Eiffel Tower Shot Vingt-Six. Wednesday. Leah, in the office, talks to Brice on the phone. Brice asks how they are doing as a group. Leah rats Chris out for missing the meeting, which isn't what Brice asked. Leah says that she doesn't have any instructions from him, and that he's the point person. Brice wonders whether they asked him for instructions and Leah says that she hasn't, and that no one really talks to Chris. Which is a little more information than Brice asked for. So professional, that Leah. Brice is not your girlfriend, and he doesn't need to hear about your personal problems.
Chris walks down the street alone. He voice-overs that he feels like he's been giving the roommates a lot of respect and they haven't returned it, and he hears them talking behind his back. I don't know that stealing toothbrushes and using all the hot water constitutes respect, but the talking behind his back is kind of shitty.
Chris and Ace mix up some drinks and play pool. Ace interviews that it's midnight and his assignment isn't done, but that he thinks he's born to play instead of work. Hope he has a trust fund, then. Meanwhile, Mallory, Christina, and Simon are at the office. In a confessional, Simon says that Brice has changed the rules so that if one person's assignment is late, then none of them gets paid. Well, none of them gets the bonus. They still get their salary. Christina says she's going to stay and finish her assignment.
Back home, Adam tells the other guys that he doesn't think they're going to get paid. Chris yells that he just wants 450 Euro every Friday. I don't know if that's salary plus bonus, but I sure hope so, because that's a lot of money. Ace interviews that Chris is pretty drunk, which was Ace's plan, because being drunk degrades Chris's pool game. Chris makes some terrible shots. Christina, Mallory, and Simon arrive home. Christina notices some chocolate or cocoa that was spilled on the mantel and she cringes away like it was a decapitated head. Adam tells her that it's just spilled cocoa and Ace promises they'll clean it up. Christina thinks it looks like a skid mark and keeps talking about how gross it is. Mallory doubts that Chris will clean it up, and Ace takes responsibility for the spill and the clean-up. In a confessional, Ace says that Christina needs to let it go, because little things will happen when seven people live together. Mallory and Christina head to bed at 2:55 AM.
It's 4:43 AM. Chris and Ace are still playing pool. Christina tries to sleep. Now it's 6:23 AM. More pool playing. Christina tosses and turns. Now it's 7:30 AM. From Christina's room, you can hear the balls clacking around. Christina interviews that the pool table is right above her room. Ace interviews that it was an important game, because a hundred dollars was riding on it. Christina finally gets out of bed and says that she's going to "beat him with a pool stick." Notice that she said "him" and not "them," so I think she had already decided to yell at Chris and not Ace.
