents to try to understand that she is doing this.
