Robert: My original plan was just to take the punishments and then I could win the HoH competition, but once those prizes started getting good I thought to myself – do I really want to be HoH? There are still a lot of people who are seen as threats in this house and I am all alone, at least that’s what everyone thinks. No one suspects that I have a deal with Zach. I am just pissed off at the fact that I lost §10,000 to some greedy bastard.
Kyra: I was really surprised at the fact that so many prizes have been won. My guess would be that Caleb went for the prizes as he seems like a selfish a**hole. On the other hand, I was glad I didn’t get any of the punishments since I didn’t win HoH. I mean, I really tried hard on them but someone was always a bit faster. Just look at Dane, he’s going to have to shave off his hair for nothing.
Chaz: I would have loved that dinner date with Steph, but since I was the outgoing HoH, I wasn’t allowed to play and take the prize. Too bad she didn’t choose to take it like I would have, but I understand it, she was trying to win HoH.
Karen: The worst thing about this HoH competition is that the winner is usually the one who took the 24 hour solitary confinement since it awards us the most points and then all of us basically don’t even have a chance to really talk with the HoH on who to put up or a chance to save ourselves with some kind of a deal. Hopefully, Charley is not the ditsy moron everyone thinks she is and she’ll think of a plan while being confined. I’m also hoping she remembers the deal us girls have.
Dane: I can’t believe that I have to go through with the shaving off part.
Robert: Why? It’s the only real haircut. I’m still not used to seeing all of you boys wearing those weird haircuts these days.
Dane: What kind of haircuts are you talking about?
Robert: Well, just look at yourself. You look like a doll and not like a man. Yeah, sure, you go to gym, but you seem to do it for the looks and not for what matters. It’s all that metrosexual nonsense pushed on young man these days through the media… It’s making you all look like and act like a bunch of sissies!
Kyra: The army’s made you a monster, Robert. You’re filled with prejudice and I don’t agree with what you’re saying at all. Muscles and an army haircut don’t make a man. His actions make him a man. And if what you’re saying is what you’re thinking, Dane is a much bigger man than you are in my books.
Robert: You are a girl, you don’t understand.
Kyra: I think we’re done here, Robert.
Robert: You’re not going to follow her like a dog?
Dane: You’re rude, you know that, right?!
Robert: I know that my opinion might not the popular one these days but you’ll see. The war will come once again and then you’ll be sorry about the fact we don’t have any proper men left in this country to defend us. And all of us, real men, will be dead by that point hopefully.
Dane: I can’t believe I’m going to ask you this but… The only reason I’m still in here with you is because… Well, since you were in the army, you know how to shave off hair, right? Charley is in the confinement and I need someone to do it.
Robert: I’ll do it, boy.
Dane: Hello everybody! *laughs* It’s me, Dane! And this is my brand new haircut! *laughs* Since Charley was in the confinement, Robert was the one who had to shave off my hair. Even though I was really pissed off at him for his comments today. He was so rude to Kyra.
Dane: How are you feeling?
Kyra: I’m fine. Don’t worry about it.
Dane: He’s an ass.
Kyra: Yeah, but we knew that, didn’t we? *laughs* It just pisses me off that people like that still exist. And they’re allowed to raise their children like that?! Instead of moving on from war and hate and teaching love and acceptance, he’s secretly wishing for it to come back just so his testosterone can run wild.
Dane: Not all of the guys are like that, Kyra.
Kyra: I know that, Dane. Don’t worry. You’re an incredible guy, Dane, and I’m really happy we’ve met!
Dane: Me too…
Dane: I’m sorry. I just thought… I’m sorry.
Kyra: No, it’s okay, Dane. I just didn’t expect this. I mean, I’m not looking for anything like that yet and we’re such great friends it would just…
Kyra: Dane, don’t go! Let’s talk it through…
All: *singing* Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to youuu…
All: *singing* Happy birthday to you, Karen, happy birthday to you!
Karen: They were all so kind, gosh, I was tearing up! It was such a lovely gesture! And they got up before me which was so strange as I’m usually one of the first ones up. The best part – Caleb didn’t come to sing to me. That was a genius move and I didn’t think he’d thought of it. It gives us a reason to stage up a fight!
Caleb: I hate singing so I just decided to stay in bed and let them embarrass themselves.
Robert: So, you’re missing your kids?
Karen: Of course! My birthday is probably the only day in the year we’re all together.
Robert: I’m sure they’ll make an exception this year and they’ll find one other date to surprise you together.
Karen: That’s sweet, Robert. I’d love to see that happen. Did you hear guys? If you’re watching and listening – mommy and granny Karen would love to get surprised this year! *laughs* Make it happen!
Karen: And what about you? Still missing your family?
Robert: Like crazy! But I’m doing this for them and I mean, I was always away before so it’s probably not so hard for them… It’s a lot harder for me now, though. You’d always have something that would take your mind from thinking about your loved ones in the army and now… There is so little you can do in this house and if you’re mostly alone, like myself, you’re basically left with nothing but your thoughts.
Karen: Oh, Robbie, if you’re ever in need of a good talk, I’m here.
Robert: Thank you, Karen!
Robert: *laughs* I always love it when random chats produce great outcomes! I played on Karen’s emotions as she is a woman and she bought it. Of course, I’m missing my family like crazy but why not say it out loud to someone who’s willing to listen and score some sympathy. Especially today, since it’s her birthday and she is missing her family even more than usually.
