Susan sits at a table with Ricky.

SUSAN: "....and so then I got a marketing job with NASCAR."

SUSAN: "Why would you do that?"

RICKY: "Because I've really moved on. I've sent my application to The Real World....so I'm hoping to hear back from that. I'm putting a lot of my eggs into that basket, the MTV basket.

SUSAN: "You know Ricky, I have kept my mouth shut for a really, really long time."
