Ruthie says, like a two-year-old, "It's selfish," when she means, "How dare you think about anyone but me?". Annoying shoots back, "It's NOT selfish" (and have I mentioned I like her with a backbone?). Justin plays bad cop and says, "We're not negotiating. We've come to this decision as a house."
Then we see the clip they've been showing all season, where Ruthie says, "You guys are making a decision about my life which is going to affect my life without even asking me. That's not fair." Since Ruthie is acting like a child, Justin plays dad and says, "Ruthie, we said 'no.' We're asking for your decision."
Ruthie kind of loses it and just starts shouting, "It's not fair!" and I keep expecting someone to say, "Life's not fair. Deal with it." Ruthie stands up and starts pacing while mumbling, "This is not reality. This is not real. I'll be outside. I can't believe you guys." For a minute, I thought she was having an Irene-style breakdown, because art shouldn't hurt.
Ruthie's sister Sara comes outside and takes Ruthie aside. Ruthie says that she is trying to turn her life around and they kick her out. Sara speaks for like the first time ever, and says, "You want to do it, just not on their terms," and Ruthie babbles on about "this opportunity" again, and how she'll make it without the opportunity, and still I don't get what she is talking about. Anyway, that night her Rutgers friends leave.
The next day Rachel asks if Ruthie is going to the clinic or what. Ruthie refuses to tell her what she is doing, because that's mature. Instead she just packs everything up and talks about how she hopes her roommates don't know what's going on. She throws all her stuff in the car and leaves with her sisters, and in her final (?) confessional, says, "Hasta Pasta."
Next week: Teck says he doesn't know if Ruthie is coming back. WB takes Ruthie out for dinner and asks if she's coming back. WB says "Not knowing where she is and what she's decided is gut-wrenching," and what's with him and his gut, anyway? At dinner, Ruthie says, "You kicked me out. Miss me," and is totally loving the attention. WB wears that damn green shirt again.
