Just as everything seemed quiet on the Western front – or Italian front – Lisa overheard Halfwit telling Charlie that he didn’t think she liked him much, and she doesn’t it seems.
“There are elements of this that are just nasty” Halfwit said to Charlie, to which he replied, “I don’t see nastiness from the people in here. No one doesn’t like you” he added, somewhat insincerely since he knows his best buddy Kris wouldn’t pee on Halfwit if he was on fire.
“I don’t think Lisa likes me” said Halfwit as Lisa walked up behind him.
“I don’t think you like me, Freddie” she said, hackles rising nicely and fake facial hair a’wobbling.
“I dislike you scheming against me and bitching behind my back” said Halfwit, taking his life in his hands…
“I’m not bitching against you and I’m not scheming against you, so you wanna get that out your head.
“I don’t know where you’re getting that from” she ranted, adding, “You’re paranoid. You’re not a fool. You’re playing the victim of the house.”
Well, that lit Halfwit’s blue touch paper…
“I’m playing the victim?!” he spluttered. “You’re the source of the reason why a lot of people don’t like me and don’t trust me.”
“I do like you, you can just be aggravating!” shouted Lisa back at him. “I’m allowed to have my opinion in the house” she yelled, adding, “I’ll tell you something; you don’t like me, I don’t like you, so I’ll tell you what, let’s not talk to each other.”
by that time, several of the others had gathered to watch the fireworks and Karly decided to add her twopennorth.
“Maybe it’s to do with the fact that you told people in here you’ve got a gameplan. Have you thought of that?”
Halfwit didn’t get much chance to respond while everyone else debated his gameplan.
“He’s gonna make out he’s the victim in this” Kris announced then told everyone they should just leave it.
“We’re not talking to you Freddie. We’re not talking to you Freddie. We’re not talking to you Freddie” he repeated in truly adult style as he stalked away.
Once everyone had shuffled off, Halfwit told a bemused Charlie, “My gameplan was to have as much fun as possible.”
“You single yourself out from everyone else” Charlie told him by way of response. “You don’t interact with the group.”
A fed up looking Halfwit sighed, “Certain people want somebody to take a fall here, because if somebody takes a fall, that means they don’t get nominated.”
Oh dear… I bet they’re not going to let that one lie.
