In an interview, Dom says very solemnly that if he had been lying in his bed trying to sleep, when something serious was going on, and he had ignored it, he wouldn't be able to live with himself.
In an interview, Jon sighs that he wishes he had stepped in and done something.
Back in the hallway, Beth and David are arguing again. He says they were just playing. Beth says, "That's what a rapist says too, 'You wanted it, baby.'" David, flabbergasted, says he didn't try to rape Tami. Beth spits that "no means no, okay? No means no." Thanks for the PSA, Beth. David reiterates that he was just playing and that by no means was he going to rape anyone. Beth says that Tami was in her bra and underwear. David says that she wears the same amount of clothing on the beach every day! Beth tells David that Tami is crying, and very upset. David points out, again, that both Tami and Beth were laughing throughout the entire "ordeal."
In an interview, David says that Beth really freaked him out when she mentioned rape, because that's not a word to be thrown around lightly.
In the girls' room, Beth sneers that in this case, "No meant yes." God, Beth, lay off the Lifetime, Television for Women. Equating this incident with rape is such a huge insult to women who have actually been sexually assaulted that I can't even...I'm speechless, basically. David was out of line, things got out of hand, it was stupid. But it was so not anything even approximating rape that I don't know what to say.
Tami puts on her leather jacket and screws in some larger earrings and takes her boom box and leaves the house.
David puts on his jacket and leaves the house. He mournfully strolls along the beach. In an interview, he says he left the house that evening because Beth made him feel uncomfortable staying there.
Beth makes the rape equation again, this time to Jon. Jon tries to side-step the entire rape comparison, and basically tells her that it's over, so they have to fix the damage and not focus on who did what to whom. Beth says vehemently that she hopes David is "punished. In some way, shape or form. That he is punished!"
How interesting that MTV chose to run a date-rape PSA during this second batch of commercials.
Tami comes back to the house. Irene and Beth both pledge to support her, because, as Irene says, "what David did was wrong."
Everyone in the house is on pins and needles, wondering how to resolve the David/Tami issue. Irene snips that she felt unsafe with David in the house. ["Dude, she's the one with the gun!" -- Wing Chun]
