Kyle and Keri snuggle in the bed behind the oval window. In a confessional, Kyle admits that he is attracted to Keri, but he's in love with Nicole, so it can be a struggle. Keri tucks Kyle into bed. In an interview, Keri says that she and Kyle are attracted to each other, but that it's not worth screwing up his relationship over. She adds that in seventh grade, they would have just made out without any concern for his girlfriend, but they are "a little more mature now." Plus, they're on television, so they wouldn't have plausible deniability. Keri could do so much better.
Tonya wears only a towel as she calls Kim, one of her bosses at the Parks Department. She uses the "call in fake-sick" voice to say that she can't come to work because she's in too much pain. But apparently not enough pain to get up and take a shower. In an interview, Tonya says that Justin is coming to town, but that she's worried because she hasn't been feeling well. Tonya tells Theo that she's not going to work. She's abandoned the stiff walk while holding her back. In an interview, Theo says that he thinks that Tonya's illness is real, and that she's not faking it, but he thinks that not going to work has more to do with staying home to have sex with her boyfriend. Is Justin even there yet? Tonya walks out of her bedroom, still wearing a towel, and guzzling soda straight from the bottle. I still don't know whether Justin is there already. It seems like they would have showed him arriving. Unless this whole segment is chronologically out of place. Wouldn't that be a surprise on this show?
Kyle talks to Nicole on a pay phone, so we don't get to hear her end of the conversation. He says that he's known Keri a few weeks, and that he likes her, but that she's not his soulmate. He is so Dawson. In an interview, Kyle says that Nicole is upset because they are so far apart. On the phone, Kyle tells Nicole that he explained their situation to Keri when they first met. In an interview, Kyle says that he wants to be honest with Nicole, because he's twenty-two, and he wants to learn about himself through his relationships with women like Keri. Blink, dude! He never blinks in interviews. On the phone, Kyle tells Nicole that he doesn't know what's going to happen when the show is over.
Beyoncé and them sing "Bootylicious" on the soundtrack. In the kitchen, Kyle sings along. Keri tells him not to stop singing. Kyle says that he can't help singing when he's around her. Who's cheesy now? In an interview, Kyle says that he's never met someone who looks and acts like Keri, and has class like Keri. Also, her lips drive him nuts. The whole scene goes slow-motion as the editors try to make it out like Kyle is checking out Keri's ass when she bends over to get something out of the oven, when in reality, I think he was just looking at the food in the oven. In an interview, Keri says that she has no clue what's going on with Kyle and Nicole. Keri claims that women "have extremely, extremely jealous personalities." We do? News to me.
Kyle says that he's going to go confront Theo, who now apparently doesn't want to go to the lake house on Friday. Kyle is pissed. Theo says that he has a right to change his mind. Kyle thinks that Theo is being a jerk. In an interview, Theo says that nobody wants to hang out with Kyle and Keri because they are hugging and kissing all the time. Kyle thinks that Theo is screwing him over. Theo disagrees, and Kyle walks out. I don't blame Theo.
