Colin talks to his friend Trevor on the phone and says that this is the coolest thing that's ever happened to him, and that he feels like he doesn't deserve it. He discovers that the decision has to be unanimous, and he's nervous that this group will have a hard time agreeing on something. They set this up to be a big conflict -- will they agree? We can only wait and see how it turns out. Again, in a boring episode, even the tiniest potential conflict will be magnified.
Justin and Tet Girl go to see the Hawaii portion of the AIDS quilt. Tet Girl says it makes her realize that she's never going to see her father again. Not to be mean, but the guy's been dead for five years and she's just figuring this out? Later, she crouches in a very dramatically lit alcove and cries. My cynical side notes that even when expressing her grief, she takes care to do so in a well-lit fashion in order to look good for the cameras. Justin approaches her, and tells us in a voice-over that he wouldn't presume to give her advice on handling her grief, because he doesn't understand it. Maybe he needs to make like Wonder Bread, and take her out to lunch. That seems to work. Instead, he gives her his lei and she says she feels like she could cry forever.
Tet Girl tells us she doesn't want to have sex because of her fear of AIDS. Justin says they share this fear because they've both seen people die of AIDS. Tet Girl says she has no problem telling someone to get out, and that she's the queen of killing the mood. I would think that would be easy enough for her -- all she has to do is open her mouth.
Justin, Ruthie and Wonder Bread go to Diamond Head. Once there, they decide they need to plan the trip. I'm not sure what climbing a volcano has to do with their trip, but whatever. In a confessional, Colin says he wants to go to Africa (and they already showed this clip once in this episode -- did I mention it was boring?). Teck wants to go to "Beirut, China". Beirut? Annoying wants to go to Japan. WB says it's "all about India." Justin tells them India has this. India has that. "Take me there. I want to go there." Isn't that a song from the Rugrats soundtrack? Plus, he said "all about" again. I'm all about him not saying that anymore. The three at Diamond Head decide on India. WB says, "I really think that we have a lot of pull on this decision being that we hiked to the top of the world to think about it." Oh yeah. Your decision is somehow more valid because you HIKED first. I see where you're coming from.
