Nehemiah finally gets through to the house and Danny organizes a way to get him out of jail by having the production front him his check. Rachel and Lacey rally around the project so that work will continue and they will meet their deadline. David, the gang's Instructor/Editor, pays them a visit and receives the bad news that Nehemiah is in the slammer. David has some doubts that the gang will be ready for their screening date, but the gang believes they can do it. Nehemiah returns to the house and explains he earned his trip to the pokey by hitting someone. Wes breaks it to him that he is possibly looking at another $4000 and up to a year in jail. After finding the guy he hit and apologizing, Nehemiah goes back to editing while the rest of the roomies are out partying. Wes returns home after a night of drinking and does what Wes does best, break stuff and cause trouble. Wes gets in Rachel's face after a confrontation over the phone and slaps her. Later, when he sobers up a bit, he cannot believe or remember the things he did that night. Nehemiah finishes up the rest of the editing and the project is done. Time for the screening, and Wes and Nehemiah go to the viewing in their very best Dumb And Dumber-style tuxedos.

Nehemiah's Actin' Up

Nov 08, 2005 Season 16 Episode 22

Wes can't seem to get his mind off the ladies, especially the frontrunner for his heart, Wren. He can't decide whether to continue what he has with her or to start playing the field again. Later the gang gets invited to a special screening of the documentary Dig! Wes and Danny ditch the invitation, claiming they have better things to do with their Friday night. At the screening, the rest of the gang meet and get advice from Dig! director Ondi Timoner. The next day, Ondi pays Nehemiah a visit at the house to give him some professional advice and a little pep talk. Nehemiah again takes on the responsibility to complete the editing but cannot seem to get anything done, much to Rachel and Lacey's chagrin. Wes and Johanna talk about their flirty relationship and how there are no strings attached - and that is what they love about it. Later at the bar, Johanna and Wes get a little hot and heavy in front of Wren, making her jealous just as Wes intended. The spectacle finally scores him what he's been dreaming of--a hook-up with Wren. The following night the gang hit the streets of Austin for a few beers. Later on, they can't seem to find Nehemiah. It turns out that, while he should have been in the editing room working on the documentary, he instead opted for jail. Those crazy Real Worlders, always picking a cell over that nice house - when will they learn?

SXSW All the Way

Oct 11, 2005 Season 16 Episode 18

South by Southwest is in full swing and the roomies are busy gathering footage for their documentary. First up is the band Halifax, whom everyone seems to like except for Lacey. When the band chills at the Real World house, Rachel develops a little crush on lead singer Mike. This leads her to drunkenly show off for him, diving into the basketball game and pulling it off the wall and breaking it. The sight of a broken basketball game brings out gloomy faces in the boys. Nehemiah blows a gasket and begins to belittle Rachel, which sends her into tears. The next morning Danny, Wes and Rachel hit the road to film the band Hellogoodbye at their campsite. While in the car, Danny mentions how much trash Lacey talks about everyone behind their back. After not being able to find the band, the three return home to a call from Forrest, the lead singer, wondering where they are. Lucky for them the band is camping the next day as well, but Rachel tries to pass off the interview to Lacey's team. Lacey, however, is having none of that. At any rate, Rachel, Danny, and Mel's second attempt to get Hellogoodbye on tape is a success. In celebration, Danny decides to take a leap off a cliff and convinces Mel to jump with him. Back at the editing room, Rachel comes across some surprising footage of Lacey talking smack about Rachel. The gang agrees that Rachel needs to confront Lacey about the footage and adds some educated guesses as to what she is going to say. Rachel shows Lacey the footage abd Lacey answers exactly as the roomies predicted. They should really use their powers for good.

Love and work don't always mix so well. Danny realizes how lucky he is to have such a great connection with Mel and asks her to be his girlfriend. SxSW starts and the gang jump into work mode--well, maybe just a few of them. The group finds out from their boss, Paul, that by early next week they must have a decent rough cut of their documentary or they can't go on their vacation. Most people would hunker down and get down to work, but love makes work take the backseat. Mel ignores her pager while on a lunch date with Danny. The two proceed to go A.W.O.L. instead of meeting up with the rest of the group to film an interview with the band Enon. Nehemiah and Lacey can't believe Mel's tardiness. Later that night, the gang runs into the band Halifax and decide to join them for a little fun. Nehemiah, however, finds drinking on the job completely unprofessional. The night leads to some drunken jealousy for Danny when a Halifax band member hits on Mel. The next day, Nehemiah confronts the other boys about their drinking the night before, to no avail. Nehemiah does not want somebody else's partying to keep him from this vacation. Danny, again, finds himself lost and not understanding if Mel wants to be with him. Mel and Katie have a talk about Danny, and Katie gives Mel the advice to let Danny "think he's right." During a sit down with Danny, Mel caves in and tells Danny that she is sorry and understands why he is mad. Mel explains to him that she just wants him to trust her. Trust is fine and well, but that documentary's not going to finish itself.
