Back at the firehouse, Syrus and Kameelah flirt flirtingly and in a flirt-like fashion as they set up a game of pool on a floor of the firehouse I'm convinced didn't even exist until this week. Syrus tells us in a confessional that, concerning his first impressions of Kameelah, he "thought she was attractive. I was completely shocked that there was another black person living in the same house." Yeah, Sy, get in line. I guess the quota-o-meter over at B-M headquarters was unplugged when this season's inhabitants were chosen. How else to account for this aberrant development? Over in Kameelah's confessional, she admits, "I do like Syrus. He's cool," and then later, "I like very clean-cut men. Bald heads." Cut back to the pool game, where Kameelah tells a very clean-cut, quite bald-headed Syrus that "I'm gonna go ahead and say it. I think you like me." Syrus could not be more noncommittal in his response, and volleys her daring come-on line right back in her face by asking her just what kind of "like" she means. An unbelievably mature discussion about the nature of the word "like" ensues, one which will probably culminate with a tri-folded note reading, "If you like me, check this box" she'll slip to him tomorrow morning in homeroom. She falters when he asks if she means "as a roomie," and Syrus eschews any further attempt at her pursuing of romance with the wholly noncommittal, "You stick with me, you'll be all right, shorty." Which, and I'm going to go out on a limb and guess here, was exactly the response she was not at all looking for.
