Mary-Ellis Bunim: God, if Kevin and Lori aren't going to have sex, can't someone get in a fight? What is with this silent treatment? That is just not acceptable.
Jonathan Murray: I know. We tried to get Coral all riled up in her interview, but she just stared at us. I'm scared of her.
Bunim: Girl, please. Maybe we should plant some racist literature in Mike's closet. You know, like when David "accidentally" left his journal page out on the floor in Seattle?
Murray: Brilliant. I'll get right on it.
As the others play pool, Mike and Coral continue not to talk. In a confessional, Mike says that the way that Coral looks at him makes him feel like he's nothing. Coral gives Mike the stink-eye. Mike thinks that Coral hates him, and it hurts. Lori asks Mike whether he wants to go out somewhere, and Mike says that he just wants to get out of the house. Nicole, Kevin, Rachel, and Mike go to Times Square. All of the hicks crane their necks to look at the big buildings and shiny lights. Rachel is excited about all of the opportunities that the city offers.
Coral is giving Lori a tarot card reading. In an interview, Coral says that her mother is an astrologer, and that she reads cards. Let me tell you something. I used to read tarot cards. It's a load of crap. You can interpret the cards to say whatever you want them to say, especially if you know the person getting the reading. Coral tells Lori that she has a broken heart. In an interview, Lori says that she just broke up with her boyfriend of ten months, and that she misses going to his apartment. Coral tells Lori that she might be alone for a while, but that Lori should take the time, because she won't be alone forever.
