Julie, Norman, and Andre are in the audience. Julie says that it was excellent to see Becky in her own environment, and that she was wonderful, and that she didn't understand how someone couldn't just love Becky after seeing her that way. Outside, the lofties applaud Becky as she exits after the show with her friend.
Close-up of Eric as he speaks. I now realize the beret he is wearing is made of BLACK LEATHER. Hey, Eric, the song is "Raspberry Beret," not "Black Leather Beret," you dumb-ass. Anyway. He says, "You don't want to ask me about Becky," with what I'm sure he thinks is a charming smile, but in reality is a smarmy, shit-eating grin. Cut to a shot of Becky wearing her faux-Gaultier gear from the beginning of the season and squeezing her Dixie-cup boobs. Eric shakes his head, laughing, and says, "I got nothing to say about Becky."
Becky says, "Eric -- how can you describe Eric?" Well, I have a few choice phrases. Shall I list them alphabetically or by subject? Moving on. Becky says, "Eric is like somebody's brother." She goes on to say that it's not that they haven't gotten close but...And here it's apparent that they obviously HAVEN'T gotten close since she concludes rather lamely by saying, "Eric is Eric."
A montage of Eric shots follows. Many of them are from his modeling shoots. Of course, in every shot of him at the loft, he's not wearing a shirt. Wow! That noise was the sound of me floored with lust at the sight of his hairless chest and copper-rivet nipples! Whoo-hoo MTV and Bunim-Murray! Could this get any more titillating? ["Come on. I know he's an idiot, but you could grate cheese on his stomach." -- Wing Chun]
Julie tells us that there's a lot more to Eric than his looks. That's true, especially if you list off all his bad, annoying, and banal qualities. Her monologue is intercut with scenes of Eric working out -- ironically the only time when he is wearing a shirt, with SLEEVES, even, -- frolicking on the street, etc. She goes on to say that he's got an incredible body and "the face," and everything, but that he's also an incredible person on the inside. Okay, let's dissect him and see if that's true, shall we?
