Curly comes inside and asks Paris and Nicole if she can talk to them. She asks if they will help her pluck the chickens, and promises to show them how. Paris says she can't get near a dead animal. Is she a vegetarian, then? Paris promises that she will vomit if she looks at a dead animal. Curly asks Nicole if she will help, while Paris leans down and wipes Braxton's mouth with a cloth. Paris actually looked maternal there for a second. That's scary. Nicole also says she has "a thing about dead animals." Curly tells them to think about it, and promises it won't be that bad. Paris softly says, "No way."
Curly and Richard pluck the chickens themselves. Curly tells Janet that if you live in the country, you have to fend for yourself. She adds that she's seen times when they would have starved if they hadn't killed and cleaned their own chickens.
At dinner, everyone stares at each other and no one is eating the hard-earned chicken. Why are they eating off Styrofoam plates? I saw on the chore board that one kid has to do the dishes, so I know they have them. That's just weird. The editors intercut shots of Paris rubbing her chin with footage of the chickens, like she's thinking about those poor defenseless animals, when in reality, she's probably thinking, "...." Everyone starts eating. Braxton says that the chickens are pretty good. Paris says, "Tastes like chicken!" Everyone laughs, and Nicole adds that she likes it.
Richard asks if they've ever been to this part of the country before. Paris says that she only travels to Europe, L.A., or New York. Janet says that she couldn't imagine living in "a big city." That opens the floodgates for Paris and Nicole to shit all over Arkansas, as they agree that they would die if they lived there. I think there's a big difference between saying that you can't imagine living somewhere, and saying that you would die if you lived somewhere. After the laughter dies down, Nicole asks Justin and Cayne if they hang out at Wal-Mart. Paris asks what she's talking about. Nicole says she's just heard that. Paris asks, "What is Wal-Mart? Do they sell wall stuff?" Nicole starts cackling. I'm not going to comment, because Miss Hilton now claims that she knew what Wal-Mart was, and that she was just making a joke. I thought jokes were supposed to be, you know, funny, but what do I know? Nicole explains what Wal-Mart is, and says that people hang out there in the South. One of the boys mumbles something, and everyone laughs some more.
Janet shows the girls where they should sleep. Nicole says she sees a spider on the bed, and Janet tells them that it's actually a tick. Nicole asks, "Like with dogs?" Janet suggests that they check each other for ticks each night. Paris and Nicole ask if they can get ticks. Janet says that they can. Okay, that's kind of gross. Janet does not seem at all alarmed that she has ticks in her house. I've removed ticks from my dog, and I do not want one of those things near me. Plus, Lyme disease, although maybe the ticks in Arkansas don't carry that. Later, Paris and Nicole spot more bugs flying around. One of them lands on Nicole's head, and she starts freaking out while Paris, Justin, and Janet just laugh. Braxton runs in with a fly swatter. The cutest. Braxton swats some bugs. Paris and Nicole run out of the room while Braxton goes to town. He informs the girls that the bug will be icy cold in the morning, and Paris thanks him. I think when they have their pajamas on (t-shirts and pajama pants), Paris and Nicole almost look like normal people.
